PHYSICAL MARVEL - On human growth hormone by Dr. Brueck, plastic surgeon

We have Marvel comic book heroes. They surround us each and every day. We are very familiar with them since they have been popularized in movies of late.

In real life many of us strive to be that “Marvel specimen”. Many people have resorted to the miracle drug; HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE.

Many of my patients have asked me about it in the past and I did some research on it but for some reason I never pulled the trigger. I guess I decided to age sans growth hormone.

They do say sometimes that aging can be graceful and beautiful, I don’t know why but for some people that seems to be the case.

A recent study done at Johns Hopkins University showed that growth hormone levels did NOT affect the life span positively or negatively.

The lead researcher in this study was Dr. Roberto Salvatori, in the department of endocrinology. He found that even people with severely DEFICIENT levels of growth hormone appeared to live as long as people with normal levels.

There was a similar study done at Stanford University in 2007 that encompassed 220 healthy individuals. They found no evidence that growth hormone levels positive or minus promoted anti aging.

I guess we have to be a little more cautious when we sit down at the breakfast table and have an extra bowl of the breakfast of champions.


When it comes to aging, plastic surgery can't turn back the clock. But it can turn back the clock "face". You don't have to look any older than you feel. Let's talk about it. Call me at 239-939-5233 or check out my web site at
