Gynecomastia is a very embarrassing problem and it is also called man boobs. This problem can affect a sexual and social life of a young man and provide grave issues and troubles. In most cases of gynecomastia among adolescents, this problem goes away, but there are also cases in which it remains. The problem can also be developed in later stages of the life, or it can stick with a person from the adolescent period of life. If you find yourself in this situation, you will want to eliminate this problem and this can only be done with the help of the surgery. We will talk about the costs of this surgery, which are variable, but usually in the region between 3,500 and 4,000 dollars.
Choosing the doctor
The first factor that determines the cost of this surgery is a doctor. The cost of the surgery will vary according to the experience of the plastic surgeon and his or her prestige. Prepare yourself to some high fees if you choose a highly skillful and experienced plastic surgeon, whereas if you choose a plastic surgeon low on experience, you will pay significantly less. This is normal since experience means quality and better results, although it is not a rule. Fee of the surgeon is not a sole criterion for quality service. Before you make a choice, find as much information on available surgeons as you can, since this will help you a lot.
This also affects the cost of gynecomastia surgery. Big areas like California and Orange County have surgeons who will charge more for their services, when compared to the price of the same surgery in smaller areas and towns. Even oversea regions have lower costs for this surgery. Quality may be an issue since it may be on lower level in these areas. But do not think that all of them are worse than the ones in the US because some of them are even better. If you cannot pay for the surgery in the US, go oversea but know that you may get a low quality service at the end.
Severity of the gynecomastia
This is the most important factor associated with the gynecomastia surgery. Mild problems that require liposuction will cost less, more precisely somewhere in the region from the 3,000-4,000$. But in more serious cases, when breast tissue has to be excised, you may even have to pay 10,000$. Complexity of the problem will increase the cost of the surgery because more work will have to be done in order to eliminate the problem. When we take all factors into consideration, the average cost of the surgery is 3,500$. But know that 10,000$ may be needed if you have a severe problem.
