Hi Respected Doctor ,
I m suffering from this man boobs problem. I am not sure i do have gynecomastia or its just chest fat but i do have puffy nipples which always make me embarrass to remove my shirt …could you plz tell me how much will be cost if i go through all these tests which you mention like CT scan and all other blood tests and all these are covered in medicare ?
If you have puffy nipples, it is likely that there may be some glandular tissue causing this ie it could be gynaecomastia. However, to make a definitive diagnosis, we usually order an ultrasound as well as a set of blood tests to determine hormone levels. These tests can be put through a bulk billing provider. Either way, if it is fat or glandular tissue, we can help you to remove this surgically with liposuction and surgical removal of glandular tissue. We have a special technique of doing this which leaves you with virtually invisible scars.
