Male Breast Hypertrophy (Gynecomasty)
Breast enlargement in the male may appear in a wide range of forms, from a slightly more pronounced nipple to a female breast-like formation. Treatment of all of these spectrum is surgical because, contrary to what you might think, gynecomastia does not improve in exercises such as sports and fitness. The surgery can be performed by general or local anesthesia.
This surgery takes about 1-2 hours on average according to the size of the breast. Liposuction or open surgery can be performed depending on the size and content of the breast, and sometimes these two conditions can be combined.
Post-operative process is not painful. Special corsets are used after the operation. The return to work is 3 days. This time is longer in heavy physical work.
Unlike women, men are very unhappy when they have breast hypertrophy. In fact, this situation can be corrected with an operation that is not too difficult and the patients are very satisfied with the results of the surgery. The biggest regret that patients experience after these surgeries is why they have not had this surgery earlier.
If there is a need in men as well as in women, the nipple and its circumference may be reduced. This can be done on its own or during gynecomastia surgery. After this process the remaining scar quality is usually very good and almost imperceptable.
