About Male Breast Reduction

Men with overdeveloped glandular tissue or localized fat in the chest area can be treated with male breast reduction. Gynecomastia afflicts up to 60 percent of men and is often the source of self-consciousness and embarrassment. We can help you rectify this problem with techniques that eliminate the excess tissue and fat to create a more sculpted appearance in the chest.

Male Breast Reduction Procedure

In most cases, surgery can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. A couple of different methods may be necessary to achieve desired results. If excess fatty tissue is the primary reason for the enlarged breast, then a simple liposuction or smartlipo procedure may be in order.


If more glandular tissue is present than fatty tissue, then a more invasive procedure may be in order to remove the tissue. In some extreme cases when large amounts of fat and glandular tissue are removed, an excess of skin is left over and is necessary to remove. The length and location of the incision usually depend on the amount of glandular tissue and skin that needs to be removed. Generally, the incisions are placed around the areola (nipple area), or natural creases for more severe cases.


Some men also choose liposuction or a tummy tuck to completely reshape and contour their abdomen.

Male Breast Reduction Recovery

Recovery time usually takes about 1 to 2 weeks, in which case patients can normally return their job if its physically undemanding. Patients will normally experience bruising, swelling, and soreness for the first few days. Vigorous physical activities should be avoided for up to 6 weeks, as they may damage the healing process.


  • Am I a good candidate for breast reduction?

    Ideal candidates have realistic expectations for the procedure, are in good medical health, can commit to proper recovery time, and have overdeveloped glandular tissue or localized fat in the chest area.

  • How much does a breast reduction procedure cost?

    Pricing varies based on body and skin types along with combined procedures performed. Please call or schedule a consultation for more information.
