The modern ideal for the female figure is the hourglass, with wider chest, narrower waist, and wider hips and buttocks. Breast augmentation and butt augmentation are both popular procedures for women looking to achieve that type of attractive feminine figure.
Breast augmentation is a perpetual favorite in plastic surgery procedures, always either the first or second most popular procedure in statistics, but butt augmentation has not always been popular.
In fact, there were so few butt augmentation procedures performed in 1997 that when the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) first collected its statistics,...

Rippling can be one of the tell-tale signs of breast augmentation, and it not only reveals the presence of breast implants, but can lead to unattractive results. Rippling used to be a common complication of breast augmentation, but innovations in breast implant design and changes in breast augmentation technique have made it less common than in the past.
There are two causes that typically result in rippling after breast augmentation. Breast implant rippling is the most common cause, and it’s normally associated with saline breast implants. An underfilled saline breast implant is the most likely culprit, so it’s normal to overfill...

One of the exciting things about breast augmentation is how many options you have to customize the procedure so you can get the results you desire. Breast implants alone come with many different options, so you can select the best breast implants for you.
Breast Implant Size
Breast implants come in many sizes in quite small intervals, so it’s possible to get breast implants that help you achieve the exact breast size you desire after surgery. You can even use breast implants to make unevenly sized breasts more equal.
Selecting the right size of breast implants is a very personal decision and should be made in close...

Most people who seek out a rhinoplasty – more commonly known as a nose job – are frustrated by the way their nose protrudes and throws off the balance of their facial profile. However, few people consider that the position of the chin makes a big difference in the appearance of your nose. If your chin is in a good position, it will make your nose appear smaller, and your overall face will look more proportionate.
When you come in for a rhinoplasty consultation, Dr. Grossman or Dr. Capraro will also evaluate your chin position to determine how a chin implant could further improve your facial appearance. If you have a “retrusive” chin...

There are many doctors offering cosmetic and plastic surgery services as part of their practice. But how do you know whether a doctor has undergone the training necessary to deliver the exceptional outcome you deserve? Due to declining reimbursement rates from insurance companies, an increasing number of doctors in other specialties have begun offering elective cosmetic procedures to augment their incomes.

If you are not careful, you may end up having your procedure performed by a doctor who has no formal training in plastic surgery and has not met any requirements which demonstrate excellence in the...

Otoplasty is a facial plastic surgery procedure performed to reshape large or protruding ears. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your ears, Denver plastic surgeons Dr. John A. Grossman and Dr. Philippe A. Capraro can alter their size to make them more proportional with the rest of your head.

While patients of any age can choose to undergo otoplasty, the procedure is most commonly performed on children between the ages of 4 and 14. Children can often be cruel to one another, and it is common for children with large, protruding ears to endure harsh teasing...

The relationship between your nose and your other facial features is very important. A nose that is well-shaped and proportional can balance your facial profile, creating a harmony with other features such as the chin or cheek bones. However, a nose that is too large, too small, or oddly shaped can detract from these other features. In order to restore proper facial balance, Denver plastic surgeons Dr. John A. Grossman and Dr. Philippe A. Capraro may perform a rhinoplasty procedure to reshape your nose.

In some cases, multiple facial plastic surgery procedures may...

When performed by a highly skilled board certified plastic surgeon, a face lift can achieve subtle, natural looking results that make you look rejuvenated and refreshed. But in the hands of a less skilled and experienced surgeon, your face lift procedure may not deliver the outcome you desire. Unfortunately, it is not as easy to conceal the results of a poorly performed facelift as it is to conceal the results of a subpar breast or body contouring procedure. In order to ensure that your face lift is performed properly, you will need to choose your plastic surgeon carefully...

An increasing number of men have been visiting our Denver plastic surgery practice in recent years. Many of these patients have turned to Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro for help achieving a more toned, sculpted body contour. If you have one or more stubborn pockets of fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise, liposuction can help you achieve the chiseled appearance you desire.

While the liposuction procedure is essentially the same when performed on men and women, there are certain issues that must be addressed when treating male patients. Fat accumulates...
