Male Breast ReductionGynecomastia Surgery; achieve a flat, masculine chest

While seldom talked about, a large number of male patients seek out surgery for a medical condition known as gynecomastia, or enlargement of the male breasts. It is estimated that 40-60% of males are affected by the ailment.

Gynecomastia has no known cause, although it has been linked with drug use, hormonal imbalance and certain illnesses, and can affect just one breast or both. As a top Los Angeles male breast reduction surgeon, Dr. Lahijani is highly successful in treating this condition. Male breast reduction surgery has been known to restore a more traditionally masculine contour to the chest area by removing excess fat, tissue and skin, improving self-confidence in the process.

Gynecomastia Treatment Los Angeles

Who is a good candidate for gynecomastia treatment?

Gynecomastia treatment may be a good option for Los Angeles patients who

  • suffer from disproportionately large breasts
  • experience embarrassment and self-consciousness over their appearance
  • are at a normal, healthy weight
  • are in good health, both physically and mentally
  • are non-smokers and do not abuse drugs, marijuana, alcohol or steroids
  • have found other methods of breast reduction, including diet and exercise, to be inconsequential
  • have realistic expectations and a positive outlook

Choosing the best practice for your Los Angeles male breast reduction

The office of Dr. Saul Lahijani has a reputation for personalized, concierge service, outstanding outcomes, and a compassionate team of dedicated, Los Angeles board certified plastic surgeons, nurses and techs who truly cater to your vision for improvement. Each surgery is customized to the patient's torso and overall body type, resulting in a taut, streamlined aesthetic that appears completely natural. With our own state-of-the-art, accredited surgical center on premises, your experience is one of seamless comfort, privacy and discretion from your first phone call to your final follow-up appointment.

Taking the first step

Getting started with gynecomastia treatment requires an in-depth consultation with your doctor. Dr. Lahijani offers a confidential and complimentary initial meeting of 30-40 minutes, during which he can help determine if the procedure is best for your needs. If excess fat and/or skin is the main cause of the enlarged breasts rather than true gynecomastia (overgrowth of glands and tissue), a treatment such as liposuction may be preferable. To make the best assessment, Dr. Lahijani will examine you, perform any necessary tests, collect your medical history and records, discuss your goals and wishes, and present you with a comprehensive treatment plan for moving forward. Most clients find that by the time they leave the office, they have a clear picture of what to expect from their upcoming Beverly Hills male breast reduction, along with a sense of ease and excitement.

For your convenience, we see male breast reduction patients at a variety of office locations, including in Beverly Hills, Palmdale and Valencia. Out-of-town patients are welcome and encouraged to contact the office, as in some cases the doctor can accommodate virtual consultations.

What can I expect from gynecomastia treatment?

Male breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes approximately 1-4 hours, depending on your anatomy and on whether one or both breasts require treatment. After incisions are made at the areolas, the doctor will excise the glandular breast tissue responsible for the enlargement, being careful to keep scarring to a minimum. If there is also an excess of fat and/or skin, the doctor may perform additional contouring procedures such as liposuction for a more comprehensive outcome.

Recovery

Once the surgery is complete, the doctor may install drainage tubes to help facilitate healing. These are typically removed within a few days. A compression garment, worn for 1-2 weeks, is also a standard post-surgical feature that assists the chest in conforming to its new, improved shape.

Bruising, swelling and mild discomfort are to be expected, but these can be managed with pain medications and antibiotics prescribed by your doctor. Clients generally find that they are able to return to work and normal activities within around 3-5 days.

Results

Results will vary from patient to patient, but most clients at our practice find continued improvement over the course of 3-6 months as the bulk of the swelling subsides. Gynecomastia surgery is considered permanent, and is best supported by a healthy, drug-free lifestyle that includes exercise. Dr. Lahijani is available 24/7 to answer questions should any concerns arise, and he will conduct thorough follow-up visits to ensure your recovery is progressing as expected.
