MALE BREAST REDUCTION
Regain your confidence with a simple operation
Occasionally breast tissue and fat deposits in men can enlarge, causing the appearance of male breasts. This can occur due to hormonal reasons, environmental factors, the side effects of certain drugs, or even, in some cases, for no apparent reason at all. Whatever the cause, the appearance of male breasts can negatively impact on self-esteem and self-confidence, especially if it occurs during adolescence.A male breast reduction, or gynecomastia, can remove the excess fat on the chest, restoring a naturally masculine appearance.

WHAT IS MALE BREAST REDUCTION?
Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction, is the surgical correction of overdeveloped or enlarged breasts in men.
This procedure removes excess fat and glandular tissue to restore a flatter, firmer and more masculine contour to the chest.
Male breast reduction can be performed safely and successfully on teenagers and adult men alike.

Male Breast Reduction with Dr. Tunç Tiryaki
During your initial consultation with Dr. Tiryaki, he will thoroughly discuss your desires and expectations for gynecomastia correction with you.
Dr. Tiryaki performs male breast reduction to reduce the size and shape of the enlarged breast tissue
after reviewing the best surgical options, and recommending the one that he thinks is best of your body type.
How is a gynecomastia procedure performed?
Gynecomastia surgery can be performed in two different ways, depending on the condition of the patient. If the enlarged breasts are caused by excess localised fat tissue, the problem can be solved with liposuction. However, if the problem is caused by oversized breast glands, the excess breast tissue must be surgically removed. Factors that will influence the ideal surgical method include the condition of the skin and the amount of subcutaneous fat.
Breast reduction is performed under general anaesthesia or sedation and is usually complete in under an hour.
Will a gynecomastia procedure leave any scars?
When male breast reduction is performed using liposuction, the fine cannulas used ensure that there are no visible scars. Should the breast tissue require surgical removal, there may be a small scar.
How long is the recovery time for a gynecomastia procedure?
The recovery period is approximately one week. A chest compression garment must be worn for three weeks following the surgery.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We generally recommend waiting until 18 years of age for a gynecomastia surgery. Sometimes breast tissue that forms due to hormonal fluctuations during puberty will regulate within a few years, and growth in the breasts can pass accordingly.
As with all surgical procedures, patients must abstain from taking blood thinners and limit both alcohol consumption and smoking as much as possible. Ideally, a patient should abstain entirely from smoking and drinking alcohol in the last couple of days preceding surgery.
Male breast reduction surgery takes about 30 to 60 minutes and is performed under sedation or general anaesthesia. You can usually go home on the same day.
When gynecomastia surgery is carried out using the liposuction method, the patient will need to wear a chest compression garment for two to three weeks. In the first few days after surgery, you may feel pain similar to the soreness caused by intense exercise. You may also experience bruising and swelling in the chest area. This will resolve within a few weeks. You should see a satisfactory result within about three weeks, but the final look will become evident in three to six months. As with all surgical procedures, you should stop smoking for the duration of the two weeks following the operation, and you should not participate in any activities that will increase blood pressure.
The results of male breast reduction surgery are permanent. Additional surgery is not generally necessary unless the patient gains excess weight.
