Gynecomastia Reviews & Testimonials

Reading gynecomastia reviews and testimonials from actual patients who have completed their surgical journey can be very helpful if you are trying to determine if male breast reduction surgery is right for you. Dr. Cruise has a large number of gynecomastia reviews for you to read. Testimonials are listed below and additional  gynecomastia reviews can be found on Yelp, Real Self, and Google.

When 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 modeling and it shows in my work.

Gynecomastia Review 

Dr. 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!

Gynecomastia Review and Tummy Tuck Review 

Even though I lived close to the beach, I never wanted to go…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!

I came to Dr. Cruise around seven years after I had discovered my gynecomastia. He was the first doctor I went to look at, and after the consultation I immediately decided to have him do my surgery. I went into the surgery with a few reservations, namely a fear of pain and worry about the length of the recovery process. The pain was nowhere near as bad as I thought, it did hurt, but this was surgery. The only way I can describe the recovery process is annoying, nothing horrible, just annoying, although the feeling of finally being able to take off the compression vest and seeing the new me was incredible to say the least. As soon as I was able to (roughly 12 weeks) I went to the beach, for the first time in two years, with my shirt off! The best part was there were no weird looks or comments. My clothing options have opened immensely, there’s nothing to be seen through a white shirt. To anyone worried about surgery, don’t be. It’s a fairly easy and painless process, and the results will last much longer than any scaring or discomfort you might experience.

My life has gotten so much better. I’m more confident and happier. I was in Florida at a resort and was finally able to go in the pool without my shirt on in front of my friends. The surgery has been life changing. It’s unbelievable. I wish I would have done this 15-20 years ago.

Dr. Cruise is amazing!

I was very skeptical about getting the surgery done but post op I can’t believe I didn’t go to Dr. Cruise to get this done earlier. I’m very happy with my results. Dr. Cruise is a true professional. I was so happy and confident with Dr. Cruise’s abilities, I sent my mom over for her eye surgery.

First off, Dr. Cruise’s staff is amazing! They are very professional and knowledgeable, a great complement to Dr. Cruise’s tremendous ability as a plastic surgeon. I had gynecomastia surgery on 6/14/12, and the results are absolutely amazing! Dr. Cruise is simply an artist. I had quite a large volume of breast tissue, excess skin, and VERY enlarged areolas. Dr. Cruise removed the breast tissue and reduced the size of my areolas. But more importantly, he performed a “donut lift,” essentially tightening up the surrounding skin, such that the chest isn’t saggy. This is very important! I really can’t put into words how great his work is, it is simply amazing. My chest is now flat and there is absolutely no indication of a corrective procedure at all. Dr. Cruise is worried more about the success of your surgery than you are, and his work will show it, I promise you this!

I had discussed Gynecomastia procedure with perhaps up to 10-skilled surgeons in multiple states.  After meeting with Dr. Cruise I knew he was the professional for me.  I canceled the remaining consultations and did the work with Dr. Cruise.  Net net of it all is I couldn’t be happier.  Great Dr, great staff; and I will do more procedures with him.  Be certain to put him in your consultation group.

After 30 years of trying everything from diets to “boot camps” I finally found Dr. Cruise, and am thrilled with the results.
I grew up with gynecomastia, and as a boy would have benefited immensely if this surgery had been available back then.  At least, now I feel great about myself, and I have Dr. Cruise and his staff to thank for this.  He is a great doctor and has helped me tremendously.
I had my “love handles” removed at the same time, and am, again, thrilled with the results.  I would recommend him to anyone.
I’m 63 years old, and have never looked better.  Wish I had found Dr. Cruise years ago!

Anyone contemplating having their gynecomastia removed, I urge you to go for it. The procedure was very easy (for the patient). I experienced next to no discomfort during or after the surgery. I never even took 1 vicodin. What made the procedure even easier was Dr. Cruise and his staff. From my first consultation to my last check up, everyone at Cruise plastic surgery has been extremely helpful and kind. They eased any and all concerns I had before the operation, and answered all questions I have had since the operation. I have no complaints about my experience with Dr. Cruise. I would recommend anyone suffering from gynecomastia to have a consultation with him.

Having a problem of gynecomastia since high school was something I learned how to conceal by wearing small under shirts and bigger top shirts. Problem solved! All I had to do now was avoid any activities that required me to wear anything less than that. For example, going to the gym was a problem since all I could do was lift weights and go on a diet, sure I did shed a few pounds and slimmed down a bit, but on the flip side it just made my chest look bigger. Running on the treadmill would make me feel uncomfortable since my chest would bounce more than the girl next to me, or so thats how i felt.

Having my kids wanting to go do activities out to places like water parks and going to the river made it a struggle. It would seem as if I was always “at work”, not able to enjoy our vacation at the river because I would be worried about my shirt not sticking to my body as I exited the water. After learning that my condition was very common gave me comfort in knowing that I did not have to live like this anymore.

During an afternoon my wife came across Dr. Cruise’s web page and started to read and look at the pictures of before and after male breast reduction. After reading the testimonials of previous patients my wife and I decided to take the first step and scheduled an appointment to see Dr. Cruise. He described in detail what the procedure would be and what results I would get. I will say that after leaving his office in my mind I had already decided to go with him for the procedure. The staff is incredibly amazing and kind, they are very professional, Maribel is the coordinator that I spoke with over and over on the phone, any concerns I had she answered in a very assuring manner. Not to mention the staff at the surgery center were also very professional and friendly. They made it very comfortable the day of and the next day for the follow up after having my procedure done. Choosing Dr. Cruise was a decision we took by reading his reviews and meeting his staff.

Thanks to everyone there I now have the opportunity to do things that I avoided doing. Now I get a start over in life and Dr. Cruise and his staff made it all possible. Thank You. Dr. Cruise.

My experience with Dr. Cruise and his whole team was so beyond the level of amazing that I had to actually write a review.

I went to Dr. Cruise for Gynecomastia surgery and can honestly say that it was an unreal experience. His entire staff at the office is polite, professional, but most importantly, they are all extremely friendly and make you feel right at home.

Dr. Cruise is an extremely professional and personable Doctor with an obvious talent that exceeded all of my expectations. From the moment that he first checked me out, up until my last follow up appointment, I can see the care that he takes with his work and this transcends through the whole experience.

I was quite hesitant and nervous about getting the procedure done, but because of Dr Cruise and his staff, the entire process was so smooth and easy that I cannot believe it is all finished and done.

My results are amazing, and I can honestly say Dr. Cruise and his entire staff have changed my life for the better! I would never even consider going to a different surgeon for any procedure in the future and I would highly recommend Cruise Plastic Surgery for those who are on the fence!

BEST OF THE BEST! I HAD an extreme case of GYNECOMASTIA. My Experience with Dr. Cruise and his staff was and continues to be 5 star EXCELLENT.I had let him know I was very concerned of scaring and he worked so METICULOUS as if I was FAMILY.I would not normally take the time to write a review but I feel since this is an absolute life changing surgery it is important for any future patients to know EXACTLY what to expect. You can expect the DOCTOR to be completely honest with you and your body type. In conjunction with your age and skin elasticity your results will vary. I am a 48 year old male that for some reason put on a lot of FAT in my chest and it was embarrassing to the point that I needed to do something about it. Dr Cruise was the THIRD Doctor that I had consulted with and I am so happy that I did. His explanation of the procedure got me confident that I had found the right doctor. My results are above my expectations and his STAFF is knowledgeable and guided me step by step.
