How Is Male Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?

Dr. Dax knows his patients want their bodies to look so natural that nobody else will suspect they have undergone plastic surgery. During his years of intensive medical training and experience, he honed his command of both plastic and reconstructive surgery, allowing him to sculpt your upper body to suit your individual desires while leaving minimal scarring.

Dr. Dax uses liposuction for almost all of his gynecomastia patients, but in some cases he surgically removes excess skin. Liposuction not only allows him to remove dense breast tissue but can also help tighten the overlying skin for a toned appearance.

How Much Does Male Breast Reduction Surgery Cost?

The cost of male breast reduction surgery is something most patients consider before choosing a plastic surgeon. The cost will vary based on several factors, including the geographic location of the practice, the surgeon’s training and experience, and the techniques used during the procedure.

The cost of the procedure, however, shouldn’t be the primary consideration for people considering male breast reduction. It’s also important to know what’s specifically included when a practice provides a price quote. The total cost often includes:

  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Prescription medications
  • Medical tests

Financing the surgery helps many patients pay for cosmetic procedures that aren’t covered by health insurance. Coastal Plastic Surgery partners with CareCredit® for qualified patients who wish to finance their procedures.

How Long Is Recovery After Male Breast Reduction?

Because of Dr. Dax’s highly developed breast-reduction techniques, your gynecomastia procedure will take place on an outpatient basis. You will need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks following the procedure to assure proper healing, support your new chest and maximize your comfort during recovery.

The exact length and nature of your recovery, including the interval for follow-up appointments, will depend on the extent of your surgery. Dr. Dax will discuss the individual details of your recovery during your consultation; he will be available to answer any questions you may have during your downtime and offer his assistance to meet all your needs.
