Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia Surgery in Turkey

Gynecomastia Surgeryis the removal of the more than normal breast and adipose tissue in men and restoring male breasts to their aesthetic dimensions.

Gynecomastia surgery is a highly effective, comfortable, and successful operation thanks to advanced surgical techniques today.

The breast of men does not have a function as in women. Since the big breast in men disrupts the masculine appearance and creates an aesthetic problem, it is a condition that should be corrected with Gynecomastia Surgery.

What Is Gynecomastia Surgery?

"Liposuction" techniques used in Gynecomastia Surgery have started a new period in this field. Fat removal methods such as laser liposuction and "Vaser Liposuction" have made gynecomastia surgery easier and more comfortable. Fat content can be removed successfully by Vaser Lipo without damaging the tissue in gynecomastia surgery.

Gynecomastia is a more common condition than what is thought. Gynecomastia is the third operation among the most frequently performed aesthetic surgeries in men.

The technique to be applied in gynecomastia surgery varies depending on the fat or gland (breast tissue) density in the male breast. Similarly,the sagging degree of the breast is another factor affecting the gynecomastia surgery method.

Gynecomastia Surgery Cost 2021 can be explained according to the procedure to be applied which will be decided after an examination. Gynecomastia Surgery Ankara costs vary depending on the hospital where the operation will be held, and the hospitalization period. Please contact us for detailed information about the gynecomastia surgery cost.

How Is Gynecomastia Surgery Performed?

It can be explained after the examination which method is the best in gynecomastia surgery. For example, if the fat tissue is dense, the operation can be performed quickly, easily, and painlessly by removing the fat tissue with liposuction. If the patient has both breast tissue (gland) and adipose tissue, it is necessary to remove the breast tissue (gland excision) in addition to liposuction. Both procedures are applied together to make the breasts reshaped and flattened.

Gynecomastia Surgery with Vaser Liposuction is among the most preferred methods today. Fats are fragmented and liquefied with ultrasonic sound waves. Using very fine cannulas, these liquid fats are removed from the breast tissue. Vaser liposuction performed with ultrasound sound waves is the method that I prefer in gynecomastia surgeries. Popularly known as VaserLipo, the biggest advantage of this method is that only the fat is broken down with high-frequency sound waves, but it does not damage the vascular, nervous and connective tissue. In this way, patients return to their daily lives the next day.

If the patient has dense and hard breast tissue as well as excess adipose tissue, a small incision (peri-areolar incision) is made on the margin of the brown part of the breast (from the edge of the areola). The hard and dense breast tissue under the nipple is removed. In order to hide the scars as much as possible, the incisions are carefully made on the margin of the brown part of the breast.

Patients feel ready to return to their desk jobs 2-3 days after Gynecomastia Surgery and are allowed to start doing mild exercises after the first few weeks.

Gynecomastia Surgery with Vaser Liposuction

Gynecomastia Surgery with Vaser Liposuction is a tissue-respectful technique and it does not damage the surrounding vessels, nerves and soft tissues. In this way, bleeding becomes less during gynecomastia surgery and bruising is seen much less after the operation. In this way, patients can quickly return to their work with less pain, bruising and less edema after gynecomastia surgery.

Since the whole operation is completed with very small incisions, the problem of scarring is minimal thanks to the closed gynecomastia surgery technique. If the patient wants to get rid of abdominal, waist, and back fat during gynecomastia surgery, body Vaser liposuction can also be easily performed in the same session.

The postoperative period of the gynecomastia surgery is extremely comfortable and painless. It does not require hospitalization.

Those who have gynecomastia surgery begin to walk upright. As you can see, recovery after Gynecomastia Surgery is extremely fast.

Gynecomastia Vest

Gynecomastia vest defines a type of corset used for two different purposes. Some men with gynecomastia complaints try to hide and camouflage the current situation by wearing gynecomastia vests undershirts or t-shirts. Of course, the gynecomastia vest used for this purpose is not a real solution other than just trying to hide the current situation.

Gynecomastia Corset

Gynecomastia corset used after gynecomastia surgery can sometimes be called a gynecomastia vest. Because gynecomastia corsets are the garments that are dressed by a front clasp just like a gynecomastia vest. A gynecomastia corset is recommended to be used for 3-4 weeks after gynecomastia surgery. Gynecomastia corset ensures less postoperative edema and recovery with a good shaping.

Gynecomastia Surgery with Liposuction

Nowadays, the most preferred gynecomastia operation providing a high satisfaction rate is gynecomastia surgery with liposuction. It’s because the whole operation can be performed with an incision of about 1-centimeter size thanks to the developments in liposuction technology. With Vaser liposuction and Laser liposuction technologies, it is possible to go back home the same day after the operation and return to normal life within a few days.

Gynecomastia surgery with Vaser liposuction can be performed through a small incision of one centimeter on both sides of the breasts under sedation or general anesthesia. It is a suitable treatment method especially for the fat-rich type of gynecomastia. After gynecomastia treatment with Vaser Liposuction, it is recommended to wear a comfortable corset for 1-2 weeks to reduce edema.

Doing Sports During Gynecomastia Treatment

We recommend our patients do sports starting from the 4th week after gynecomastia surgery. If the gynecomastia problem is caused by obesity, sports and diet will definitely be useful. Despite sports and diet, breast enlargement can continue in men.The fat accumulated in the breast area in men may be resistant to sports and diet. Many patients complain that their breasts appear larger when they exercise, especially with the increase of muscular volume after chest muscle exercises. Gynecomastia surgery performed at this stage can provide the patient with the expected results.

Is there a drug for gynecomastia?

Men with gynecomastia problem first look for gynecomastia medication or medical treatment of gynecomastia. In order to correct gynecomastia with medical treatment, it must have developed because of hormonal reasons or systemic disease (liver, thyroid, pituitary gland diseases). For all of these diseases, medical treatment may not be sufficient alone and surgical intervention may be required. The majority of the gynecomastia cases cannot be treated with medication, and gynecomastia surgery is required mostly.

Is there a natural treatment of breast enlargement in men?

Mixtures introduced as a natural treatment of breast enlargement in men, natural cures presented as gynecomastia cream or gynecomastia medication usually disrupt the delicate hormone balance and cause unnecessary expenses. If gynecomastia is caused by an endocrinological (hormonal) reason, its treatment is a very sensitive issue and should be performed by an endocrinologist. However, it is not possible for settled gynecomastia to be regressedby using a product sold under the name of a gynecomastia cream.

Is it possible to prevent breast enlargement in men?

It might be possible to prevent breast enlargement in men if the reason is:

  • A hormonal imbalance,
  • A tumor secreting hormones,
  • Organ pathologies causing liver, thyroid, and other systemic diseases.
