Male Breast Reduction with Gynecomastia Tumescent Liposuction
Has it been a while since you've taken off your shirt at the pool? Are light, drapy shirts out of the question? It is common for men to acquire excess fat across the chest. Gynecomastia, also known as enlarged male breasts, affects men of all ages. With male breast tumescent liposuction, these patients can reduce gynecomastia, wear all types of shirts, and enjoy a more manly physique.
Having a tumescent liposuction surgeon reduce your enlarged male breast with liposculpture is much easier and safer than undergoing traditional liposuction. The process is simple:
- You are given a local anesthetic to numb the area.
- Your surgeon then places one or two small incisions on each side of the chest to begin the suctioning process with a cannula.
- Your tumescent liposuction surgeon uses slow, gentle movements to remove the fat, meaning limited pain, fewer bruises, and a rapid recovery for you. The entire tumescent liposculpture procedure usually lasts only about an hour and acts to reduce fat permanently. Tumescent Liposuction patients need only local sedation, and most patients are back at work in one or two days.
- Tumescent Liposuction is permanent. Once fat cells are removed from the body, they do not grow back.
- Tumescent Liposuction produces noticeable results, leaving you with a sculpted, contoured, and masculine frame.

Why choose male breast tumescent liposuction?
Gynecomastia tumescent liposuction reduces adipose tissue on the male breast, naturally sculpting the chest and restoring proportion to the body. Male breast reduction increases confidence, creates a more masculine physique, and makes it possible to wear form-fitting clothes. With gynecomastia tumescent liposuction, recovery is quick and post-op bruising and pain is minimal. Results are permanent, so you never have to worry about enlarged male breast tissue again.
What is male breast tumescent liposuction like?
Liposculpting is performed in a relaxing and luxurious spa-type setting with all the safety, sterility and standards of an operating room, under local anesthesia. Patients remain awake and alert during the entire procedure. First, the surgeon numbs the skin and places one or two small incisions on each side of the chest. Using gentle suction, excess fat is removed with a small cannula. The procedure lasts for about one hour, and patients walk out of the office with their new, sculpted physiques.
Am I a good candidate for male breast tumescent liposuction?
Tumescent Liposuction of the male breast is a safe procedure for most men with full or fatty chests with no hard glandular tissue. Anyone who is very thin but shows the appearance of male breasts might not be a good candidate. Such patients might have excess glandular tissue or "true gynecomastia" and will not benefit from tumescent liposuction. These patients might benefit from a surgical procedure called direct excision, designed to remove the glandular tissue. Only a consultation with the tumescent liposuction doctor can address these issues.
Can male breast tumescent liposuction be combined with other procedures?
Yes. Many patients choose to have their male breast liposculpture procedure performed in conjunction with other procedures. Of course, not all patients need tumescent liposuction on their other areas, so your surgeon can target the chest alone and perform this procedure by itself.
Will I have any scars or sagging skin after male breast tumescent liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction of the male breast leaves only a couple of small incision sites, each only about 3mm wide or less. The incision sites are closed with a small suture and heal within a day or two, fading into the natural color of the surrounding skin. Scarring does not usually occur. Hairy-chested men will not notice any scars.
Men under the age of 60 with good skin tone will generally not have sagging skin and will instead see an improvement in skin tone and firmness. All Renew patients receive a complimentary SkinTyte skin tightening treatment after the fat is removed, and time has allowed for healing and any additional swelling to subside.
Will this procedure change my nipples?
No. Gynecomastia tumescent liposuction does not change the size, color, or placement of your nipples.
What are the post-op procedures for male breast tumescent liposuction?
Patients generally experience only mild discomfort after the procedure. You can walk immediately afterward, enjoy light to medium activities, and return to work in a day or two. Some, but not all, patients experience mild bruising. A compression garment is worn around the chest to promote healing, reduce swelling and provide the best overall results. Some patients may experience swelling after the procedure. Good results are visible within three to four weeks; final results are seen within six months. While it does take a while for the swelling to subside, there is minimal to no pain involved. The most common discomfort patients experience is mild soreness, similar to the muscle ache that accompanies strenuous exercise.
