The breast augmentation is an exceptionally flexible and customizable procedure. This is one of its chief appeals to Denver-area women. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Grossman Plastic Surgery are capable of using the breast augmentation procedure to meet your goals.

However, this means it’s crucial that you have a clear understanding of your goals. As with everything in life, the choices you make before your breast augmentation will have trade-offs. Each option comes with unique advantages and disadvantages. The right choices maximize the former while minimizing the latter. And most importantly, the right choices are made in accord with your priorities and goals. We can help you make those choices, but only you know what you value most.

For an example of the dynamic we’re talking about, let’s consider breast implant placement. This is one of the first choices you’ll make during the breast augmentation process.

You’ll have two choices: a sub-glandular placement or a sub-muscular placement. The first reduces recovery time and allows for a larger implant size, but the results look less natural and you’re at greater risk of capsular contracture. Meanwhile, the second requires more recovery time and constricts the maximum size of the implant, but the results are more natural and the implant has greater support.

The Best Decision for Your Body

Which is the right choice? The answer is that neither option is right for every single patient. Your choice will be determined by your priorities.

Are you concerned about returning to work as soon as possible and making your implants look natural and inconspicuous? Then the sub-muscular placement is probably right for you. On the other hand, if you’re considering a significantly larger implant size and feel that you have ample time to dedicate to recovery, sub-glandular is a viable choice for you.

And this decision calculus extends to all of your breast augmentation choices, including:

This is why we always urge patients to have a crystal clear understanding of what they hope to achieve with a breast augmentation. Such an understanding will make these decisions significantly easier, especially when you have the assistance of our board-certified plastic surgeons.
