What is Gynecomastia?

Excessive breast enlargement seen in men for different reasons is called gynecomastia. This condition, usually seen in one breast, may sometimes occur in both breast tissues. The size of both breasts is usually different from each other. If you experience a single breast size increase, consult your doctor again.

We can see gynecomastia in newborn babies and in adolescent and adult men. Hormone metabolism works differently in certain periods of life. One of the most important causes is excessive hormone secretion.


What are the Reasons of Gynecomastia?

The causes of enlarged breast tissue in men may differ. Here are the most common causes:

  • Increase in estrogen level because of fluctuations in testosterone hormone level
  • Medicines used to treat different diseases
  • Excessive weight gain and obesity
  • Anabolic and steroids that are illegal but used by athletes

The situations we have listed are those that cause gynecomastia in men. Sometimes, although the hormone values ​​are normal, excessive growth may still occur. If you think you are facing these situations, you can contact us and get further information about Gynecomastia with Rebornia Center.

Who is at Risk of


People with a genetic family history of gynecomastia, those with obesity problems, people who use doping to gain effective muscle mass, and people who consume foods with high estrogen content. Many diseases are genetically found in our bodies. For this reason, people who have gynecomastia in their families should be more careful.

    What are the Symptoms of Gynecomastia?

    Symptoms of the disease are usually the same for everyone. Visible swellings in the breast tissue are hypersensitivity on the nipple and its sides, nipple discharge, redness in the breast tissue, and sagging of the breast tissue. If you have any of these symptoms listed, you should definitely consult a specialist doctor.

    The signs of infection in the breast tissue are the same as the symptoms of gynecomastia. For this reason, the specialist physician decides whether there is an infection or not. While the infection occurs suddenly, gynecomastia continues for a long time. For this reason, you should report all the symptoms you see to your doctor completely.

    In order to diagnose the disease, a physical examination is first performed by a specialist physician. The doctor learns about the person’s family history and disease history. In this process, the patient should fully explain all the symptoms that he/she notices to the physician. After the evaluation of the breast tissue, hormone controls are performed. Testosterone and estrogen levels are measured.

    In order to make a definitive diagnosis, examinations, such as computed tomography and ultrasound, should also be applied. There may be an increase in the breast fat layer resembling gynecomastia. Since the two are not in the same situation, they should be evaluated differently. If a hard mass in the breast is palpated during the examination, this should be evaluated in terms of breast cancer.

    How Is Gynecomastia Diagnosed?

    What are the Treatment Options in Gynecomastia?

    The enlargement of the breast tissue is usually a self-limiting ailment. However, gynecomastia, which does not go away on its own and disturbs people in their daily lives, must be treated. Two methods are used to treat the disease. It is drug therapy and surgical intervention. The method that will be used is decided by the physician after the necessary checkups are made. Sometimes, primary hormonal treatment is arranged and then surgical intervention is started.

    In drug therapy, drugs that suppress estrogen and stimulate testosterone release are prescribed. The surgical intervention method is also performed in two different ways. In the liposuction method, excess fat accumulated in the breast tissue is removed by the suction method. However, the mammary gland tissue is left. In the mastectomy method, the mammary gland tissue is completely removed. It is a surgery performed with a small incision. The incisions disappear in time. Therefore, you do not need to be afraid of leaving scars. Our clinic is known for its post-operative care. If you want to have a mastectomy without a scar, you can contact Rebornia Center.

    Gynecomastia Surgery

    Mastectomy is a surgical procedure used to treat gynecomastia. It is performed under general anesthesia. An incision is made under the breast or under the armpit. All tissues in the mammary gland are taken sequentially. It is a painful procedure. The duration of the operation varies according to the size of the breast tissue and the agility of the surgeon. After the tissues are removed, aesthetic sutures are thrown. Good wound care should be applied after the operation in order to prevent the operation scar.

    The operation time varies between 45-60 minutes on average. Depending on the anesthesia method the patient will take, the time may also be extended. In surgeries performed with local anesthesia, pain formation is less since an anesthetic medicine is injected under the tissue.

    After Gynecomastia Surgery

    There is no need for hospitalization after Gynecomastia surgery. The corset recommended by the doctor should be used after the operation. Doctor control is applied 3 days after the operation. The patient should not use substances that will affect blood flow, such as alcohol and cigarettes, for at least 1 month. The dressing should be done regularly. The swelling in the body takes 6 months to recover.

    Gynecomastia surgery is usually an operation with a low risk of complications. However, in some cases, infection and bleeding may occur. The drain that your doctor inserts reduces the chance of bleeding. After the operation, you should definitely use the antibiotic prescribed by your doctor. You can manage your pain by taking painkillers at specified periods. Heavy sports are strictly prohibited. However, after 3 weeks, you can do light-paced walks. After your check-up is completed, you can return to work if you wish.

    Gynecomastia Prices

    There are some criteria that are taken into consideration while determining the prices of the operation. The price policy of the hospital where the operation is performed, the surgeon’s fee, the operation time, the technique used for the operation, the number of personnel, the hospitalization fee, and the anesthesia method. A certain price offer is offered according to these criteria.

    Don't Have A Question

    We have compiled the most frequently asked questions by our patients for you.

    Curious about gynecomastia

    Even if the breast tissue of a patient diagnosed with gynecomastia is reduced with drugs, physical skin sagging is seen. Therefore, surgery is absolutely necessary for the definitive treatment of the disease. Medication can be used for patients with first-stage gynecomastia. However, it cannot be said to be a definitive solution.

    Unless necessary treatments are arranged, gynecomastia can progress. The risk of breast cancer in men is negligible. However, people with a history of gynecomastia and untreated are always at risk compared to other men. If people who have surgery for gynecomastia do not have the necessary controls and do not pay attention to their diet, the disease may reoccur.

    The growth of breast tissue should be prevented. Unhindered tissue growths continue the progression process. Breast sagging is a serious physical problem for men. The deterioration in the image of the person causes a decrease in self-confidence and a bad psychological feeling in the future. Therefore, the treatment of the disease is important both physiologically and psychologically.
