“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, Joseph T Cruise, MD. 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.”
Breast Reduction and Lift with Silicone Augmentation-Dawna
“I finally made the choice to have a breast lift and reduction after many years of struggling with my sagging breasts. Ever since I was 17, any piece of clothing that I bought had to be selected to fit my large breasts that did not sit in the right position on my body. I went on many consultations, but received conflicting opinions and did not feel comfortable with my experiences. After getting a referral from a good friend, I came to see Joseph T Cruise, MD and was immediately impressed with his office, staff and the way in which he conducted his consultations. He took the time to listen to my needs and concerns and was a class act all the way. I made the instant decision to have him perform my surgery. I felt so prepared going into surgery, no question was left unanswered! Being so informed alleviated all my fears going into surgery. I was guided through the post op process and was given tips on bra management to help maintain my look, I loved that! The office staff offered support the whole way through. I am thrilled with my results and am loving all the clothes I am able to wear with ease. Even though I had a breast lift, my incisions have healed up beautifully. Joseph T Cruise, MD made me feel like a rock star and I am definitely a little more sassy now since having the surgery! I wish I had not waited for so long! ”

Breast lift, Rhinoplasty and Fat Transfer-Jennifer
“I cannot begin to express the tremendous amount of gratitude I have for Joseph T Cruise, MD and the amazing work he did for me. I recently had a breast lift, rhinoplasty and fat transfer. Having these procedures have truly been a dream come true for me. I could not be any happier with my results. It has only been 7 weeks since my surgery and I feel great, and for the first time in many years, I feel happy with my appearance.
After having my amazing son 5 years ago, I lost a lot of volume in my breast after nursing. I went from being a natural D cup to a small C cup and had lost most of my upper breast fullness. When I first found out that I would need a lift, I was very nervous about the incisions. Also having an olive complexion, I tend to hyper pigment a little darker than average. At 7 weeks my incision look fantastic! They are fading into nothing and I honestly don’t feel self-conscious about them what so ever. They are not visible even in the tiniest bikinis. Joseph T Cruise, MD definitely helped me find the perfect size for my body frame and gave me the exact look I was going for. I didn’t have to replace my entire wardrobe as I thought I might, however everything fits me 100% better.
As a kid I constantly got teased about my nose which I have always felt very self-conscious about. I did a lot of modeling in my 20’s and unfortunately it can be an industry in which you are very harshly critiqued when it comes to your appearance. I will never forget the moment my nose cast came off and I saw my nose minus the hump and bulbous tip. Even with the initial swelling, I was so happy. I felt like my heart went into my throat. The best thing about it is that it just gets better and better every single day. Even though Joseph T Cruise, MD greatly reduced my hump and bulbous tip, I still feel like I look like ME. I don’t feel like I look like I’ve had my nose done. Looking natural is very important to me. Joseph T Cruise, MD sat down with me during my consultation and did digital imaging on my photos and the results look even better than I anticipated.
Last but not least my fat transfer truly did me wonders. Not only did it really soften my appearance and take back a few years on me, it really improved my skin texture as well. I did all of these procedures on a Friday and came back to work on Monday only 2 days later. I hear from many of Joseph T Cruise, MD’s patients that they did not experience pain post operatively. I can honestly attest that my experience was completely painless. The only discomfort that I had was tightness in my breast area for the first 1-2 weeks. Other than that I had no down time which of course was a huge concern as a single mother. Waking up every day with confidence is happiness I have never experienced before and I could never express my gratitude in words. Joseph T Cruise, MD is truly a master of his art and takes the time to really listen to every patient. Thank you so much Joseph T Cruise, MD!!”

“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 Joseph T Cruise, MD 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 Joseph T Cruise, MD.

His staff is very knowledgeable of the procedure and extremely caring. I've wanted to do this for 15 years now and finally had this done with Joseph T Cruise, MD. My new bellybutton looks natural and very nicely made. I have healed very well with almost no pain at all. If you're looking for a cosmetic surgery definitely go with Joseph T Cruise, MD. I can't thank you enough Joseph T Cruise, MD for bringing this amount of happiness back into my life. ”

“Dr Cruise and his staff are by far the most talented and kind hearted people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting!! Jessica, Jen, and Cristin go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable, welcome, and really make sure your pre and post-surgery care is taken care of.

Breast Lift Augmentation-Stephanie
“I was referred to Joseph T Cruise, MD by a very close friend of mine, which was my first indication he was a reputable surgeon, and went to visit him for a breast augmentation procedure. From the moment I walked into Joseph T Cruise, MD's office, it was a serene, calming, and professional environment that made me feel comfortable and not overwhelmed. Prior to my first visit with Joseph T Cruise, MD I had done extensive research on his website which is filled with virtually every kind of imaginable information. Although I had taken in depth notes of my concerns and/or questions, I still wanted to direct these questions at Joseph T Cruise, MD. Before I had a chance to ask my questions, he had answered them all, made me feel comfortable with the procedure, and provided realistic information to fulfill my needs.
I have had small breasts my entire life, and after I had my son, they seemed to have diminished in size even more! I had always wanted a breast augmentation, and I felt I had reached the right time in my life to get the procedure. I never had any doubts of Joseph T Cruise, MD's ability, work, or dedication to his patients. On the day of surgery he met with me to reconfirm the decisions that we had made, and made me feel completely comfortable about getting the surgery. I love my new breasts! They have honestly made me feel like more of a woman, which I think makes me a better and more dedicated wife and mother. I would, and have, referred Joseph T Cruise, MD to anyone looking to have a plastic surgery procedure, as I am completely confident in him and his entire staff!”
“I originally came to see Joseph T Cruise, MD to address the concerns I had with my aging eye area. During the consultation, he explained how if I only addressed the eye area, it would look unnatural. What I actually needed was a full facial rejuvenation. I was hesitant at first, but I had complete trust in Joseph T Cruise, MD as he had performed a procedure on my son the year prior. I am so happy that I listened to him as the end result is natural and beautiful. Everyone at the office is so warm and caring, it is like visiting old friends when I go to my appointments, they always remember the little details of my life, which really shows how much they truly care.
Since having the surgery, I am definitely more social and confident. I have no issue walking out of the house without makeup on, something I would NEVER do before. I also just feel better and notice an increase in energy. At a recent family reunion, nobody suspected that I had surgery, they all just kept telling me how rested and beautiful I looked, and they all thought it was because I had retired! When I told them I had a facelift, they were shocked by the natural results. I am so glad I didn’t wait any longer to have surgery, as why wait when you can start enjoying the results now. ”
Face Lift, Neck Lift and Upper Eyelid Surgery-Debbie
“My daughter’s wedding was coming up and I was feeling like I needed a little refresher. I felt that I was starting to look tired and worn out, but I was not feeling tired and worn out. I was very worried about having a facelift as I did not want to look overdone. I was so happy that I ended up finding Joseph T Cruise, MD!
During the consultation he appeared to be right in sync with what I wanted to accomplish with my face. He really listen to my concerns and was empathetic. He promised me that I was not going to end up looking fake or like I even had something done and he was right! The end result is amazing! Most people just think I lost weight and tell me I look great. I love looking at the photos from my daughter’s wedding. The most important thing is that I still look like me, just a more refreshed version. Thank you Joseph T Cruise, MD! ”

“From the moment I walked into the office everyone there greeted me with a warm welcome. And since the surgery I love when I have my checkups because I get to see all the staff and have a blast talking with them!
Joseph T Cruise, MD is so down to earth and honest with me. He gave me exactly what I had in mind. I am so happy with my breast augmentation and so glad I choose him”
“I felt so unattractive that I would not take family photos, attend parties with my husband, or plan family vacations. This all changed when a friend gave me Joseph T Cruise, MD’s number and encouraged me to go on one last consultation. When I met Joseph T Cruise, MD and his staff they were warm, welcoming, and made me feel at ease. But what really sold me was the way he explained the breast augmentation procedure. It was different than the way the other surgeons I consulted, preformed this procedures. I felt very comfortable with the time he took to answer all my questions regarding my fear of post surgery pain. I had heard the pain was horrible from a friend who had a small tummy tuck with another doctor. Joseph T Cruise, MD assured me that I would not be in pain. He was right as I do not tolerate pain well.
I can not thank you enough for the life changing mommy make over. You are truly an amazing surgeon with an artistic gift. I am in awe every time I look in the mirror. Dr Cruise, you transformed this frumpy 48 year old woman into one smoking hot lady; at least according to my husband. I still cannot believe the miracle you preformed on my breasts with the lift and implants they are beautiful and let’s not forget the extended tummy tuck. I now can wear things I have not been able to for 20 years. So thank you again, and a special thanks to Jessica and Jennifer for their support and caring. You two are truly beautiful young ladies. Joseph T Cruise, MD is very lucky to have you both working for him. ”
Mommy Makeover (Secondary Breast Lift with Implant Exchange & Circumferential Body Lift)
“I was always a confident woman... Being a formal model and working in television and production, I’m inspired to keep an active, healthy lifestyle. Though I never thought about letting myself go, having children definitely took a significant toll on my figure. When you are single, you spend a lot of time focusing on yourself, your appearance, your body. Having children changes that focus, and although I am fortunate to have a great supportive husband and four beautiful boys to keep me busy; I wanted to feel the way I did about my body 10 years ago. So this year, my husband chose to help me get my former model body back.
It has been 10 months since the surgery, and I can honestly say I look better now than I did 10 years ago. Its funny how memory fades.. time goes by and you forget what it felt like pre nursing days. It may seem vain, striving to have the body you want, but how you look reflects how you feel. You project more confidence to other people when you are confident in your own skin.
My husband is ecstatic with the results as well. He compliments me more now than ever, and says I look even better after having our four boys than I did before. Even my boys notice... they say “MOM’S HOT”! This experience has been life changing; though I must say, you can’t do this for someone else you have to do it for yourself. My advice to any woman going through the procedure to choose a surgeon who will produce the most natural

Thank you all for taking such good care of me. I will pray this coming year is a blessed year for you all, indeed!
Neck Midline Plication-Robert
“I can strongly recommend Joseph T Cruise, MD if you are thinking of having something done. I plan on seeing him for additional procedures in the near future.
I just had a neck midline plication and I’m very happy with the results. Joseph T Cruise, MD has artistic abilities, which is an essential quality in a successful plastic surgeon. His focus on detail and precision is also very important. But what impressed me most was his ability to understand and envision what I wanted. His staff is very well mannered and will treat you with the highest level of respect. That alone should tell you something about Joseph T Cruise, MD. Overall, I would highly suggest Cruise Plastic Surgery to anyone who wants great results and excellent customer service.”

Liposuction Flanks, Breast Lift with Augmentation-Jessica
“The first surgery I had was lipo flanks (love handles). After surgery I was so happy. The results were so amazing. Having that surgery opened my eyes to the true benefits of plastic surgery and how those little aesthetic changes make such an impact on your confidence level and overall
I always knew I would need a breast lift, but always thought I would do this after I had children. I was a natural 34DD by high school. Every time I would think about having the procedure I would find an excuse why I shouldn’t. After the first year of assisting Joseph T Cruise, MD and seeing all his patients post op, I started considering moving forward with the surgery myself. I’m 25 and it may be 10 years before I have children. I was already unhappy with the shape of my breast and I didn't want to know what they would look like if I waited 10 more years.
Just like my last surgery, my results turned out better than I had even hoped for. For the first time in my life I have worn a strapless bikini top, and bralettes and things that used to be so unflattering to my body. I felt like a new person. Looking back I can't even believe I second guessed doing the procedure. I’m so happy I didn't wait and waste my youth being insecure about my body. I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to see other patients from start to finish who had gone through breast lift surgery. Without that, I may have never done it myself. I feel better about my body now than I ever have and it’s a beautiful thing.”

“Joseph T Cruise, MD, I think you are a genius!!!!I cannot tell you how much I love what you did to my face! It is so subtle yet profound! I really like it.
Yesterday, a man stopped me in a store and told me that I was the “most smoking’ hot woman he has ever seen” and that “he could not believe what his eyes were looking at” lol. That is not bad to hear when you are almost 41! Although, he might have been drunk hehehe”

“It has been almost 4 years since my face lift and fat transfer and over three years since my breast augmentation and I can honestly say that I am grateful every day that I had the procedures done. It was worth every penny to be able to look in the mirror and know that I am looking the very best that I can.
Even though it has been several years since my breast augmentation it is still fun to buy new tops, dresses and lingerie because I have curves in all the right places. Thanks to Joseph T Cruise, MD's good eye and judgment...I am just the perfect size. I can still look professional in a business suit or I can look sexy in a clingy low cut dress.
I am fortunate and blessed to have had Joseph T Cruise, MD as my plastic surgeon. He is a compassionate, caring and skilled surgeon. I have had many compliments over the years about my appearance. Every time I get a compliment I mentally say a little thank you to Joseph T Cruise, MD.”

Breast Lift with Augmentation, Liposuction Abdomen, Flanks and Axilla-Jessica
“I am so happy with my results from procedures I had done with Joseph T Cruise, MD. I had my first procedure which was a breast lift and augmentation with liposuction of the flanks and lower stomach a year ago. It took me about five or six years to actually decide to get the procedures done. I did some extensive planning and went to multiple consultations before I found Joseph T Cruise, MD.
When I went to my consult with Joseph T Cruise, MD he was so patient and caring and so informative about every detail. I was not expecting to have a breast lift due to not ever having children but I learned that's not always the case. I had so much sagging breast tissue that needed to be removed to get the result I was looking for. I have always worked out and eaten healthy but I have never been able to get rid of my little pouch on my lower stomach and my flanks. I figured this would be a gift to me and a life changing experience. It was costly, however, you cannot put a price on the quality and the true gift that Joseph T Cruise, MD has.
Since my surgery I have dropped 4 pants sizes and I love wearing my bikinis and I feel so great with my body image, I feel like I have a certain glow now. I still, to this day, get so many compliments from family and friends and people I don't even know. I think the most important part of the whole experience is the after care and recovery. I truthfully feel that it's like a family at Cruise Plastic Surgery. Joseph T Cruise, MD is the best of the best and his staff - they are such wonderful people. I feel like I am a different person in the way I walk, feel, and look! I love my body and I am such a happier person”

I love that I still look like me, just more refined. The staff was very friendly and spoke from experience in answering my questions and easing any concerns I had. They made me feel well prepared in knowing what to expect pre and post-surgery. His office and the surgery center are in close proximity and both are easy to locate.

Breast Lift with Implant Exchange-Amber
“I went to Joseph T Cruise, MD's office after getting a bad breast augmentation from another doctor. I was fearful of going through another surgery, especially after the bad experience I previously had, but Joseph T Cruise, MD and his staff really made me feel confident. They had me come in for 2 consultations just to make sure that I was comfortable. Joseph T Cruise, MD is very professional, knowledgeable, and has good bedside manner. He knows what you want to look like, and what looks good. I was impressed with the reviews I had read about him. His staff is excellent. They are very knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. If it wasn't for all of them I wouldn't have had such a great experience.
I think that Joseph T Cruise, MD is truly an awesome surgeon. I came out of surgery in disbelief because of how little pain I felt. The Surgery Center was amazing also. The staff was wonderful, put me at ease, and took great care of me. ”

Joseph T Cruise, MD is a true professional. I was so happy and confident with Joseph T Cruise, MD’s abilities, I sent my mom over for her eye surgery. ”
“This is the best money I have spent in my life. I am 49 and I came to Joseph T Cruise, MD looking to have a rejuvenation procedure on my neck. After Joseph T Cruise, MD explained to me that having my whole face addressed with customized procedures would give me the best result, I decided to go for it! I appreciated his honesty about how my whole face was aging not just my neck. I ended up having a whole facial rejuvenation procedure and I could not be happier! You couldn’t ask for a better team in Joseph T Cruise, MD and his staff. They supported and guided me through the whole process and made everything so comfortable.
Since the surgery, I am more confident and feel like I can do everything I did in my 20’s. I have the perfect natural look. I now look on the outside, how I feel on the inside; more vibrant, more alive, more like me!”
“Joseph T Cruise, MD - The reason I decided to have a facelift was because of what my seven year old grandson said to me. He said "Grama you look like the lunch lady, she has wrinkles like you".
At that moment I decided to make an appointment for a consultation with you. You were also highly recommended by my daughter. Joseph T Cruise, MD your expertise is truly one of a kind. You are exceptionally genuine and your signature is truly on my face. Your staff, the anesthesiologist and the recovery nurses are extremely kind, knowledgeable and awesome. Joseph T Cruise, MD you took 15 years off of my tired appearance. I look younger, natural and refreshed. I love how I look and I owe it all to you. Thank you and may God bless you! ”

Thank you Joseph T Cruise, MD for giving me the best Wedding gift! 🙂 ”
Breast Lift Augmentation, Tummy Tuck and Liposuction-Stacey
“Some people view Cosmetic Surgery as a means to an end. For me, it was just the beginning. Having my Mommy Makeover was the best thing I have ever done for myself. After gaining 80 pounds with both pregnancies, my breasts were deflated and my stomach stretched beyond the point of bringing it back with sit ups. I went to see other surgeons, but they either were cold or just seemed like they wanted money. My experience with Joseph T Cruise, MD and his staff was wonderful. They treated me like family and were always available when I needed them. The surgical experience was not nearly as painful or hard as I had imagined it would be and the results were exactly what I had hoped for.
Having the surgery was a launch pad for my health, I started eating better and working out and actually lost 80 pounds after the surgery. My whole family has now benefited from the positive changes I made since having my Mommy Makeover. We are all running as a family and the healthiest we have ever been. I actually look better now than I did on my wedding day!”

I highly recommend anything you maybe be considering as they will all be there for you every step of the way!”
“Dear Joseph T Cruise, MD’. That is how my first letter began. Now look, I am writing to you again, this time to thank you for the life-long gift you have given me. You may not have saved my life, but you have certainly changed it with your generosity. When plastic surgery seemed out of the question, you gave me a chance...You have given me much more than a surgery; you have given me a life experience to remember, and a special type of joy that cannot easily be explained. I couldn’t thank you enough for this feeling. I have my whole life ahead of me, and I hope to meet other people just like you. People that help, not out of self-interest, but help because of genuine sympathy and a giving nature. Actions like yours make life sweet. ”

Asymmetric Gynecomastia correction-Ian
“I came to Joseph T Cruise, MD 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”

“I had my surgery six weeks ago and I feel great, I look great and am very happy with the results!My recovery was much easier than I imagined. I could see the results immediately.I have wanted this procedure for so long and after the bandages and the splint were removed I couldn’t believe how good it looked even a week after the procedure. I didn’t even think how much time I spent before surgery just thinking about my nose until I had it changed. It changed the way I walk into a room, I go grocery shopping. It is just amazing. Joseph T Cruise, MD has been so patient, informative and just so supportive. Thank you everyone!”

Sunday it will be 4 years since you and your staff transformed my body and quite literally changed my life!
On that magical day I gained more than physical balance (having a lift and implants!) - I gained confidence and a comfort level with myself that provided the gateway to wholeness.
I no longer feared intimacy with my boyfriend, (now husband). I no longer loathed waking up on Saturday's and slipping on my bikini to head across beautiful, PCH. Pool parties and beach days no longer stung.
Summertime and the livin' WAS easy!!!
Fast forward to August 8, 2014.
Waking up to meet a photographer, taking those boudoir shots I had envisioned for so many years... then marrying my best friend on our 8 year anniversary.
Your hand was in that. You are such a large part of the fulfillment of so many peoples dreams.
You hold the key to your talents. The simple fact that you harnessed those gifts… your precision, your dedication, your preciseness, your eye- your perfect skillset - is your gift to this world.
My, Thank you is long overdue.”
