Breast Augmentation Denver

Do you find yourself wishing for larger, more youthful or better shaped breasts?
Many women consider breast augmentation to improve their figure. For breasts that are naturally small or that have lost volume after pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss, breast augmentation surgery will noticeably improve the appearance of your breasts. There are many options to consider as one size does not fit all. Breast augmentation is the number one surgery Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Squires performs and the photos and reviews speak for themselves. Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure performed in an accredited outpatient surgery center with board certified anesthesiologists. Dr. Squires is an innovator in the “24 hour breast augmentation recovery procedure”. That’s right, most patients are able to drive and return to light activities in one day. Ask about the details in your complimentary consultation.
Why You May Want Breast Augmentation Surgery
  • Size
  •      -It can be as simple as that—you would just like to have larger breasts. You're not alone — this is the number one reason that women decide to have breast augmentation surgery. If that's the case, Denver Breast Surgeon, Dr. Squires can help you decide the exact increase in size that will give you the figure that you want.
  • Breast Cancer
  •      -You may want breast augmentation during breast reconstruction procedures following breast cancer surgery, or after preventive mastectomies performed because they have a strong family history of breast cancer. A mastectomy is the surgical removal of one or both breasts. Breast reconstruction may involve implants or a transfer of fat and tissue from your abdomen.
  • Asymmetry
  •      -If your breasts are asymmetrical, or malformed, you may want to have breast augmentation to balance your breasts and make it easier to find clothes that fit.
  • Weight loss
  •      -Weight loss can cause significant changes to the size and shape of a woman's breasts. If you've lost a lot of weight and your breasts are deflated, breast augmentation surgery can help you to gain the shape that you want.
  • Post-pregnancy
  •      -Maybe you would like to have a breast augmentation as part of a Mommy Makeover — a combination of procedures that Dr. Squires can do to help restore your body to its pre-pregnancy state. Your Mommy Makeover could include a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift or other procedures as well as breast augmentation.
  • Breast Shape
  •      -If you want rounder, fuller breasts, you may decide to have a breast lift or breast augmentation. Dr. Squires can explain the difference, and help you decide on the right surgical plan.

Differences Between Silicone and Saline Implants
Silicone implants are made of a gel contained inside a shell that mimics normal breast tissue. As such, these are generally thought to look and feel more natural. They are customized to match the size and shape you want prior to your surgery, then they are placed inside a pocket that Dr. Squires creates during the procedure.

Saline implants consist of a silicone outer layer and are filled with sterile saltwater. It comes in a variety of sizes, each of which can hold a different range of volume. The implant is empty when it is placed inside your breast and then is gradually filled with the saltwater solution until it reaches the right size. Saline implants are thought to give the breasts a firm and bouncier look.

Both implants are approved by the FDA and are widely considered to be very safe for patients. Silicone implants are only approved for patients over 22 years of age.
Most of our patients are able to return to normal activities within 2-3 days and more strenuous activities within 3-4 weeks following the breast enlargement procedure.The FDA has approved the use of silicone breast implants. Dr. Squires has been a participant of the Silicone Study for several years and offers expertise in implanting silicone and saline breast implants.
