About Dr. Michael Brucker

Dr. Brucker is a skilled La Jolla plastic surgeon with more than 19 years in practice. Combining both technical expertise and an artist’s intuition of the human form, he provides patients with the natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing changes they seek.

In Dr. Brucker’s care, you can expect a high level of individualized attention and his personal investment in not only meeting, but exceeding your expectations. He founded his practice on the premise that offering patients more time in direct consultation, detailed information about their options, and a greater focus on their comfort creates the best results and the best patient experience. Based on a track record of excellent outcomes and a practice that is driven by referrals from happy patients, this approach has been proven most successful.

Dr. Brucker received his medical degree from Northwestern Medical School in Chicago, Illinois. He completed a significant portion of his post-degree training at the Brown University School of Medicine and in its renowned plastic surgery program. His training also included additional training in cosmetic surgery at Baker Stuzin Baker in Miami, Florida. He also developed expertise in procedures for the face, breasts, and body through years of experience as a surgical resident, plastic surgery resident, and chief resident in plastic surgery at Rhode Island Hospital.

Dr. Brucker was recently recognized as an IDEAL IMPLANT Preferred Surgeon due to his extensive expertise working with IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants, the latest technology in breast augmentation. With a unique structure surrounding these saline-filled implants, women can achieve beautiful results with zero risk of silent rupture. Dr. Brucker uses the IDEAL IMPLANT to help women look and feel their best. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, no expensive MRIs are needed, and they come with a lower risk of both capsule contracture and ruptures when compared to other implants.

"Couldn’t be happier"

“I had been wanting a [breast augmentation] since I was a teenager. Unhappy with my body image after all these years, I finally decided it was time at age 24. The surgery went so much better than I ever expected and I have no regrets. I chose the perfect doctor and couldn’t be happier. I would do it again 100% and recommend him to all of my closest family and friends who are considering getting a procedure done.”

"My breasts look beautiful . . . and very natural"

“Doctor Brucker did breast augmentation for me three months ago . . . [and] the results exceeded all my expectations. My breasts look beautiful, proportional to my frame, and very natural. Doctor Brucker and his staff helped me to choose the right size – not too big but big enough to acquire desirable shape. My husband is very happy now, even though in the beginning he was skeptical. All my girl friends envy me in a good sense and think doctor Brucker did an amazing job on me. Believe me – these women know a lot about the subject and know what they are talking about!”

"Exceeded my expectations"

“Dr. Brucker and his staff have successfully done both a breast lift and augmentation plus a tummy tuck with lipo on me. Each procedure was done one year apart and they exceeded my expectations both times. For the first time in 30 years I am able to wear a two piece bathing suit with confidence. As a RN myself, I appreciate quality patient care, Dr. Brucker and every single person from reception to hands on personnel in the OR are caring and professional. A BIG thank you from one grateful patient.”
