There are only a handful of plastic surgeons in the U.S. that specialize in Gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Cruise being one of them. With over 10 years experience performing gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Cruise's techniques have advanced beyond the basic techniques surgeons use, making him one of the most sought out gynecomastia surgeons in the world.
Dr. Cruise performs over 250 male breast reduction procedures each, which has allowed him to develop surgical routines that yield predictably good results. In fact, the procedure has become so advanced and efficient that most of the procedures are done under local anesthesia while the patient is watching movies on Netflix.
Gynecomastia surgery is considerably different than all other types of plastic surgery. This is why Dr. Cruise created this site. It is exclusively devoted to provide expert gynecomastia diagnosis, treatment options, and surgical information. Optimal treatment of gynecomastia requires that the gynecomastia surgeon and his entire staff have considerable knowledge and experience and are dedicated to all aspects of gynecomastia care. Recognized as a leader in the field of gynecomastia, Dr. Cruise's practice has blossomed into an international destination for men looking for optimal treatment.
The Cruise Classification System is a tool developed by Dr. Cruise to educate men about the different types of gynecomastia and the recommended treatment options for each. This type of classification system is the first of it's kind, and shows the deep understanding Dr. Cruise has about gynecomastia.
Dr. Cruise has perfected gynecomastia surgery to the point where most surgeries can be performed under local anesthesia in a comfortable, relaxing setting while watching Netflix videos. For severe cases of gynecomastia, surgery is performed under general anesthesia in a Medicare accredited outpatient facility.

WHICH ONE ARE YOU?
Many teenage boys will develop breasts during puberty, however, for most, they go away after a couple of years. If the breasts remain, it is unlikely they will ever go away without surgical correction. The great news is that male breast reduction surgery is permanent and can be performed in-office under local anesthesia.
Bodybuilders are very image conscious and dedicate a lot of time to keep their bodies in top physical shape. Unfortunately, with frequent use of body enhancing drugs (steroids), hormones are altered, which can lead to the development of excess breast tissue. Even when steroid use is stopped, the breast tissue will remain present.
Weight fluctuation and aging can take a toll on a man's body, especially in the chest area. Men are often times left with moderate to severe skin laxity causing the areola and nipple to drop downward and sit on the lower portion of the chest. This type of gynecomastia requires a more extensive procedure to address both skin excess, fat and breast tissue.
The first step in determining if gynecomastia surgery is right for you, is gaining a better understanding of the definition, causes, types, available treatments and recovery. The more knowledge you have, the more confident you will feel in whatever decision it is that you ultimately make. Click HERE to read more.
Gynecomastia is not a disease. It is not about breast tissue, it is about self confidence. - Dr. Cruise
