I met Dr. Cruise when I consulted him after a really bad breast augmentation and lift. I had done my research and thought I had found a highly rated, and respected surgeon. I was wrong. There is no other word than "disfigured" for how I looked when he had finished. I was so lopsided I would literally cringe everytime I passed a mirror. I'm not a 20-something. I'm a 40-something. I had been waiting 20 years to be able to do this for myself. Dr. Cruise and his team were friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and professional. I really got the sense that they truly cared about me and what I was going through. I was not only dealing with the physical "trauma", but also emotional trauma. I felt disfigured. Tiffani was my patient coordinator, and she was amazing. Dr. Cruise took the time to make sure I understood what he needed to do in order to correct the damage done by the first surgeon. I knew the surgery would be costly, but actually seeing it in writing crushed me. The repair work was going to cost almost as much as the original surgery. I opted to have the original surgeon correct his mistake. He would charge me for just the operating room fees. I mean, he couldn't make it worse, right? Wrong! So, now two sugeries in, I returned to Dr. Cruise. The damage was WORSE. I could hardly believe it. I was a wreck. After several more discussions with Tiffani and Dr. Cruise, I scheduled my surgery with him. That was March 2013. I'm 10 weeks into my healing and the results are amazing. I still have some healing left to do, but my self esteem has been restored. Dr. Cruise is an ARTIST. Although, my husband teases me that my breasts are worth their weight in gold, literally! I won't trust my body to anyone but Dr. Cruise and anyone seeking a reference will be directed straight to Cruise Plastic Surgery.
After a prior bad experience with a
plastic surgeon I spent moths online looking for a plastic surgeon. While online I looked for a plastic surgeon who received positive feedback, one who was on the board of plastic surgery, and received overall good ratings. After searching for over six months I decided to go with Dr. Cruise because I read so many client reviews on how he spends quality time with his patients and cares. These were very important qualities to me. From my very first experience at Cruise Plastic Surgery Center I was impressed with the care I was given and the way I was treated. The patient coordinator, Kristin was amazing and went above and beyond to assure my experience was good by being available, calling me daily, and responding immediately to my texts.
My case was different I had two prior breast augmentations with saline implants. Not only were my implants so far apart that I had a wide gap in between, but one implant had bottomed out and dropped so low it was touching my abdomen. Dr. Cruise assured me it was a difficult procedure to do, since I was a special kind of lift, but it could be done and also provide me with better spacing and cleavage. Dr. Cruise and his staff knew I wanted the procedure done immediately and despite a heavy summer schedule were able to fit me in within two weeks. They were reassuring and supportive during my whole experience. Dr. Cruise took time to spend with me and always answered all of my questions at each appointment. I ended up doing a Breast Reconstructive Surgery to replace my saline implants with silicon and went from 350cc to 550cc while doing a lift on my right side where I had bottomed out. I also decided to do liposuction of my flanks because that had always been a target area for me. I am immensely impressed with the work Dr. Cruise did, not only do I have amazing cleavage with a lift, he even repaired my scars from previous doctor to look so much smaller. I would highly recommend Dr. Cruise and his staff to anyone looking for Breast Augmentation/Reconstructive or Liposuction Procedures.
BREAST LIFT WITH IMPLANTS, PERFECT
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Cruise. I went into my surgery with expectations of improvement rather than perfection and what I got was near-perfection. It has only been 3 months since my surgery and my scars are already barely noticeable (they are said to fade maximally by 1 year post-op so I still have 9 months of fading!). My breasts look perky, natural, and exactly as I had always wished they looked before undergoing surgery. Dr. Cruise clearly listened carefully to my specifications because the results are exactly what I wanted. Although Dr. Cruise is not at all post-op appointments (there are quite a few as his stretegy for amazingly tiny scars involves 3 months-of-surgical tape that is changed in office), he has staffed his office with incredibly capable, kind, and knowledgeable nurses and staff. I am actually kind of sad not to see their smiling faces so often now that my appointments are farther apart. The entire experience here was comfortable, supportive, and friendly and most importantly my results are fantastic.
I had been wanting to get a breast lift since I was about 16 and I waited for 10 years to find the right doctor and to have the money to do it. I sure did with Dr. Cruise! I went to a couple different doctors, some that were less expensive but this is a once in a lifetime surgery and Dr. Cruise was worth every dollar! I knew from the moment I walked into his office that he was the doctor for me! He was very knowledgable, knew what he was doing, made you feel very comfortable and the whole vibe in the office was like you were family from when you first walked in! The assistant Cristin that I had was the most amazing person throught out the entire experience. Pre-op, during surgery, post op and all the times that you visit the office for your follow up appointments, they are all amazing the whole staff. Dr Cruise is in my opinion the best plastic surgeon in the are for sure! I would recommend him to everyone that asked me! Dr. Cruise recentally "graduated" me (it has been 4 months since my surgery and he said it looks great!) I feel better than I have my whole life and I am so glad that I found Dr. Cruise and I put all my trust in him and his staff and they did an amazing job!
Orange County's Best Plastic Surgeon!!!. I knew I wanted to choose Dr. Cruise for my breast lift and upper eyelid surgery when I saw what an amazing job he did on my sister. I still did my homework and consulted with 2 other surgeons but my decision was made easily when compared to the others. The experience all began with his staff, they were so down to earth and genuinly cared about me throughout the whole process. I looked forward to my office visits! As for Dr. Crusie, I can't say enough about his skills and bedside manner. He's a class act. It has been 2 months since my surgery and I could not be happier! For me it was the best feeling to have piece of mind knowing I was in good hands from beginning until now. I encourage ANYONE considering plastic surgery to meet Dr. Cruise and his team.
you don't have anything to fear!. I'm a recent patient of Dr. Cruise and I felt compelled to express my gratitude for the procedure and the life changing effects afterwards. Chances are your looking up reviews because you are interested in having something done and are attempting to find the right doctor. If you do more research than city search you will notice a pattern of 5 star reviews. I will confirm these by saying the results of the procedure and the customer service are in tandem: excellent! It's very nerve racking to pick someone who is going to be operating on your body and finding somebody is difficult when there are so many doctors backed by various institutions and have awards. What I can say is this is the Dr. to see. You don't have to be afraid.
MY BEST DECISION EVER!.
i searched 9 different doctors before I found the awesome Dr. Cruise. No one compares to him. i came to Dr. Cruise for breast augmentation and I'm so glad I did! Not only was the procedure painless but so was the recovery. I couldn't believe how fast i healed! I scheduled to take two weeks off of work only to return six days later! SIX DAYS!
Dr. Cruise and his staff explained EVERYTHING!!! Because of their thoroughness, I NEVER EVEN BRUISED! They explain everything to do (and what not to do) before the surgery, the day of and after. Because I had such a great experience with my breast augmentation in 2009, i went back to Dr. Cruise and got a nose job just four weeks ago! And of course everything was painless and i was back to work in one week! I got only one tiny purple bruise under one eye (which i just covered with make up) It has now been one month and I have to say I LOVE ME! it makes be feel even better knowing that my nose will continue to heal in the months to come and look even better! To be quite honest, I would totally be happy if my nose were to stay the way it is now! Words can not explain the happiness i feel. It's because of Dr. Cruises fine skill sets i am so confident with myself. Thank you Dr. Cruise and his staff for walking me through the process and being there for me afterwards. Special thanks to Maribel for her quick responses every time i had questions leading up to my surgery. Maribel helped me when I called/e-mailed with questions when Dr. Cruise was busy in surgeries. Thank you for guiding me and making me feel so comfortable. If anyone decides to go with Dr. Cruise make sure you ask for Maribel! She will take care of you from beginning to end and even after that! Cruise Plastic Surgery is undoubtedly the best!!!
IS 5 STARS THE LIMIT?.
This is likely the most challenging and highest recommendation I could ever write. How do you thank someone who has so unselfishly used his brilliant skill to not only give a person back something she’d believed lost but crafted an even better result than one could hope for? Forgive me, I’m not here to criticize the work of a previous well-known plastic surgeon who has garnered a well-established reputation in the Beverly Hills area, but I have to admit to trust issues when I entered the doors of Dr. Cruise. That soon changed…
My procedure was a breast reduction/augmentation and lift (probably not the technical term but you get the idea) and the outcome was absolutely phenomenal; exceeding wishful expectations. I’m not quite sure when I developed that super-hero complex for Dr. Cruise, whether it was the seriousness of his concern and care, the incredible artwork, or the humor he used to guide me through the process. The demand on perfection of himself this doctor practices is patently obvious. Of course, the staff surrounding this wonderful institution must have trained at Nordstrom as every need was anticipated even before I thought of it and believe me, customer care/service is a study I’m well versed in.
Dr. Joseph T. Cruise has a professionalism that is only exceeded by his amazing ability as an artist. Sculptures/Artists search the world for the finest materials to mold into people. Dr. Cruise molds people into unimaginable masterpieces.
100% worth it!!!. I just had lipo on my love handles last wednesday with Dr cruise, the results turned out even better than I had hoped for! I know I am still swollen but it looks soo good I would still be happy if it stayed this way... but to know its only going to get better is mind blowing to me. Im not a big girl, Im 115lbs at 5'4 but Ive tried everything to get rid of my muffin top and nothing seemed to work. when I dieted and worked out, my legs,arms, and chest got smaller but not the love handles which almost made them even more pronounced. the word lipo sounded scary to me, especially having images of tara reids stomach in my mind and just hearing stories about "plastic surgery nightmares".Looking now at my photos of before and after truly amaze me, I actually LIKE my body and im not embarrassed to be in a bikini, in fact summer cant come fast enough!. If you are reading this in search for the BEST possible surgeon, you have found him. Searching for plastic surgeons can be hard, most people look at their board certifications, education, etc. ( which is all very important) but keep in mind while looking, every surgeon went to school, every surgeon is incredibly smart and knowledgable, but plastic surgery isnt regular medicine to me ..they NEED to be an artist and that is a talent that cant be taught. I was fortunate to have gone to a true artist who understands a womens body and how to contour it. my whole experience has been lifechanging. im 4 days post op. on a scale 0-10 being the worst, my pain level is at a 2. I would like to say thank you to Dr. Cruise, you have taken an insecurity away that was greatly affecting my personal life as well as intimate life. You have given me my confidence back and I cant thank you enough!
Excellent Surgeon and Staff!!.
I chose Dr. Cruise for my breast implant exchange surgery because both he and his staff were very knowledgeable and professional. During the time when I was deciding on a surgeon, I did a lot of research. Dr. Cruise has an amazing website that is very informative. The information I found on his website was extremely helpful in making my decision.
I have been very happy with Dr. Cruise both before the surgery and after. He has always made me feel comfortable, during my consultations, on the day of the surgery and during all my followup appointments. He is a very talented plastic surgeon.
My patient coordinator Maribel was awesome and made sure I had every question answered. She even came to see me right before my surgery because she knew I was a little nervous. Maribel has called me several times during my recovery to check on me as well.
Every time I call the office or come in for a followup appointment I feel very comfortable and welcome. I would highly recommend Cruise Plastic Surgery to anyone. The results say it all!!
