Gynecomastia is a condition in which accumulations of tissue or excess fat in the chest of males produces the appearance of feminine breasts. Sometimes brought about by hormonal changes, gynecomastia is an emasculating condition that is not always responsive to diet and exercise.
An effective way to deal with gynecomastia is male breast reduction, a procedure during which excess fat or glandular tissue can be removed from the chest. Dr. Chatson utilizes advanced technology to permanently eliminate male breasts and restore a more defined, toned, and masculine physique.
Does gynecomastia go away?
When a result of temporary hormonal changes or brought about by medication use, gynecomastia may go away on its own. This is not always the case, however.
Diet, exercise, and other lifestyle changes may help reduce male breast tissue and may even see a complete elimination of the issue, but many men find these solutions fall short.
If diet and exercise have failed to net the results you demand, Dr. Chatson can assess your condition, discuss treatment options, and help you determine if male breast reduction is the best solution.
How is male breast reduction performed?
Dr. Chatson uses SAFELipo™, a revolutionary liposuction technique that minimizes downtime while maximizing results. SAFELipo is the only liposuction option with fat equalization, a process that helps ensure a healthy, smooth, and consistently firm appearance throughout the chest.
If glandular tissue is present, excision may be necessary to produce ideal definition. During your consultation at our Massachusetts or New Hampshire office, Dr. Chatson will determine the most effective solution for your condition.
How much does male breast reduction cost?
The cost of male breast reduction depends on the technique used, the amount of tissue or fat being removed, and other factors that can allow costs to vary from patient to patient. Nationally, the average cost of male breast reduction is around $4,000.
Dr. Chatson understands how important it is to feel confident in your appearance. Self-confidence improves job prospects, encourages social interaction, and can even act as an impetus to leading a healthy and active lifestyle. To help men suffering from gynecomastia accomplish this, Dr. Chatson offers a number of financing options. If you are interested in male breast reduction but are concerned about costs, our patient coordinator will be happy to discuss all of your financing options during your initial consultation.
How much does male breast reduction cost with insurance?
Gynecomastia may be related to certain medical conditions. It may also, like all excessive fat accumulations, contribute to health issues and increase risks for various deadly diseases. However, male breast reduction is largely considered an elective procedure and is not typically covered by insurance. You can find out if your insurance carrier will cover the cost of male breast reduction by talking to your plan administrator.
