​Gynecomastia or “men’s boobs” is observed in men who have excess growth of fat tissue or glandular tissue in the breast area due to increase in the hormones in this area. This, creating a visual defect, also makes it harder to wear fit clothes. No matter how much the patient goes to gym or train, it is very difficult to turn those tissue in the muscles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Men’s easthetic operations require experienced surgeons. The number of cases of women’s esthetics are more then men’s so the surgeon should be experienced performing men’s esthetics such as gynecomastia or more. Ekol Hospitals have 3 experienced surgeons who will create an individual treatment plan just for you and talk all the details with you.
The key issue is whether it bothers a patient enough to be worth undergoing surgery. Usually men will talk about being embarrassed to take their shirt off at the beach, their shirt clinging too tightly to their chest and looking odd when working out, and puffiness developing in the nipples, particularly when their nipples are warm.
The procedure is one of most easy going and less risky operations amoung all other aesthetic surgeries. The duration is around 1- 1,5 hours and nipple/ areola correction can sometimes be combined according to patients’ needs. The results of the operation is very satisfying and can be noticeable right after one day! Procedure is mostly performed under general anesthesia with laser/vaser liposuction device or sometimes with excisions. Patients can be discharged at the same day or sometimes hospitalized 1 night.
Swellings and bruises are expected after the operation. That is why a compression garment will be given to you and you will be asked to wear it approximately for 4-6 weeks. This will help the results to get more satisfying and help you to have less swellings. You will notice the results right after the surgery when wearing a shirt or t-shirt. The pain limits of each patient is ofcourse different however, we can’t tell that this is a very painful operation.
Gynecomastia patients are warned about the possibility of it coming back. There is no risk of gynecomastia coming back unless the patient goes onto anabolic steroids. The type of the operation should be decided carefully with the patient after physical examination wether to have it done by liposuction or excision.
There are often two very small incisions that are used for the liposuction portion of the procedure. If an excision needs to be done, there will be a scar at the border of the areola. Our surgeons are highly experienced about stiches and closing the incisions so you will not have big noticable scars after the surgery.
So long as your work doesn't involve straining and heavy lifting, you can expect to be back to work about three days after gynecomastia surgery. Some people go back even sooner, and many work from home the next day. You can drive when you are off the pain medication and feel totally unrestricted in order to ensure your and others’ safety.
