Once you decide to move forward with your breast augmentation, you will have a series of decisions to make about the details of your procedure. Breast augmentation placement is one of the most important decisions you will need to consider. Submuscular placement involves inserting your breast implants below, or under, your chest muscles.
Submuscular breast implant placement comes with some distinct advantages, including:
- Reduced risk of rippling
- Reduced risk of capsular contracture
- Less implant visibility
- Strong internal support
If you have thin natural breast tissue, Dr. Lefkovits may recommend submuscular placement to hide the edges of your implants, creating a more natural look and feel. The main disadvantages of submuscular placement are a longer recover time, and a feeling of pressure when you exercise your pectoral muscles. All of these factors and more will be taken into account when Dr. Lefkovits helps you choose the placement option that best meets your needs.
