Verified Patient Reviews
I had an amazing experience with everyone I met at XSculpt! Anabel took great care of us during our consultation and made me feel very comfortable. The facility in Evanston was very nice, modern, and clean. Dr Marc Adajar was excellent throughout the entire process. From the day of my consultation to after my surgery. He made me feel at ease and even gave me his personal cell # to send pictures during recovery and stay in contact with if I had any questions. I felt like a friend and not a patient. Surgery can be a scary thing, especially when your trying a place you haven’t been to before and XSculpt exceeded all my expectations. I would highly recommend this facility and Dr. Adajar!
I’m glad i went here! I got an appointment really fast and surgery. I came all the way from California was a little worried but that all went away once meeting Dr. Adajar. I highly recommend Xsculpt and it’s staff, you wont regret it. Oh by the way thanks Dr. Adajar for checking up with me to see how Im still doing!
I had a wondeful experience with Dr. Adajar, and the facility was clean and well maintained. The entire staff was knowledgeable and caring, they made me feel at ease throught the entire process. I appreciate Dr. Adajar’s follow up throughout my recovery process, he was accessible and answered my questions- even on the weekend! Overall great experinece. -Andres
What is Gynecomastia?
The definition of Gynecomastia is excessive breast tissue development in a male. “Gyneco” means “female-like” and “mastia” means breast. Men who have this condition complain of having feminine-looking breasts, or in popular-vernacular, “Man-boobs”. Gynecomastia is a very common condition, affecting up to 65% of men! If you think you have “Man-boobs”, you are certainly not alone. Luckily, there’s a simple solution – the ChestSculpt® procedure by XSculpt™.
What is ChestSculpt® Surgery For Gynecomastia?
ChestSculpt® for gynecomastia is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure designed to treat and eliminate gynecomastia, also referred to as “man boobs”, “moobs” or “male breasts”.
Unlike traditional gynecomastia male breast reduction surgery which uses only liposuction or excision, our surgeons are experts in body sculpting procedures and utilize a 3-pronged approached in order to achieve the best results.
- A tumescent infusion is used to anesthetize and “wet” the fat and glandular tissues, this approach helps minimize any bleeding.
- This is followed by power-assisted liposuction using a MicroAire Liposculptor™ to safely and efficiently remove fat and sculpt the area around the gland.
- Finally, the gland is carefully excised and REMOVED COMPLETELY through a key-hole incision at the border of the nipple.

Gynecomastia Is No Laughing Matter.
Millions of men suffer from enlarged breast glands or “man boobs” which can affect health, body image, and self-esteem.
Unfortunately, many men have been body-shamed for having male breasts. In fact, our Co-Founder Dr. Adajar suffered from this condition until he finally found a solution.
Few men realize that gynecomastia is not necessarily a fat problem, nor is it necessarily a “normal”. Even fewer men realize that it should be EVALUATED and TREATED by a physician.
Our surgeons are experts at eliminating gynecomastia as well as hormone evaluation and optimization for the best results.
CHESTSCULPT: CHICAGO GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY FAQ
What causes Gynecomastia?
There are many reasons males can develop gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts). Common causes can be attributed to:
- Certain medications or drugs
- Marijuana use – Read more on Marijuana use and Gynecomastia here
- Steroid use, supplements
- Hormone imbalance
- Genetic predisposition
While it is rare, male breast cancer can also cause gynecomastia. A qualified physician would be able to determine if this is the case prior to getting treated. Often times there is no clear medical cause.
How can I hide my "man boobs without surgery?"
If you have mild gynecomastia, you may find that wearing mild compression garments like Under Armour™ shirts or shape-wear underneath your clothes may help. For more severe cases, you may need to purchase specialized compression or post-surgical garments or vests to achieve maximal compression. Wear darker and thicker fabrics with patterns as opposed to thin or light colored shirts. Shirts like ribbed white tank-tops will definitely accentuate the appearance of gynecomastia and should be avoided at all costs!
Of course these tricks will be completely unnecessary if you decide to undergo ChestSculpt™ and have your gynecomastia treated for good!
Are there exercises I can do to get rid of my gynecomastia?
Depending on the cause of your gynecomastia, some exercises might help. If you have “pseudo-gynecomastia” composed of essentially fat, then diet, exercise, and weight loss can help reduce the appearance of man boobs. Some men find it helpful to do chest exercises to enlarge the pectoral muscles to hide the gynecomastia. If you have significant true gynecomastia with enlarged glands, then enlarging the pectoral muscles may actually accentuate the problem, making it appear worse. In these cases, it’s best to have the problem taken care of definitively with ChestSculpt and gland removal. Afterwards, you will be encouraged to resume chest exercises to enhance your result and work toward that chiseled masculine chest!
Are there any non-surgical procedures to get rid of gynecomastia?
*If surgery is out of the question, then you may consider some non-invasive options to treat the chest area such as SculpSure® which is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure using a specialized laser. SculpSure results are comparable to CoolSculpting® but with shorter treatment time, less discomfort, and no risk of paradoxical adipose hyperplasia. The laser destroys the fat cells, which are subsequently eliminated gradually by the body’s lymphatic system. The results are not as dramatic as surgical liposculpting or ChestSculpt but the benefit is that there is no down-time. You may have to do the treatment more than once. SculpSure is best for cases of pseudo-gynecomastia in which the problem is mainly excess fat. However, if you you have true gynecomastia with enlarged glands, no non-invasive device can destroy glandular tissue. The best option at that point is the ChestSculpt™ procedure. ChestSculpt™ is actually considered to be a “minimally-invasive” procedure since the incisions are tiny and the downtime is minimal as you can return to work in as little as 1-2 days.*
How do I get my man-boobs removed?
Treatment for gynecomastia depends on the cause! The first step is to see a physician who is experienced in the causes and treatment for gynecomastia. At XSculpt™, you would start by consulting with one of our experts who will perform a history and physical exam as well as some bloodwork to rule out any medical causes for gynecomastia. If your hormone levels are abnormal or need adjusting, we have the ability to do that! If your issue is pseudo-gynecomastia associated with obesity, the first recommendation would be to optimize your diet and exercise to decrease the amount of body fat.
Most cases of gynecomastia are considered “idiopathic” which means there is no definite distinct cause. Even men who are very physically fit can suffer from this problem. Once medical causes are ruled out and addressed, your physician will present to you your treatment options which may include hormone optimization, non-invasive therapy, or minimally invasive surgery.
If recommended, ChestSculpt™ is a minimally invasive laser surgery designed to treat idiopathic gynecomastia and pseudo-gynecomastia using tiny incisions with minimal downtime!
Will people know that I had male breast reduction surgery?
*When done correctly, your chest will look like you have been exercising and will appear natural. The special post-procedure garments worn temporarily after surgery can be hidden under your normal clothes.
*The technique used at XSculpt uses tiny incisions that are hidden and will be barely noticeable when healing is complete. You will be able to take your shirt off in public without having to worry about scars showing!
*Although cosmetic surgery in men has been steadily increasing, male breast reduction surgery can still make some men feel self-conscious. The surgeons of XSculpt will work closely with you to achieve your desired goals while keeping your visit to us strictly confidential.
How long is the gynecomastia surgery?
*Gynecomastia surgery takes about 45 minutes up to 2 hours to perform. This can vary depending how much fat and breast tissue has to be removed. The procedure is done as an outpatient, so you will be able to return home shortly after.
Does gynecomastia surgery hurt?
While every patient’s pain tolerance is different, the techniques used in the ChestSculpt procedure aim at reducing post-operative pain. We focus on avoiding contact with the rib cage, gentle and precise technique, and strict avoidance of bleeding.
What is the recovery from male breast reduction surgery like?
After your surgery, you will likely have some swelling, discomfort, and/or pain around your incision site. These symptoms should resolve after a couple of days.
A compression garment will have to be worn for 1 to 2 weeks following the procedure to prevent movement of the skin which may affect how the area heals as well as to keep a consistent pressure on the healing tissue.
We would recommend you take at least 1 week off of work for recovery. After the first week you can do light activities and return to work, but this can be different for each patient. The post-procedure period is critical for a good cosmetic result so adequate time off should be taken to ensure this.
Will I have scars from the procedure?
Almost all cosmetic procedures are associated with some scarring, including after gynecomastia surgery. Except in the cases where complete mastectomy and nipple graft are required, the majority of male breast reductions use very small incisions at the border of the nipple and near the armpit which usually fade to being almost unnoticeable with time.
*After several weeks, the majority of people barely can see them.
Sometimes liposuction is all that is needed to treat gynecomastia. In these cases the incisions are practically invisible.
How long will it take to see my results?
*You will likely see results immediately after the procedure. Swelling and bruising is common in the beginning, but usually goes away after a couple of weeks.
*As the healing process continues, you will see a flatter, more defined chest. The healing process does take time and the final result will likely be most appreciated 2 to 3 months after surgery.
*Combined with a program of a healthy diet with exercise, many patients may continue to see positive results 6 to 12 months after surgery!
How long will my results last?
*You can expect for your results following the procedure to last for many years. If you maintain a healthy weight and exercise program, the results shouldn’t change.
95% of the breast tissue is removed and only a tiny portion is left to support the nipple to prevent it from denting. With age or weight gain, some body changes that naturally occur such as loose skin or loss of lean muscle mass can occur. However, your chest should always look better than before the procedure.
