LOGOS

Los Angeles Gynecomastia is Dedicated to Male Breast Reduction Treatment

Los Angeles gynecomastia was specifically designed to address the needs of the male breast reduction patient. Expert gynecomastia surgeon, Dr. Cruise, brings more than 10 years of experience specializing in the field of gynecomastia surgery. This experience enabled him to create the first ever classification system, Cruise Classification System, highlighting the differences between each type of gynecomastia and the optimal treatment for each. 

“Many men who suffer from gynecomastia do not seek treatment mostly because they do not know a surgeon whom they can trust. If they knew of a place to go dedicated to gynecomastia; a place where they could get predictably good results often under local anesthesia, most would have it taken care of.” Dr. Cruise
