Dr Dinev is a very professional surgeon, I have the highest regard for his care. On my initial consolation he was very concerned about an irregular mole and advised he would remove and have tested, In addition to this during surgery he also lasered several other suspect blemishes. With regard to my surgery I was advised what to expect and I felt at ease. I am now a month post surgery. The breast that was larger still is as is the smaller one, a little smaller, however I have been advised that I should wait three months before full result is realized. I stayed at Europa Hospital, the staff were all very pleasant and did their best to make me comfortable however very little English was spoken.

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) Overview

Gynecomastia is a common condition where men develop breasts. In some cases, one breast develops more than the other resulting in asymmetry.

 

Typically, these men progress with small breasts, but these men can also grow very large breasts. It is a very embarrassing condition and can only be treated with male breast reduction.

 

Men with gynecomastia feel ashamed about the appearance of their chest because it is not considered “normal” for men to have breasts. They can experience medical issues such as pain, however most of their issues are emotional (decreased self-esteem, depression, loss of confidence).

 

The causes of male breast development are still being studied. Scientists believe that it is mostly a result of a hormonal imbalance. Men with gynecomastia have high levels of the female sex hormone estrogen and low levels of the male sex hormone testosterone.

 

Teenage boys can develop gynecomastia because their hormones are fluctuating while older men can develop it because testosterone slowly fades away.

 

There are, however, a number of other reasons men develop breasts. Some men have a genetic predisposition to the condition while others acquire it as a result of drug use: anti-depressants, blood pressure medicines, marijuana, and steroids.

 

Another related condition called pseudogynecomastia defines the development of male breasts because of excess weight. Typically, this development is mostly made up of fat and can be treated with a healthy diet and exercise. They can also undergo the liposuction-only breast reduction technique.

 

Male breast reduction can involve surgery, a combination of surgery and liposuction or just liposuction, which can add up to an expensive overall cost for male breast reduction. This is in addition to the hospital admission fees, anesthetic and the surgeon's charges.

 

Cyprus is among the most cost-effective destinations for plastic surgery. The natural beauty of Cyprus is enticing medical tourists. The cost of male breast reduction in Cyprus makes the island an inviting destination for many men from Europe and the US.

 

To undergo a breast reduction, men need to be emotionally secure and physically healthy.

 

Depending on how severe the gynecomastia is, your insurance company may cover some or all of the cost of your breast reduction.

 

A Good Candidate for Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

Men who have gynecomastia and have tried to reduce the excess fat with diet and exercise are good candidates for male breast reduction surgery.

 

Preparing for Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

To prepare for male breast reduction you should consider the following:

· Avoid medicines containing aspirin or ibuprofen a few weeks prior to surgery.

· Eat a balanced nutrient-rich diet before and after surgery. A healthy diet will help speed your male breast reduction recovery.

· Do not eat or drink after midnight the night before surgery, unless instructed otherwise by your doctor.

· Do not wear make-up, contact lenses or other accessories to your surgery.

· Arrange to have someone take you home after surgery. If possible have them stay with you that evening around the house for a few days while you recover.
