What is gynecomastia?

Dr. Cruise is considered to be one of the best Gynecomastia surgeons in the world, and patients in Costa Mesa can benefit from his expertise. Gynecomastia is a condition where men suffer from enlarged breast tissue, and it can affect men of all ages. Also known as ‘male boobs’, this is a condition which is not necessarily painful, but it can lead to social embarrassment. Men who are dealing with severe cases of gynecomastia may start avoiding social situations and have low self-image and self-confidence.

What is the cause of gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is mostly caused by hormonal imbalance, when the amount of estrogen increases in men. The condition could affect one of the breasts or both, leading to asymmetry that is visible. When hormonal imbalance is the cause of gynecomastia, it affects older men and boys in puberty. However, there are several other causes for gynecomastia including obesity or use of drugs like marijuana. Mostly, the condition resolves on its own in a few months or years. But, if your condition persists, you can opt for medication or surgery.

When should you consult Dr. Cruise?

If your gynecomastia does not resolve on its own, you may experience symptoms like swollen breast tissue and tenderness. Some men also face a certain degree of pain or discharge from one or both nipples. If you notice any of these symptoms, you should consult Dr. Cruise who offers surgery to remove the enlarged tissue and give you a chiseled chest.
