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.

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.
