Male chest (breast) reduction

Permanently flattening male breasts with non-invasive cryolipolysis fat reduction treatment

There are multiple surgical and non-surgical treatment options for men looking for a chest reduction.

Gynecomastia surgery and chest liposuction will have the most extreme results, but there are alternatives that will help reduce the size of the male breast area more subtly without the risk, costs and downtime.

The non-invasive alternative to surgery for men with an enlarged chest

At our body sculpting clinic we offer fat freezing and ultrasound cavitation for the male chest, a non-surgical and non-invasive chest reduction treatment for men. 


Fat freezing, otherwise known as cryolipolysis, is the most effective non-surgical fat reduction treatment offering permanent results.

Permanent fat loss

Fast and easy treatment

Fat reduction after a single treatment

Non-surgical male chest treatment is non-invasive and requires no downtime or anaesthesia. Breast reduction appointments take approximately 60 to 90 minutes and you can continue day-to-day activity immediately after treatment.

Gynecomastia: Glandular tissue or fat

It is important to note that all fat reduction treatments, including liposuction, fat freezing and ultrasound cavitation only reduce fat in the target area, if the enlargement of the area is caused by enlarged glandular tissue in the breast fat reduction treatments will not be effective. 

The only way in which glandular tissue can be removed is through mastectomy surgery. Mastectomy for gynecomastia is a highly invasive surgical procedure that is performed to remove glandular breast tissue from males with enlarged glandular tissue..

Are treatments available for women?

No, breast tissues are not available for women. 


Non-invasive breast fat reduction treatments are only safe and available to men. The female breasts cannot be treated with fat freezing or other non-invasive fat reduction treatments.

How fat freezing helps to reduce fat on a man's chest

How fat freezing works on the male chest

With our top-of-the-line Sculpt Pro cryolipolysis fat freezing equipment we reduce the temperature of the localised fat cells in the male breast area for a short period of 45 minutes. 


The temporary freezing of the fat cells in the breast area triggers a process called 'apoptosis'.. Simply said, the fat cells in the area are triggered to self-destruct, and the body's natural processes clear the cellular debris from the old fat cells over a period of 6 to 12 weeks following the chest reduction treatment. Fat freezing doesn't just reduce fat, it permanently reduces the amount of fat cells in the area. 

As fat cells (adipocytes) are more susceptible to cold than other cells, only they are affected by the temperature change and other tissue in the male breast area remains undamaged. The skin and nipples are protected by an anti-freeze membrane and remain undamaged.

There is no downtime following this male breast reduction treatment and you can continue with your normal day-to-day activity immediately following fat freezing, including going to the gym. However, you will likely experience temporary visible side effects redness and bruising on the chest and around the nipples.. 

Results from cryolipolysis 

Male breast reduction for a flatter chest

You can expect to see the majority of your breast reduction results within 6 weeks following fat freezing treatment. However, some men will start noticing initial results much sooner. The full results of male chest fat freezing treatment are visible 3 months following your appointment.

You may wish to have 1, 2 or 3 breast reduction treatments 6 weeks apart from each other. The exact amount of reduction treatments will depend on your starting point and your desired outcome. Most men will have noticeable results from a single treatment.

With fat freezing the fat tissue on the chest is reduced. Glandular breast tissue will remain the same size. Glandular tissue can be removed with gynecomastia surgery only.

Discomfort and side effects from chest treatment

This non-invasive fat freezing male chest treatment can be a little uncomfortable at first. Discomfort can happen when the chest fat is suctioned into a specialist fat freezing applicator which causes a pinching feeling. Any feeling of local discomfort doesn't last long and most men feel quite comfortable within minutes of starting this treatment. As this is a non-surgical chest reduction treatment you do not require anaesthesia or localised numbing.

Most men will have red marks on their chest following the appointment which will be most profound the day of the chest reduction treatment. You also may experience some bruising, numbness and tingling in the chest area the days following treatment. Most marks and bruising subside quickly and further side effects from fat freezing are rare.

Suitability for male chest reduction treatment 

Chest fat freezing is available to all men that are in general good health over the age of 18. This fat reduction treatment cannot be carried out on female breast tissue.

To ensure the male breast treatment is suitable for you we will go through a thorough consultation on the day of your treatment at the start of your appointment.. If you have any health conditions then do please check our suitability page for a full list of contra-indications before booking your chest reduction appointment. You can also book in a phone or in-person consultation at the clinic.

Fat freezing for men

Fat freezing is for men as well as women. At Fat Freezing Manchester our client base is approximately 30% male. Our clinic is a safe, relaxing and welcoming environment to all.

Popular treatments for men include the chest as explained on this page, the stomach as shown on the video and the flanks. 

Other non-invasive treatments specifically suitable for men

HI-EMT for muscle stimulation

We also offer HI-EMT muscle stimulation treatment for the stomach, arms, legs and calves. This treatment helps to increase muscle mass as well as reduce stubborn fat.

HI-EMT treatment is specifically beneficial to those who are very close to their target weight and who are looking to further define muscles and reduce smaller areas of fat. 


Please do note that HI-EMT treatment is not available for the male chest area, and can not aid in male chest reduction.


Read more about HI-EMT muscle stimulation treatment here.

Ultrasound cavitation for men

We offer our specialist ultrasound cavitation with radiofrequency and vacuum therapy combination treatment for the tightening and sculpting of specific body areas, including the male chest.

This combination treatment is most effective as a course of 6 treatments, with treatments being 1 week apart from each other. An ultrasound cavitation treatment course on the male chest can be effective in reducing fat and tightening the area. However, as ultrasound cavitation treatment reduces the size of fat cells, but not the amount of fat cells, results will differ to fat freezing male chest reduction treatment and can be less significant. 

The ultrasound combination treatment is most effective and recommended for areas where the fat and skin is looser and where the goal is overall tightening and rejuvenation. Fat freezing is recommended where you want to achieve permanent fat loss.

Gynecomastia surgery or non-invasive male breast reduction?

Which type of chest reduction treatment is best for you will depend on a number of factors.

Surgical options for male chest reduction including gynecomastia surgery and liposuction are most suitable for reducing male breasts where there is a very significant fatty area or where glandular tissue needs to be removed.


When considering breast reduction surgery you should thoroughly research the reputation of your surgeon as well as the quality of care and aftercare provided by the facility. When considering surgical chest reduction you should also keep in mind the:

  • Downtime directly following treatment, full healing period and time off work required

  • Risks, including risk of infection, and likelihood of complications 

  • Waiting periods

  • Total of all costs

Reducing localised fat

Chest fat freezing will be the most suitable treatment option for the more subtle reduction of localised chest fat deposits without the surgery price, downtime or risks. ​Fat freezing can effectively flatten a man's breasts permanently with just a small number of treatments at a much lower price point to surgery. However, as a non-invasive treatment it has its limitations, and as with all male breast fat reduction treatments, future weight and fat gain that leads to larger breasts can only be prevented by following a healthy lifestyle. 

If you have been thinking about gynecomastia surgery or liposuction but consider surgery too extreme an option then fat freezing cryolipolysis chest treatment might be the suitable alternative for you..
