Breast Augmentation

Beautiful breasts, they are a symbol of femininity and remain a fixation among the human condition for both genders. The ideal breast is one that is round with youthful and distinct curves, delicately balanced, and supple Many women tend to lose the volume and shape of their breasts due to pregnancy, age, weight loss, or simply because they have always lacked the breast tissue that creates a sexy silhouette physique.

Breast Augmentation is the number one plastic surgery procedure being performed in the United States, and is sought out by many women to correct disparity in breast asymmetry, to restore volume, or purely to further enhance the feminine structure of a woman’s body. At bod:evolve, our doctors are two of the most experienced plastic surgeons in Colorado and in the nation when dealing with breast augmentation procedures.

Dr. Broadway has been involved in the testing of high cohesive silicone gel breast implants for several years and he is the most experienced surgeon in Denver with this product. High Cohesive silicone gel breast implants have only been available to most surgeons since 2007, but because of Dr. Broadway’s reputation, and the beautiful results his patients attain after surgery, he was selected by Sientra breast implant manufacturing to participate in a study that has allowed him to implant gel implants for nearly 8 years. Dr. Broadway is also one of the top 100 surgeons in the U.S. for breast implant manufacturer Mentor’s high cohesive silicone gel breast implant.

Dr. Millard has been featured and quoted in several television segments discussing the differences between saline and high cohesive silicone gel breast implants. Dr. Millard has performed hundreds of breast augmentation procedures in his career with stunning and dramatic results.

Should you choose to receive breast augmentation at bod:evolve, our doctors will explain to you in great detail all of the options available in regards to breast implant type, style and size. Our facility provides all of the tools necessary to make the most informed decision allowing you to achieve the most beautiful result. You will have the opportunity to try on breast implants as well as visually see a simulation of your breast augmentation result using innovative 3-D medical imaging technology.

 
 

At bod:evolve, our patients results are natural, delicately balanced and proportionate to the women’s body structure allowing for an active and dynamic lifestyle, yet maintaining beautiful feminine curves.

The surgery for breast augmentation will take approximately 1 ½ hours and is performed at Renewal Medical Center, a state-of-the-art surgical facility that is owned and operated by Dr. Millard and Dr. Broadway. Renewal Surgery Center is located in the same structure as bod:evolve helping to make you surgical experience as easy and pleasant as possible.

Breast augmentation is a major procedure, and you should expect to feel tired and sore for a few days after your surgery. The healing process will take some time, and our staff will educate you on recovery issues such as medication, bandage removal, and caring for your incisions.

Each person's body heals differently, but most patients are able to return to work the week after surgery. You may drive once you have been off your pain medication for 24 hours, and you should avoid physical stimulation of the breast for a few weeks after surgery (usually 3-4 weeks). Your operative scars will also take time to blend in with the rest of your body.

As a prospective patient, what should I know about breast augmentation?

When considering cosmetic surgery, you have the right as a patient to know all the possible risks associated with a given procedure. Any surgical operation has risks associated with it, but augmentation mammoplasty is a well-researched procedure and the risk of complications is quite low. When you meet with our doctors, be frank and honest about your concerns. Our doctors will be happy to speak openly about their experience with the procedure, and the possibility of complications during and following surgery.

With augmentation mammoplasty, there is the possibility of excessive bleeding following the operation, which could cause increased swelling and pain in the affected area. If excessive bleeding becomes a problem, it may be necessary to have another operation in order to stop the bleeding. Excessive bleeding, however, is a rare complication.

It is also possible for the treated area to become infected; for this reason, we will provide you with intravenous antibiotics during the surgery, and oral antibiotics afterwards. The majority of possible infections are mild ones. Other risks include capsular contracture, where a scar or capsule may tighten around the implant. This is treated by removing part or some of the scar tissue. It is possible that nerves around the breast may be cut or damaged before the insertion of the implant. If this occurs, the nerves will usually take some time to recover. Another complication is if the saline leaks from a saline breast implant. This is not a medical issue, as the saline fluid is a body-friendly liquid that is absorbed without any difficulty. The implant, however, will need to be replaced.

After receiving a breast augmentation, it is recommended that you continue receiving routine mammograms. Mammographic technicians can account for breast implants in their readings, so that an implant does not affect the reliability of a mammogram.
