Proudly serving Denver, Littleton, Highlands Ranch and Nearby Areas of Colorado

Highlands Ranch Breast Implant OptionsYour Highlands Ranch breast augmentation procedure should be designed to ideally complement your body while meeting all of your aesthetic desires. In order to accomplish this, board-certified Colorado plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Zwiebel offers a range of breast augmentation options that can be configured to the exact specifications most likely to produce optimal results. During your breast augmentation consultation at our Metro Denver area plastic surgery office, Dr. Zwiebel will discuss all of your options to help make sure your procedure produces the look of your dreams.

Breast Implant Options

Dr. Zwiebel offers both saline and silicone breast implants. Saline breast implants are filled after they have been placed. This may allow for a smaller incision and for micro adjustments to be made to volume after implants have been inserted. Saline implants are the only implants available to women under the age of 22.

Silicone implants do well when placed above chest muscles since they tend to look and feel more like natural breast tissue. Gummy bear implants in particular may produce a more natural appearance, though this and other silicone options are only available for women over the age of 22.

Both breast implant types offer specific advantages which will be discussed in detail during your breast augmentation consultation.

Breast Implant Incisions & Placement

If you are considering breast augmentation in Colorado, call board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Zwiebel at 303-470-3400 to schedule a consultation and learn all about your optionsOur Highlands Ranch plastic surgeon offers three breast augmentation incision options:

  • Periariolar – around the dark skin of the areola
  • Inframammary – along the crease where breast and chest meet
  • Transaxillary – in the armpit

As with breast implants, each incision offers specific benefits and will be better suited for different needs. Which one is right for yours will be decided as you and Dr. Zwiebel plan your breast augmentation procedure.

All three incision options allow for one of two breast implant placement locations:

  • Subglandular – beneath the breast tissue but above the chest muscles
  • Submuscular – beneath both breast tissue and chest muscles

Considerations such as how much breast tissue is naturally present and lifestyle factors will play a considerable role in determining which breast implant placement option is ideal for you. Dr. Zwiebel will cover all of these issues to ensure your breast implants are placed in the location that will produce the longest-lasting and most attractive results.
