Here, the important factor is the size of glandular tissue. If the disc measures smaller than 4 cm in diameter, we inform the patient and allow the enlargement of breast disappear spontaneously.

If diameter of the disc is between 4 and 6 cm, we start medical treatment. If the disc measures larger than 6 cm, the only option we have is a surgical procedure

Gynecomastia Surgery

Methods we use for gynecomastia surgery are as follows:

  • Scar-free Gynecomastia Surgery: This method is called Liposuction in medical literature. We remove the entire fat tissue and next, we break down the breast tissue in this procedure. We create a 5-mm hole in mammary gland and remove the breast tissue through this hole using PULL-THROUGH technique. This procedure alone is sufficient for some of our patients.
  • Gynecomastia Surgery with Incision: A lunar incision is made on the brown part of the nipple and excess tissue is removed through the incision in this method.
  • Liposuction and Incision: In this procedure, we evaluate our patients and determine grade of their disease. We proceed to the treatment phase according to type of gynecomastia (glandular, mixed and lipomatous).
