Gynecomastia / Male Chest Fat Liposuction
If you’re embarrassed by “man boobs”, chest fat liposuction can be an effective treatment for reducing or removing fatty deposits. The stubborn chest fat, which doesn’t respond to diet and exercise, may be inherited. Almost all male chest or breast enlargement is benign, nevertheless, this “label” can still be alarming for men as baring their chest can be uncomfortable.
What causes gynecomastia?
The most common cause of gynecomastia as an adult is weight gain. Gynecomastia can also occur because of endocrine disorder, anabolic steroid use -seen in bodybuilders- and other inherited diseases.
Most boys going through puberty have some enlargement of their breast tissue. In general no treatment for this type of gynecomastia is required as it usually resolves on its own at the end of puberty. However sometimes the breast tissue or adipose doesn’t completely resolve and it persists into adulthood.
Gynecomastia Liposuction or Chest Lipo Procedure
With this specific procedure, the entire chest area has to be numbed with tumescent anesthesia, rather than the breast region alone. Secondly, very small cannulas are inserted to gently remove the fat from the area in question.
This procedure can be done with just local anesthesia as an outpatient or office procedure allowing you to be awake. Dr. Wright will be able to talk you through the procedure, and ask you to adjust positions if necessary. Dr. Wright further uses laser to melt the fat faster and assist the liposuction. During the pre-consultation, the process will be mapped out, so you’ll know exactly what to expect. The Laser Lipo and Vein Center has a team of highly skilled and trained professionals, who will work hand-in-hand to ensure your comfort and satisfaction before, during, and after chest fat liposuction.
Benefits of Chest Liposuction
Male Chest Liposuction has many advantages, including:
- A Brief Recovery Period – typically you can resume the regular routine after just two days.
- Immediate Results – you will see the effects of the lipo surgery right away.
In addition to these benefits, you can feel more confident, attractive and motivated to take on the world, without the fear of “man boobs” hanging over your shoulder.
As a special note, men with enlarged glandular tissues will sometimes need to have this surgically removed, since liposuction only targets fatty cells. Our experts can help you create a plan of action, if the cause of your enlargement is overgrown glandular tissue.

My experience with Dr. Wright and his staff was exceptional. I have had two liposuction procedures performed by Dr. Wright and both were very successful. I would recommend Dr. Wright and his staff highly. The staff was professional and helpful with after care and follow-up appointments. If I had any other needs they would be on the top of my list.
