Gynecomastia, the medical name for male breasts, can often be treated through lifestyle changes such as increased and enhanced exercise. However, in many cases, gynecomastia will self-correct even without these efforts – particularly if the condition is linked to hormonal changes.
Common causes of gynecomastia include:
Excessive alcohol consumption
Studies reported by the National Institutes of Health suggest that as many as 95% of gynecomastia cases that occur during puberty go away on their own within one to three years. When the… Read Full Post

Dr. Brueck put me at ease immediately upon meeting him. He is very knowledgeable and never pressures you to make a decision, but advises you according to your unique concerns. If he doesn't think a procedure will produce the desired results he will tell you in no uncertain terms. His bedside manner is second to none. I had him perform a Quicklift of face and neck and I am thrilled with the results! His nurse Chi is a treasure.

In generally good physical health

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure. It can be used to remove up to 11 pounds of fat from targeted areas of the body, but it is neither safe nor effective… Read Full Post

To say we live in times of uncertainty and confusion is an understatement. Recently several patients have asked me about "board certified cosmetic surgeons." Many patients make their rounds and when talking to them directly many of the "board certified cosmetic surgeons" were not certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons but by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. So now what is the difference?
A study done at Vanderbilt reviewed the residency training of 342 A.B.C.S. certified physicians. When a doctor is board certified what does it mean? Every board has criteria that doctors have to meet to be designated "board… Read Full Post

I highly recommend Dr. Brueck. I had a lower face and neck lift. In the initial consultation Dr. Brueck made sure I understood what the surgery could and could not achieve. He also said that having my neck done and not just my face would make a greater overall impact, saying there would be an aesthetic disconnect if I had a nice firm face but loose, sagging neck skin. I could see what he meant and changed my original plan to include the neck.
On the day of surgery I was nervous. But everyone - Dr. Brueck, the nurses, the anesthesiologist, even administrative staff was very kind, attentive and gentle, so important in keeping my nerves… Read Full Post
