What are the Treatment Methods?

In some cases, gynecomastia may go away automatically. It is known that breast growth, especially in adolescence, goes away after a while without the need for any treatment. However, in cases where it does stay, the negative effects it causes in terms of appearance also affect the psychology and self-confidence of the person. Therefore, this condition needs to be treated.

Gynecomastia treatment can be treated with different techniques depending on the severity of the patient’s condition. While the problem is resolved with liposuction in non-severe cases, surgical procedure is preferred for other cases. In the surgical procedure, excess breast tissue and skin are removed or a double incision mastectomy is performed.

Liposuction aims to remove the fat in the related area. It is not possible to remove breast tissue with this method. The most important treatment option for people who are seriously affected by this problem is gynecomastia surgery.
