RIGHT FOR YOU?
IS MALE BREAST REDUCTION RIGHT FOR YOU?
Male breast reduction isn’t for everyone. To be considered a candidate for the procedure, you should be close to your ideal body weight and possess firm skin and good elasticity. You should also be a non-smoker and free of any serious medical conditions or illnesses that may impair healing.
As long as you meet those requirements and want to address overly feminine breasts that prevent you from showing off your ideal body to the world, there is a strong chance that male breast reduction is right for you.
To be sure, reach out today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Emer in West Hollywood. They will walk you through everything you need to know about male breast reduction and will help you determine if the procedure can accomplish your unique goals.
WHAT to expect
What CAN I Expect DURING MALE BREAST REDUCTION?
General anesthesia is administered for male breast reduction surgery. You will be completely asleep throughout the entire procedure.
Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Emer will begin the liposuction procedure to remove excess fatty breast tissue. He will make a very small, discreet incision on the underside of the areola, right at the junction of the areola and the chest skin.
Through this incision, he can access and remove fat cells with liposuction. To ensure aesthetic results, Dr. Emer uses his advanced sculpting technique to feather out the edges of the chest to achieve a smooth, natural transition to the thinner tissues.
If you have a moderate amount of firm, fatty breast tissue, liposuction alone will often break down the tissue and allow Dr. Emer to sculpt a more defined chest. This is the option most men prefer, as it involves minimal post-procedure marks and a moderate recovery period.
If your breast tissue can’t be removed with liposuction alone, Dr. Emer’s expert plastic surgeon will excise the remaining tissue surgically. Through a small incision in the underarm or along the bottom of the areola, the plastic surgeon can remove excess glandular tissue to create a flatter chest. Once the glandular tissue is removed, targeted liposuction can be used to further improve the contour of your chest and ensure natural-looking results.
The plastic surgeon can then adjust the nipples and areolas. If needed, the plastic surgeon can reposition the nipples and/or reduce the size of the areolas to better complement your new chest contours. The plastic surgeon will then close and dress the incisions.

What to Expect After Gynecomastia Surgery
You will receive personalized aftercare instructions to guide you through your male chest reduction recovery. These instructions will include information on:
- NHow to care for your incision sites
- NPrescribed medications
- NActivity restrictions
- NWhen to schedule follow-up visits
Most patients are able to resume light activities and return to work within one or two weeks. To ensure optimal healing, it is important to rest and avoid strenuous activities as directed by Dr. Emer. Your follow-up appointments will allow Dr. Emer to monitor your healing progress and advise you when you can return to your normal routine.
Male Breast Reduction Results
Though swelling is normal after gynecomastia surgery, results of your treatment will be noticeable right away. You can expect ongoing, gradual improvements over several weeks as the area heals.
Your total recovery time will depend on your body’s natural healing process. On average, swelling subsides and healing is complete after about three to six months. At that point, you can enjoy your final results.
How Much Does Male Chest Reduction Cost?
The price of gynecomastia surgery depends on the extent of your specific procedure. Some patients can achieve their desired improvements with liposuction only. Others require a combination of lipo and surgical removal of glandular tissue. Prior to scheduling your male chest reduction surgery, you will receive complete pricing details for your treatment.
