Male breast enlargement in the form of a female breast is called gynecomastia. Although it is known that gynecomastia is caused by certain hormonal disorders and lung and breast cancers, it is not usually caused by any serious health problems. In fact, the cause is rarely detected. However, it is necessary to ensure that there is no underlying disease. The aim of gynecomastia treatment is to reduce extremely large breasts in men.
Although it is mostly treated with liposuction, it may be necessary to use open methods in some cases.

How long does the surgery take?
Gynecomastia surgery is performed under general anesthesia. It takes 1-2 hours according to the process. The patient is hosted in the hospital for 1 night. Although there is tension and slight pain in the breasts, it can be controlled with appropriate medications. A special corset is recommended for 2 weeks. Heavy and challenging activities should be avoided for the first 4 weeks. After 2 weeks the swelling decreases rapidly. Breasts take their last shape in 3-4 months.
Does it leave permanent scar?
Gynecomastia doesn't have a permanent scar.
Are the results permanent?
The results of gynecomastia surgery are permanent unless there is an excess weight gain.
The costs of gynecomastia surgery can vary greatly based on the surgeon's experience and the exact type of procedure. The costs of gynecomastia surgery and many other plastic surgery surgeries in Turkey are much lower than in Europe and America.
In most cases, gynecomastia surgery costs are not covered by health insurance because the procedure is mostly considered cosmetic rather than reconstructive.
