Incision Options for Breast Augmentation

/>At my practice, patients interested in breast augmentation typically have two incision options available to them: the inframammary incision (underneath the breast) and the periareolar incision (around the areola). Some surgeons also offer a transumbilical incision (in the belly button) and a transaxillary incision (in the armpit); however, I do not recommend either of these approaches as the former could […]

What Are My Breast Implant Options?

It is no longer a round world when it comes to breast implant options. In my practice, I offer many different breast implant options, including traditional silicone gel implants, highly cohesive or form-stable cohesive silicone gel “anatomic style” implants, and saline breast implants. Selecting the right breast implants will depend on a number of factors unique to every individual. During […]

Breast Lift Scars

During breast lift surgery, incisions will typically be made circumferentially around the areola, vertically in the lower aspect of the breast, and horizontally along the inframammary fold of the breast. Like all surgical procedures requiring incisions, the formation of scars after breast lift surgery is inevitable. Though the appearance and texture of scarring will vary depending on factors such as […]

My Unique Technique for Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery has traditionally (and still commonly today) been performed using an inferior pedicle wise approach. With this technique, most of the tissue removed comes from the top of the breast while tissue on the bottom of the breast is saved to support circulation to the nipple. The issue, however, is that the pull of gravity impacts the breasts […]

Recovery from Male Breast Reduction Surgery

In my last blog post, I revealed my unique, less-invasive approach to male breast reduction. One of the many advantages of this innovative technique is the minimal downtime that typically ensues (or doesn’t, if you will). As a result of such small incisions being utilized, stitches are generally not needed, and the entire recovery process is often quick and relatively […]

My Less-Invasive Approach to Male Breast Reduction

On average, I perform male breast reduction to treat gynecomastia about five times a month, as it is a very popular procedure at my practice. The technique I utilize is best defined as chest wall sculpting with a “pull-through” or “mini-strip” excision of the “fibrous” gynecomastia tissue. Essentially, this approach is a very detailed and focused liposuction of the chest […]

Am I a Candidate for Male Breast Reduction?

Gynecomastia, or the abnormal development of enlarged male breast tissue, is a common condition many males experience. Both teens and adults are bothered by this condition, especially men in their forties who have begun to develop excessive breast tissue or have been struggling with the condition since they were in high school. Depending on its severity, gynecomastia can often lead […]
