Details

Gynecomastia is the growth of breasts in men. It is normal during puberty due to hormonal changes, but if it remains, it causes an aesthetic concern that can be annoying in the person who suffers from it. Treatment consists of the removal of the gland through a small cut in the areola. Gynecomastia is a problem that is usually solved with surgery. It is a procedure in which general anesthesia is used, which, as in any operation, involves some risks. Laser liposuction has managed to shorten the recovery process and the discomfort associated with the gynecomastia operation. Also, it is a treatment that only affects the fat, without removing the mammary gland. Laser liposuction has become an effective treatment to significantly reduce excess fat in men's breasts. And it only takes one session to get it.

How Does it Work?

A new laser liposuction technique is a procedure that uses microcannulas to conduct the laser beam, dissolving fat and facilitating subsequent liposuction with less blood loss, fewer bruises, and better skin retraction. Laser liposuction is used to eliminate accumulations of localized fat that are not easily lost through diet or exercise. The effectiveness of laser liposuction to eliminate fat makes it a useful procedure to reduce adiposity in other areas of the body where it can also be applied, such as the abdomen, thighs, pouches, and arms. Therefore, it is a method that makes it possible for men, in addition to eliminating excess breast volume, can eliminate that located in other areas of their body, helping to reshape the body contour and tighten the skin in those areas.

 

What Does a Male Breast Reduction with Laser Liposuction Involve?

1.         Consultation for Male Breast Reduction with Laser Liposuction

Your male breast reduction with the laser liposuction treatment process begins with an online consultation. Our experts listen to your complaints and expectations and they will inform you about whether you need a breast reduction with laser liposuction or any other procedure. It is important to share all your medical data that may be useful at this stage. If available, please share your diagnosis and treatment documents, imaging results and information about your current medications and conditions during this online consultation.

2.         Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

After your first consultation, we will offer a list of clinics and surgeons that meet the criteria you provide us. Once you select one of them, we move on to the next step depending on your choice. The next step will include planning your trip and the entire treatment process.

3.         Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

When you come to the clinic, you will have your first face-to-face consultation with your surgeon. Everything about your male breast reduction with laser liposuction treatment will be discussed and decided during this consultation. Your surgeon will listen to your doubts and wishes and try to understand them. Then you will need to explain your medical history in detail for your surgeon to investigate possible risk factors. Therefore, it is important to know in detail your general health, your family history, and your lifestyle. After establishing a complete picture of the situation, a physical examination will be carried out, where your doctor will assess the presence of glandular or adipose tissue, size, consistency or any excess skin, and fat.

4.         Medical Examinations

Before the procedure, your surgeon will conduct some tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the male breast reduction with laser liposuction. At this stage, blood tests and breast ultrasound results are usually requested. Other tests may also be requested based on the clinical findings and the surgeon's suspicions. Every patient is required to undergo preliminary examinations to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the procedure and if any risk observed at this stage, surgeons try to eliminate them first.

5.         Surgery

Laser liposuction uses the laser to destroy excess fat that causes greater growth of male breasts. It is a safer and less invasive treatment than the traditional surgery used to treat gynecomastia. For this, the doctor makes one or two small incisions, depending on each case, to insert the cannula through them, which aims to break the glandular structure to access the breast fat. The laser projects onto it at two different wavelengths: 924 and 975 nm. In the first case, to liquefy the additional fat (more than 80%), which is aspirated with another thin cannula; in the second, to tighten the skin. The intervention is minimally invasive and only requires the use of tumescent anesthesia to avoid possible discomfort to the patient during the procedure. It is an outpatient procedure, with a very fast postoperative period and recovery: in just two days you will be able to resume your normal routine, although you should follow a series of cares. There are no risks of bleeding, as it does in the usual surgery.


What Should I Expect After Male Breast Reduction with Laser Liposuction?

  • Once the procedure is done, a compression bandage or compression under-shirt garment is worn to help the skin adjust to its new body contour. The compression garment should be worn for three full days and then it will be removed little by little according to the surgeon's instructions.
  • It is normal for discomfort, bruising and inflammation to appear in the operated area, which will gradually disappear.
  • You can resume your daily activities as swelling subsides, approximately 2-3 days following the procedure.
  • Weight lifting and other exercises can begin about two weeks following the procedure. Following laser-assisted liposuction, about 20 days after surgery, it is advisable to practice physical activity aimed at developing the muscle that is no longer hidden from excess fat.

 

FAQ


Is Male Breast Reduction with Laser Liposuction Procedure Painful?

Pain and discomfort after this treatment are so rare but if you experience it, prescribed medications will ease this post-operative pain.

Will This Procedure Change My Nipples?

No, this procedure will not change the size, color, or placement of the nipples.

Will I Have Scars or Sagging Skin?

The incisions for this procedure are small and will be invisible or nearly invisible within a few months. They heal very quickly after the procedure. Men under the age of 60 with good skin tone probably won't notice any sagging skin - laser liposuction procedures are specifically designed to promote skin tightening effects as fat is removed.

    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 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.
