About Gynecomastia and the Costs for Surgery

Several common factors can cause gynecomastia including excessive levels of #estrogen, natural #hormone changes, use of recreational drugs or alcohol, medications and their associated side effects, and, various health conditions. Also, there are different types of #gynecomastia. 

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons the average #cost of #gynecomastia surgery can vary widely. #Surgery quotes should include the procedure itself, operating room facilities, anesthesia fees, surgeon’s fees, medical tests, post-surgery garments, prescription medication and other related costs. Most plastic surgery offices offer convenient finance plans that allow patients to pay a low monthly payment. 
Costs will also vary with geographic location. Estimated costs can be found here on RealSelf.com, PlasticSurgery.org or Surgery.org.

About How Much Would It Cost to Have a Fat Transfer to One of my Pecs Alone? How Much with Areola Reduction Surgery?

Thanks for the posted photos. Very hard to give exact fee quotes but a range from $4,000 to $5,000 is a good one.

Fat Grafting For Nipple Indentation

Secondary correction of indented nipples after gynecomastia surgery can be improved with fat transfer. You do have to have enough fat to harvest which can be challenging in very thin or athletic individuals. The cost of that surgery is in the $2,000 to $3,000 range. Your areolas can be made smaller but at the trade-off of a scar around them and the risk of visible scar widening. That risk is higher in men who have tight chest skin, such as yourself

Liposuction of breasts- fat transfer

your problem can be improved with fat transfer.  There is some scar tissue under the skin that over time remodels and puckers the skin in.  I am sure this was not the way the surgeon left it at the time of surgery,  but the human body is a dynamic thing and skin and subcutaneous fat is unpredictable.  See our website  bostonbreastcenter.com  for examples of breast augmentation and reconstruction using natural fat.
