Factors that affect Gynecomastia Surgery cost in India
Plastic Surgeon's Fees
An important expense when it comes to your Gynecomastia Surgery is your plastic surgeon's fees. IndiCure hand-picks highly experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering natural-looking results. Although the price tag may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, you can be assured that you are in safe and skilled hands when you choose plastic surgery in India with IndiCure.
Type of Gynecomastia Surgery
Depending on one's needs, men of all ages can benefit from two types of gynecomastia surgical procedures. For example, liposuction can be an effective option for a few, while others may need the gland removal surgery with or without liposuction for best results. IndiCure recommends you to explore the surgical options by consulting our expert plastic surgeons.
Another important factor that determines the cost of Gynecomastia Surgery in India is the anesthesia cost- whether the surgery is done in GA or local anesthesia. Our team members at the hospitals will guide you with the anesthesia costs that are usually billed on an hourly basis, but you would be offered a package that is all inclusive, and that too at much discounted prices.
Having your Gynecomastia Surgery in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility in India also affects the initial quote. But IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be all inclusive and affordable.
The surgery-related expenses include the pre- and post-surgical expenses. The pre-surgical expenses are associated with the candidacy and the medical history of the patient. This includes the routine medical exams and tests to ensure you're a good fit for gynecomastia surgery. Post-surgical expenses can include prescription medications, post-surgery compression garments, and follow-up consultations.
We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.
Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the surgeon.

What is Gynecomastia Surgery ?
Gynecomastia or Male breast or "woman-like breasts," is a very common physical abnormality that occurs in men and sometimes it is also linked with obesity. Physically, it is just a flaw seen in the shape and appearance of the chest of average sized men. This can be simply treated with a procedure named gynecomastia surgery – also called breast reduction for men or commonly known as man boobs correction surgery.
It could be very embarrassing for men suffering from this condition, and could be linked to obesity, excessive medication, hormonal imbalance or as a lifestyle disorder.
Gynecomastia can be triggered by reduction in testosterone levels compared to oestrogen. This hormone imbalance can be caused by:
Hormone changes occurring naturally with ageing and because of excessive weight
Certain medications like drugs used for treatment of prostate enlargement (anti-androgens), cancer treatment, AIDS medication, anti-anxiety drugs, antibiotics, cardiac medication like digoxin etc.
Alcohol consumption and other recreational drugs
Certain medical conditions like hypogonadism, hyperthyroidism, kidney and liver failures
Malnutrition can also lead to hormone imbalance and gynecomastia
Gynecomastia Surgery in India
Man boobs or female-like breasts can be a cause of great embarrassment for men in day-to-day life. A flabby chest is no man's friend, especially when it comes to wearing a T-shirt. But, don't be sad. Smile because there is a fix! No, it's not a bra, it's Gynecomastia Surgery! It is much easier to save yourself from the embarrassment by choosing gynecomastia surgery in India.
To get rid of man boobs, a large number of people travel abroad for affordable yet quality gynecomastia surgery. India is one of the leading destinations that provide gynecomastia surgery at state of the art hospitals and clinics at affordable prices. Every year, hundreds of thousands medical tourists travel abroad to avail quality gynecomastia surgery in India. Be it the cost of the treatment or expertise of surgeons or latest technology available in the hospitals, India has made a significant mark in providing the best of plastic surgery.
Gynecomastia is not a serious medical condition but the major disadvantage of having enlarged breasts is the embarrassment that negatively affects the health of an individual. Although many exercises are there to reduce gynecomastia such as chest press exercises or incline cable fly, these exercises put a lot of load on the chest when it comes to burn off excess chest fat. Gynecomastia surgery or male breast reduction surgery is the procedure of choice when other non surgical treatments have failed to lose excess bulge from the chest.
General Anesthesia or Local with IV Sedation
Daycare or 1 Day
Am I a good Candidate?
If you have abnormal amounts of fatty tissue on your chest, and are uncomfortable with it, you are a good candidate for the gynecomastia surgery. You should be 18 or above, physically healthy and emotionally stable and should have realistic expectations from the procedure.
Types of Gynecomastia Surgery
Although there are other options to reduce gynecomastia such as exercise and medications, gynecomastia surgery or male breast reduction surgery is the procedure of choice when other non surgical treatments have failed to lose excess bulge from the chest.
It is the gold standard for gynecomastia treatment. Gynecomastia Surgery has two options:
Liposuction: It is a simple procedure to remove fat from the breast. This method does not leave much scarring since it requires a very small incision.
Mastectomy: A surgery to remove breast gland tissue. This method is performed alongside the liposuction technique since liposuction is unable to remove the mammary tissue development.
How is Gynecomastia Surgery done?
The surgeon makes incisions at the appropriate places for the fat/ tissue to be removed.
Empty tubes are placed in the opened incisions which melt the excess fat tissue. The fat is then sucked and ejected.
If glandular tissue/ excess skin also needs to be reduced, bigger incisions are given, skin excised and incisions are closed with sutures.
What is the Recovery after Gynecomastia Surgery like?
Recovery after male breast reduction surgery is fairly quick. You are not supposed to take up activities that involve a lot of physical effort for a few days after the procedure. You can resume routine activities within three to seven days and sedentary work in about a week to ten days. Strenuous work should be avoided for at least four to six weeks. Heavy physical activity and exercising should be avoided for at least 6 to 8 weeks.
What Results Can I Expect from Gynecomastia Surgery?
Most men are pleased with the results achieved through the surgical correction. The results of the man boobs surgery are permanent, giving you a flat, firm and more masculine-looking chest.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, if done by a qualified and skilled plastic surgeon, gynecomastia surgery is absolutely safe. It does have risks associated with it like any other surgical procedure, but an experienced surgeon minimizes the risk by careful patient selection, choosing the right technique and taking all precautions during and after the procedure.
The surgery is done under anesthesia and the pain or discomfort is very mild and minimal. Recovery after gynecomastia surgery is usually quite gentle. Your surgeon would advise you medication for pain to make you feel comfortable.
It usually does not, unless you gain a lot of weight after the procedure. Maintain a healthy lifestyle and you can keep man boobs at bay.
However, it is important to investigate the reason for gynecomastia in the first place. If it is because of hormonal issues or some other reason, it is best to treat that before you undergo the surgery, so that you say goodbye to man boobs for good.
Usually, the procedure involves liposuction of the excess fat, and if the gland is not too hard, it is also broken by the liposuction machine and sucked out. The gland is alternatively surgically removed through an incision in the margin of the nipple-areolar complex and/or skin excision in very large male breasts.

We have never received such wonderful hospitality and always attending to our needs. We would both certainly recommend Indicure for any treatments and/or surgeries. We have been utterly amazed at what India has to offer and will definitely visit again.

Thank you IniCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in selling up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare team. Your Professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated my Dad and we are so grateful for that.
Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.

The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
