What is the typical cost range for gynecomastia reduction

Q:

I lost about 70 lbs and have kept it off for a year, but my "moobs" won't go away. What is a typical cost range for gynecomastia reduction (both moobs) in the Houston area? Also, how long typically would it be before I could return to work in an office setting?

A:

It is impossible to provide you with a concise quote without examining you. Typical male reduction for gynecomastia costs 3000.00-6000.00 for the professional fee. Then 1-2000.00 for anesthesia fees and finally 1-2000.00 for a facility fee. The reason for the range is because the precise procedure to be done may be relatively straightforward to complex requiring breast skin, fat and breast removal and repositioning of the nipple areolar complex..

A:

Having lost 70 lb one need to decide whether you only need a gynecomastia surgery or a breast reduction and skin and possible fat reduction  to get the best outcome. Each have a different cost.

Consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for thorough examination and discussion of what procedure is needed to achieve the best results for you. The cost will differ from procedure to another and from one area of the country to another.

A:

Congratulations for losing so much weight.  The enlarged chest can be a real issue and surgery may be the only solution.  The surgery may or may not involved skin excision.  You will require an exam by a board certified plastic surgeon to determine the best procedure.  I perform a two stage technique which limits the scar to around the areola, but depends on the amount of skin laxity, contraction qualities of the skin and your age.  Good Luck.
