Average Cost of Gynecomastia Surgery

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of gynecomastia surgery is $4,123. However, this figure only refers to a part of the total price. It doesn’t include the cost of anesthetics, renting operating facilities, medical tests, or post-surgical garments. Ultimately, therefore, you may have to pay more.

Factors that Influence Final Pricing

Multiple factors can affect the final price of gynecomastia surgery. One is the complexity of the operation. Some patients only require fat removal. Others need a combination of both fat and breast tissue removal. The more difficult the operation, the higher the surgeon’s fee and, therefore, the overall price you’ll pay.

The location of the surgery also affects the price. Surgeries in coastal areas tend to cost more than those inland or in rural areas because of higher wages.

The amount you pay will also vary according to the experience of the surgeon. Those with more experience (or who specialize in gynecomastia surgeries) are liable to charge more.

Benefits of Gynecomastia Surgery

The benefits of gynecomastia surgery from Dr. Tenley Lawton are considerable. They include:

  • A more masculine figure: Gynecomastia removes breast tissue to create a more chiseled physique, helping you both look and feel more masculine.
  • Improved self-confidence: Do you frequently find yourself hiding away, unwilling to show off your physique? If so, then gynecomastia surgery could help. By dealing with gynecomastia, you can improve many areas of your life, from the sports you play to your romantic encounters.
  • Less back pain: Excessive weight on the chest can lead to chronic upper back pain and cause the spine to become rounded. Gynecomastia removes this excess weight, helping to restore physiological normality to your body. Following the procedure, back problems may subside and your posture may improve.
  • Easier physical activity: It is well known that large breasts can make things like running and jumping uncomfortable for women. Interestingly, though, the same applies to men. When you have a lot of loose weight at the front of your body, physical activities can become painful, wrecking your enjoyment of exercise. Gynecomastia surgery eliminates tissue you don’t need, letting you pursue whatever physical activity you want.

Am I a Candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?

If you have enlarged breasts and would them to be smaller, then gynecomastia surgery might be an option for you. Please note that gynecomastia surgery is only suitable for patients who cannot correct their condition through other means. It is usually seen as a last resort when traditional treatments fail.

Patients opting for the procedure should have a positive outlook and realistic expectation for what it can achieve. They should also be able to maintain a stable weight following surgery to maximize how long results last.

Dr. Lawton is a wonderful surgeon. I received a breast augmentation from her with Allergans new shaped 410 implants and I LOVE my results. They look very natural and there was barely any downtime. I was back to work four days later and no one could even tell. The staff is great but mostly I loved the time Dr. Lawton spent with me. I felt that as a woman she truly understood what I wanted. I would definitely refer her to friends and family.

MG, Happy Patient
