What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia, male breast enlargement, is a psychologically traumatizing medical condition that can interfere with the social interaction of the men who suffer from it. Male breast reduction surgery, offered by Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, is a medical treatment for gynecomastia, and it represents the fifth most common plastic surgery procedure performed on men in the United States. Men don’t want to hide their chests under clothing and limit their life activities due to gynecomastia. Many men who suffer from gynecomastia choose to restrict their exposure at beaches, swimming pools, the gym and even their own personal relationships.

Common Gynecomastia Causes

HORMONAL IMBALANCE

The most common cause of gynecomastia is an underlying hormonal issue. Throughout puberty, hormone levels surge to new levels, which leads to the growth of the body and maturation of the sex organs. Testosterone leads to male characteristics while estrogen induces female traits in the body. During this time an imbalance may occur. With either low testosterone or elevated estrogen levels, the development of female-like breast tissue or gynecomastia can occur. As men approach their sixties, testosterone levels decrease again, resulting in possible breast development.

OTHER CAUSES

Another cause of Gynecomastia is due to the use of certain drugs, especially anabolic steroids. Under rare conditions, male breast enlargement may arise from hormone-secreting tumors. Men with very high rates of female breast cancer in their families may be at increased risk for developing tumors. There is another condition, called pseudogynecomastia, which is not true gynecomastia. This condition arises in men who have had significant weight gain. Pseudogynecomastia is first treated with a weight loss regimen and may correct itself.

35 Male - Body Lift and Gynecomastia Surgery - Las Vegas, NV - I decided to visit Dr. Khorsandi after doing some research online. After the initial consultation, I felt comfortable and confident enough with Dr Khorsandi to proceed with scheduling surgery. My surgery was to be in two, or possibly three stages. I am a 35 year old male who lost a lot of weight (naturally) about 12 years ago and have remained extremely health conscious and active ever since. Dr. Khorsandi recommended a belt lipectomy procedure in response to my areas of concern. If you know anything about this procedure, you are aware that it is very a extensive and time consuming surgery. This procedure lasted roughly 7 hours and required a few months of healing before I could resume my normal gym activity. It is now 14 months later and I'm extremely happy with everything. Scars are minimal and I couldn't imagine better results. The care and attention of Dr. Khorsandi and his staff is amazing. I had no problem getting a hold of him whether he was at his office, home or traveling (which I needed to a few times during the first few months of healing). My second area of concern was my chest (which had not retracted fully from weight loss). Dr. Khorsandi performed two procedures, the final one being two weeks ago. Again, I couldn't imagine better results. He has reshaped it and reduced areas which have lost elasticity leaving me with a chest that I never thought I'd have. Note that I'm very particular and had higher than normal expectations to begin with. I was very nervous in the beginning stages only to be relieved and happy at the end. If he can do this well on such extensive and detailed procedures as he did with mine, I can easily see why he has such excellent reviews in all other areas. Chris 2/12/15

I'm not a big yelper, but I felt inclined to share my positive experience with VIP. It's worth mentioning that this is coming from somebody who never really fathomed ever having an elective surgery performed. I originally joined my wife for her initial consultation for her breast augmentation. My first observations were the cleanliness and pleasant layout of the facility. Upon sitting down and talking with Dr. Khorsandi, we both agreed we liked him - Professional yet very down-to-Earth and easy to talk to. The rest of the staff is very personable as well. There was no judgement or uncomfortable moments. We left feeling that she was in good hands. The original stigma I held in regard to plastic surgery evaporated and I scheduled my own consultation within a few days for my gynecomastia which has always bothered me. My experience was also smooth/easy. He pointed out that I would also be a good candidate for HD lipo (without attempting to shove it down my throat or just receive more business). I felt so good about everything that I had the operation done within a week. I opted to have it done sedated/under local anesthesia to save myself money, though the prices and financing are already completely feasible especially when compared to other surgeons I've researched. The surgery was painless. I was apparently even laughing that it was tickling me at one point. I'm still swollen and tender (as one should expect) but I didn't even bruise or have any discoloration. I'm excited to see the swelling dissipate + skin tighten, but I'm already happy with the change in my appearance. Scheduling and follow-up appointments are also a breeze. I will update with pictures once my recovery is closer to complete in order to show the attainability of transformation. I'm even more thrilled now to see my wife's new breasts. If you have something you dislike about yourself that you want altered, make a visit here as it can change the quality of your life and there's nowhere in Vegas that can better facilitate it. A sincere thank you to Dr. K and the ladies at VIP...

I had been dealing with gynecomastia for a few years now from years of using different supplements and had always thought about getting it removed...but after seeing horrible pictures online and huge scars i definitely felt like i was just going to have to DEAL with the way my chest looked for the rest of my life...until i found Dr. Khorsandi and his staff online...first of all he was my third doctor i had seen for my chest, and i was not impressed AT ALL with the previous two...right away he answered every question i had with confidence and i felt comfortable with him doing the procedure... Not only did he get me in LITERALLY the next day, but the procedure was quick, minimal pain and i have virtually ZERO SCARRING! I couldnt believe it...he exceeded my expectations and i recommend any other male to get this done with Dr. Khorsandi

Surgical Technique

Fortunately, the surgical treatment of gynecomastia is highly successful, giving excellent and long lasting aesthetic results. Treatment commonly consists of liposuction combined with surgical gland excision. Incisions are made around the edge of the areola and may be extended in some circumstances. Surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia and can take between 1 and 3 hours. Patients tend to return to work within 3 to 5 days and can return to exercise within 4 to 6 weeks. Compression garments are essential to reduce swelling, and are recommended for 6 weeks post operatively.

Expected Cost

Depending on the complexity of the surgery, patients can expect to pay around $6,500 for male breast reduction surgery. The cost varies based on whether the patient requires liposuction, skin tightening or nipple repositioning.
