How Do Men Get Gynecomastia?

There are a variety of factors that can contribute to the development of gynecomastia in men. Among the most common attributes which candidates of a male breast reduction exhibit are:

  • Overdeveloped breast tissue that resulted from puberty
  • Overdeveloped breast tissue that resulted from steroid/growth hormone usage during muscle building
  • Overdeveloped breast tissue that resulted from being overweight/excessive weight loss
  • Enlarged breasts due to endocrine problems
  • Enlarged breasts due to long-term recreational drug use
  • Enlarged breasts due to long-term use of certain medicines or herbal supplements
  • Enlarged breasts due to hereditary factors

Still, there is no single contributory factor that determines the onset of gynecomastia. Based in Beverly Hills, gynecomastia surgeon Dr. Dadvand treats each patient on a case-by-case basis, tailoring your treatment to your specific needs.

The Surgery

Dr. Dadvand understands that men are sometimes embarrassed to acknowledge the issue and seek help. It is for this reason that he makes the process as easy and as simple as possible. Your consultation appointment will be centered around examining the particulars of your condition and explaining to you exactly how Dr. Dadvand plans to move forward with your treatment.

Most often general anesthesia is administered to the patient, but IV and local anesthesia can also be used. The intention of the surgery is, first and foremost, to reduce excess fat tissue. Dr. Dadvand will do this by incision and extraction or through liposuction, depending on the patient and the types of gynecomastia. The end result remains the same across the board, however. You will enjoy the benefits of a flatter chest that suits your body without the worry of looking like work has been done.

Through years of experience working with gynecomastia patients from Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, Dr. Dadvand has mastered the art of minimizing the signs of surgery. You will be left with little to no scarring after your male breast reduction. Swelling is common after the procedure and will be kept under control by a foam pad placed over the region immediately after surgery. In general, there is minimal bruising and most swelling decreases by 4-6 weeks. Dr. Dadvand will thoroughly explain to you what specific foods and activities to avoid before and after your surgery to give you a clearer understanding of what to expect.

FAQs – Gynecomastia


Depending on the cause, male gynecomastia can recede on its own. Many cases of adolescent gynecomastia resolve on their own. Additionally, if the breasts are enlarged due to medication or a similar factor, halting the treatment may improve the symptoms of gynecomastia. If you want to identify the cause of the problem, consult with a double board-certified specialized physician in your area.

What causes gynecomastia?

The development of gynecomastia may be caused by a number of different factors. These include hormonal imbalances, certain types of medication, or significant weight gain, just to name a few. All of these can produce gynecomastia or pseudo gynecomastia, making the patient a potential fit for a breast reduction procedure.

How do you know if you have gynecomastia?

Some patients may already suspect they have gynecomastia, but a medical professional can help identify the problem properly. In order to determine whether you have gynecomastia or leftover fat deposits in the chest area, you should consult with a local double board-certified plastic surgeon who can diagnose the issue and provide the best treatment.

Does gynecomastia surgery hurt?

Gynecomastia surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, so patients don’t experience any discomfort during the procedure. The recovery is relatively fast and some patients may experience discomfort, although this is not always the case. Dr. Dadvand designs a customized aftercare plan for each patient to accelerate recovery and keep downtime to a minimum.

What does a gynecomastia lump feel like?

In the vast majority of cases, gynecomastia feels like a rubbery lump or bump situated behind the nipple. It can vary in size and make the chest area seem feminine, which is the reason many men seek help from a gynecomastia specialist.
