Gynecomastia is an enlargement of the breast tissue often seen in male patients.
Gynecomastia is an enlargement of the breast tissue often seen in male patients. It is not harmful to health but esthetically disturbing. This increase in breast volume may result from an imbalance of testosterone and estrogen hormones.
Side effects of some medications, especially in overweight people, hormonal changes with age can also cause gynecomastia. Patients with gynecomastia may experience breast enlargement, tenderness and pain.
Before gynecomastia surgery, the patient has a preliminary consultation with Dr. Ahmet Dilber. Then, various hormonal tests and general checks are performed before the surgery. Our patient who is found suitable for gynecomastia surgery based on the tests and health checks can be admitted as an inpatient. During gynecomastia surgery, which takes about 1-1.5 hours, small incisions are made in the patient's chest area, and the breast fat is removed through these incisions. In some cases, mammary gland tissue may be removed along with breast fat.
At the end of the gynecomastia surgery, a pleasant procedure completed in a very short time, our male patients are satisfied with the esthetic appearance of the chest area. After the surgery, the patient stays in the hospital for one night and can return home or to the hotel the next day after the necessary checks.
