The problem of enlarged breasts in men is called gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is an aesthetic problem seen only men. Gynecomastia problem, which is mostly harmless to health, negatively affects the psychology and self-confidence of men. The biggest known cause is obesity. However, it may also occur as a result of the use of some medications and addictive substances or hormonal changes.
Gynecomastia is most common in adolescence, due to hormonal changes. In adults, it is more common between the ages of 50-70. Gynecomastia is seen in 1 in 4 men in this age group.
Lack of self-confidence caused by gynecomastia, which is the problem of almost 40% of men, becomes a serious problem from time to time. There are three main types of gynecomastia: real breast tissue in glandular type, increase in adipose tissue in lipomatous type, and increase in breast tissue and adipose tissue in mixed type. Gynecomastia surgery is the most effective method in solving these problems. The operation method to be applied may vary depending on the type of gynecomastia. Before the operation, the mass is examined with ultrasound. It can be revealed whether the mass consists only of adipose tissue.
The patient should rest for two days after the operation. Due to the tension in the muscles and the pain that increases with the movement of the arm, the patient should rest in an upright position. During this period, the patient may have some swelling and bruising on his breasts. This swelling and bruising will begin to decrease after 15 days. A corset should be worn for about 3 weeks to ensure gynecomastia recovery. In this process, it is expected to avoid lifting heavy loads and sports in which chest and arm muscles are used extensively.
