Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction) Cost and Reviews in Malaysia 2023

If you are looking for gynecomastia related information and treatment prices in Malaysia, you are in the right place.

You have most likely browsed through various websites and hopefully, have shortlisted a few clinics or centres. However, it’s clear that some of these sites are not aware of the local regulations and the Guidelines on Aesthetic Medical Practice for Registered Medical Practitioners. For gynecomastia treatment procedures in Malaysia, the guidelines define and stipulate who, what and where the procedure can be and cannot be done.

There are also too many self proclaimed experts out there, but who's to know? That's why the guidelines above were developed, in order to protect innocent consumers.

Readers and publishers tend to have problems differentiating between gynecomastia and male breast reduction.

True gynecomastia is an enlargement of the male breast gland because of a hormonal imbalance, but the appearance of enlarged may breasts may be ascribed to pseudogynecomastia, a symptom of excess fat which deposits on the chest.

Gynecomastia is not a procedure as in male breast reduction. Reduction mammoplasty (male breast reduction surgery) has been used in severe cases of the condition, long-term gynecomastia, or in cases in which drug therapies have not been effective to help restore a normal breast appearance.

In order to assist you with your online research and decision making process on gynecomastia treatment in Malaysia, we have compiled and organised essential information on gynecomastia in Malaysia accordingly in one place.

Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction) Cost

The cost for gynecomastia treatments may vary based on the doctor performing the treatment, the type of procedure used, the severity of the gynecomastia, as well as the healthcare facility where the actual procedure is performed.

Male breast reduction surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia and for severe cases of gynecomastia, surgery is performed under general anesthesia in an accredited private healthcare facility.

The average price for a gynecomastia surgery in Malaysia in private centres may vary from RM 10,000 to RM 20,000 as a day-care procedure or with one night stay in a private hospital.

If liposuction is all that is required, the fee will be on the lower end. Cases where skin tightening and nipple repositioning are required will cost more. If the procedure is done as a daycare procedure, the total fee will be lower.

Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction) Reviews

Surgery in Singapore/Malaysia

Just a journal here to document my thoughts and journey. Anyone is welcome to share their experience here.

I had been bothered by the condition since the age of 8. I am 29 now. There's 21 years of shame and humiliation. Finally, I plucked up the courage and wanted to do something bout it before my 30th birthday.

Some stats about me. 170cm, 89kg. Yes I am overweight( the boobs were with me even when i was 60kg)and I am working hard to lose another 8kg before my surgery in Nov. It's bloody hard I must say.

As always, the most common problem with the surgery is the cost. Hence I am having a dilemma whether to get the procedure done in Singapore or Malaysia.

I have consulted few Drs so far, both in Singapore and Malaysia and will list down their differences here in terms of cost and location.

Singaporean men getting load off their chest with 'man boob' reduction surgery - May 2017

SINGAPORE: At 50, sales manager Peter Lee (not his real name) is proud of his trim 32-inch (81cm) waistline, which he has maintained over the last 20 years through a gruelling, thrice-weekly gym routine.

But instead of flaunting his sculpted torso, Lee has taken to hiding under baggy T-shirts – all because he has developed a pair of so-called man boobs. These “moobs”, as they are colloquially known, have grown over the last few years due to pockets of fat accumulating in the areas below and to the side of his nipples.
