Pseudogynecomastia: Lipodefine™ laser solution
Pseudogynecomastia is hypertrophy of the male breasts due to fat accumulation. This abnormal development may occur in both breasts or it may be asymmetrical.
It should not be confused with gynecomastia, as the two conditions have different origins; in the case of gynecomastia, the growth occurs in the mammary gland.
According to studies, these disorders affect an estimated 40-60% of men. In the case of pseudogynecomastia, there is no defined age range, as its main cause is excess weight. It can therefore manifest any time between childhood and adulthood.
Pseudogynecomastia does not entail any medical complications, but it does represent an aesthetic problem. When the breasts increase in size, the torso loses its masculinity and this can create insecurities and self-esteem problems in the men who suffer from the condition.
Generally speaking, aesthetic problems in men are still something of a taboo area, as such treatments are usually associated with a woman’s strive for beauty. However, men do not have to live with this problem, as there is a solution that is simpler than people may think.
To deal with the fat located in difficult areas, as is the case with male breasts, INTERmedic has developed a minimally invasive laser solution with effective results. This is the “mini-lipo laser” with Lipodefine™.
Lipodefine™ is the laser tool indicated for body remodelling. Its minimally invasive system facilitates fat elimination from the most difficult areas, as is the case with male breasts. Furthermore, it is the only laser on the market which causes skin retraction through its thermal effect. This means that the patient not only manages to eliminate the fat, but their torso will also appear firmer, thereby regaining their masculinity.
How does Lipodefine™ work?
The LipoDefine™ 980 4G procedure involves inserting a small cannula, 1-mm thick, with a versatile, flexible laser fibre, through a small incision in the skin up to the adipose tissue. This cannula remains in constant movement, to allow the fibre to deliver the laser energy to the area to be treated.
The laser heat causes the adipocyte to tear. The fat cells absorb the energy, increasing their volume until they break, without damaging other tissues in the process. In turn, the thermal effect coagulates small blood vessels, remodels the collagen and causes skin retraction, which cannot be achieved with conventional liposuction (skin tightening).
Lipodefine™ is also indicated for eliminating fat from the following areas:
- Internal area of the thighs
- Stomach with or without flaccidity
- Neck area (double chin)
- Knees and calves
