"Enlarged breasts" in men is called as “gynecomastia” and the swollen breast tissue can be removed with surgical treatment. The tenderness or swelling in the breast region is perceived as normal during adolescence due to hormonal imbalances that occur in boys. If this condition becomes permanent with the completion of puberty, gynecomastia can be diagnosed. The boys with weight problems are more likely to develop gynecomastia. There are several types of gynecomastia depending on medication, hormones and tumor. It is necessary to examine the cause of this condition in detail when diagnosing gynecomastia.
What To Do Before Gynecomastia Treatment
Before the treatment, it is necessary to determine the stage of the gynecomastia. Liposuction treatment is performed under local anesthesia in the 1st and 2nd stages. In addition to liposuction, removal of the mammary gland is also necessary in the 3rd and 4th stages. Therefore, general anesthesia is applied during the treatment in the 3rd and 4th stages. After deciding on the treatment, the patient should stop taking blood thinners such as aspirin 10 days before the operation. The patient should provide complete information about his medical history before the operation; if he smokes, he should stop smoking before surgery until the completion of the healing process
What to do after Gynecomastia Treatment
After the operation, the patient rests for a while depending on local or general anesthesia. If it is a 3rd or 4th-stage treatment, the drains are removed within the first 48 hours. Drains are used to remove fluids and blood that build up inside the surgical zone. Immediately after surgery, the patient should wear compression corset for about 3 weeks. At the end of 3 weeks, the patient can only wear corset during the day for about 6 weeks. The corset must be worn during the physically active and challenging situations. After gynecomastia treatment until the corset is completed taken off, it is necessary to avoid the activities such as sauna that may cause edema. In addition, avoiding physical activities and sports that will force the chest area will help the recovery process end up more easily. If the patient cares for his weight and does not gain excessive weight after surgery, there is no chance of recurrence.
