Gynecomastia Surgery in Cyprus
Gynecomastia is a condition that causes the enlargement of male breasts, also called man boobs due to diseases, hormonal imbalance, or genes. Men or young adults with gynecomastia usually experience name-calling and teasing giving them low self-esteem.
Gynecomastia surgery in Cyprus or also known as male breast reduction surgery is a breast plastic surgery that aims at reducing a man’s large breasts and giving them their confidence back.

Gynecomastia surgery in Cyprus is performed by removing the breast tissues, excess fat and glandular breast tissue that causes gynecomastia. Then our surgeons make incisions as small as possible to avoid visible scarring.
After male breast reduction surgery, there usually is swelling and bruising for a couple of weeks. Men are required to wear a special vest after their operation and follow their doctor’s instructions and tips. The results of a male breast reduction surgery can be immediately felt, but it can take a few weeks to 3 months for the final result to be achieved.
In most cases, the results of gynecomastia surgery are permanent or at least long-term. However, there are cases in which gynecomastia does reoccur based on several factors. These include weight gain, use of substances, hormone fluctuations and other.
The difference between a breast reduction in women and gynecomastia surgery in Cyprus is that female breast reduction is used to minimize the size of breasts whereas surgery for reducing man boobs is used to remove nearly all excess fat and tissue.
You should sleep on your back for at least 3 weeks, so that you do not apply pressure on your recently operated chest. You can also add pillows to elevate your body which can help with swelling.
