Rock the Body You Deserve

  • Refine and enhance the contours of the chest
  • Boost your self-esteem

Male Chest Reduction Procedures We Offer

At Allure Medical, we utilize advanced techniques tailored to effectively reduce enlarged male breast tissue. Our board-certified plastic surgeons have specialized expertise in performing these procedures successfully.

We offer patients two main options for permanent male breast reduction:

  1. Laser liposuction such as SmartLipo or CoolLipo – This inserts a small device through a tiny incision near the armpit to break up and dissolve excess fatty deposits and breast gland tissue. It is done under local anesthesia and sedation for comfort.
  1. Gynecomastia tissue removal – For significant glandular overgrowth, a small incision is made around the areola after liposuction to directly extract any remaining breast tissue.

In most cases, the skin tightens on its own after underlying tissue removal without needing excision. When needed, scars from incisions are minimized and fade over time.

Both procedures are outpatient with little discomfort. Our skilled specialists help patients achieve a significant reduction in breast size for a more masculine chest profile.

What Is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the medical term for the enlargement of the male breasts due to excess growth of glandular breast tissue. It can occur in one or both breasts.

This benign growth is not itself dangerous. However, it can cause psychological distress related to appearance and self-assuredness in severe cases.

Gynecomastia is different from fatty pseudo-gynecomastia due to increased fatty tissue rather than glandular overgrowth.

Diagnosing True Gynecomastia

To determine the cause of breast enlargement, our providers complete a health assessment and physical exam.

They check for key signs of gynecomastia, including:

  • Enlarged area under and around the nipples
  • Rubbery, firm glandular tissue
  • Nodules or masses beneath the nipple
  • Asymmetrical chest appearance

Tests may be ordered to assess hormones, rule out cancers, or identify underlying conditions.

Your examination results will dictate whether you have true gynecomastia or another form of breast enlargement.

Recognizing the Signs

Gynecomastia often emerges during periods of shifting hormones like puberty or andropause. However, men can develop enlarged breast tissue at any age.

Commonly reported symptoms include:

  • Swollen, tender breasts
  • Nipple sensitivity or discharge
  • Feelings of embarrassment about chest appearance
  • Avoidance of activities that reveal the upper torso area

You may only notice a small amount of extra fullness. Or your symptoms could be more pronounced. Either way, we can help.

What Causes Gynecomastia in Males?

Gynecomastia in males is caused by hormonal imbalances where estrogen levels rise relative to testosterone, leading to breast tissue overgrowth. Natural hormone fluctuations, medications, obesity, medical conditions, and genetics can contribute.

Natural Hormone Fluctuations

During puberty, the natural rise and fluctuation of hormones like estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone as a boy goes through adolescence can temporarily cause gynecomastia. 

Up to 70% of teenage boys will experience some breast tissue enlargement during this time, which typically goes away on its own as hormones stabilize.

As men age and undergo andropause, testosterone production starts to naturally decrease while estrogen levels remain steady or even rise due to factors like increased body fat percentage. 

This altered testosterone-to-estrogen ratio allows estrogen to become abnormally dominant, which can trigger gynecomastia.

Lifestyle Factors

  • Obesity leads to higher levels of the enzyme aromatase which converts testosterone to estrogen in fat tissue. 
  • This generates an excess of estrogen that can stimulate breast tissue overgrowth. Losing weight helps lower aromatase and estrogen, often reversing obesity-related gyno.

Medications and Substances

  • Certain prescription medications like heart drugs, ulcer medications, antidepressants, antibiotics, and anticancer treatments have been linked with gynecomastia as a side effect. 
  • They influence hormone metabolism and levels in the body, with anti-androgens directly inhibiting testosterone’s effects.
  • Anabolic steroid abuse and drugs like alcohol, heroin, and marijuana also impact hormone balance.

Medical Conditions

  • Diseases like liver failure, kidney failure, testicular tumors, and hyperthyroidism can alter the relative levels of sex hormones through different mechanisms. This results in disproportionately high estrogen compared to testosterone.
  • Treating the underlying medical issue may resolve gyno symptoms in these cases.

Genetic Factors

  • Rare genetic disorders such as Klinefelter syndrome are associated with gynecomastia. Genetic differences related to hormone receptors or metabolism can make certain men more prone to developing enlarged breast tissue.

How Common Is Gynecomastia  Among Men?

Gynecomastia is surprisingly common among men, especially during particular life stages when hormones fluctuate. However, enlarged male breasts can develop at any age.


  • 60-90% of male newborns experience transient gynecomastia in the first weeks of life due to exposure to maternal estrogens.
  • This breast tissue enlargement normally resolves within a few weeks after birth as estrogen levels drop.

Teen Boys

  • During adolescence, estimates suggest around 4-69% of teenage boys develop some degree of gynecomastia.
  • The median rate is approximately 30-35% among pubertal males.
  • This is attributed to the natural rise and fall of different hormones during puberty.
  • The breast tissue growth tends to resolve within 1-2 years as hormones balance out.

Middle-Aged and Older Men

  • In males aged 50-69 years, studies report 24-70% show signs of gynecomastia.
  • It is often asymptomatic in this age group.
  • Declining testosterone and increasing estrogen likely contribute to higher rates among aging men.

Potential Causes at Any Age

  • While some life stages make gynecomastia more likely, various factors can cause hormone imbalances leading to breast tissue growth in men of any age.
  • Medications, health conditions, genetics, obesity, and more influence susceptibility.

What Is the Success Rate of Men’s Gyno Surgery?

One study published in the World Journal of Plastic Surgery followed 27 male patients who underwent surgical gynecomastia correction. The results showed a total success rate of 92.6% in reducing breast size to an acceptable male contour based on the patient’s own assessment.

In a study in ClinicHunter, 100% of men who underwent male breast reduction surgery reported good or very good aesthetic results and resolution of symptoms.
