What does the gynecomastia surgery cost? Gynecomastia surgery cost varies, depending on the amount of skin, excess fat, and glandular tissue that a patient has. Depending on the variation and intensity of the above listed, liposuction, direct excision, or both may be necessary, affecting the gynecomastia surgery cost.
There are various liposuction techniques that may be recommended and utilized by your surgeon for your case. The most appropriate technique and surgical plan for your case will be defined prior to your procedure, discussing surgery cost, appropriate plan, and desired results.
On one end, for patients that have minimal glandular tissue and sagging, but excess fat, liposuction alone may be suitable. In the cases of gynecomastia where excess fatty tissue is the primary source of the condition, liposuction modalities alone may be utilized.
For the patients that liposuction alone is sufficient for, a small incision at the edge of the areolar with less than ½ a cm in length will allow access for a hollow tube, inserted to break down and remove the excess fat.
After the excess fat is controllingly loosened, vacuum suction is used to remove the fat from the body. A bit more infrequently, patients with severe breast skin redundancy require removal of the gland and the taking out of the fat, en-bloc resection of the breast skin.
If you have larger male breasts and are interested in breast reduction to remove the excess fat, tissue, and skin, Dr. Mowlavi at the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute in Laguna Beach, California can help to achieve a male breast size proportionate to your body.
Depending on the personalized assessment provided by a skilled surgeon, as well as the anesthesia used– general or local– gynecomastia surgery pricing typically ranges from $6,000 to $7,500.
Gynecomastia surgery costs can widely vary, although the above-mentioned cost includes the cost of anesthesia, operating room facilities, and other related expenses. Depending on if the surgical plan is more comprehensive, including high definition liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, back, or popularly chest contouring, with the desired gynecomastia surgery, than pricing may elevate to a pricing range of $18,000-$38,000.
These fees referenced just before also includes the operating room facilities fee, anesthesia, and other related expenses. A plastic surgeon’s fee for gynecomastia surgery will also be based on his or her experience, their office location, as well as the procedures planned on having done.
