Gynecomastia is the uncontrollable growth of breast tissue in men. Gynecomastia surgery is an aesthetic intervention that eliminates this problem. The accumulation of fat, which is specific to women and does not correspond to the male anatomy, causes problems in relationships and loss of self-confidence in social life in men. Our patients who visit clinics because of this problem complain that they are ashamed to swim in the sea and cannot wear the clothes they want.

For a man, enlarged breasts can be extremely stressful and embarrassing due to their structure. Many people suffer from psychological trauma during adolescence due to ridicule and hesitation to start a relationship. Gynecomastia is observed in every five men. And this problem can be overcome with a simple operation.

Why do breasts grow in men?

The problem of gynecomastia is one of the aesthetic problems of the last age. The cause of the extreme growth of breast tissue is an unhealthy diet, the uncontrolled use of additives by the food industry, and the resulting hormonal changes. It is also believed that a sedentary lifestyle is also a trigger for breast growth.

Other factors that lead to breast growth in men are medications that are necessarily used due to health problems. Other causes of gynecomastia include alcohol and drug use, hypogonadism, aging, tumors, hyperthyroidism, kidney and liver failure, and malnutrition, which can disrupt hormonal balance.

Gynecomastia is most common during adolescence or over 60, among those who use steroids or androgen-containing supplements for athletic performance and those with certain chronic illnesses.

Can breast growth in men be prevented?

If such growth has already occurred in the breast tissue, exercise, and diets will not help. The fat stored in this area is primarily stable and durable. However, to maintain this hormonal balance, paying attention to a healthy diet and exercise regime is necessary. In addition, you may consider gynecomastia surgery to eliminate this problem that affects men so emotionally and psychologically.

Gynecomastia surgeries without a scalpel are the most convenient procedures for enlarged breast tissue.

How gynecomastia surgery works

Before gynecomastia surgery, the doctor will perform a physical examination and examine your existing breast tissue. The size and structure of the tissue that develops in the breast are carefully examined. Any nipple movement or other findings are evaluated. The patient is checked for gynecomastia and pseudo-gynecomastia; if it exists, a distinction is made between its types.

Sometimes a test may be needed to assess the tissue. For example, the structure’s size and presence of existing fat nodules are checked. At the same time, the company of any chronic liver, thyroid gland, or kidney diseases is investigated.

Some male and female children have a breast mass similar to gynecomastia, but it is different. This type of breast growth due to puberty disappears spontaneously within 1 to 3 years. Breast cancer is a rare condition that can occur in men and is usually seen in one breast.

During the examination, it is also checked whether there is no infection in the breast, which is called mastitis. Anyone other than these candidates is suitable for gynecomastia surgery.

With the development of technology, instead of cutting out the fatty tissue that was previously deposited in the breast, we implement a much more comfortable application with micro holes.

What is gynecomastia surgery without using a scalpel?

This technique, which allows fat tissue in the breast to be dissolved and removed through open micro ducts, does not damage nerves and blood vessels. In this regard, no complications such as swelling and bruising are observed in classic gynecomastia operations, and the patient can immediately participate in social life.

Many men prefer this technique because the long recovery period is replaced by a short and highly comfortable one.
