A very positive outcome

A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Thank you Flymedi

I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

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.
