Abstract Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of suction-assisted liposuction (SAL) in Simon grade 2b gynecomastia and its effect on sternal notch to nipple areola (SNN) distance. Methods: A retrospective analysis was performed on 21 patients with grade 2b gynecomastia who underwent SAL. Preoperative and postoperative SNN distances of the patients were measured, the results were analysed using a Mann–Whitney U test and a p-value <.05 was accepted as statistically… 
The Effect of Suction-Assisted Liposuction on Reduction of Diameter of Nipple-Areola Complex Among Patients with Simon Grade IIb and III Gynecomastia
It can be concluded that suction-assisted liposuction provides a sufficient reduction concerning the diameter of nipple-areola complex without scar formation.
Gynecomastia and Chest Masculinization: An Updated Comprehensive Reconstructive Algorithm
A four-tier classification system has been used to classify the deformity and to assess a surgical plan for bilateral gynecomastia and a comprehensive classification system and a reconstructive algorithm are proposed.
Incidence of Complications for Different Approaches in Gynecomastia Correction: A Systematic Review of the Literature
The combined use of surgical excision and aspiration techniques seems to reduce the rate of complications compared to surgical excison alone, but the lack of unique classification and the presence of several surgical techniques still represents a bias in the literature review.


Surgical Management of Gynecomastia: An Outcome Analysis
It is shown that subcutaneous mastectomy using a circumareolar incision without additional liposuction provides a good or very good aesthetic outcomes in patients with Simon grades I to IIa gynecomastia and that it is challenging to achieve a very good or even a good aesthetic outcome in patientswith Simon grades IIb to III gyne comastia.
Surgical Correction of Gynecomastia in Thin Patients
The authors’ method of using power-assisted liposuction and gland removal through a subareolar incision for thin patients with bilateral grade 1 or 2 gynecomastia is described, which showsliposuction has the advantages of reducing the fat tissue where necessary to allow skin retraction and of reduced the traces left by surgery.
Surgical Management of Gynecomastia—a 10-year Analysis
Caution must be taken in performing large resections, which are associated with increased complication rates, and Histological tissue analysis should be routinely performed in all true gynecomastia corrections, because histological results may reveal atypical cellular pathology.
Gynecomastia Surgery Is Associated with Improved Nipple Location in Young Korean Patients
Nipple positions were considerably lower in patients with gynecomastia than in control subjects, and further efforts are needed to improve the location of postoperative nipple-areola complex in patientsWith gynegocele, a principle element of mastectomy design is defining the normal location of nipple based on major anatomical reference points.
Correction of Gynecomastia Through a Single Puncture Incision
A surgical approach for removal of both glandular and adipose tissue using a small 3-mm areolar stab wound incision and a piecemeal glandular resection to correct gynecomastia with minimal and imperceptible external scarring is described.
Anatomical Parameters for Nipple Position and Areolar Diameter in Males
Use of anatomic parameters for nipple position and areolar diameter in males will enhance the aesthetic results of gynecomastia correction, and there is a paucity of information in the current literature pertaining to this problem.
Surgical Treatment of Gynecomastia: Mastectomy Compared to Liposuction Technique
The surgical treatment of gynecomastia required an individual approach, depending on symptoms (lump or enlargement) and requirements of patients, and patients who chose mastectomy were looking for reassurance that their pathologic diagnosis was benign.
Gynecomastia Management: An Evolution and Refinement in Technique at UT Southwestern Medical Center
This technique provides a safe and aesthetically pleasing way to treat gynecomastia with a low need for revision, which relies on ultrasonic liposuction and pull-through technique to remove breast tissue.
Ultrasonic Liposuction in the Treatment of Gynecomastia
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction is an effective treatment modality in patients with homogenous soft to moderately firm gynecomastia, giving good cosmetic results and a high level of patient satisfaction.
