Breast augmentation, or breast enlargement, creates a larger, shapelier bust for women who desire a more pronounced feminine silhouette. There are a variety of reasons for considering breast augmentation. Many women feel insecure or self-conscious because their breasts lack volume or sag. For women whose breasts are different sizes, breast augmentation can help balance the bust line.
The procedure starts with making an incision around the nipple-areola, under the breast or in the armpit in an inconspicuous manner. Because each patient is treated as an individual and the procedure is customized to meet specific needs, the actual incisions may vary in each case. After the incisions are made, a saline or silicone filled implant of pre-determined size is placed beneath the underlying muscle or the breast tissue. Dr. Glunk will explain the reasoning for precise placement beforehand to decide what is best for you.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation and any post-surgery pain is controlled by oral medication or the revolutionary ON-Q pump which can nearly eliminate post-operative pain. Breast augmentation patients may benefit from breast lift to accentuate the aesthetic. For more information, contact Dr. Glunk today!
Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a procedure that aims to revitalize sagging or shapeless breasts. Some women's breasts naturally lack volume, while others find their breasts lose elasticity with age. Breast lift can correct these concerns and enliven your bust line.
Before the procedure begins, Dr. Glunk will determine the best placement for incisions to accommodate your needs and expectations. Many women can be lifted through incisions around the nipple-areola. Other women may require lifting through incisions under the breast. Excess tissue is removed as necessary to create the desired contour and the nipple-areolar complex is repositioned and the desired contour is created.
Depending on your goals, Dr. Glunk may recommend the use of breast implants to create the best results. To learn more about breast lift and other breast surgeries, contact Dr. Glunk today.
Breast reduction is a reconstructive procedure that is used to create a more proportionate breast line that is comfortable and practical. Women with large breasts often complain of physical ailments such as back pain and neck pain. Breast reduction aims to relieve women of the inconvenience and reshape the breasts to be more manageable.
The procedure entails making incisions around the nipple-areola and under the breast crease. From these areas, the doctor can remove excess tissue to redefine a more favorable shape and size.
Breast reduction using only Liposuction is an alternative that eliminates the need for large incisions.
Liposuction breast reduction avoids the scars of traditional breast reduction methods. Liposuction can achieve a significant reduction and a gratifying lift. Liposuction breast reduction reduces postoperative pain and decreases recovery time allowing a quicker return to normal activities with minimal scarring.
Gynecomastia is a male-specific procedure that removes excess tissue from the chest or breast area. Excess male breast tissue is attributed to either fat deposits or overactive male mammary glands. In a majority of cases, ultrasonic liposuction is employed to reduce the size and sculpt the shape of the male breast to a more natural contour. Rarely, patients may require larger incisions. Dr. Glunk will discuss your options in depth with you to determine the most successful technique.
