What is male breast reduction?
Dr. Cruise is considered to be one of the best Gynecomastia surgeons in the world and our male patients from Laguna Beach can benefit from his expertise in this field. Gynecomastia is the condition where men suffer from enlarged breast tissue. This condition is not always painful but can sometimes leave men feeling self-conscious and cause them to shy away from social interactions. It is jokingly referred to as ‘male boobs’ which often adds to low self-esteem. Usually, it resolves on its own with time. This is especially true when gynecomastia is caused due to puberty; however, persistent and severe cases require male breast reduction surgery to help restore the appearance of the chest and your self-confidence.
What causes gynecomastia?
The primary reason for gynecomastia is an imbalance in hormones. It is caused when there is an increase in the female hormone, estrogen, in the body. You might find that the condition affects both breasts or even just one breast, leading to visible asymmetry. When it is caused by hormonal imbalance, it usually affects boys who are nearing puberty or older men. Some other causes of gynecomastia include obesity and the consumption of drugs like marijuana. If your condition has not resolved on its own over time or you are experiencing severe symptoms, you should meet with Dr. Cruise. He may recommend medication or surgery depending on different factors.
When is the right time to consult Dr. Cruise?
If you have been suffering from gynecomastia for some time and it has not resolved on its own, you may see symptoms like swelling and tenderness. In certain cases, men also experience some pain or discharge from the nipples. If you experience these symptoms, it is time to consult Dr. Cruise. He will evaluate your chest area to determine the severity of the condition and recommend the best treatment. He offers safe and effective male breast reduction so that you can enjoy a sculpted, manly chest with confidence.

Laguna Beach is a seaside resort city located in southern Orange County in California. It is famous for its mild climate throughout the year, scenic coves, environmental preservation, and artistic community. The city has remained mostly isolated from any urban encroachment due to the surrounding hills, limited highway access, and a dedicated greenbelt. The Laguna Beach coastline is also protected by 5.88 miles of state marine reserve and another 1.21 miles of state conservation area. Tourism is the primary industry with an estimated 6 million people visiting the community annually.
