The breasts appear unusually large with noticeable swelling in this condition. It can occur in males of all ages at any stage of life but usually can be seen during infancy, puberty, and old age. The tissue overgrowth may occur in one or both breasts. Gynecomastia usually goes away on its own but in many cases, it does not and may require surgery or medication.

Breast Surgery in Istanbul: Costs and Arrangements
There are many reasons to choose Istanbul as your destination for facial aesthetic procedures. We would like to highlight a few below:
Here are common queries about Breast Surgeries:
There are various types of breast surgeries for medical and cosmetic purposes. Here are some of the most popular breast surgeries in the world:
Breast Augmentation: Also known as ‘Augmentation Mammoplasty’ or ‘Boob Job’, breast augmentation is a surgery to increase breast size. Breast Augmentation is done either with silicone/saline implants or by fat transfer. Both methods have their pros/cons and an experienced plastic surgeon can help you pick the best option. Breast Augmentation is a suitable surgery for you if you have very small breasts naturally or you lost breast volume due to weight loss or pregnancy.
Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty or Gynecomastia): Breast Reduction is a breast surgery for the reduction of excess fat, breast tissue, and skin. This surgery is suitable for anyone who has large breasts and it makes them conscious about their appearance. Sometimes large breasts also cause people physical discomfort, especially during sports activities or when they cannot find clothes that fit them. Breast reduction is also performed on men who suffer from Gynecomastia, a condition in which there is an overproduction of breast gland tissues. Men opt for this surgery because it gives their bodies an odd shape and makes them look overweight.
Breast Lift : Also called Mastopexy, a breast lift enhances your breast shape by lifting it and tightening the skin surrounding it. This surgery is suitable for women who lose fat volume and skin elasticity in their breasts as a result of aging, pregnancy, or drastic weight loss. It is sometimes combined with breast augmentation or reduction. The whole purpose of this surgery is to enhance the shape and size of your breasts so they look fuller and more rounded.
Breast Reconstruction : It is a surgical procedure mostly performed on cancer patients after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Breast reconstruction is performed right after or after a few months or years of mastectomy. Reconstruction of the breasts can be done through implants or tissue transfer. Saline or silicone implants are used to recreate breasts or tissue transfer from another part of the body, typically the lower belly for reconstruction. Patients need to find a board-certified plastic surgeon for safe and effective breast reconstruction surgery.
Lumpectomy Breast Surgery : A lumpectomy is a surgery for breast cancer patients to remove the tumor or cancerous lump in the breast. As compared to a mastectomy, most of the breast is left intact in this procedure. The main purpose is to remove the cancerous cells to stop the metastasizing of cancer. A lumpectomy is performed on early-stage breast cancer patients.
Mastectomy Breast Surgery : Mastectomy is a breast cancer surgery for the complete removal of one or both breasts to treat or prevent breast cancer. Mastectomy is performed on early-stage breast cancer patients or people with a family history of breast cancer. It can take 4 to 8 weeks to recover after Mastectomy.
If you have already made up your mind about getting breast surgery, the next important step is to find the right doctor. The first thing you must look for is the qualifications and experience of the doctor. Typically, breast surgeons perform medical breast surgeries such as mastectomy or lumpectomy.
For cosmetic breast surgeries such as breast augmentation and breast lifts, a board-certified plastic surgeon with expertise in breast surgery is your best bet. We at Dixi Health can help you search for the finest breast surgeons and plastic surgeons in Turkey!
