One of the most important reasons for breast augmentation surgery is that the breasts are too small compared to your body or in the sizes that you want. Breast augmentation surgery can be performed due to some genetic diseases or health issues for the patients lost their breasts after breast cancer.
Breast augmentation surgery lasts for approximately 1 hour and you are examined before the surgery.

Gynecomastia / Enlargement of Male Breast
Gynecomastia (male breast enlargement) refers to female breast enlargement in men due to hormonal reasons or to some medicines used. It may also occur due to some genetic diseases.

However, the treatment methods are the same.
During the adolescence period, a follow-up is recommended for male patients who complain about a female type breast. Because when adolescence ends, male breast enlargementmay end. If there are genetic diseases or hormonal reasons, the treatment of these causes is planned first and then the surgical procedure is applied.
A patient with a complaint of male breast enlargement is examined in detail and mammary ultrasound is usually requested. The method of the surgery to be performed is determined according to the examination and ultrasound results.
