- How much does gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction) cost in Chicago, Illinois?
When you have decided to look into gynecomastia treatment options, you are likely considering the following: the experience of your surgeon, past patient reviews, before and after photos, the location of the surgery center, and finally what gynecomastia surgery is going to cost you.
According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of male breast reduction surgery in 2019 is $4231 with costs ranging widely based on many factors. Keep in mind this is for the surgeon’s fee, and does not include or take into other necessary fees such as the operating room/facility fee, anesthesia fee, medication, post-surgical garments, and transportation costs.
You may find that the cost of gynecomastia treatment will vary greatly in Illinois and nationally with costs ranging anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000! Factors that impact gynecomastia surgery costs could include:
- Your surgeon’s experience. Surgeons who perform many gynecomastia procedures may charge more than a surgeon who just started performing them.
- Your Location. Getting your surgery done in New York may be a lot higher than getting your surgery done in Chicago, Illinois. If you are curious about pricing in your area, you can sometimes find this information on realself.com, an online community where real members and patients provide information about their personal experiences including what they may have paid for the procedure at a specific practice.
- Your diagnosis and evaluation. Gynecomastia prices are highly individualized because everyone’s needs are unique. Pricing can depend on what Grade you have. Your surgeon will evaluate you and provide a recommendation.
Grade 1 (puffy nipple syndrome): $4495 – $5,995
Grade 2: $5995 – $6995
Grade 3: $6995 – $7995
Grade 4 and higher: $7995 – $10,995
Use this pricing information as a guide. Be very careful about offers that seem too good to be true! If the cost quoted is extremely low, you may get hit with additional fees or the surgeon may not be as experienced in the procedure. Always ask what all is included in your estimate to avoid costly surprises.

Does insurance cover gynecomastia surgery?
Many patients ask if insurance will cover their procedure. Although this is not ideal, most insurances consider gyno surgery an elective procedure and typically will not cover the cost of treatment for gynecomastia. Check with your individual insurance provider, we have known some patients to submit a claim to their insurance and we are happy to provide you with necessary documentation if you would like to submit a claim through your insurance.

No Obligation, Complimentary Consultation at XSculpt
Consultations are very common and necessary at every cosmetic surgery practice in order to discuss your body goals and fully evaluate your case. We see patients from all over and understand that it may not be very convenient to schedule an in-person consultation right away so we do offer free online consultations for those that are interested. Once you submit your photos and questions, an XSculpt surgeon will evaluate your case and reply back with a recommendation. If you decide you would like to move forward you will need to schedule an in-person evaluation which is also free. A consultation typically takes 45 minutes to 1 hour. You will meet with both the patient coordinator and your surgeon in person. This is required for all patients who are serious about booking a procedure with us. The surgeon will go over what you can expect before, during, and after the surgery such as the procedure itself, what your recovery process is, and what final result you can expect. The patient coordinator will provide you with a quote for the cost of the procedure and arrange a date for your surgery should you decide to proceed.
