Philosophy

Achieving the natural-looking results every patient wants is something Dr. Joseph Grzeskiewicz strives for with each procedure he performs, whether it’s breast augmentation or breast reduction. “I enjoy performing breast surgery the most and I would consider it to be my forte,” says the doctor. “With breast augmentations, I use a dual-plane technique for implant placement, which in my opinion, allows for a more naturallooking result. I try to be as meticulous as I can with the procedure, which is a very personalized experience where every woman has a different body shape and different needs, goals and dreams. The goal is to make my patients feel great about their bodies once again.”

In practice for nearly two decades, Dr. Joseph Grzeskiewicz provides cosmetic rejuvenation from head to toe. A member of multiple plastic surgery societies, as well as a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Dr. G (as his patients call him) delivers specialized expertise in breast and body contouring, but also dedicates a large portion of his practice to providing natural-looking results with nonsurgical injectable treatments.

About My Practice:

What is your approach to treating patients?

I am really all about the patient—they are the reason why I do what I do. I am a physician and healer first, then a plastic surgeon and a specialist. I’ve devoted my efforts to developing skills in plastic surgery, but the ultimate goal is still to heal and complete the human being. I just do it through aesthetic surgery.

What is your operating room style?

I am very meticulous, to the point where I’ve actually been criticized, but it is important to me that I get the best result. I don’t cut corners or keep my eye on the clock—I’m not afraid to take extra time. I stay very focused on the procedure, but I’m also comfortable, calm and in control.

About Me:

Why did you become a plastic surgeon?

I had an analytical math background before medicine, where I concentrated on theory and logic. I also studied art, where I was able to think creatively. Plastic surgery was a great mix for me—a blend of the artistic and scientific that allowed me to focus on my strengths.

What do you love most about your job?

The opportunity to make an impact on people’s lives. I can’t tell you what a great feeling it is when a patient comes back to see me post-op and suddenly they have blossomed. They have a new hairstyle or they’re wearing different clothing; they just feel great about themselves, and that’s why I do what I do.

Dr. G is one of a kind. He genuinely cares about his patients and their well being. I had such a great experience under his care. First, he actually asked me to lose weight for the best results which I admire because we became a team for my new look. Had I not lost some weight I don't think these results would be the same. Plus he gave me choices of plans for food and this taught me how to eat and stop yo yo dieting. That was a life changer. Very happy with my new body and would recommend Dr. G to everybody for whatever their needs are.

FAQ's

Q. How is breast augmentation a better procedure today than it was years ago?

What our experts say:

Breast augmentation remains one of the most popular cosmetic procedures perfomed with over 300, 000 of them done in the US each year.  One of the most significant advances has been improvement in both the materials and the design of the implants themselves. With current technology there is lower risk of capsule contracture, rupture, and rippling and other surface irregularities, and this all translates to a lower likelihood of returning to the OR for problems.  There are also improvements in the design of the implants such that we now have shaped form-stable implants as well as round implants, and we have more than one company making them with slight variations between them.  The fact that there are now three implant manufactures in the US has helped create competition and disruptive change, and this advances the science and technology of the implants.  Furthermore, each company offers very robust "warranty" programs for their implants, and this makes the operation less of a financial risk too.  Little has changed in the landscape of saline implants, in fact, I would say they are sort of fading out; at least they are in my practice.  The silicone gel filled implants have improved dramatically, though.  In addition to the implants themselves, I would also say that our understanding of the anatomy of the breast and the techniques of breast augmentation have evolved and become more refined.  Even advances like the Keller funnel have improved the way we do the operation.  We have more ways to deal with differnet types of bodies and situations and more ways to deal with complications like capsule contracture too.  All in all, I think that if you look at the details of breast augmentation instead of just considering it as a "commodity" - merely putting in an implant to make the breasts bigger - you will find that the operation has improved dramatically over what it was, even 10 years ago.

Q. I'm interested in breast augmentation at age 49. Is age a factor?

What our experts say:

For me, age itself is not a factor, rather the health of each patient as well as her needs and goals are much more important considerations.  Some of my 40 - 60 year old patients are actually better candidates for surgery than ones in their 20's!  One thing I do find related to age, however, is that goals often change, and the surgeon must be very attentive to each patient's individual goals and stage in life so that he or she can advise the patient appropriately.  One of my favorite patients was a 64 year old lady, who came in with  her very dashing and dapper husband, to ask about breast augmentation so that she would feel better in her competitive ballroom dancing gowns.  She had a very reasonable augmentation with 250 cc implants and looked and felt fabulous after her surgery.  Life is what each of us makes of it, at any age.  What is it that they say?  "50 is the new 30!"

Q. Is it possible for the breast to get bigger after surgery?

What our experts say:

Your breast tissues can still respond to the same factors that any other normal breast tissue will respond to after breast augmentation surgery.  Thus, hormonal changes, such as with pregnancy, breastfeeding or hormone treatments, or  weight gain can all cause some increase in the size of your breasts.  Some of these changes may be temporary, while some of them may be permanent.  This is one of the reasons why I advise my paients that while it is uncommon for ladies to have reoperation on their breasts in the future for this reason, it is not unheard of, and no breast augmentation should be thought of as an absolutely permanent thing that can't change over time or that won't ever need to be altered or corrected for some reason in the future.

Q. My doctor says during the next few months my implants will move upwards to give me a full roundness at the top of my breasts. How does this happen?

What our experts say:

Typically breast implants tend to settle a bit after surgery, and the slight overcorrected fullness at the upper pole that is often seen tends to decrease as tissues loosen up and soften. Thus, it is very unusual for the implants to migrate upwards and create more fullness over time.  That is, unless there is some capsule contracture, in which case what we typically see is firmness or hardness of the involved breast(s), increased roundness of the breast shape, and increased fullness in the upper part of the breast.  However, this is not the desired kind of fullness usually.  If you feel as though your breasts aren't full enough after augmentation, you may need to revisit the issue with your surgeon and consider larger implants, higher profile implants, or a lifing procedure to increase the tone of the breasts.

Q. Can you treat asymmetry in the breasts with augmentation alone?

What our experts say:

Each breast augmentation is different, thus each case is individualized.  In cases with asymmetry, as long as it is relatively mild and can be camouglaged by volume or dimension of the implant, the asymmetry can ususally be corrected with augmentation alone using differing implants between the two breasts.  The limitation in doing this however, is that the formula is not always one of simple volume adjustment.  That is to say, just because one breast may have 50 cc more volume than the other, doesn't mean the correction can be accomplished easily by just using a 50 cc larger implant.  Because implants have not only volume to consider, but also three dimensions - width, length, and height (with round implants width and "length" are really the same), you will often see differences in these variables even if the volume adjustment corrects the difference in volume.  For example, even though the volume in a bra is now equal when a 350 cc implant is on the right and a 400 cc implant is on the left, the left breast may now project outward more and appear fuller or it may be wider than the right, and this creates its own asymmetry.  Thus, the correction of asymmetry with implants alone requires a keen artistic eye and good analytic judgment on the part of the surgeon.  In addition, this does nothing to correct any asymmetry in the position of the nipples.  In order to do that, one must usually add some type of lifting procedure too, at least to the lower breast/nipple.  Usually in cases of mild nipple asymmetry it either improves sufficiently with augmentation alone, or the patient and I decide to accept the mild asymmetry as a reasonable trade-off for a less complicated procedure.  Not every asymmetry NEEDS to be conrrected; you are really the boss when it comes to that.

Q. How are injectable treatments a large part of your practice?

What our experts say:

Nonsurgical options such as injectables allow me to offer a broader spectrum of treatment to my patients. A lot of people don’t want or don’t need surgery, so if I can use nonsurgical options to meet their goal, I think it’s a win-win situation. I am registered as an ExpertInjectorTM, and I’m also a faculty member on P.A.L.E.T.T.E., a national workshop faculty that teaches advanced injection techniques to other surgeons and medical professionals.
