While estimating the overall monetary amount of gynecomastia surgery, the patient should also take into account additional financial responsibilities such as the dollar amount of medical tests, prescription medications, and post-op appointments with the surgeon. Working people should consider any cost implications for taking a break from work for post-operative recovery.
