Can Guys Have Their Chest Sculpted?

Posted December 09, 2019 in Gynecomastia

Sometimes a strict diet and gym routine just doesn’t cut it for men who want a slimmer, contoured, and more masculine chest.

Luckily, men can have their chest looking more sculpted, defined, and masculine by having gynecomastia surgery.

Gynecomastia surgery can help men who are unhappy with their overly large breasts by removing excess glandular tissue, skin, and fat from the chest to restore a firmer chest and midsection.

This surgery, along with other techniques, can remove stubborn excess fat, glandular breast tissue, and fat.

Am I a Good Candidate for Gynecomastia?

You may be the right candidate for gynecomastia if you have:

  • Bothersome excess skin and fat
  • Rounded breasts
  • Creases under the breasts created by excess tissue
  • Love handles protruding from the sides of your stomach

What Can Gynecomastia Surgery Correct?

Last year, nearly 25,000 men received gynecomastia surgery or male breast reduction surgery, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Gynecomastia surgery removes excess fat and tissue either by liposuction or excision to restore flatter, firmer, and more masculine chest contour.
Gynecomastia can be caused by steroids and marijuana use, health conditions like tumors, or genetics.


A hollow tube is inserted into the incisions to disrupt and remove the fat cells. Incisions are typically made along the areola or within the armpit.
The results of using liposuction can leave you with a masculine chest, eliminate the crease that results from fatty tissue under the breasts, and erase love handles that protrude from the sides.


This technique can be performed with liposuction, but can also be performed as a standalone procedure for patients who have excessive glandular tissue that cannot be removed from liposuction.
Excess skin and underlying tissue is removed to tighten the chest contours, resulting in a tighter, slimmer, and more masculine chest.

How Else Can I Achieve a Sculpted Chest?

Dr. Bonaldi offers a male chest contouring procedure that uses liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue around the male breast.

How Do I Maintain My Contoured Chest Results?

The results of your breast reduction surgery can be permanent if you maintain a steady, healthy routine afterward.
Since this surgery does not halt future breast tissue and fat development from accumulating, procedures in the future may be needed to reach your aesthetic goals.
If you experience weight gain or take certain medications, the results may become less noticeable.
To help maintain your sculpted chest physique, you should continue living a healthy lifestyle with a regular exercise routine.
