What is Gynecomastia?

Although there is no structural difference between male breasts and female breasts, the reason why male breasts are smaller is the lack of female hormones in men. However, in some cases, the breasts in men also start to grow and reach a size almost like a woman's breast. The breast, which has been a symbol of femininity and fertility throughout history, naturally causes various social and psychological problems when it reaches large sizes in men. The solution to the problem of breast enlargement in men is gynecomastia. With the surgery, men can get rid of their large and saggy breasts and continue their lives.

Gynecomastia means breast enlargement in men and a feminine appearance of the breast. It is a problem that can be seen in about half of the male population. A strong, tight, and taut rib cage is essential for a masculine appearance. Sagging and oily breasts cause problems, especially in summer. Men living with this problem wear the clothes they want and go to the sea.

Gynecomastia Methods

Male pattern breast enlargement usually disappears on its own over time. Therefore, no treatment is required. However, when it occurs due to a disease, the underlying disease should be treated. In adolescents, there is usually no cause other than the hormonal changes that occur during puberty. In such cases, gynecomastia is followed up by the doctor every three or six months. It often disappears in less than two years. However, in case of physical discomfort such as breast pain, hypersensitivity, or emotional problems such as feeling of embarrassment, surgery is considered. These surgeries are liposuction or mastectomy. With liposuction, excess fat tissue in the breast is taken out of the body. In this procedure, the breast tissue is not touched. In mastectomy operation, breast tissue is taken.

Breast enlargement in men can be soft (lipomatous) or hard (glandular). Breast size may differ. With laser lipolysis, it may be possible to remove the fat tissue, break up the fibrous (breast tissue) tissue and recover the sagging breast skin. Laser lipolysis is the destruction of fat cells by heating with laser beams. With this process, it also breaks down the connective tissue and collagen that has lost its elasticity and increases the formation of young connective tissue and collagen. Laser lipolysis, which is a very innovative treatment in body shaping applications, is effectively used in the treatment of regional fat and skin laxity. In the application that can be performed even in the clinic, the incision is between 1-2 mm, so there is almost no scar after the surgery. After laser lipolysis, the patient can return to work or social life immediately. One of the advantages of laser lipolysis is that it provides healing in a short time and the bandaging time is short. Gynecomastia treatment with laser lipolysis gives very fast and satisfactory results, especially in patients whose breast size is not too large, rich in adipose tissue, and skin sagging does not require surgery.

If for any reason, hormone-containing drugs such as birth control pills are used, it is beneficial to stop them one month before the operation date, with the knowledge of the doctor, one month before the operation, in order to reduce the risk of clot formation in the legs. If these points are not taken into consideration, the risk of encountering unexpected bleeding complications during or after surgery increases. A detailed list of foods, drugs, vitamins, and herbal products that have blood thinning effects is given to the patient. Alcohol and cigarettes should not be consumed before gynecomastia surgery. It will be beneficial in all respects to reduce the body mass index to normal limits before the operation. Especially obese patients are recommended to lose weight first. On the other hand, days before the surgery, a serious diet should not be done anymore, a balanced diet should be done, and it is important very well rested. The operation should be performed at a time when the physical and mental health is at its best. After stressful and tiring periods such as exams or long travel, at least one week should be rested and then surgery should be considered.

After Gynecomastia Operation

The period after gynecomastia surgery varies according to the technique used. If the enlarged breast tissue in a man has been removed using the surgical excision technique, a drain is placed and withdrawn depending on the amount of fluid that comes after the surgery. Again, in this case, there are usually stitches in the colored part of the breast, called the areola, and they are also dressed. Today, liposuction, especially ultrasonic VASER liposuction, is preferred in most of the gynecomastia surgeries. In this surgical technique, a small incision is made and a serum containing drugs that stop bleeding and reduce pain is injected into the breast tissue. Since the surgical incisions are very small and the serum containing painkillers is given, the post-operative pain is felt much less. Since there is a drug in the same serum that will reduce bleeding and especially VASER protects blood vessels, a drain is usually not placed. If the gynecomastia treatment is done with Liposuction, the patient can be discharged after the surgery without going to bed in appropriate conditions. The pressure corset is worn continuously for 3-4 weeks, and if possible, at night in 2 months.
