I have been reading all the reviews on the Gynecomastia surgery operations performed by Dr. Benjamin Herbosa posted on this forum even up to this time I had my surgery this morning, November 09, 2018. First, I would really like to thank all my kababayan who posted their positive feedback on the experience they had before, during and after the operations under Dr. Herbosa.
SALAMAT PO because I am a Gyne-free guy now. Nagtiwala po ako sa mga comments and feedback niyo. Now, this is the time that I should also share my experience to you guys and to those who want to get rid their manboobs or its nickname "Gynecomastia". 
Just like you guys, matagal ko na iniinda itong pagkakaroon ng Gyne, actually since I was 10 and now I am 28y/o. Before akala ko normal lang meron ganitong condition especially kung galing ka sa pagiging mataba but I noticed that even how hard I tried to reduce weight and maintain good diet, walang changes sa laki nya, in fact, yung chest ko lang naiiwan na mataba kahit nagbawas na ako ng timbang. There are times na sumasakit siya kapag nababangga or nalalamog kapag medyo nahahawakan (sorry for the term). Actually, nahihiya rin ako kapag inaasar ako ng gf ko ( now x hehe) and previous partners ko na mas malaki pa raw ang boobs ko kesa sa kanila. These experiences really made my confidence almost gone because of this condition. Even at work, I cannot wear uniform especially if it is cotton cloth talagang na-e-emphasize siya and the tendency nagiging cause para mapagtawanan. So now, dahil sa pagbabasa ko nitong mga nakalipas na linggo,  I found this forum on Gynecomastia and realized that there are many people who really suffer with this condition, not only physically but also psychologically. Dr. Benjamin Herbosa is actually the one in the top list of the Filipino doctors who are experts in this field. At first, I was skeptical kasi nababasa ko na sa isang clinic - Medicard, King's Court, Dela Rosa, Makati, niya ginagawa ang operation knowing that he is connected with Makati Med and is an active member of their association. But I was completely wrong kasi my reason pala bakit niya dun gusto i-perform this is because he considers the financially capability of their patients which is cheaper nga naman kung sa clinic niya gagawin kumpara sa magiging cost kung sa Makati Med. The clinic is actually great, clean, necessary equipment and facilities are there for the OR procedure, bonus na rin yung mga staff ng Medicard na sobrang effective sa customer service hehe especially to assistant OR Nurses na sila Nurse LJ and Nurse Rain. I visited the clinic a week before my operation this morning. I got Dr. Ben's email dito lang din sa forum and I started sending him messages and wala ako masabi dahil ang bilis magrespond sa email ni Dr. Ben. He requested me to send pictures of my chest and sched me for initial consultation, pag punta ko tinignan niya yung chest ko, ayun na ini-sched niya agad ako for operation kahit di niya pa nababanggit possible cost ng magiging operation ko kaya ako na mismo nagtanong kasi baka di ko rin kayanin dahil plan ko lang ay magpacheck lang muna. Grabe, napakabuti ni Dr. Ben hindi ako namroblema sa magiging cost at mabilis siya kausap hindi ko alam kung lahat ng doctors who conduct the same operation ay ganun. He is actually cool at parang 'di ka mahihiya kausap siya at sabihin lahat ng doubts and concerns mo.
(On the day of operation)
Dr. Ben scheduled my operation at 8 AM, 09 Nov 2018 but Nurse LJ informed me to be at the clinic at 7:30 in the morning. Dumating ako ng 7AM kasama ang aking ina at pamangkin para lang sure ako na kapag groggy after the operation ay may aalalay. Dr. Ben came at 9AM nagmessage pala siya kagabi na 9AM na because of equally important activity niya. Nonetheless, wala naman problem dun dahil nagawa pa namin kumain ng mama ko at kasama kong bata. Before the operation, Nurse Rain checked my BP and provided me documents for sign and afterwards kinausap ako ni Dr. Ben at sinabi yung magiging procedure. Naglagay na siya mark sa chest ko at sinabi na medyo challenging sa part niya kasi maliit daw yung Nipple Areola ko kasi dun daw maghihiwa para tanggalin yung breast tissue. Nagkwento siya na kapag maliit daw ang nipple areola usually some of the surgeons who perform operation on gyne ay ine-extend daw ang hiwa sa ibang part around the chest pero sabi niya HE WILL NOT DO THAT kasi gusto niya after ng surgery parang "HINDI KA NAG UNDERGO NG SURGERY" (sorry ha, capslock kasi grabe si Dr. Ben, feeling ko kasi sobrang napapabilib ako at naging confident ako sa magiging outcome ng operation). After that, Nurse LJ and Nurse Rain assisted me to the room where I can change my top shirt. Ayun na at pinahiga na ako at nilinis na yung chest area ko. 
During the operation
Dr. Ben told me to bear the pain as he injected local anesthesia. Masakit siya for few seconds but did eventually subside. After that, mapapansin mo na medyo my ginagawa na sila kasi nakikita mo na my kinukuha na sila mga equipments pero wala naman pain at kakausapin ka ni Doc from time to time para malaman kung may pain kasi maglalagay ulit siya anesthesia. I will not sugar coat it pero my pain lalo na kapag lumalamin ang "paghukay" papalapit sa muscle area parang kang nagro-ground or talagang mararamdaman mo may naputol hehe Nakapikit ako during the whole operation hehe minimal ang pain pero maglalagay ulit si Doc ng anesthesia. Doc Ben together with his assistant Dr. and 2 Nurses finished the operation at exactly 1 hour. Grabe sobra akong satisfied kasi nung nakahiga pa lang ako, napansin ko na wala na yung cone-shaped at di' na angat ang nipples ko. ( I have attached the pictures).
Masaya ako sa result, siguro mas liliit pa raw ang boobs ko pag galing kasi natural na namamaga pa siya, pero sa itsura niya satisfied na ako. Hindi kinuha ni Doc Ben lahat ng glands kasi magmumukhang flat chested ako, 'yan ang sabi niya. Nakabandaged na ako and Monday, 12 Nov, tatanggalin ang benda. Hindi pwede magbuhat ng mabigat, pwede naman maglinis ng katawan but avoid to wet the wounds. Kung may pain magtake ng gamot na ire-reseta ni doc. BONUS AY PWEDE RAW AKO MAG INOM basta in Moderation pa rin haha (di ko yan napigilan itanong, pasyensya na) Mag attach ulit ako ng pictures pag tanggal ng benda.
Guys, I am sharing this experience para sabihin na my pag asa sa condition na ito at may pag asa na my makitang doctor like Dr. Ben na sobrang makakaintindi sa condition mo.

I am locking this thread.  It is too difficult to remove a thread once it has been answered. 
The reason for locking it is simple.  We expect a person to praise their doctor when they have has surgery with a good outcome. We do not expect that praise to look like a full blow advertising brochure. with details of the procedure, contact information and prices.  It is especially suspect when the person making the statements is a person who has a relatively new account and it appears they only came here to advertise.
