Gynaecomastia Surgery (which is also commonly referred to as Male Breast Surgery or Man Boob Surgery), is a surgical cosmetic procedure performed to reduce the size of the male breasts to create a more masculine contour.
At Me Clinic we are often asked how much Gynaecomastia Surgery costs. While various factors can influence the final cost of the procedure, at our Melbourne clinic you can expect Gynaecomastia Surgery to cost between $8,000 and $9,500.
The variation in the final cost of the procedure is due to a range of factors including the amount of fat that needs to be removed, the time required for the procedure and whether the procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthesia.
Needs and requirements can vary significantly from patient to patient, which is why it is important you attend a private consultation with one of our highly skilled and experienced surgeons who will conduct an assessment of your condition and we will provide a personalised quote.
The overall cost of Gynaecomastia Surgery is comprised of a range of components. At Me Clinic, the price we quote you at your initial consultation includes all associated costs.
This is a fee charged by the surgeon for performing the procedure. Surgeon fees are set by the individual doctor performing the surgery and are largely determined by their level of experience, the complexity of the procedure and the level of aftercare that will be required.
Before undergoing any surgical procedure, you need to ensure you are fully informed about what to expect to determine if it is the right procedure for you. Beyond the level of experience of the surgeon alone, it is also important to select a surgeon that you feel comfortable with so you can discuss your expectations and the procedure in an open and honest manner.
In some cases, Gynaecomastia Surgery can be conducted without requiring hospital admission.
In the case where the surgery needs to be performed in a hospital, you will need to pay the relevant theatre and hospital fees. Fees can vary significantly between hospitals; they are usually calculated based on an hourly rate based on the length of time required in theatre.
In some cases, Gynaecomastia Surgery can usually be performed under local anaesthesia, without requiring the services of an Anaesthetist. In the case where a general anaesthetic is required, the services of an Anaesthetist will be required. Anaesthetists do not follow a standard scale of fees, but set their own service charges. The Australian Society of Anaesthetists (ASA) website provides further detail about how anaesthetic service fees are calculated: www.asa.org.au
You will be required to attend a post-operative check-up in the first few days following the procedure to monitor your recovery. At Me Clinic, all post-procedure check-ups are included in the price you are quoted at your initial consultation.
It is our protocol that patients wear a compression garment following the surgery to aid the recovery and achieve optimum results. The cost of the compression garment and medication is included in the procedure fee.
The key factors that influence the total cost of Gynaecomastia Surgery include the volume of fat removed, whether or not the procedure requires the removal of glandular tissue and if it is combined with other procedures.
Gynaecomastia Surgery is typically performed using the liposuction technique, where fat cells are removed from the chest area using a specially designed steel canula and a suction device.
Where liposuction alone will not be able to achieve the desired result, the removal of glandular tissue from behind the nipples may also be required. This adds to the complexity of the procedure; while the procedure, in some cases, can be performed-using only local anaesthesia, in most cases it may require general anaesthetic and a hospital admission which will impact the cost of the procedure accordingly.
It’s not uncommon for patients to also combine Gynaecomastia Surgery with an additional procedure such as Liposuction or Vaser Hi Definition Liposculpture. While an additional procedure will add to the immediate cost of treatment, if you are planning to undergo liposuction treatment in the future, it’s usually more cost-effective to combine everything into a single procedure.

At Me Clinic, Gynaecomastia Surgery costs between $7,000 and $8,900 which includes all associated costs. As the cost of the procedure can vary due to the range of factors discussed here, it’s important you attend a consultation with one of our highly-experienced surgeons to obtain a personalised quote.
During the consultation, you will be able to discuss your individual needs and requirements with the surgeon who will provide an assessment of your condition and provide a quote for the most appropriate treatment option.

Cost can be an important factor when choosing where to undergo Gynaecomastia Surgery.
If you are considering undergoing the procedure at an overseas clinic which is offering the surgery for a budget price, we strongly recommend you attend a consultation with a Me Clinic surgeon who can discuss with you the various risks associated with overseas surgery.
You may not have the same assurance of safety and access to the same level of post-surgical care as if you underwent the procedure in Australia, if you experience any complications during or following the procedure, it’s also highly unlikely that your travel insurance would cover the cost of any required medical treatment or medical evacuation.
