What Is Breast Liposuction?
Men sometimes develop enlarged breast tissue, which can be distressing. Commonly referred to as man boobs, its medical term is gynecomastia. This condition is caused by hormonal imbalances that lead to the accumulation of fat deposits in the chest. While it occurs in both men and women, the social stigma around gynecomastia in men only adds to the discomfort, shame and even depression felt by the men who suffer from it.
Several medical solutions exist to combat gynecomastia, including male breast fat removal. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 40 percent of the men who underwent breast liposuction reported a significant boost in self-esteem after the procedure. If you suffer from gynecomastia, breast liposuction can help you too.

While gynecomastia can affect men of all ages, it tends to be more prevalent among adolescents and men over the age of 50. Gynecomastia makes you feel uncomfortable about the appearance of your breast.

Am I a Good Candidate for Male Breast Liposuction?
Ideal candidates for breast liposuction have good skin elasticity and localized fat, limited to the breast area. For a gynecomastia diagnosis, your doctor identifies excess tissue that’s glandular or fat-based. If you have a significant amount of loose skin, that requires a more complex surgical procedure.
If your skin has lost its firmness or if a large amount of tissue requires removal, your cosmetic surgeon may recommend additional procedures to achieve your desired results. You’re a good candidate for male breast liposuction surgery if you have:
- A stable weight
- Overall good health
- Excess fat on your breast that hasn’t responded to diet and exercise
- An asymmetrical breast shape that bothers you
- Clothes that feel tight around your breast due to excess fat
- A desire to improve your breast profile
- Realistic expectations
Additionally, carefully consider the costs involved, as well as the potential benefits before making a decision. Prices for the procedure typically start at $6,400. Consult with a cosmetic surgery expert like Dr. Shokrian if you’re considering liposuction for your breast.
What Does the Lateral Breast Liposuction Procedure Involve?
During a male breast liposuction, Dr. Shokrian removes excess fat from your chest area. This procedure targets both men and women who want to reduce the amount of breast fat, although breast liposuction isn’t the same thing as a breast reduction. Lateral breast liposuction is an outpatient procedure that usually involves:
You’re given general anesthesia so you’re asleep during the surgery.
Your plastic surgeon makes small incisions in inconspicuous areas of your breast, typically in your armpits or along the nipple line.
The NYC surgeon then inserts a thin cannula through the incisions to break up and suction out fat deposits. Your surgeon may also remove glandular tissue.
Once the desired contour is achieved, the incisions are closed with stitches or adhesive strips.
Most people are very satisfied with the outcome of breast liposuction, reporting a flatter, more evenly contoured breast shape and the ability to wear fitted clothing with confidence. As with any surgery, there are minor risks, but you reduce those risks when you put your trust in an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Shokrian.

What Can I Expect after the Procedure?
Lateral breast liposuction creates a more athletic, toned look in your breast. Male breast liposuction helps you feel more confident about your appearance. But liposuction doesn’t eliminate all chest fat, doesn’t tighten loose skin and doesn’t alter the position of your nipples. During your recovery, you can expect to:
- Take a few days off from work and other daily activities
- Experience some discomfort, bruising and swelling for one to two weeks
- Wear a compression garment for two to four weeks
- Follow a low-impact exercise routine
- Take pain medications as needed and directed
- Have to drink plenty of water
- Avoid sun exposure until the healing process is complete
The final result depends on the amount of fat removed and how well you heal. Your final shape isn’t evident for several months. Maintaining your look long-term requires maintaining a stable weight.
