What Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost?
While the cost of each surgery varies depending on the patient’s needs, the average male breast reduction surgery can cost between $8,500 and $10,000. These numbers can seem daunting to men considering having the surgery, however it is important to remember the extreme improvement in quality of life that can be achieved as a result. Gynecomastia surgery can be life changing, providing men suffering from the condition with more confidence and less social anxiety and stress. When considering these numbers it is also important to remember that Dr. Delgado’s fees reflect his extensive expertise in the field, as well as that of his accompanying staff.
The cost of the surgery breaks down to two main factors: the severity of your condition, meaning the amount of excess glandular fat tissue, and the results you are looking to achieve. The lower estimated cost usually refers to less complicated cases. On the other hand, a higher estimated surgery cost may include more extensive work like liposuction from the underarm area and the back region. Additional fees might include further work that needs to be done, such as a breast lift or a delayed stage-two breast lift. This tends to occur in cases with more severe skin issues. Furthermore, this average price range includes the surgery fee, the cost of anesthesia, garments and the surgery center fees.
