Gynecomastia Las Vegas

Gynecomastia is a medical term for male breast enlargement. Even though it’s rarely talked about, this condition affects up to 50% of men in the U.S. It occurs when a man has too much breast tissue or fat or both. 

There are a number of reasons men experience gynecomastia. Some of the most common include genetics, excessive weight gain, medications, and steroids. If you’re living with this condition, there is a solution.

Gynecomastia surgery involves removing fat and tissue from your breasts so that you’re left with a masculine, attractive look. Keep reading to learn more about gynecomastia surgery and how it works.


*Individual Results May Vary


During gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Stile will pair surgical breast tissue excision with liposuction. He’ll make an incision around the areola (the tiny ring of pigmented skin around your nipples). Next, Dr. Stile will remove dense breast tissue and excess fat, leaving you with a smooth contour. While you may notice results immediately, they’ll continue to gradually improve over the next three months. In about 6 to 12 months, your skin will tighten and you’ll develop a new chest shape. 

After the procedure, your chest will be bandaged and Dr. Stile will ask you to always wear a compression garment. He’ll request that you request and keep your upper body movement to a minimum for at least 3 days. Depending on the nature of your job, you can resume work in 7 to 10 days. You can also return to a low-impact workout routine in 2 to 3 weeks.

Your results will be long lasting, as long as you lead a healthy lifestyle and maintain a stable weight. However, it is important to note that gynecomastia surgery can not reverse loose skin and other natural signs of aging.


If you have gynecomastia and are at or near your goal weight, you may be a good candidate for gynecomastia surgery. You should also have good skin elasticity as well excessive breast tissue that does not fade away with diet and exercise. If you show interest in male reduction surgery, Dr. Stile will conduct a thorough exam to make sure you have gynecomastia instead of another medical condition.
