A Flatter, Firmer Upper Body With Male Breast Reduction in Los Angeles

Having great pecs is nice. But enlarged breasts on men may not be caused by your workout. While both men and women are born with a certain amount of breast tissue, this tissue is normally very minimal in males. Unfortunately, there are times when young men may develop enlarged breasts, either suddenly or over time.

Gynecomastia is the name of the condition where one or both breasts on a male become(s) enlarged. It happens in 60% of all men, and is usually caused by hormone imbalance.

If this has happened to you, male breast reduction surgery may be able to help.

Benefits of Male Breast Reduction in Los Angeles


When your breasts are back in line with your masculine identity, it enhances your confidence and self-esteem.


Male breast reduction can stop the pain—and self-consciousness—that can happen during hard physical exercise like running and jumping.


Gynecomastia surgery can help your back, boost your self-esteem, and help determine other issues that might need to be addressed.

The Male Breast Reduction Process

What to Expect



It starts with a personal consultation with your trained and licensed Younique provider. During this one-on-one, they’ll discuss your current figure, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. If your provider determines that male breast reduction in Los Angeles is the best option, your surgery can be scheduled, and you’ll be filled in on the pre-surgery preparation details.



There are various treatment methods involving liposuction that are effective at reducing male breasts. While traditional methods require general anesthesia, many newer procedures only require local anesthesia. By completely numbing the targeted area, you can now undergo liposuction while awake!

Reduction surgery involves a small incision in the breast in order to remove the excess fat. If the patient has a glandular issue, the doctor will make the incision a little bit larger under the areola and remove the component. You will be given a compression vest after your surgery that will help minimize any swelling and also minimize the empty space in each breast.



Your recovery timeline from gynecomastia surgery will depend on the chosen treatment method. Patients will need to take work off for the 7 days following this procedure. Though we recommend a minimum of 7 days, many patients take 14 days. Full recovery can be expected to take about 4 to 6 weeks.
