How Does It Work?

Gynecomastia surgery is a medical procedure meant to correct the excess development of enlarged breast tissues in males –both young and old. This condition of overgrowth of breast tissues occurs due to an imbalance in two hormones, testosterone, and estrogen.

It’s also believed that excess use of medication such as androgens, anabolic steroids, anti-anxiety medications, and stomach medications can also result in the enlargement of breasts.

For your online consultation, we will kindly ask you to send your photos as shown in the Photography Guide down below, so we can evaluate your case.

What Does Gynecomastia Surgery Involve?

If you decide to have the Gynecomastia surgery, we will make sure that you have a pleasant trip and on the other hand, the surgeons will make it a point that they customize the surgery so as to match your needs, preferences as well as the clinics’ practices.

Here are 4 of the techniques that are used to perform the surgery.

  • Intra-areolar: This is the most common technique used when performing Gynecomastia. The incisions made during this technique extend to the bottom of the areola so that surgeons can easily access the excess skin tissue.

  • Skin resection: This technique is reserved for severe cases –and it does not only involve the removal of excess tissue but the nipple will be transposed as well.

  • Pull-through: This is a less invasive technique and it takes less time to complete. Your surgeon will make a small incision and will remove the excess tissue via liposuction.

  • Ultrasonic liposuction: If your gynecomastia is due to excess fat, your surgeon will more likely use the ultrasonic liposuction technique.

With that said, here are the 6 stages you should expect to go through if you decide to go through this procedure.

1.     Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

Your first consultation will be done online, and when you arrive at the clinic you will have a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon. During this session you are expected to inform the surgeon about your medical record, allergies, and if you’re currently taking any medication.

Even after telling your surgeon about your medical record, it’s mandatory that you go through some medical tests. After going through the details of the surgery, your surgeon will then begin to prepare you for the surgery.

2.     Taking the anesthesia

When the test results are out and your surgeon is satisfied, you will be then given general anesthesia. In some cases, this procedure can be performed while the patient is under local anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Your surgeon will decide what’s best for you.   

3.     Making the incisions

Once the anesthesia has kicked in, your surgeon will begin the surgery by making incisions. If the procedure is going to be performed using the Liposuction technique, the surgeon will make small incisions. But if any other technique is used, the incisions made will be substantial.

4.     Removing the excess fat 

This depends on the technique used. Generally speaking, after incisions have been made, excess fat and glandular tissues from the breasts are removed. After this process, your nipples and areola will be repositioned in a way that brings out the desired results. 

5.     Closing the incisions

When your surgeon is done repositioning your nipples and areola, the next step is to close the incisions using sutures. In some cases, drainage tubes are inserted under the skin so as to drain fluid –this is done so as to minimize the risk of swelling or infection.

6.     After you wake up from anesthesia

After the closing of incisions, the surgeon’s assistants will take you to the next room where you will be monitored. Incisions will be bandaged and you will be helped to wear a compression garment.

7.     Post-Op Instructions

  • After the surgery, you should have someone to drive you home and help you around for the first 2 days after the surgery.

  • Expect to feel some discomfort in the first three days post-surgery. Fortunately, the pain is not severe as it can be handled by the surgeon’s prescription.

  • The drain tubes placed just below your breasts will be removed in 7 or 10 days after the procedure.

  • You are required to take a lot of liquids and add more raw fruits to your diet –this also helps avoid constipation since you won’t be moving around more often.

  • Besides being harmful to overall health, smoking should also be avoided as it can increase the risk of complications and lengthen the healing process.

  • Starting some light exercises such as walking as soon as possible helps to reduce swelling and lowers the chance of blood clots.

  • You should stay away from any job or sport that risks a blow to your chest for at least 4 weeks. 

  • You should have incisions cleaned and inspected daily for signs of infection is recommended by the surgeons.

  • You should avoid the sun for at least 12 months is important.

  • You should wear a special compression garment continuously for 6 weeks to minimize post-op bruising and swelling and to maintain a smooth recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Is Gynecomastia Painful?

You may feel pain or soreness after the procedure is done. However, your surgeon may prescribe painkillers to relieve this pain and discomfort.

Does Gynecomastia Leave a Scar?

Incisions made during surgery leave a scar around the nipple in gynecomastia as in any procedure. If a large reduction is required, the incision and scar will be larger. All gynecomastia scars are permanent, but some scars can be hidden in the natural lines of the breast.

Can Testosterone Therapy Cure Gynecomastia?

Testosterone replacement for the treatment of gynecomastia has been effective in older men with low levels of testosterone but is not effective for men with normal levels of testosterone.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    I’ve had major confidence and self-esteem issues with my body and really wanted to do something about it. I started researching and found Flymedi who had really great reviews, I actually even knew someone who had already used them so started from there. They were really helpful in helping me decide what I wanted and even arranged a video call with the doctor so I could speak to him before committing. Overall great experience!

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I had a plan to get my double chin removed after I lost 100lb of my weight. I live in California therefore, I looked for local quote which averaged around $21k (everything is overpaid in the US). I decided to look online and see how much it will cost in Turkey. I was so uncomfortable to do it overseas anyway. I don’t even speak Turkish. Then, I found Flymedi and sent an email. As a system engineer at Cisco, I had zero trust in any website like this but anyway. I’ve been approached immediately by Nadia. Nadia managed to flip my doubts over. She asked me a very specific questions to understand my case. The rapid paste of progress was incredible (oh wait I feel some trust here). The best part was the WhatsApp messaging. I was able to ask at anytime. I received few quotes from Nadia for different clinics. I looked up these clinics online and they were the best. The cherry on top of the cake was the price. It was about 35% of the American Dr. with better and newer technique (crazy I know).

    HIHad gynaecomastia procedure for my very embarrassing man boobs.Was very apprehensive at first about having surgery done in a foreign country, but heard a lot of good reports on turkey for plastic surgery. I contacted flymedi and was put in contact with nadia. she was my case manager,and from start to finish kept me up to date and informed about my procedure. As you can imagine I was nervous about having the procedure done but should not have been, Nadia arranged for me to use a surgeon in Antalya called Mediface. Once again all went smooth and painless. I also managed to incorporate a 2 week holiday in Alanya at the same time.The surgery took place on 25 june and Nadia was always in contact for support and guidance. I would like to take the opportunity to thank Nadia and Mediface very much for their support. Not only would oi highly recommend them, but am going to book another procedure for next year.paul king

    I sent a request to flymedi regarding vaser liposuction surgery and I was contacted by Mustafa via WhatsApp.Mustafa kindly sent me doctor s CV which I read over several times. I was still a little sceptical about it but after much discussion with Mustafa over WhatsApp he put my mind at ease as he answered all my queries within minutes of texting him. He was there to answer all my questions all the time, and he was never pushy about me booking or coming or anything like that.So I was happy with all the arrangements I arranged my flight tickets and told Mustafa the date I was arriving and he confirmed back with me the date that suited the hospital too. I am writing this review 3days after my surgery and the results are fantastic at the moment.And everything was done exactly how described and Mustafa did an excellent job throughout he was keeping in touch with me every day to make sure everything was going smoothly, thank you Mustafa for making my stay in Turkey a pleasant experienc

I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.

    I arrived in Istanbul after being provided with plenty of information regarding my procedure from Nadia who works with Flymedi. She was very helpful and polite. The day I went to meet the doctor I was amazed with the clinic, its’ cleanliness and how impressive it was overall. After a consultation with Dr. Özge himself, he gave me all the assurances I needed and we proceeded to the operation the next day. After everything was done I was discharged from the hospital the next day and a couple of days later I went to meet him again and he told me I was fine to leave. The constant notifications, updates, and help provided by Flymedi. The overall procedure and the results I’m seeing right now. Everything was perfect and if anybody is in two minds about whether or whether not to have a procedure done via Flymedi, I would STRONGLY recommend you do because they helped me out immensely and I feel like a new man after the operation. I couldn’t be happier with my procedure.
