Can surgeons/do they negotiate prices for gynecomastia surgery? I'm 21 and need it, but costs too much. Can he technically give it to me cheaper or?

Not a major disorder: Gynecomastia surgery is often a cosmetic problem, instead of a major medical disorder. That mean's a patient is expected to save up money to pay for it. One can just explain his situation and ask how much to save up before getting the surgery. Also, one can see 3 surgeons and get 3 estimates for the surgery. Some surgeons do adjust their prices, depending on their assessments of the situation.
