What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition where men and boys have abnormally large breasts. This affects large portions of the male population, with many men having one or both breasts enlarged by fatty tissues. Numerous factors can contribute to enlarged breasts in men, including excess skin, swollen breast glands, hormonal imbalances, and so on. Most children with this condition will see it resolved as they approach adulthood. It’s highly common for teenagers to experience it while going through puberty, but the male hormones will kick in and balance things out.
Much like other breast reduction surgeries, gynecomastia surgery begins with small incisions around the breast area. The excess fat and glandular tissue will be removed, and the incisions stitched back up. The result is a much firmer and more masculine chest.
How Much Does it Cost to Treat?
It’s impossible to provide a direct quote for this treatment as it varies based on lots of factors. The latest research suggests the average cost is around $4,000 – though this doesn’t take into account extra expenses like anesthesia, medication prescriptions, facility costs, tests, post-surgery care, etc.
All of these things combine to set the overall price for gynecomastia surgery. However, the most significant cost factor is the surgeon you choose. Experienced surgeons may charge more than inexperienced ones, but you can expect to receive far better treatment with more precise results. It’s never advised to opt for the cheapest treatment around! Instead, look for qualified and experienced surgeons – like Dr. Sozer and Dr. Phillips.
The obvious benefit is that you are no longer left with enlarged breasts. For lots of men, this is a source of deep self-consciousness that might have plagued you since childhood. You could feel too embarrassed to take your top off around other people, or you might wear very loose clothing to conceal your enlarged breasts. This surgery can give you a new lease of life by helping you feel more confident in yourself. You will be able to go to the beach with your top off and stare back at yourself in the mirror without feeling self-conscious.
Am I a Candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?
This surgery is only suitable for men who suffer from gynecomastia. Therefore, the first step is consulting with a qualified surgeon to assess if you suffer from this condition or not. If you have had this problem for more than two years, you will be an ideal candidate for the surgery. It will typically resolve itself within that time period, so any unresolved cases will benefit from this surgical procedure.
If you worry about the appearance of your breasts, you will also be a good candidate – particularly if it impacts your mental health. Gynecomastia surgery is most effective when combined with liposuction, making it an excellent option if you have extra fatty tissue around your breasts as well.
“I absolutely love getting treatments done here. The prices and friendly staff are unbeatable.. thank you for always making me at home.” *
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
