Gynecomastia Surgery

Surgical intervention is the most effective and definitive method in the treatment of gynecomastia. Although the operation is usually performed under general anesthesia, local anesthesia may be preferred in some cases. The type of intervention is determined by the surgeon after examination.

After Gynecomastia Surgery

The person may be discharged on the same day after the operation. Depending on general anesthesia, the person may need to be supervised overnight, but this is not very common.
Edema and swelling in the area after gynecomastia surgery is normal. These formations spontaneously resolve within the first week. There may be slight muscle pain after the operation. Resting for 3 days after gynecomastia surgery, not moving the arms and shoulders too much is important for the comfort and healing process of the person. On the third day of the operation, the patient can take a shower, considering not showering for a long time, also the patient can return to work and can have a light walk.

After Gynecomastia surgery, the continuous use of Gynecomastia corset is one of the most important points. This corset, which is very simple to use, should be worn immediately after the surgery and should be worn continuously for the period determined by your doctor.
