Male Breast Reduction – 3D Gynecomastia

There is no structural difference between male and female breasts. The only and most significant difference between them is that after puberty, male breasts remain small due to the absence of female hormones and the dominance of male hormones. However, in some cases, male breasts can enlarge, and this condition is called gynecomastia. Besides the aesthetic concern, gynecomastia can also lead to psychological issues.

Gynecomastia can only be treated through surgical methods. The choice of surgical technique depends on the severity of the condition. If there is only an increase in fatty tissue, it can be treated with liposuction (vacuum-assisted fat removal). If there is an increase in both fatty and glandular tissue, the surgical approach involves removing the excess breast tissue through incisions around the nipple. This method does not result in a prominent scar, and stitches are not required. The surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia in a hospital setting. The average duration of the surgery is 1 hour, and patients can be discharged on the same day. Any minimal pain or discomfort that may arise after the surgery can be managed with prescribed oral painkillers. Patients can typically return to work after 3-4 days and engage in light physical activities. After 2 weeks, they can gradually resume mild sports activities, and after 4 weeks, they can begin more intense exercises.
