Laser treatment for gynecomastia

by Dr. Cárdenas

Gynecomastia in men is an alteration in the size of the male breast due to abnormal growth of the mammary gland. It is the most common breast abnormality in males and may affect only one breast (unilateral) or both (bilateral).

What is it?

Centro Medico Estetico Dr. Cardenas offers treatment for gynecomastia in Costa Rica. This treatment is sometimes necessary when there is a growth of the male breasts. This can be due to both the growth of the gland and the increase of fatty tissue in the thorax, or a combination of both. Although this enlargement is always benign, it causes a feminine appearance of the male breast that generally lowers the man’s self-esteem and disrupts his social relationships.


The use of innovative techniques for the treatment of gynecomastia such as laser lipolysis makes it possible to remove excess fat, reduce glandular size and tone the skin of the male breasts safely, using a minimally invasive procedure that guarantees a short recovery period.

How and for what purpose?

Gynecomastia in men does not require the use of general anesthesia during the procedure.

At the same time, the laser allows tightening the skin to prevent the appearance of sagging after the removal of fatty tissue. This same laser is also used in other aesthetic procedures to improve the texture and tone of the skin in different parts of the body.


It is highly effective. The laser is an avant-garde process in aesthetic medicine, and its safety and efficacy in lipolysis treatments have been tested and proven in medical-scientific studies.

Post Treatment

It is recommended to avoid strenuous activities and the use of tight clothing during the first weeks after the procedure. Sun exposure should also be avoided for a few days.
