My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Recommended For Male Breast Reduction with Laser Liposuction

Male breast reduction with laser liposuction (or in short “laser lipo”) candidates should be in appropriate overall health apart from having the gynecomastia condition diagnosis.

Not Recommended For Male Breast Reduction with Laser Liposuction

If you are suffering from any negative effects of gynecomastia and would like to get rid of it permanently, your doctor will evaluate your eligibility and your gynecomastia degree to undergo male breast reduction with laser liposuction procedure.

Overview

Some men have the condition of gynecomastia which refers to the appearance of enlarged breasts due to the hormonal changes, use of certain medicines, genetics, or other reasons. It is estimated that 50% of men in the United States experience some degree of gynecomastia throughout their lives. Gynecomastia can occur at any age, and breast reduction in men can be performed safely and successfully for both teenagers and adults. 

There are different kinds of breast reduction technique using depends on the grade of the gynecomastia. These treatment techniques include liposuction, breast glands excision, laser liposuction or combined procedures in the advanced grades. 

Male breast reduction with laser liposuction or laser assisted liposuction in gynecomastia is safe and effective treatment on fatty tissue, with a reduction in breast volume, together with significant skin tightening. If an appropriate amount of energy is provided by an experienced operator, the results become both significant and consistent. 

Preparation

Patients should stop taking any blood thinners, such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, or fish oils. If you smoke, you need to stop because it can affect the healing process. It is also recommended to stop drinking any caffeinated or alcoholic beverages before the surgery.

How It Is Performed

Laser lipolysis or male breast reduction with laser liposuction is a laser-assisted technique that removes fat tissue more safely and simply than the traditional liposuction method. This technique consists of subcutaneous application of two types of lasers: 924 nm, which destroys fatty tissue, and 975 nm, which tightens the skin and induces collagen formation. In men, the accumulation of fat in the breasts is usually not very high, but pectoral and armpit skin tend to be loose. Therefore, this method of treating gynecomastia as well as tightening of the skin has become very popular.

Recovery

Recovery times of male breast reduction with laser liposuction are different, but patients may plan to move away from work and strenuous exercises for at least one week. Skin tightness can be seen immediately after the procedure. There may also be some bruising, swelling and irritation at the treatment site, but it is temporary. 

Risks

Some risks and complications associated with the male breast reduction with laser liposuction procedure may occur after the treatment, such as:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Infection
  • Irritation in the breast area

Side Effects

Common side effects of male breast reduction with laser liposuction often include: 

  • Tenderness
  • Bruising
  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Irritation

Success Rates

According to a study conducted to measure the satisfaction of male breast reduction with laser liposuction procedure, the rate is reported as around 85%.  

Before And After

After the swelling is reduced during the recovery of male breast reduction with laser liposuction, patients will see the results immediately, because excess fat in the breast area is completely removed. In this procedure, patients also benefit from skin tightening at the site of application. This benefit makes laser-assisted liposuction more attractive than conventional liposuction.

Faq

What is Male Breast Reduction with Laser Liposuction?

It is a mostly preferred laser assisted procedure by men suffering from gynecomastia, considering the advantages of both removing excess fat and tightening the skin.

Is Male Breast Reduction with Laser Liposuction Painful?

A local anesthetic is injected into the breast area; therefore, patients do not feel any pain during the procedure. After the procedure, it may cause some discomfort or pain but these complaints are easily relieved by prescribed and simple pain medicines. 

Is there any alternative treatment for Gynecomastia?

Medications are more effective in treating gynecomastia in its early stages. After the breast tissue has become scarred, medications become less effective, and surgical removal of the excess fat or glandular tissue becomes the only possible treatment. Breast reduction surgery with a conventional liposuction, breast glands excision or laser liposuction have been used in severe cases of the condition, long-term gynecomastia, or in cases in which drug therapies have not been effective.
