Why is Gynecomastia Surgery so common?
- Gynecomastia is an increasingly common problem among Indians
- This is due to the increased occurrence, better awareness and also due to the availability of better treatment options than just excision(gland removal), which was followed until a few years ago
- Now, the recommended treatment for any stage of gynecomastia is a combination of Liposuction and Excision, also known as Lipo-Excision.
With these techniques, can all grades of Gynecomastia can be treated like the before and after pictures above?
- While liposuction deals with the removal of the fat so that the chest is better contoured aesthetically; excision deals with the removal of the excess breast tissue. When used in combination, Lipo-Excision consistently yields excellent and predictable results.
How is Gynecomastia graded?
- Depending on the amount of breast tissue and the amount of loose skin on top of it, Gynecomastia is graded in three grades. They are Grades 1, 2A, 2B and 3 (Sometimes these are referred to as four grades, but technically they fit into these three grades).
- Grade 1 is someone with a mild amount of breast tissue without any skin looseness. They sometimes just come with puffy nipples. Here are some examples.
- Grade 2A is the presence of a moderate amount of breast tissue without loose skin. The size of the gland is bigger than in grade 1.
- Grade 2B is where there is a moderate amount of breast tissue with some amount of extra skin.
- Grade 3 is when there is a large amount of breast tissue with a lot of loose skin.
Dr. Sreekar Harinatha’s modified gynecomastia grading is now widely used and includes skin tone in the assessment of a patient. It is published in the prestigious Brazilian Journal of Plastic Surgery.
