Why should you prefer gynecomastia surgery?

Gynecomastia, in short, is an abnormally developing breast enlargement in men. These growths are not malignant and there is no need to be afraid. Gynecomastia can occur in infancy or old age, but most often occurs in adolescence. A study conducted for our country showed that 34% of males who have reached puberty suffer from gynecomastia. The earliest age of puberty for surgical intervention is 17 years.

As mentioned above, gynecomastia is not a harmful condition. It does not regress on its own or disappear completely. Although gynecomastia is not harmful and there is no reason to be afraid of it, it causes people to feel insecure and even ashamed about their external appearance. The main reason for the development of gynecomastia is the imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone. This condition can be treated with medication, especially in adolescence, without the need for surgery. However, the likelihood of this being positive is not always certain.

When medical methods are not effective, breast enlargement becomes too large or a quick solution is sought, gynecomastia surgery is the first choice. The shape and size of the gynecomastia surgery is completely in the hands of the surgeon. For example, if you suffer from fatty gynecomastia, only liposuction method will do. If you suffer from both hard and fatty gynecomastia, both surgery and liposuction will be performed together. However, only one surgery is necessary if you suffer from pure gynecomastia. The type of gynecomastia you have is assessed based on the rate of excess in the breast tissue and the rate of excess in the skin. After that, a decision is made about the surgery to be performed.

The most important factor in choosing gynecomastia surgery is that it is a definitive and permanent solution. Depending on the type of surgery, the affected person will return to his or her life within a very short time. Unless there is excessive weight gain in the future, no one will ever face a problem like gynecomastia again. Gynecomastia is a surgery that carries no risk and takes a very short time compared to an average surgery. The probability of leaving scars on the body after the surgery is very low. Depending on the size of the breast, general anesthesia or local anesthesia may be used. However, in either case, the length of hospital stay is no more than 1 day. Patients are usually discharged on the same day. He comes for check-up at certain intervals recommended by the doctor.

After the operation is completed, a bandage is placed around the breasts. The next day these bandages are replaced by a corset. The corset that is put on instead of the bandages is used for 1 month. However, it is possible to return to your normal daily activities and life. If you are an athlete, it is forbidden to return to your normal sports program for one month. Exactly 6 months after the surgery, your healing process is complete, your surgical scars disappear completely or are less pronounced, and the result of the surgery is certain.
