Details

Men who suffer from enlargement in their breasts should first learn from their doctor what type of condition (gynecomastia or another) they have and what treatment they need. Because treatment options vary depending on whether the overdeveloped breast is from fat, breast gland, or a combination of the two. Liposuction is the most commonly used method to remove accumulated adipose tissue in male breasts. Today, apart from traditional liposuction, there are many new generation liposuction techniques that shorten the procedure and recovery time. Slim Lipo technique is one of them. Slim Lipo is a laser liposuction technique designed to reduce the side effects associated with traditional liposuction. This type of liposuction is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures. This laser technology uses an appropriate wavelength to liquefy the fat and tighten the skin in specific areas. For this reason, it is considered to be the most effective procedure for treating localized fat deposits, such as excessive fat tissue in the male breasts, since it permanently eliminates it.

How Does it Work?

Slim Lipo is a less invasive procedure than standard liposuction, so it causes less pain and fewer side effects for the patients who suffer from excessive fat tissue in their breasts. Another advantage of Slim Lipo is that it allows surgeons to perform it under local anesthesia, without the need for hospital admission and with minimal discharge. It allows the patients a faster recovery and with fewer side effects than conventional liposuction.

 

What Does a Male Breast Reduction with Slim Lipo Involve?

1.            Consultation for Male Breast Reduction with Slim Lipo

Your male breast reduction with the Slim Lipo 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 Slim Lipo or any other procedure. It is important to share all your health information, diagnosis and treatment process documents or imaging results that may be useful at this stage.

2.         Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

After your first evaluation, we will offer a list of clinics 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 Slim Lipo treatment process.

3.         Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

You will have a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon at the clinic. Everything about your male breast reduction with Slim Lipo treatment will be discussed and decided during this consultation. The first step is for the doctor to listen to your concerns 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. After establishing a complete and detailed picture of the situation, a physical examination will be carried out, where your surgeon will assess the presence of glandular or adipose tissue, size, consistency or any excess skin, and fat.

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 Slim Lipo treatment. Blood tests and breast ultrasound are usually requested at this stage. Other tests may also be indicated based on clinical findings. Every patient is required to undergo preoperative 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

Slim Lipo offers a minimally invasive technique in contrast to the usual liposuction. Patients are only given local anesthesia. In the process of reducing fat in the male breasts by Slim Lipo, all nerves and blood vessels remain unharmed. The newly developed laser uses a dual-wavelength of approx. 924 and 975 nanometers for precise fat reduction. The fat in the breasts is destroyed and liquefied by the first wavelength. The second wavelength then supports the skin-tightening processes in the breasts. For larger amounts of fat, surgeons can also use a small cannula, which aspirates the liquid cells.


What Should I Expect After Male Breast Reduction with Slim Lipo?

After treatment with male breast reduction with Slim Lipo, you can resume your daily routines in a few days. There may be slight swelling and bruising, but these are not too bad. In the first one to two weeks after treatment, doctors advise you to wear a special compression garment to maintain the optimal shape of the breasts. Of course, the body still responds to calories and little exercise, therefore to maintain the desired success long-term, a healthy lifestyle is necessary.


FAQ


Is Male Breast Reduction with Slim Lipo Procedure Painful?

Post-operative pain can be experienced after the procedure but it can be easily managed by taking prescribed pain medications for a few days.

Can Breast Enlargement Be Prevented in Men?

When breast tissue growth occurs gradually, exercises and dietary practices will usually not help. The fat in the area is often stubborn and constant. However, to maintain this hormonal balance, it is important to pay attention to healthy eating and the schedule of physical activity. Gynecomastia surgery is a good solution to get rid of this problem that affects men so emotionally and mentally, but if you are a good candidate, non-surgical solutions such as Slim Lipo is the most comfortable procedures for enlarged breast tissue.

    I was super skeptical about getting surgery done overseas but Kolan International Hospital was great. Had gynecomastia surgery with some liposuction as well and it's just made such a difference for me. Thanks, guys.

    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.
