THE BREAST

Dr. Nunnery's Plastic and Reconstructive Clinic can handle all of your breast enhancement needs. For breast augmentation, Dr. Nunnery prefers to insert implants through the areola, which is the dark area surrounding the nipple. He feels this method "gives more accurate and even results." If you desire another incision site Dr. Nunnery will be happy to accommodate your wishes.

 

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery can increase your natural cup size dramatically. There are several different types of implants to choose from such as, textured, smooth, saline, silicone and more. Your breast implants can be inserted through the nipple, under the crease of the breast or through the armpit. During your consultation with Dr. Nunnery, you can tailor your breast augmentation to your specific needs and wants.

 

Breast Lift

Many women find that their breasts begin to sag as they get older. This is especially so if you have experienced pregnancy and breastfeeding. A breast lift elevates the breast and nipple to a higher position and tightens the skin around the breast. No tissue is removed during this operation but a breast implant may be added to fill out the upper portion of the breast. You can discuss your expectations with Dr. Nunnery to see if the addition of a breast implant would be right for you.

 

Breast Reduction

A breast reduction is useful for women with large, heavy breasts. Sometimes large breasts can cause skin irritations, back and neck pain, and other problems. Most patients experience significant physical relief following their breast reduction. Dr. Nunnery will remove some of the breast tissue and move the nipple higher on the body. With a breast reduction from Dr. Nunnery, you will likely be pleased with how your breasts are in better proportion to your figure.

 

BREAST RECONSTRUCTION

Breast reconstruction has become one of the most rewarding surgical procedures performed today. Each year, many women become afflicted with breast cancer. Unfortunately for some, this disease leads to the removal of one or both breasts. However, advancements in breast reconstruction have allowed doctors to actually recreate a breast that is almost identical in look and feel of a natural breast. This is accomplished through the use of breast implants and skin expansion or flap reconstruction techniques. Doctors can even perform breast reconstruction immediately after the breast removal, or mastectomy. This allows the woman to awaken from surgery and not see herself missing a breast. Not only can breast reconstruction help improve appearance; it has helped many women improve their quality of life and regain a sense of femininity. However this is a major surgical procedure, and there is a lot of information one needs to know before undergoing breast reconstruction. That is why it is important for a patient to discuss her options with not only her plastic surgeon, but also her breast surgeon.
