|1) The Submuscular PlacementThe breast implant is placed behind the chest wall muscle (pectoral muscle). This placement feels and looks more “natural” because the implant is further away from the skin. It may require a longer surgery and recovery period, but typically results in less capsular contracture (scar tissue formation), and easier imaging of the breast with mammography.|
|2) The Subglandular PlacementA subglandular placement for the breast implant behind the breast tissue offers shorter surgery, less pain and discomfort and briefer recovery, since muscles are left intact and only skin and fat are cut. Larger implants may also be used. This placement may result in more palpable implants, more capsular contracture, and more difficult imaging of the breast with mammography. Keep in mind that the only thing supporting the implant is the skin and breast tissue.|
Museum District Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will discuss with you the pros and cons of the two possible implant placement sites, and recommend the site that best meets your needs.
Also, you should be aware that breast implants don’t always last forever. They often require a future operation to remove and replace the original implant.
