Gynecomastia is a common endocrine disorder in which there is a benign enlargement of breast tissue in males. It is very common in adolescence and again later in life and has been reported in up to 70% of males at some point during puberty. Often it will resolve, but persistence can be physically deforming and cause significant psychological stress.
Fortunately, gynecomastia is easily treatable with both liposuction and excisional techniques and seldom recurs.
The approximate cost of male breast reduction or gynecomastia ranges from $5,600 to $7,600. This cost includes surgeon, operating room, and anesthesia, and is sometimes covered by medical insurance.
