Gynecomastia Surgery in Los Angeles

Los Angeles Gynecomastia Surgery at West Empire Aesthetics

Confidence to Go Shirtless

Many guys avoid removing their shirts or opt for loose-fitting clothes and routinely avoid sexual relationships. A sizable portion of the male population in Los Angeles suffers from gynecomastia, or "man boobs," the common name for enlarged male breasts. Obesity-related excess fat is a significant contributor to the disorder. But it's possible that some breast gland tissue is also present.

Men suffering from gynecomastia often feel ashamed by the condition, leading to humiliation, anxiety, and depression. For men who are sick of hiding their chests due to gynecomastia, surgical help is available at West Empire Aesthetics. The greatest option might be Gynecomastia Surgery in Los Angeles with Dr. Mort Rizvi.

What is Gynecomastia Surgery?

A More Masculine Physique

If you are a man and are bothered by overly large breasts, Gynecomastia Surgery can alleviate the problems, both physical and emotional, associated with this issue. Many conditions, such as an abundance of estrogen and testosterone, can cause this condition. Some reasons for this condition can include:

  • Puberty
  • Use of anabolic steroids
  • Aging
  • Obesity
  • Underlying health conditions such as kidney disease or hyperthyroidism
  • Medications
  • Alcohol or drug consumption

With Gynecomastia Surgery Los Angeles patients have an effective way to restore a more masculine appearance. This issue often goes away naturally in young men and adolescents, but in grown men, this condition often persists.

What are the benefits of Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia Surgery Los Angeles


Patients who choose to have Gynecomastia Surgery can expect a more masculine, form-flattering appearance of their chest. Removing excessive fat around the breast area can also relieve chafing and skin irritation under the breast. You will also feel more self-confident, and you will have enhanced self-esteem. You will feel more confident and can engage in more physical activities.

Your Gynecomastia Surgery Consultation

Chest Out

Many men keep their insecurities close to their chests. During your consultation, you will be in a judgment-free environment where you can share your aesthetic goals with Dr. Rizvi. Together, you will be able to map out a plan to get you a proportionate chest that will flatter your body and allow you to feel confident in your own skin.

Your Gynecomastia Surgery Procedure

A Lean Look

Dr. Rizvi will use general anesthesia for your surgery. We can perform the surgery in three ways depending on the type of tissue you want to remove. If you have fatty tissue only at the breasts, we can perform liposuction on that area through tiny, hidden incisions. If you have glandular tissue and fatty tissue, we will perform liposuction with excision of the glandular tissue through an incision at the areola. Finally, for those men with very large breasts and sagging skin, your incision will be closed around your areola, where we will remove the tissue and tighten the skin. Gynecomastia surgery usually takes about one to two hours.

Gynecomastia Surgery Results

Look Better Immediately

Gynecomastia results are visible immediately after surgery. While there may be some swelling and bruising after the surgery, this will diminish over time. Your final results will take three to six months to be completely visible, but you will notice results right away, and results will be long-lasting. Unless you engage in activities that may exacerbate the growth of male breast tissue—like smoking marijuana or taking steroids—you shouldn’t have a recurrence of this issue. Scarring is also minimal and will fade over time to become virtually unnoticeable.

Gynecomastia Recovery and Aftercare

Fast Recovery

Because this is an outpatient procedure, Los Angeles Gynecomastia Surgery patients will be able to go home the same day of your surgery. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home after completing your procedure. There is relatively little post-operative pain, but what little there is can be alleviated with over-the-counter medications. Dr. Rizvi will provide detailed instructions on optimizing your results, but at a minimum, you will need to wear a compression garment and avoid strenuous activity for three weeks. Swelling and bruising go away after the first or second week. Please avoid weight lifting and other strenuous lifting until the doctor has cleared you for that activity.
