Dr. C is a gifted surgeon. He is also a very compassionate and caring person. The results of my Tummy Tuck are amazing.
5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction
I didn't have much interaction with Dr. Cruise himself. My consultation was really short because I had done my homework for years and even got a quote before coming in. I had seen his results so basically my only question was "how soon can I ?". When I did interact with him, mostly right before the operation, he seemed pleasant and focused; the latter of which is more important to me than any surgeons people skills.

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction
I have struggled with gynecomastia since I found out I had it in high school about 8 years ago. I had only been to one consultation before but I did not feel very comfortable with the doctor or the procedure so I had forgotten about getting the surgery all together. Around 5 years later with the body issue still on my mind, I finally decided enough is enough and did some searching for a...

LOTS OF PICS COMING SOON! BACKGROUND: I am 32 years old, 5'6", 127 lbs, approx 17% body fat. I am a serious combat/ MMA athlete and for this reason was very concerned about recovery process and time.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift
I had a Breast Revision surgery with Dr. Cruise (with Breast lift) and cannot recommend him enough. I unfortunately had 2 previous surgeries with other surgeons that did not go too well and was about to give up all hope before I was referred to his office. I was so pleased and blown away by the skill Dr. Cruise has that I ended up doing a Tummy Tuck with BBL 8 months after getting my breast...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift
Thank you so much Dr. Cruise for your amazing work. I love the results! I also want to offer a special thanks to Cristin and Jennifer who were so understanding and supportive when my face didn't heal as fast as I wanted it to. I wanted it to return to normal much faster than it did. When my face was still a bit swollen and healing after a month, I panicked and was afraid that I would never...

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons published a study taken in 2012, which showed that gynecomastia is the number one procedure performed on teenagers in the U.S. The average age of these boys ranges between 13-19. Since the first statistics were recorded in 1997, gynecomastia surgery has doubled. This can be attributed to the increase of awareness and understanding about gynecomastia. As a result, we are finally seeing boys and men start to come out of hiding and do something about...
