Price of Male Breast Reduction Surgery / Gynecomastia

The Price of Male Breast Reduction surgery will depend upon the amount of time the surgery takes. There are several different types of gynecomastia. It also depends upon ghr experience of the plastic surgeon, the results the surgeon can provide, the type of anesthesia used, the facility, etc.
Treatment of ‘pure glandular’ gynecomastia 
‘Pure glandular’ gynecomastia (puffy nipples) can usually be treated by direct tissue excision alone. This type of treatment does not involve fatty tissue excess or significant skin excess. The glandular breast tissue proliferation is located immediately behind the nipple and areola and is removed through an incision placed at the inferior border of the areola. The incision can be limited, in most cases, from about the 4 o’clock to the 8 o’clock position of the areola. The color difference between areolar skin and chest skin conceals this type of incision quite nicely for most patients.

Male Breast Reduction Cost

As noted by many other surgeons on this site, the cost of gynecomastia surgery varies depending on the extent of the condition as well as the location. In my practice, the cost for most patients is approximately $6500, which includes all fees (surgeon, hospital, anesthesia and pathology).  It is slightly higher if skin removal is required.  Insurance rarely covers the procedure, which is considered cosmetic by most insurance carriers.

Your type and degree of gynecomastia will determine what type of surgical intervention is needed. Liposuction vs direct surgical excision. Cost will depend on where you live and the type or degree of repair needed. The cost usually ranges from $6000-$7500 and is not typically covered under insurance.

Male breast reduction cost

Male breast reduction cost can vary depending on if there is a need for excision of any skin or just liposuction with removal of the glandular tissue by direct excision.

For liposuction with direct excision of the glandular tissue, costs are $4500 for everything at Hedden Plastic Surgery in Birmingham, Alabama. This includes facility, anesthesia and surgeons fees.

If there is some laxity to the tissue and the patient wishes to have smart liposuction with the excision the cost is $1000 more for the added laser cost.

Male Breast Reduction costs $5000 - 10000

Correction of gynecomastia can be an insurance-covered benefit and this is the appropriate place to start. Gynecomastia can be caused by medications, weight, marijuana use, or (in rare cases) tumors that effect your hormonal balance.

Gynecomastia correction surgery is different than breast reduction surgery for women. The end goals are different in that breast reduction surgery aims to create a smaller attractive looking breast that has projection, roundness and appropriate horizontal positioning of the nipple in comparison to the breast fold and breast mound.

Gynecomastia correction aims to create a male-looking breast with significant improvement in the skin envelope and subcutaneous breast tissue.

Typically costs are between $5000-$10000 depending on the techniques used (liposuction, direct excision, combinations of both).

I hope this helps.

Gynecomastia Surgery Cost

There is no set cost for gynecomastia surgery as the cost not only varies from practice to practice, but also within each practice based on the severity of the gynecomastia. The cost for gynecomastia surgery depends on a variety of factors:

1) Extent of the surgery required- more extensive surgery will typically cost more
2) Experience of the surgeon
3) Geographic location
