How does gynecomastia surgery work?

Knowing the specifics of a male breast reduction surgery will help you determine if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.

Gynecomastia surgery is usually performed under general anaesthesia and it takes around 1 to 2 hours. Depending on your specific condition, the surgery may involve liposuction with or without the removal of breast tissue.

If the primary reason behind gynecomastia is excess fat tissue, performing liposuction alone might be enough for you. 

Your surgeon will start the surgery by creating several incisions to insert cannulas for liposuction. The excess fat tissue is removed to reduce the breast volume. Various liposuction techniques can be used at this stage. The choice will depend on your surgeon’s advice and your choice. If necessary, the excess glandular tissue and skin will then be removed using the direct excision technique.

Your surgeon will finish the operation by closing the incision and placing a supporting and protective garment on the area.

If you are planning to get a male breast reduction surgery in Turkey, travelling is an important issue after the operation. You will have to wait for your first appointment after the operation, which is usually scheduled for 7 to 10 days after the surgery.
