What is the Cost of Gynecomastia Surgery?
When considering the cost of gynecomastia surgery there are several things to consider. The first consideration is the doctor’s experience. It is important to always select a board-certified plastic surgeon to perform this procedure and the fees for these surgeons are based on their years of expertise. Another consideration is the geographical location of the doctor’s practice. Because the cost of living varies around the country, some areas have a generally lower cost, while other very highly populated areas of the country will have an overall higher cost. The third and most important consideration is the type of procedure that you have done. Liposuction alone will cost less than the more advanced surgical procedure of actual breast tissue removal.
The fees that you will be paying typically include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Hospital or surgical facility fees
- Medical tests
- Post-surgical compression garments
- Prescriptions for post-surgical care
- Surgeon’s fee
With all of this being said, the average cost of gynecomastia surgery generally begins around $3500 and can go upward based on the extent of your treatment. Because most insurance companies do not cover this cosmetic procedure, the responsibility for the bill falls mainly on the patient. The good news is that most providers will offer payment plans and financing options to their patients to help them get the care that they need. The very best way to discover the type of treatment that you need and the cost of your treatment is by scheduling a consultation with the staff at Dermatology and Plastic Surgery or Arizona. They will gladly customize a treatment plan for you and provide you with the price and payment options.
