Gynaecomastia is the excess development of breasts in males. This pathology can cause a great emotional impact on the patient. Laser lipolysis is a minimally invasive and traumatic treatment that restores the masculine appearance of the chest.
It is the benign enlargement of the mammary glands in males, which can occur in both breasts or just one.
In general, gynaecomastia is the convergence of two characteristics:
When the fat tissue increases without proliferation of the mammary gland, the condition is known as pseudo-gynaecomastia, in obese or overweight patients.
This cosmetic problem can affect the patient's personal and social relationships, where theyadopt special behaviours in an attempt to hide the condition. For example, avoiding uncovering their torso in public.

This pathology can occur both in childhood and puberty as well as in adulthood. Childhood and pubertal gynaecomastia has physiological causes, is usually transitory and remits spontaneously. The causes of adult gynaecomastia are:
Laser lipolysis or Lipolaser is a laser-assisted technique that removes the fat tissue with less trauma and greater safety than the traditional method. It consists of subcutaneous application of two types of laser: 924 nm, that destroys the fatty tissue, and 975 nm, that tightens the skin and induces collagen formation.
In males, fat accumulation in the breasts is not usually of very high volume, but the pectoral and armpit skin is prone to flaccidity. This is why skin retraction is very important is treating gynaecomastia.
Laser lipolysis is indicated both for treatment of the glandular and fat tissue, typical of gynaecomastia, as well as to remove accumulated fat from the breasts caused by excessive weight.
Laser lipolysis results for gynaecomastia treatment are permanent and successful:
Results are definitive as far as volume is concerned, just one month after the Laser lipolysis treatment. The skin may take a little longer to complete its contraction, since collagen and elastin regeneration is not an immediate process.
