What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the growth of the female type of breast tissue in men.

Breast enlargement in men is not always a sign of disease. The most common cause of gynecomastia is obesity, drugs or hormonal changes.

Gynecomastia is mostly seen in adolescents or older men due to hormonal changes.

Gynecomastia, which appears as a problem in almost 40% of men, seriously affects the patients’ self-esteem.  Gynecomastia surgery also known as “Male Breast Reduction” is the most effective method to solve this problem.

Operation Age

Since gynecomastia complaints during adolescence may be due to hormonal changes, surgical intervention should be waited for at least 2 years. Gynecomastia which does not regress after 2 years is suitable for operation.

It is sufficient to wait 1 year after gynecomastia occurs in post-puberty age groups.

Pre-Operation Interview

First of all, we evaluate your complaints and your expectations after the operation. Then, we inform you about the individual results that may occur after the operation and together we discuss the operation date.

Preparation for Surgery

  • In consultation with your doctor, use of aspirin and derivative drugs should be disrupted one week before the surgery.
  • It is advised to avoid smoking cigarettes for a period before and after the operation.
  • Use of hair gel on the day of operation should be avoided
  • It is advised to wear comfortable clothing and leave your jewelry at home.
  • Eating and drinking is not allowed 6 hours before the surgery.
  • When you arrive in your reserved room, you may be given an oral medication for relaxation. 

Operation Technique

Two types of techniques may be used: either Liposuction technique or Laser Liposuction. Either way, the excess fat and/or glandular tissue are removed through the incised hole- sculpting a new chest contour without leaving any scars. As a result, nipple and chest deformities are gone.

Recovery Process

  • After the operation, a special corset for post-gynecomastia is worn.
  • Eating and drinking is allowed immediately after the surgery.
  • You may stand up and walk 4 hours after surgery.
  • You are usually discharged from the hospital on the same day of surgery in the evening.
  • A check to the doctor is again needed on the 2nd day after the surgery in order for the corset to be changed.
  • After the 3rd day you can take a bath. You may return to normal life and may start to work within 4 days after the surgery.
  • On the 10th day post-operation you may start light and not tiring exercises (such as walking) whereas more active exercises (swimming, running, and other sports) may start from the 2nd month post-operation.
  • It is normal to experience swelling after the surgery, but it mostly disappears after 3 weeks.
  • After the 3rd week, you will become more aware of the new shape the surgery gives to your body and you will enjoy it.
  • After this period, the shaping process continues until the 6th month.
