Enlargement of mammary gland tissue and accumulation of fat around the breast tissue can occur in young and adult men. This is called gynecomastia. In young men, the cause is usually a hormonal imbalance, while in adults, fat accumulation is typically due to being overweight. Growth can also result from taking anabolic steroids.
In young men, the glandular tissue usually shrinks on its own as puberty ends. If not, and you have tenderness or cosmetic discomfort, you may consider gynecomastia surgery.
Who are the Ideal Candidates for Gynecomastia?
Ideal candidates for gynecomastia in Turkey are men who experience enlargement of mammary gland tissue. These can advantageously treat surgically.

- Consultation and preparation
In the first consultation, our plastic surgeon will examine you. You will receive advice and guidance from the specialist regarding the operation and follow-up. Before the first consultation, we recommend you use this letter’s back to write down any questions. Thus, don’t forget to ask them where the information will detail in the talk. You can bring a friend or family member to the consultation.
You may have surgery after the initial consultation, as you should have time to think before deciding on surgery. After you have made your decision, the specialist plans the following process individually.
At the same time, you should stop taking blood thinners one week before the surgery. You should not smoke three weeks before and two weeks after the operation. This does ensure the best possible blood flow to the damaged area and provides the best outcome after the procedure.
Anesthesia is essential for your comfort and convenience. You wear unique surgical clothes on the operating bed.
The surgery performs through a small arc-shaped incision on the side of the nipple. In this way, the scar is well hidden.
The surgeon removes excess glandular tissue. If necessary, aspirate with a thin metal cannula from the same cut. Before this, the specialist injects saline containing adrenaline and local anesthetic. The needle doesn’t destroy blood vessels and nerves. These push aside.
Finally, the specialist sutures the incisions with the inner threads that dissolve in the body, with the outer lines that the surgeon must remove after 12-14 days. Wounds are closed with plaster.
