Breast Augmentation (Augmentation Mammaplasty)

Overview / Procedure FAQs / Post-Operative Instructions
Many women, like you, desire fuller breasts. It may be a wish you've had since adolescence, or following pregnancy and/or nursing.

A 2-hour procedure, performed through small, hidden incisions around the areola or in the inframammary crease can give you the fullness you desire, improve your proportion, and expand your clothing options. More importantly, it can boost your confidence, changing your approach toward both your social interactions and career.

There are two FDA-approved options for breast augmentation -saline implants or silicone gel-filled implants. At your initial consultation with one of Denver's few female, board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Tanya Atagi will discuss the pros and cons related to each.
