How Much Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost?
As with most plastic surgical treatments, the total cost of gynecomastia surgery (also known as male breast reduction surgery) will include fees for the surgeon, anesthesia and usage of the surgical facility, whether it’s an office, hospital or outpatient center. In addition to these expenses, the following factors can also impact the overall price of your procedure:
- The general geographical area in which you live and/or the surgery is performed
- The credentials, skill, personal preferences and experience of your plastic surgeon
- The surgical technique employed by your physician (tissue excision, liposuction or both)
- The number of available surgical facilities in your region, as well as the particular facility selected
- Any postoperative medication that may not be fully or partially covered by insurance
- The current state of the economy
Since gynecomastia is considered to be an aesthetic issue in virtually all situations, the male breast reduction procedure is rarely covered by health insurance which means that you will likely be responsible for paying all expenses out-of-pocket. In order to help make treatment more affordable, many plastic surgery offices partner with trusted third-party lending companies to offer various health care financing and payment plan options. Some of the most well-known and reputable medical lenders include CareCredit®, United Medical Credit and myMedicalLoan.com.
For a personalized estimate of what your gynecomastia treatment may cost, you should consult a respected and experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Based on a thorough assessment of your specific needs and goals, he or she will be able to provide a close approximation of the overall cost of your male breast reduction procedure.
