Gynecomastia is breast enlargement in men.  It is common especially during adolescence due to hormonal changes and this situation is temporary. Breast enlargement in men often has no specific cause or is left over from puberty. However, in some people, excessive weight gain, aging, side effects of drugs (heart medications, cortisone, etc.), excessive alcohol consumption, use of substances used for bodybuilding can cause breast enlargement in men, although rarely, cancer or a mass in the male breast can also occur, especially in a singleton. may cause bilateral breast enlargement.

Breast growth in men occurs in 3 ways; It is either the true type in which only the breast tissue grows, or the false type in which the breast tissue is normal but the tissue is excessive, or the excess of both breast and adipose tissue together.

The treatment is to reduce the excess adipose tissue and/or breast tissue by surgery. The surgery is performed in a hospital environment under general anesthesia. It takes an average of 45 minutes to 1 hour and you stay in the hospital for 1 night. After the operation, a special corset should be used for approximately 4-6 weeks. Depending on the excess and sagging of the breast and adipose tissue, the surgical techniques vary. If there is a significant sagging of the skin, an inverted T-shaped scar remains because the excess skin must also be removed.

Gynecomastia surgeries can be performed on anyone who is healthy and has realistic expectations, starting from the age of 17-18, when puberty ends. However, gynecomastia, which is common especially during adolescence due to hormonal changes, is usually temporary. However, gynecomastia in this age group can cause serious psychological traumas that lead to withdrawal in social life, loss of self-confidence, as well as physical appearance. Therefore, it can be operated without waiting for regression.
