Male Breast Reduction Cost
There are several factors that may influence the cost of male breast reduction, such as the extent of treatment, supplemental procedures, and anesthesia. This procedure is an investment in your appearance that can provide a better quality of life and improved confidence. After gathering information about your goals and needs, Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau can explain male breast reduction cost during a consultation at their Halifax, NS, practice.
Revision surgery is often more costly than an initial surgery. Therefore, by choosing an excellent surgeon, you are far less likely to need a revision surgery, saving you considerable expense in the long run.
The cost of virtually every procedure differs according to a number of factors. The most important factor is your surgeon's experience, reputation, and credentials. In general, a more experienced surgeon will charge a higher fee than a less experienced surgeon. However, investing in an experienced surgeon can dramatically reduce risks and increase the likelihood of satisfying results. It is also important to understand that revision surgery is often more costly than an initial surgery. Therefore, by choosing an excellent surgeon, you are far less likely to need a revision surgery, saving you considerable expense in the long run.
Other important cost factors include:
- Liposuction: Liposuction is often used to assist the surgeon in removing excess fat and tissue, and will increase the overall cost of surgery.
- Compression garments: Depending on the complexity of your surgery, your surgeon may require you to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling and bruising.
- Amount and type of anesthesia: This factor relates directly to the extent of your surgery. The longer you require anesthesia, the higher the cost. Meanwhile, it costs more to have anesthesia administered by an anesthesiologist than a nurse anesthetist.
- Medications: Any medication required after surgery will add to the cost of surgery.
During your initial consultation with your board-certified surgeon, we will provide an estimate of your treatment costs. We will also explain the financing options we offer to help place your goals within reach.
