The team at Carolinas Center for Plastic Surgery is dedicated to helping you feel confident and comfortable in your own skin. Breast alterations are some of the most commonly requested cosmetic procedures to build this confidence.
Dr. Peter Klainer offers the following procedures to enhance the natural beauty of your breasts.
Breast augmentation or breast enhancement aims to create larger breasts while maintaining a soft, proportionate and natural appearance. In this procedure, three incisions are typically used for the placement of the breast implants: • Periareolar (under the nipple) • Inframammary (under the breast) • Transaxillary (under the arm) Patients will choose between saline (salt water) implants or silicone gel implants.
If you want to leave the size alone, but could use a little help to reverse the effects of gravity, a breast lift may be what you desire. A breast lift helps to lift and reshape the breasts without altering the size. There are several different approaches to breast lifts, and Dr. Klainer can determine the best one for you based on your breast size and shape.
If you are a larger-breasted individual, you may eventually experience some drooping in your breasts. This can often lead to symptoms such as back and neck pain, shoulder notching and rashes underneath the breasts. By electing to have a breast reduction procedure, you may reverse these symptoms and enjoy a more youthful, perky breast position.
Gynecomastia is a condition in which the male breast possesses extra tissue. With a male breast reduction surgery, the condition can be reversed, and the male breast can be reduced and redefined to proper proportions. There are two techniques that may be used: liposuction and excision.
