How Much Does Male Breast Reduction Surgery Cost?

When it comes to making a decision about which provider or surgeon to select as your chosen preference for your Male Breast Reduction procedure, safety and quality of care are the most important considerations, as well as your chosen Clinic and surgeon’s level of Male Breast Reduction experience procedures. 

Male Breast Reduction at the Cadogan Clinic

Commonly referred to as ‘man boobs’, gynaecomastia is a medical condition that can see males develop excess breast tissue.  

It is a relatively common condition and can be caused by excessive deposits of fat around the chest area. It can also be caused by an imbalance of the hormones testosterone and oestrogen.  

Given the link to hormones, it is often the case that gynaecomastia affects teenage boys and younger men. Often it is the case that younger men will naturally lose their ‘man boobs’ as they age but they may still be left with some level of physical discomfort, as well as self consciousness and a loss of self-confidence.  

Older men may also suffer from the condition either as hormone levels change with age or lifestyle factors such as weight gain and obesity impact the development of the chest area.  

Gynaecomastia can present itself as a slight puffiness around the nipple or in the form of prominent breasts. Male Breast Reduction surgery is a highly effective surgical procedure that targets the breast tissue and breast fat to reduce the size and puffiness of the nipple and chest area.

What Other Factors Influence Man Boob Surgery Cost?

Several other factors may affect man boob surgery costs.  

  • A major factor that will influence man boob surgery cost is the extent of the surgery required. At times liposuction alone is sufficient to remove man boobs, but if the issue is glandular rather than fatty deposits, there is the need to remove the breast disc.  
  • Another factor affecting the costs involved is the level of aftercare provided. The best private clinics will include aftercare and follow-ups as part of the initial fee. Where this is not the case, the additional cost of this needs to be factored in so that you know the true cost of your surgery. 
  • Man boob surgery costs are also affected by the surgeon who performs the procedure. Of course, anyone who carries out this procedure needs to be suitably qualified and should also be registered. However, some surgeons are hugely more experienced than others and some are true specialists in their field. It should be expected that a specialist surgeon will come with an increased cost when compared to others.  

Does Gynaecomastia Surgery Always Involve Liposuction?

Gynaecomastia surgery often involves liposuction, but not always. Traditional liposuction is used to remove excess fat and then contour the shape of the chest.  

Male breast reduction usually takes 1-2 hours and is performed under general anaesthetic. There are times when the cause of male breasts is glandular rather than fatty deposits. When this is the case, as well as liposuction, the breast disc is removed by making a small, discrete incision around the areola.
