Gynecomastia is the growth of the male breast abnormally and turning into a breast similar to a woman’s breast. Gynecomastia is often seen when the level of estrogen (female hormone) in the body increases and the level of testosterone (male hormone) decreases. This situation occurs physiologically in infants, adolescents, and the elderly. Most of the gynecomastia in adolescence disappears within a few years. Apart from this, gynecomastia can be seen in men due to various hormone disorders, cancers, systemic diseases such as AIDS, cirrhosis; various cancer drugs, hormone drugs, cardiacs, and drugs. The underlying cause should be investigated in treatment. If there is no improvement despite causative treatments, surgical procedure is applied. In most of these patients, it is possible to get sufficient results with only liposuction. If the patient has excess breast tissue, Vaser Liposuction (ultrasonic) may also be required. If this is still not enough, excess breast tissue is removed with an incision made around the nipple.
Gynecomastia surgery takes 1-2 hours on average. The person can return home on the same day. Unless he does heavy work, he can continue his daily life. By wearing a corset, the patient heals completely in 4 to 6 weeks and continues his life normally. A permanent solution is provided with the surgery.
