The condition of gynecomastia (enlarged or overdeveloped male breasts) occurs as a result of the excessive development of the soft tissue and the channels in the breast where the vessels and nerves of the male breast extend. In gynecomastia, the appearance of the breast may be symmetrical or asymmetrical. Male breast can grow due to various hormonal or tumoral reasons, genetics and side effects of some drugs. Most of the time it grows structurally without a specific reason. Gynecomastia can cause social and psychological problems, especially in young men. If the growth is smaller than 4 cm, but the complaints are very high, drug treatment is applied and results will be obtained in a short time. If the growth is larger than 6 cm and drug treatment is not successful, surgical treatment should be applied immediately. Gynecomastia surgery is a male breast reduction procedure. Liposuction which is applied in combination with mammary gland removal techniques, is one of the most popular methods. After the examination, surgeons determine which gynecomastia technique is more suitable for the patient.
Gynecomastia removal is recommended for individuals with a growing bust, either due to fatty tissue or enlarged breast tissue.Around 75 to 90% of pubertal gynecomastia cases pass by themselves within 2 years, without the need for any treatment. However, it may cause psychological stress and depression in adolescents.
