Gynecomastia Surgery – Prices

Enlargement of the breast tissue in men is called gynecomastia. Gynecomastia surgery is an effective solution for reducing male breasts, also known as ‘man boobs’.

The best technique for reducing the prominence of your chest area depends on:

  • The amount of excess breast tissue you have
  • The amount of extra skin you have on your chest

Your surgeon will be able to advise you on which of the following techniques would be best for you:

Gynecomastia – Excision or Liposuction from £5,620

Gynecomastia – Full Male Breast Reduction from £8,820

It is important to note that these are guide prices as prices can vary dependent on your surgeon and the technique used. A more accurate price can be given at your consultation, to reflect your individual needs.

If you think you might have gynecomastia and would like to reduce the size of your chest, please complete our contact form or call us to book your free consultation.

The cost of gynecomastia surgery is a worrying factor for many men considering treatment for their enlarged male breasts. If your condition is particularly severe and having a significant effect on your standard of living, you may be eligible for NHS gynecomastia treatment. However, with today’s economy, such funding is increasingly limited so private gynecomastia surgery is becoming common.

Can I get NHS Gynecomastia surgery?

Although gynecomastia is not life-threatening, it can have a significant effect on a person’s quality of life. Therefore, previously, people with gynecomastia were treated by the NHS. However, owing to recent budget cuts, there is now more restriction on this type of treatment and in many areas of the UK non-life threatening conditions are no longer treated by the NHS.

Will Gynecomastia NHS treatment be available in your region?

The restrictions vary considerably between different health authorities. We would advise you to visit your GP, who will be able to put your case before the appropriate NHS board. They will then decide if you can receive treatment. In some regions, particularly if you have the support of your GP, gynecomastia is still available on the NHS.

If you are unfortunate enough to find that the NHS does not provide gynecomastia treatment in your area, your other option is to consult a private surgeon.

What are the advantages of private Gynecomastia surgery?

Consulting a private surgeon does have advantages:

  • You will be seen by an individual surgeon who will discuss your concerns with you and outline the options for treating your gynecomastia
  • The same surgeon will perform the operation, giving you good continuity of care which is sometimes not available on the NHS
  • You will also have more ability to select the time of surgery that fits in with your lifestyle

What elements make up the overall cost of Gynecomastia surgery?

As a general rule gynecomastia surgery costs are split into:

  • The surgeon
  • The anaesthetist (if having excisional surgery)
  • The hospital facility

It is worth clarifying the exact costs of each element of your surgery prior to your operation and also enquiring whether your male breast reduction surgery costs do include the potential for overnight stay following your surgery, all medication, follow up appointments and any further surgery that might be required.
