How Much Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost?

Are you struggling to get rid of your “man boobs”, despite getting plenty of exercises and eating well?

Blame genetics. Men who are afflicted by fatty breast tissue (more formally known as gynecomastia) are genetically prone to this condition, meaning that diet and exercise alone may not be enough to whittle them down. That’s why gynecomastia surgery – a cosmetic procedure that manually removes fatty breast tissue – may be the best option to get rid of man boobs.

Let’s take a closer look at how much gynecomastia surgery costs, including factors that may affect the price of your surgery.

Average Cost of Gynecomastia Surgery

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of gynecomastia surgery is $3,978. This cost uses data from 2018, so expect the cost of gynecomastia surgery to be higher by a few hundred dollars this year.

Keep in mind that this cost estimate does not include essential surgical fees, like:

  • General anesthesia
  • Surgical center fees
  • Prescription medications

The final cost of your gynecomastia surgery may also be influenced by your plastic surgeon’s experience levels, the cost-of-living index in your region, the amount of fat that may need to be removed from your chest region, and whether or not a breast lift may be required to get the best final result.

Can Health Insurance Cover My Gynecomastia Surgery?

Most health insurance companies consider gynecomastia surgery to be elective, meaning it’s not an essential part of health care. For that reason, you may need to cover all the costs of your gynecomastia surgery.

It’s worth noting that every insurance policy is different, so there are some circumstances where your surgery may be partly or totally covered by health insurance. For example, if your doctor can show that you experience chronic and dangerous skin infections as a result of your breast size, your policy may cover some or all of your surgical costs.
