Dr. Cruise has over 15 years experience and is now regarded as one of the top gynecomastia surgeons in the United States. Patients from all parts of the world seek out Dr. Cruise for his surgical expertise.
Dr. Cruise is passionate about patient education and effective communication. Dr. Cruise is able to achieve the best possible results through his refined surgical approach and techniques. Dr. Cruise fully understands how powerful quality gynecomastia surgery can be in enhancing a man’s quality of life. He gets great satisfaction knowing that his surgical skills can help teenagers and adult males improve their quality of life through gynecomastia correction surgery.
Dr. Cruise was born in 1965 and grew up in the Midwest city of St. Clair Shores, MI. As soon as he graduated Valedictorian from Lakeview High School, his goal was to become a Plastic Surgeon. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Wayne State University in Michigan and then graduated in the upper class of his medical school at Wayne State University. After medical school, Dr. Cruise began his extensive training in General Surgery, Hand Surgery, Microvascular Surgery as well as Plastic Surgery.
Cosmetic surgery is Dr. Cruise’s primary focus, but he has dedicated endless hours as a burn surgeon at the Grossman Burn Center at Western Medical Hospital. Dr. Cruise has use his extensive surgical skills to help reconstruct disfigured burn victims. Restoring human form to faces and bodies devastated by burns has given him experiences that are live changing as well as an appreciation for all the subtleties that make a human face and body what they are.


Gynecomastia, enlarged male breasts, can seriously affect the psyche of a man. In our society, it is all right for a man to have a few extra pounds around his stomach but not on the chest. I am not sure why this is but I suspect it is because of the feminizing quality that breast fat brings out. Many of my patients describe not being able to take of their shirt in public and, sometimes, even with their lover. This brings up many self-esteem issues. Within the media, treatment of gynecomastia does not get the attention that other plastic surgery procedures do, most likely because of the embarrassment associated with it. This is unfortunate; gynecomastia is very treatable. As a plastic surgeon, gynecomastia treatment is exceptionally satisfying to me because the results are predictably good. It is not just the results that satisfy me but also the enhanced self-esteem that I see within my gynecomastia patients. I believe this is why gynecomastia has become a number one procedure I perform.
