    Cruise Classification System

    Dr. Cruise's extensive experience in the field of gynecomastia, led him to create what he calls the "Cruise Classification System." The images below represent the 6 Types of Gynecomastia as categorized by Dr. Cruise. Take a look at the types shown to determine which one most closely represents your situation.  The actual patient photos listed below the animated image, can be expanded for more information regarding that specific type of gynecomastia. You can also click on the image to be taken to the dedicated information page for that type to learn about the surgical options, cost, recovery, and more.
