Typically here in the UK it can cost anywhere between £3500 up to £7000 thats if you are choosing to go private. It is possible to get the operation through the NHS though dependent on the severity of the case and the psychological impacts etc. When I was researching into Gynecomastia surgery I realised that approaching my Doctor having to sit through consolations, psychological profiles to determine if I was a worthy candidate for surgery so I concluded that going through NHS was not an avenue that I wanted to pursue so I focused my attention on finding a surgeon whom had good experience and was within my financial scope.
Speaking with your Doctor
I approached my doctor with my embarrassing problem mainly as I thought it was the right thing to do – to confide in a professional. Now I dont want to seem negative or put you off seeing your doctor but my doctor seemed to be irritated that I was wasting his time. This could be down his particular lack of knowledge on the subject or that this was deemed in his eyes a cosmetic enhancement and as I was not ‘ill’ didnt really require his attention.
I came away feeling frustrated and angry and wish I had not bothered in the first place. This may have been a isolated incident as im sure that there are many of you out there that have been with your doctors for a long time. As I have moved around the country I have had many different doctors so perhaps the bond on knowing who you are as a patient will hold more weight.
I would still encourage you to talk with a doctor if you have Gynecomastia and are struggling. There are cases when it will be possible to have surgery on the National Health System though this will take time and assessment of each case. You will probably have to go through some form of counseling as a requirement of the assessment period.
