â€œWhen I was approached to model, I was asked to trim down. I have always been physically fit, but they wanted a more slender build. When I began losing weight, I noticed one side of my chest was more enlarged than the other. It continued to get worse and it made me feel very self-conscious during my modelling shoots. I researched treatment options over a 6 month period of time and decided to have surgery with gynecomastia specialist, Dr. Cruise. I am so happy with my final results and wish I would have gotten the procedure done sooner! I feel much more confident when modelling and it shows in my work.â€ Aaron, 23 Gynecomastia correction
â€œDr. Cruise and his staff are indescribably amazing. Dr. Cruise is a master craftsman of cosmetic surgery, simply unparalleled. His staff is also very knowledgeable, caring, nurturing, patient, available, lovely, accommodating, etc. In short, they perfectly complement Dr. Cruise's ability and his quality work. I have had 2 surgeries with Dr. Cruise: gynecomastia surgery in June 2012, then a circumferential body lift in December 2013. Words cannot describe how far Dr. Cruise has exceeded my expectations. I am, literally, a new man today. I am confident, bold, outgoing, friendly, optimistic, charismatic, etc., all as a direct result of the transformation that I underwent at Dr. Cruise's office. My life is so much more fulfilling and meaningful now. I eat healthier, exercise on a regular basis and work as hard as I can to take care of and improve my new body. I feel as if Dr. Cruise has given me a fresh start on life and a chance to live to the fullest. Attached is a before/after picture showing the transformation. I can't even describe how good I feel now and how many compliments I get everywhere I go. I take off my shirt WHENEVER possible. Sorry, a bit vain, I know, but I can't help it. I left my shirt on trying to hide my body for many years. Now it's time to make up for all that! :-) Dr. Cruise is focused on quality rather than quantity and will not agree to a surgery if he isn't 100% confident he can meet (and often exceed) your expectations. You will get personal 1 on 1 treatment and Dr. Cruise will cater to you specifically. He is also extremely personable. Be honest and open, as he will do the same. Take a chance on Dr. Cruise if a cosmetic procedure is what you seek. I promise you will not be disappointed! Invest in yourself. Life is too short not to be as happy with yourself as possible. Don't let anyone talk you out of or into this. Do this for yourself!â€ Erik, 32 Gynecomastia and Tummy Tuck
â€œEven though I lived close to the beach, I never wanted to goâ€¦I always looked forward to when it was cold so that I could hide under a jacket. I never felt confident or comfortable with myself and ended up just letting myself go. I thought I was just stuck with having the enlarged breasts, I was unaware there was a solution and felt totally powerless. I just want to give a heartfelt thanks to Dr. Cruise and his staff for changing the way I live and how I feel about myself. I can stand tall with confidence and certainty thanks to Dr. Cruise. Thanks again!â€ Luke, 19 Gynecomastia Surgery Luke lost over 80lbs after the surgery.
