Male Mammoplasty-Gynecomastia

male breast reduction

Gynecomastia refers to the abnormal growth of the breasts in men. It is generally thought to be caused by an imbalance of sex hormones. Breast tissue size resulting from imbalances of estrogen and testosterone can often occur bilaterally and rarely unilaterally.

The frequency of gynecomastia increases with age. As soon as these patients have the necessary examinations, surgical treatment is recommended if necessary. They indicate that they are uncomfortable due to the growth and swelling of the breast; sometimes it can be accompanied by growth, soreness and pain.

Many patients, with the exception of physical data, complain about the inability to enter the sea, the pool or clothes that fit in a narrow body, while gynecomastia can cause a person to feel visual anxiety and embarrassment and negatively affect the human psychology.

The presence of a condition that causes gynecomastia is first investigated in the person presenting with gynecomastia. Blood and hormone tests are done. If necessary, further investigations are carried out, such as ultrasound, MRI or CT.

Surgical treatment is recommended if there is no underlying cause as a result of the examinations carried out.

During surgical treatment, excess adipose tissue in the growing breast tissue is removed by liposuction. Liposuction does not cut the skin. Small holes are opened at the insertion sites of the liposuction cannulas, and at the end of the operation, each hole is closed with one suture. Men have a small mammary gland, which is located under the nipple. In patients with breast growth, liposuction may not provide the desired reduction effect.

In this case, the breast is removed using a small incision made at the junction of the neck with the dark part of the breast. Breast skin sags too much, breast augmentation in large size liposuction patients cannot remove excess skin, more skin may need to be taken. One of the revolutionary methods in the treatment of gynecomastia in recent years is the method of laser liposuction. In this method, unlike conventional liposuction, laser energy is transmitted to the subcutaneous tissue.

In this way, the fat that accumulates in the breast is more easily broken down and then removed according to the classic liposuction technique.
