Male Breast Aesthetics (Gynecomastia)

WHY DO BREASTS OF MEN GROW?

As a result of breast growth in men, they can face with social and aesthetic issues.

The current breast tissue grows and gets the appearance of female breast. This condition turns back to normal after the adolescence period in a few years.

Liver diseases, testicular tumors, AIDS, use of hormonal medications, different drugs, some medications cause health problems that result in breast growth in men. We also face with these problems as a result of not exercising regularly and appropriately in gyms and in body building.

For differential diagnosis of those conditions, hormone tests, radiological imaging (ultrasound, MRI) are necessary. After differential diagnosis is made for the treatment, corrective procedure can be performed with liposuction techniques and/or surgical techniques according to the size of breast tissue and the level of sagging and according to the type of excessive tissue (breast tissue and/or fat tissue). In the operations, in which incision is made, scar is left around the nipple in half moon shape and over time it becomes hardly visible.

For 4 weeks, no sport should be done except walking and no heavy things should be lifted; it should be especially avoided from fast and forcing arm movements. At the end of 6th week, sports activities can be done. The breasts get the final appearance within 3 months. Edema, pain and bruises can be seen on the first days.

 In gynecomasty surgeries, incision is mostly made around the nipple in half moon shape and in the midline of breast. Due to surgical area, Operative scar is hardly recognized.
