Reduce Enlarged Male Breasts

A male breast reduction is a cosmetic procedure to reduce enlarged male breasts. Most often, this can be accomplished with minimally-invasive liposuction alone. In some cases, a surgical procedure – also called gynecomastia surgery – to remove excess glandular tissue and/or reshape deformities is necessary. Please also see Female Breast Reduction.

Frequently Asked Questions

A male breast reduction is designed to be permanent, especially if you have excess tissue and skin surgically removed. If your procedure is done by liposuction, the fat cells are also permanently removed, but it is not a guarantee against new fat cells accumulating if you don’t maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. To learn more, also see Male Breast Reduction.

If you are affected physically and psychologically by your enlarged male breasts, are in relatively good health, and have realistic expectations for the procedure’s results, you are a candidate for a male breast reduction. A personal consultation with our plastic surgeon will help you determine the scope of your procedure.

There are two ways you can have enlarged male breasts reduced: Either by surgery, or by liposuction. Often, liposuction is sufficient and no surgery is needed, avoiding the scars and recovery time associated with it. Liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure with patients able to return to regular activities the next day as tolerated. If you have a lot of excess skin due to aging or recent weight loss, a surgical removal may be necessary. 

Depending on your body type and which type of breast reduction you need, you may be back to normal within 24-48 hours after the procedure. Liposuction patient typically return back to regular activities as tolerated the next day. Surgical patients require 3-5 days of recovery and are advised to wait 2 weeks before resuming strenuous exercise or heavy lifting.
