Many teenage males and adult men are embarrassed about their full chests that have the appearance of women’s breasts. This can be the focus of teasing from others, and can have a devastating effect on an individual’s self-esteem.
Fortunately, a gynecomastia reduction can often be addressed with a male chest liposuction in Richmond. Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin are liposuction specialists who can help patients stop hiding their body and feel confident to show it off.
What Causes Male Breasts?
So why exactly does this issue happen in the first place? What causes a male’s chest to resemble a female breast shape?
The cause will depend on whether the patient’s condition is due to excessive fat or whether it’s due to glandular tissue.
Here are some of the known causes of male breast development:
- Hormonal disorders
- Anabolic steroid use
- Chronic liver or kidney disease
- Klinefelter’s syndrome
- Weight fluctuations
Your Chest Liposuction Consultation
During your chest liposuction consultation, Dr. Sundin will determine whether your condition is being caused by excessive chest fat or a glandular tissue. If your issue is glandular-based, there is often an underlying hormonal cause such as a hormone imbalance. This will mean that you cannot receive liposuction for your chest, because glandular tissue is too fibrous for liposuction. If your issue is chest fat, however, there is not a medical problem, and this cosmetic issue can be treated with chest liposuction.
Dr. Sundin will carefully assess your body as well as your tissue characteristics. Any questions or concerns you may have can also be brought up during your Richmond chest liposuction consultation.

The Male Chest Liposuction Procedure
Before Dr. Sundin begins your chest liposuction procedure, you will be photographed and diagrams will be made on the areas to be treated.
Small incisions will be made for a long, hollow tube called a cannula to be inserted. This cannula will move back and forth underneath your skin, working to break up the fatty tissue and suction it out of your body.
