Gynecomastia is the growth of breasts in men. It is normal during puberty due to hormonal changes, but if it remains, it causes an aesthetic concern that can be annoying in the person who suffers from it. Treatment consists of the removal of the gland through a small cut in the areola. Gynecomastia is a problem that is usually solved with surgery. It is a procedure in which general anesthesia is used, which, as in any operation, involves some risks. Laser liposuction has managed to shorten the recovery process and the discomfort associated with the gynecomastia operation. Also, it is a treatment that only affects the fat, without removing the mammary gland. Laser liposuction has become an effective treatment to significantly reduce excess fat in men's breasts. And it only takes one session to get it.

How Does it Work?
A new laser liposuction technique is a procedure that uses microcannulas to conduct the laser beam, dissolving fat and facilitating subsequent liposuction with less blood loss, fewer bruises, and better skin retraction. Laser liposuction is used to eliminate accumulations of localized fat that are not easily lost through diet or exercise. The effectiveness of laser liposuction to eliminate fat makes it a useful procedure to reduce adiposity in other areas of the body where it can also be applied, such as the abdomen, thighs, pouches, and arms. Therefore, it is a method that makes it possible for men, in addition to eliminating excess breast volume, can eliminate that located in other areas of their body, helping to reshape the body contour and tighten the skin in those areas.

4. Medical Examinations
Before the procedure, your surgeon will conduct some tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the male breast reduction with laser liposuction. At this stage, blood tests and breast ultrasound results are usually requested. Other tests may also be requested based on the clinical findings and the surgeon's suspicions. Every patient is required to undergo preliminary examinations to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the procedure and if any risk observed at this stage, surgeons try to eliminate them first.
Laser liposuction uses the laser to destroy excess fat that causes greater growth of male breasts. It is a safer and less invasive treatment than the traditional surgery used to treat gynecomastia. For this, the doctor makes one or two small incisions, depending on each case, to insert the cannula through them, which aims to break the glandular structure to access the breast fat. The laser projects onto it at two different wavelengths: 924 and 975 nm. In the first case, to liquefy the additional fat (more than 80%), which is aspirated with another thin cannula; in the second, to tighten the skin. The intervention is minimally invasive and only requires the use of tumescent anesthesia to avoid possible discomfort to the patient during the procedure. It is an outpatient procedure, with a very fast postoperative period and recovery: in just two days you will be able to resume your normal routine, although you should follow a series of cares. There are no risks of bleeding, as it does in the usual surgery.
