Details

The male breast reduction in which liposuction is performed is usually called "scarless" male breast reduction surgery. Liposuction in this area can be done when the man presents breast at the expense of fatty tissue and not glandular. To differentiate one situation from the other requires a mammogram. Mammography will show whether the breast is at the expense of glandular tissue and requires removal, or is at the expense of fatty tissue and can be liposuctioned.

Although it is necessary to make some incisions, breast reduction through liposuction is a new technology that began to be used to improve the image and health of some patients without leaving visible scars. Liposuction breast reduction consists of removing excess fat tissue from the breasts to reduce the total volume. After the procedure, the remaining skin will shrink naturally over time, adapting to the new volume of the breast.

How Does it Work?

Male breast reduction with liposuction is a quick procedure. The duration of the procedure is usually about 1 hour. After administering general anesthesia and sterilizing the area to be treated, the surgeon makes a tiny incision (only three millimeters), generally in the armpit, which allows the penetration of a cannula through which the fat will be aspirated. Once the suction of the fat is finished, the cannula is removed and the incision is closed with suture. The resulting scar is almost invisible thanks to the tiny size of the incision.


 What Does a Male Breast Reduction with Liposuction Involve?

1.         Consultation for Male Breast Reduction with Liposuction

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

2.         Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

After your first evaluation, we offer a list of clinics and surgeons that meet the criteria you provide us. You will then examine this list and select one of them. Depending on your choice, we move on to the next step: planning your trip and the entire male breast reduction with the liposuction treatment process.

3.         Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon. Everything about your male breast reduction with liposuction treatment will be discussed and decided during this consultation. The first step is for the doctor to listen to your doubts and wishes and try to understand them. Then you will need to explain your medical history in detail to assess any symptoms that may be associated with gynecomastia and to investigate possible risk factors. Therefore, it is important to know in detail your general health, your family history and, above all, your lifestyle. After establishing a complete and detailed picture of the situation, a physical examination will be carried out, where the doctor will assess the presence of glandular or adipose tissue, size, consistency or any excess skin, and fat. Furthermore, a physical examination is essential to understand the possible causes of gynecomastia, such as thyroid changes, increased testicular volume, etc.

4.         Medical Examinations

Before your surgery, your surgeon will conduct some tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the male breast reduction with liposuction. At this stage, blood tests and breast ultrasound are usually requested. Other tests may also be indicated 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 detected at this stage, surgeons try to eliminate them first.

5.         Surgery

  • Once the anesthesia is administered, the initial incision for liposuction is a 7mm cut made at the skin-areola junction of the nipple-areola. The pre-tunnel before liposuction is carried out using a liposuction cannula through the incision. At 3 mm in diameter, liposuction is cannulated with the tip of an inserted instrument and liposuction of the ipsilateral breast is completed. The same procedure is repeated on the other breast. All liposuctions were carried out using an assisted device.
  • At the end of this liposuction step, the sub-areolar part of both breasts remains unchanged. A cannula is inserted through the same incisions and liposuction of the sub-areolar regions of the opposite breasts is also carried out after creating a tunnel through the chest. Liposuction is done in such a way that there is only a 5mm thick layer of fat left under the skin in all regions.


What Should I Expect After Male Breast Reduction with Liposuction?

  • The patients were discharged on the same day as the procedure. This was followed by regular clinical follow-up of 3 months, 6 months, 18 months, and 24 months.
  • After the procedure, it is necessary to wear compression garments for 3-4 weeks. This prevents the accumulation of fluids under the skin and replaces it in place until it has adapted to the decreased volume of the breast.
  • Scars will not be easily visible and fade away in a few months.
  •  It is a procedure after which the appearance of swelling and bruising can be expected.
  • After about 4 days, you will be able to return to normal social and work life.


FAQ

Is Male Breast Reduction with Liposuction Procedure Painful?

Post-operative pain is generally mild and relieves by taking prescribed pain medications for a few days. 

What Are the Causes of Gynecomastia?

There are several causes for the appearance of gynecomastia:

  • The consumption of certain medications such as diuretics, antacids, corticosteroids, neuroleptics, etc.
  • Most often, it is idiopathic, meaning that the cause is not known. 75% of gynecomastias in adolescence are idiopathic and most of the time they come back spontaneously.
  • In older men, an imbalance between estrogens and testosterone must be ruled out.
  • Other causes may be testicular tumors, genetic diseases such as Klinefelter syndrome, hyperthyroidism, pituitary adenoma, and sometimes during acromegaly.
  •  It can also occur in cases of liver cirrhosis, Parkinson's disease, Wilson's disease, and after head trauma or brain tumors.

    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.
