As one of the top Los Angeles gynecomastia surgeons, Dr. Cruise pays close attention to the statistical results reported each year by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Earlier this year they released their 2012 findings for cosmetic procedures, which included some interesting data about gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction).  The report confirms that cosmetic surgery is steadily increasing when it comes to men.  In 2012 men made up 9% of the total number of cosmetic procedures performed. Another stand out in the data was the 5% increase shown in the number of gynecomastia surgeries, which is one of the larger increases seen among all body contouring treatments between both men and women.

Dr. Cruise recently mentioned how proud he is to be a gynecomastia specialist, because he knows he is helping young boys and men have a better quality of life. He states that gynecomastia is not only a physical problem, but one that can cause deep emotional issues if left untreated.

As the awareness of gynecomastia has steadily increased resulting in larger numbers of men seeking treatment, Dr. Cruise has been able to perform hundreds of gynecomastia surgeries in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and Orange County. This vast experience has allowed him the ability to refine traditional surgical treatments, which has resulted in significant improvement of his patient’s overall results. In turn, he is now deemed as one of the top gynecomastia surgeons in Los Angeles and Southern California, and is seeing a growing number of patients from other states and countries seeking out his expertise.  Dr. Cruise is still acutely aware of the need to continue shedding light on the subject of male breast reduction, to further expand the understanding of the condition, and the treatment options available. With recent advances in the gynecomastia procedures being offered by Dr. Cruise, patients must be made aware they have more options now than ever before.
