4 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Surgery done 2/25 - Back in for cleaning/restitching 3/18

I saw Dr. Rucker for a birthmark removal and that's when I started thinking of the reduction. He doesn't talk very much, I guess I'd call him taciturn, but all instructions were written down and he did a BEAUTIFUL job.

The 411 on Tummy Tucks

Joseph W. Rucker, MD, FACS Are exercise and weight loss not giving you the abdomen you desire? The tummy-tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure helps to flatten your abdomen by removing excess skin and fatty tissue. This procedure is suitable for men and women who are in good general health. Tummy tuck should not be confused with liposuction (the cosmetic surgery used to remove fat deposits), although your surgeon may also elect to perform liposuction to improve the...

The Components of a Mommy Makeover

Joseph W. Rucker, MD, FACS Childbearing can be one of life’s most rewarding experiences, but it can also take a toll on the mother’s body, often causing women to lose their hourglass figures. Each woman is affected differently, with age and genetics playing a significant role in how her body recovers. Even with the assistance of a personal trainer and a proper diet plan, both of which I strongly recommend, many women may find it difficult to get it all back together after...

What To Know About Facelifts

Joseph W. Rucker, MD, FACS Patients can be confused by the different procedures offered. Just the word "facelift" can be intimidating, because it implies that the whole face is lifted. In the majority of limited-facial procedures that I have performed the main objective has been to produce a more natural result. My goal is to make the patient look like a younger version of themselves. It is imperative that the patient not look done after the procedure. It is...

The Two Types of Rhinoplasty

Joseph W. Rucker, MD, FACS Nasal surgery has become more popular in recent years because the nose is the most noticeable facial feature. We can often disguise protruding ears with various hairstyles and soften the appearance of our eyes with makeup, but our unwanted nasal features can’t be hidden or disguised. In the 500 Rhinoplasty procedures that I have performed, I have employed a conservative approach. This method avoids the dreaded “operated on” or “done”...

Breast Augmentation

Joseph W. Rucker, MD, FACS Many females with small breasts are dissatisfied with their body image. Breast Augmentation (augmentation mammoplasty) is a procedure designed to enhance fullness by enlarging a woman’s breast through the surgical placement of a breast implant. The primary goal is to: • Enlarge a naturally small breast, which is often an inherited condition • Restore breast volume lost following a pregnancy or weight loss • Achieve better...
