Breast Reduction Costs

Breast Reduction Costs

Both women and men elect to undergo breast reduction surgery, whether to alleviate physical discomfort, improve appearance, or both. Many women choose to eliminate back and chest pain by slimming their bust lines. Many men experiencing gynecomastia, or enlarged or over-developed breasts due to hormones, heredity or disease, elect to have their chest size reduced. The cost of breast reduction or gynecomastia surgery varies widely, based on a number of factors.

First, surgeon’s fees are always a variable. A surgeon with a long track history of success will certainly charge more than a skilled professional who has not been practicing medicine for as long. Regional differences will greatly impact your surgeon’s fees, as well. A top-notch surgeon may easily charge more for his services in Los Angeles than he would in Denver or Cleveland.

Beyond the surgeon’s fees, there are a number of other potential breast reduction costs that must be considered. Anesthesia, hospital or other facility costs, medication, and medical tests will all impact the overall cost of gynecomastia or breast reduction surgeries. A full gynecomastia operation, with all fees considered, averages anywhere from $3300 to $6000. For women, the cost of breast reduction surgery falls around $5600, based on national averages tabulated in 2009 by the ASAPS. In some instances in which the patient’s health is damaged or endangered by the size of their breasts, insurance may cover some or all of the costs of the breast reduction.

The most important factor to consider when opting for breast reduction or gynecomastia procedure is your surgeon. Never sacrifice quality for cost when dealing with your health. It is important to select a board-certified surgeon with a proven track record of success in breast reduction procedures. Many plastic surgeons will offer payment plans for their patients. If you are considering breast reduction surgery, find out more about your options by scheduling a consultation with a breast reduction surgeon or gynecomastia surgeon in your area.
