Our board-certified plastic surgeon is extensively trained in aesthetics and specializes in Quick Recovery™ Breast Augmentation, a dynamic procedure that improves upon traditional methods of breast enhancement by minimizing the amount of tissue damage, post-operative discomfort, and recovery time for patients. This technique has remarkably allowed 95 percent of women to return to normal daily activities within 24 hours. Patients choose their preferred location of incisions (underarm, breast crease, or around the areola), implant type, and implant placement for treatment that is custom-tailored to their needs.
Dr. Joe perform over 300 breast augmentation procedures per year and have performed 6000+ in total. He has helped thousands of women achieve beautiful, natural-looking breasts, making him one of the most experienced breast augmentation surgeons in the Midwest. Dr. Joe speaks internationally on the subject and his knowledge on breast implants and breast augmentation has been published in peer review and aesthetic surgery journals.
Among our plastic surgeon’s extensive research are studies exploring which surgical techniques can produce the highest level of long-term patient satisfaction after breast augmentation, as well as whether certain practices can yield a quicker recovery process. In fact, you can read the articles Dr. Joe has authored on performing breast augmentation without incurring a visible incision, and achieving a 24-hour recovery period, in The Aesthetic Surgery Journal below:
• Transaxillary Nonendoscopic Subpectoral Augmentation Mammaplasty: A 10-Year Experience With Gel vs. Saline in 2000 Patients—With Long-Term Patient Satisfaction Measured by the BREAST-Q.”
• “Achieving Quicker Recovery After Breast Augmentation”
95 percent of women interviewed after the procedure returned to normal daily activities within 24 hours
Our plastic surgeon performs an innovative form of breast enhancement called the Dual Plane Breast Augmentation, a procedure that can simultaneously add volume and lift to breasts affected by minor ptosis (breast sag), while avoiding the usual degree of scarring that results from a classic breast lift. The surgery does not require significant external incisions, except for a small incision within the breast fold. Women who undergo this “internal” breast lift can achieve beautiful, natural-looking breast enlargement and improved projection without extensive surgical scarring.
Dr. Joe explores this innovative procedure further in an article he authored for The Aesthetic Surgery Journal, in which he measures the technique’s effectiveness in treating patients with a minimal amount of ptosis (drooping). Read about Dr. Joe’s findings by following the link below:
• “Dual-Plane Breast Augmentation for Minimal Ptosis Pseudoptosis (the ‘In-Between’ Patient)”
The dual plane can help some patients with minor drooping avoid a classic breast lift.
In addition to being in private practice, Dr. Joe is also a Clinical Professor at the University of Minnesota Cleft Palate Clinics and a former Chief of Surgery at Fairview Southdale Hospital. He belongs to many professional organizations, including the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the Rhinoplasty Society, and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), from which he once served as an official spokesperson. Additionally, he has been recognized with a number of awards, including “Top Doctor” by Minneapolis St. Paul magazine. Our Minneapolis plastic surgeon was inspired to pursue a career in plastic surgery after a six-month volunteer trip to San Lucas Tolimán, Guatemala. He frequently works with international aid organizations and commonly returns to South America on medical mission trips, where he takes great pride in helping children affected by cleft lips, cleft palates, and burns.
