How Much Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost?

Men of all ages can be afflicted by gynecomastia no matter what their weight, BMI, or lifestyle might be. For men of all ages, gynecomastia can be emasculating and embarrassing and can seem irreversible. However, with the right protocols and techniques, experts like Dr. Miguel Delgado can reverse the effects of gynecomastia no matter the extent of the condition. However, when it comes to the cost of corrective male breast reduction, some procedures cost more than others. This means that it pays to get the best results possible from your gynecomastia surgeon.

What is Gynecomastia Surgery?

Men both young and old might experience abnormal growth in their chest area – the breasts – due to several factors, including hormone fluctuations, weight gain, substance use (or abuse), and medication use. Gynecomastia surgery seeks to correct the abnormal growth of breast tissue in men through a few standard minimally invasive surgery procedures.

The two main operative procedures used to reduce enlarged male breasts are liposuction and excisional surgery. Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that exclusively removes fat tissue from the chest to flatten and tighten the male breast. However, many other gynecomastia surgery techniques involve additional incisions to also remove glandular tissue that is more fibrous in nature and the product of long-term hormonal changes that cannot be addressed with liposuction alone. This procedure involves small incisions around the nipple and other areas of the chest to restore a flat, contoured, shapely, and masculine appearance to the chest upon recovery.

Why is Gynecomastia Surgery Expensive?

Gynecomastia surgery for many people tends to be expensive because it’s customized to the person’s anatomy. Each patient requires different types of treatment to achieve a natural-looking result, meaning that the “cheapest” solution available isn’t right for everyone looking for a flatter chest through liposuction or gynecomastia surgery.

Even with just liposuction, not everyone needs the same amount or fat removed or the same type of technique to achieve a healthy-looking body contour. This results in different surgical plans and therefore different costs from surgery. Dr. Delgado will always make sure your gynecomastia plan is affordable through personal consultations and flexible financing plans available at our office.
