Male Breast Reduction Turkey

Gynecomastia is a disorder in which men suffer from enlarged or excess breast tissue. It is a common problem among men of all age groups. It is characterized by an excess of fat and breast glandular tissue in the chest area. CSP Istanbul plastic surgeons performs male breast reduction surgery for men who suffer from gynecomastia that is attributed to a variety of factors including: heredity, hormone imbalance, or excess weight. Not only can gynecomastia cause men to be dissatisfied with their physical appearance, but it can lead to lack of confidence, embarrassment, and even discomfort during certain physical activities.

What causes Gynecomastia?

Male breast enlargement has generally been attributed to several factors, including:

  •  Unopposed estrogen action on breast tissue
  •  Illicit drugs, such as marijuana
  •  Prescription medication, such as digoxin, furosemide, h1 blocker antacids and several other anti- hypertensive drugs
  •  Pathologic medical conditions, including: liver cirrhosis, malnutrition, hypogonadism, hyperthyroidism, and hormone-producing tumors

    Male Breast Reduction

    In most cases, gynecomastia can be diagnosed from a physical exam and a detailed medical history. If a patient’s gynecomastia is caused by medicine or underlying disease, stopping the medicine or treating the disease will often cure the gynecomastia. If it is caused by a lack of testosterone and increase in estrogen, hormonal treatment may be prescribed.

    Only after the underlying cause has been determined and other treatments have proven ineffective is surgical male breast reduction procedure considered. If male breast reduction surgery is recommended by Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Istanbul, our experienced team of plastic surgeons will remove the excess fat and glandular tissue from the area through liposuction and surgical excision — ultimately lifting and tightening the remaining tissue to create a masculine chest contour for our deserving male patients.
