What to Know About
The growth of breast tissue in men more than it should be is called “gynecomastia”. It is usually caused by an excess of estrogen hormone. Comprehensive studies have shown us that gynecomastia is quite common. It is estimated that one out of every three men today has gynecomastia. Gynecomastia, which can occur in infancy and old age, is most common in adolescence.
Gynecomastia is a disorder caused by the irregularity of estrogen and testosterone hormones. Most of the patients who apply to our clinic do not have any disease. Side effects of certain drugs, hormonal changes, bad habits such as alcohol and smoking, and various health problems such as liver failure can cause gynecomastia.
- Swelling in the breast tissue,
- Nipple discharge from one or both breasts
- One breast is slightly larger than the other breast
- Pain or tenderness in the breasts
- The feeling of a lump in the lower part of the nipple
These are the most common symptoms of gynecomastia. But just like women, men also get breast cancer. The above-mentioned symptoms can also occur with breast cancer. Therefore, if you have complaints similar to the above symptoms, you should apply to a health institution without wasting time.

Surgical intervention is the most effective and definitive method in the treatment of gynecomastia. Your doctor will decide how to intervene after detailed examinations. Surgery methods may vary as there are different types of gynecomastia.
In patients with glandular type gynecomastia, hard breast tissue is predominant and this tissue is surgically removed.
Mixed-type gynecomastia has excess glandular tissue and adipose tissue. Surgery combined with liposuction.
Fatty-type gynecomastia has excess adipose tissue and can only be treated with liposuction.
The surgery is performed under anesthesia for approximately 2 hours, depending on the method applied and the degree of breast enlargement. In open surgery, tiny incisions are made in the lower part of the chest area and excess skin and breast tissue are removed. The incisions are closed and the surgery is completed.
After the gynecomastia surgery, the patient is discharged on the same day or the next day according to the doctor’s preference. It is recommended that patients rest for 2-3 days after the operation. Resting is important in accelerating the recovery process. Edema and swelling are normal after surgery. These disappear on their own within a week. Patients should wear a corset for 3 weeks after surgery. This corset should be used for up to 6 weeks while doing heavy activities such as sports, even after removal with the doctor’s permission. Gynecomastia is eliminated by surgery and usually does not recur.
Prices of gynecomastia surgery vary according to the type of gynecomastia, the size of the patient’s breast tissue, the patient’s weight, the type of anesthesia, and the demands of the plastic surgeon and the patient. You can find out the current prices after consulting the surgeon. Gynecomastia surgery in Turkey has a much more affordable price compared to other countries due to differences in purchasing power parity, government aid, and competition.
