Gynecomastia is a condition in which there is an overdevelopment of the breast tissue in males, resulting in the appearance of enlarged or “feminine-looking” breasts. The condition is caused by an imbalance of hormones, specifically an increase in the level of estrogen (the female hormone) compared to testosterone (the male hormone).

The condition can occur in one or both breasts and can affect males of any age, although it is most commonly seen in adolescent boys and older men. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including hormonal changes, certain medical conditions, and the use of certain medications or drugs.

What can Gynecomastia do?

  • Gynecomastia can cause a number of physical and emotional symptoms in affected individuals, including:
  • Enlarged or “feminine-looking” breasts
  • Tenderness or pain in the breast tissue
  • Embarrassment or self-consciousness about the appearance of the breasts
  • Avoiding activities or clothing that might draw attention to the chest area
  • Difficulty finding clothes that fit comfortably
  • A feeling of discomfort or pain in the chest area
  • Emotional distress, such as anxiety or depression.

How is Gynecomastia surgery performed?

Gynecomastia surgery is usually performed under general aesthesia and involves making an incision in the breast to remove excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin. The surgeon may also perform liposuction depending on the extent of the condition. Recovery time can vary from person to person, but most patients are able to resume normal activities within a week.

What is the recovery like after a Gynecomastia surgery?

Generally, recovery after a Gynecomastia surgery is fairly quick. Typically, patients experience some swelling and bruising, which should subside within a week or two. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities within a week, though strenuous activities may need to be avoided for two to three weeks. It’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.

How is the aftercare of a Gynecomastia surgery?

It is recommended to wear a compression garment or bra for at least a month after gynecomastia surgery in order to help reduce swelling and allow the tissue to heal properly. Also, it is common for a doctor to prescribe antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications, and pain medications to reduce swelling, bruising, and discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

On average, most gynecomastia surgeries take about two to three hours. It is recommended that you stay in Turkey for at least for 4 days following the procedure to allow for proper recovery.

Generally, patients can return to work one week after gynecomastia surgery.

In some cases, yes, gynecomastia can return after surgical removal. The most common cause of recurrent gynecomastia is hormone imbalances, or medications that are taken to treat other conditions.

Before a breast lift surgery, the treating doctor (plastic surgeon) will conduct a thorough examination of the breast tissue to determine the individual extent of the change and plan the surgical approach. During this examination, the doctor will determine if the enlarged breasts are due to excess breast tissue or if it is due to excess fat tissue. If the breast enlargement is due to excess breast tissue, the procedure of breast lift can be performed to remove the excess tissue and reshape the breasts. However, if the enlargement is due to excess fat tissue, a liposuction procedure may be recommended to remove the excess fat and achieve a desired shape.
