A Randomized Controlled Trial Modified Benelli Procedure For Subcutaneous Mastectomy In Gynecomastia
ConclusionsThis technique namely the "modified Benilli technique" provides a relatively simple method with an aesthetically good outcome to treat gynecomastia with a low rate of complications and recurrences.
Discussion: High surgical success rate, coupled with significant improvements in psychosocial functioning suggests that mastectomy is a highly effective intervention for adolescents with gynecomastia. However, due to vague and inadequate coverage and evaluation criteria surgery is often not performed. This paper offers a framework for developing a quantitative system by which to evaluate surgical candidates by adopting well-established guidelines currently in use for reduction mammoplasties and suggests further analysis into a cost/benefit analysis for coverage of the procedure.
Rationale: Prepubertal unilateral gynecomastia is extremely rare, whose etiology and management strategy are not familiar. We would like to present a case and a literature review of unilateral prepubertal gynecomastia. Patient concerns: A 11-year old male patient with complaints of unilateral enlargement of breast tissue presented in our clinic, whose physical examination, biochemical, hormonal and oncologic findings were normal. Diagnoses: This patient was diagnosed as idiopathic unilateral prepubertal gynecomastia (IUPG) and self-abasement, social isolation and sensitive of interpersonal relationship. Interventi...

Gynecomastia is the most common benign enlargement of the mammary gland and adipose tissue in males. Because a feminine-looking chest contour can bring severe psychologic burden to patients, subcutaneous mastectomy has become the standard treatment for this condition. Conventional open surgery causes conspicuous scarring that may affect the appearance of the breast. We provide a novel surgical operative for the treatment of gynecomastia.
