Gynecomastia Surgery

Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Gynecomastia surgery is the surgical correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men.

Gynecomastia surgery cost

The average cost of gynecomastia surgery is $3,525, according to 2016 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Gynecomastia surgery costs can vary widely. The average cost referenced above does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.

A surgeon's cost may be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used, and the geographic location of the office.

Many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans for male breast reduction, so be sure to ask.

Gynecomastia surgery costs may include:

  • Anesthesia fees
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Medical tests
  • Post-surgery garments
  • Prescriptions for medication
  • Surgeon's fee

Your satisfaction involves more than a fee. When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for gynecomastia surgery, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.

Gynecomastia Surgery and Health Insurance

In most cases, correction of gynecomastia is not eligible for insurance coverage. However, each insurance policy varies greatly. Carefully review your policy to determine coverage.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has published a position paper for physicians and insurers defining the recommended criteria for reconstructive cases of gynecomastia. Ask your physician for a copy of this document to submit to your insurer.
