-- Before your breast augmentation procedure, your plastic surgeon will discuss your implant placement
options. These options are:
- Subglandular - under the breast tissue, but above the chest muscle
- Submuscular - under both the breast tissue and the chest muscle
The placement option best for your body will be based on your aesthetic desires, natural anatomy, and other considerations made by your plastic surgeon.
Subglandular placement requires sufficient breast tissue to cover the implant. If you have sufficient breast tissue, this option may reduce both surgical and recovery time. It is also the best option for women who engage in strenuous athletic activities.
Implants placed above the chest muscle may look more rounded and less anatomical. This is largely dependent on the size of the implant in relation to the amount of natural breast tissue present.
Subglandular placement lacks support from the chest muscles. Due to this, these implants may cause sagging, and implant imperfections such as rippling and wrinkling may be more obvious. It is also possible that the implants will be able to be touched, producing a less natural feel.
Submuscular placement is better for women with insufficient breast tissue to cover an implant. This placement option requires the manipulation of chest muscles which may increase both surgical and recovery time.
Submuscular implants are protected and supported by chest muscle. This often produces a more natural look and feel. The additional covering also hides implant imperfections and helps reduce implant sagging.
In the end, the look and feel you desire should be the top priority of your plastic surgeon. Choose a plastic surgeon that provides you with the individual attention and care you deserve to help ensure you are provided with the implant option that best meets your goals.
