Gynecomastia refers to the appearance of a female-type breast in males, which may develop physiologically or may occur due to a hormonal disorder or the effects of the drugs used. This has become a common disease in recent years, and leads to serious psychological disorders in the patient since it triggers feelings of fear and embarrassment. However, gynecomastia is a very smooth operation and as Apex Clinic, we can enable the result of the operation to be reached quickly thanks to specialist surgeons at our hospital.
Considering the regression of gynecomastia during adolescence, gynecomastia surgery can be performed in rare cases in men under 18 years of age.
Liposuction is performed in the majority of patients; however, vaser liposuction is used in patients with larger breasts. There is no scarring with these techniques and the duration of surgery is about one hour.
If patients gain a lot of weight after gynecomastia surgery, some growth may occur in the breasts. Gynecomastia surgery is the ultimate solution for patients.
The painkillers given to the patient after surgery at our hospital will be sufficient and the patient will feel less pain.
The patient can stand up and eat 4 hours after surgery, and even be discharged on the same day. The patient shower and return to their normal routine in 1 to 2 days. Postoperative swelling in the chest will pass within 3 weeks, and during this period, the patient should wear a compression garment surrounding the chest. However, the breasts will reach their final shape 3 months after surgery.
