Gynecomastia Surgery


Gynecomastia means that the male breast is larger than normal. It usually occurs without an obvious cause. It can cause serious social problems in some young men.

What is the cause of Gynecomastia?

Physiological causes of gynecomastia are 90%. Gynecomastia, which occurs especially during adolescence and lasts for about 2-3 years, is physiological. Does not require treatment. In other words, it can be said that it does not refer to a medical disease. However, some drugs and rare diseases can cause gynecomastia.

Postoperative Period
Food and beverages can be consumed 4 hours after the operation and the patient can walk. It is necessary to wear a corset for about 4 weeks after the operation. There is little bruising and swelling. This corset is usually in the form of a belt and can be relaxed from time to time.
At the end of the first month, exercises that especially work the upper chest muscles are recommended.
All swellings resolve and the final result occurs in an average of 6 months.
Gynecomastia surgery is a procedure that takes about an hour under general anesthesia. I usually perform gynecomastia correction with methods that do not involve incisions (liposuction, VASER liposuction, laser lipolysis or plasmatic energy dependent instruments). In rare cases, we remove excess tissue by surgical incision in patients with very large breasts.
The surgery is usually painless. Patients who have surgery in the morning can be discharged in the evening. Our patients who have surgery in the morning are hospitalized for one day. He is discharged the next day.
