What is gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia, or enlargement of the male chest tissue, is a medical condition that affects thousands of men each year, and while it can be embarrassing and frustrating, it’s actually more common than you might think.
Gynecomastia may be caused by several different factors, such as hormonal imbalance, genetic predisposition, poor diet or even excessive marijuana. Living with gynecomastia can be socially inhibiting, especially in situations where a man is expected to go shirtless, such as at the beach, by the pool, in the bedroom or in the locker room.
Fortunately, Dr. Sayah has an excellent solution known as his Los Angeles male breast reduction.
Dr. Sayah serving Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and West Hollywood is a highly experienced veteran of this procedure, and has helped hundreds of men to regain their self-confidence and quality of life. He can deliver slimming, streamlined results that create a more traditionally masculine aesthetic in the chest.
Dr. Sayah is very sensitive to his clients’ need for discretion, and has worked with numerous celebrities, athletes and entrepreneurs of note to get them back on track physically and into the best shape of their lives.
How is gynecomastia treated?
Dr. Sayah will customize his technique to your goals and wishes. He may use some combination of liposuction to remove excess fat while sculpting your chest. Some men have dense or fibrous breast tissue which may have to be excised through minimal incisions along with liposuction.
In those patients with large loose hanging breasts, surgical excision of the breast tissue and excess skin may be necessary to reshape the chest contour. If necessary, your areola and nipple can of course be made smaller at the time of surgery. Dr Sayah will also help to diagnose the causes of the gynecomastia and treat any underlying hormonal imbalances so that it does not come back.

Dr. Sayah is an incredible surgeon and I'm so thankful that I found him. Every aspect of my experience with him from my first consultation through my one-month post op visit has been excellent.

Am I a good candidate for male breast reduction?
Dr. Sayah has found that the ideal Los Angeles gynecomastia patient often suffers from the following:
- Excess chest tissue (commonly called “man boobs”)
- Embarrassment over the woman-like appearance of the chest
- Physical discomfort caused by an enlarged chest
- No relief through dieting and exercise
- Condition has been going on for at least 12 months
Clients should be:
- In good mental and physical health
- At a healthy weight for their height

- Realistic in their expectations
What will my recovery entail?
Your recovery will depend on the techniques used by Dr. Sayah, and on your own personal healing abilities. After surgery, Dr. Sayah will fit you with a compression garment to help reduce swelling and maintain your new shape. You will need a few days of downtime where you abstain from physical exertion. Patients usually return to work within 3-5 days. Your regular gym routine can be resumed in about 3-5 weeks.

Male breast reduction in Los Angeles is generally between $3,000 and $6,000. Fees will vary from patient to patient based on the extent of the work required to achieve your goals, and on other factors such as the type of anesthesia received.
