What Grade Of Gynecomastia Am I?

Most surgeons use Simons classification for standardisation. For easier communication I grade gynecomastia in my patients according to how big the gland is and if there is skin laxity.

So for small gland it's type 1.

Moderately enlarged gland with no excess skin is type 2.

With some loose skin but not severe it's type 3 in my opinion. Here you may get away with surgery without skin excision.

Type 4 is when it's severe loose skin and the nipple is over the breast crease or fold and in most cases skin excision is required.
