Why Choose A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Choose a board-certified plastic surgeon and be confident you are in the care of a highly-trained surgeon you can trust.
The average cost of gynecomastia surgery is $3,978, according to 2018 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Male breast reduction costs can widely vary. The average fee referenced above is only part of the total cost – it does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses.
A surgeon's fee for gynecomastia surgery will be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used and the geographic office location.
Most health insurance plans do not cover male breast reduction or its complications, but many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.
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.
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.
