Thanks to a conformable surface applicator, cryolipolysis can be a safe and effective way to treat male pseudogynecomastia, according to a recent study in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine (LSM).

“This split-body study shows that two cryolipolysis cycles with a conformable surface applicator produced a 40.9% reduction in the mean adipose tissue thickness of male breasts with pseudogynecomastia,” says study author Isabela T. Jones, MD, a dermatologist in McLean, VA., in a news release.

Male breast reduction surgeries have increased by 30 percent over the past five years, more than any other plastic surgery procedure for men, according tothe American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The new study was selected as Editor’s Choice in the August 2018 issue of LSM.
