I live in Australia and the cost would be approx $5-$6K USD. It seems to me that there are more experienced / specialist gyno surgeons in the USA than where I live. To my knowledge it would cost less than $2k to have the surgery done so I can get the surgery and have a nice holiday with money to spare.

I have not seen a doctor about my problem. Over three years ago, I was taking Saw Palmetto followed by Propecia for approximately 4 months. My nipples have slight puffiness to them and are very sensitive to temperature changes and cold temperatures. When its cold, they go very hard and stick out a little while the rest of the nipple shrinks. So my problem is very mild but enough to want me to get it fixed.

I will take and post pictures in the next day or so.

rumor has it that taking Saw Palmetto (witch has phetoestrogens) can start breast growth.

I do believe that the Saw Palmetto and Propecia caused the gyno. I stopped taking them after 4 months of use. And that was more than 3 years ago.

Actually I do see quite a few Gynecomastia Patients from Australia and around the world who prefer my techniques. There also have been Australian Patients Asking for Revision Surgery after operations done first by local surgeons.

Quite a few of these patients start with our Preliminary Remote Discussion to minimize travel. While here most take a vacation enjoying what we have to offer.

Hope this helps,

Even though cost is very important we must keep in mind the risk of going the cheep way! You can get a very poor result if you are cheep or lazy to educate yourself.
I am trying to find a surgeon in sweden for the simple reason that I have problems beeing away from work an family.
I have been to several consultations with poor results

I have one more to se. He is my top choise in sweden. This alternative is the most expensive! Even more costly than surgery with our forum Doctors "gurus" here including travel and all its costs.

What I want to say is if you can I think you should consider traveling because of the expertice in US or Uk
