If you had 20 plastic surgeons in a room and asked them which breast implant placement is more natural, you’d probably never get a straight answer. But the truth is that it should all depend on the patient, their goals, and their breasts. In this blog post, we will be addressing the two placement options for breast augmentation. New Jersey patients can get sexy, natural-looking results with both implant placement options and we’ll look at why that is. If you are not content and are unhappy with your breasts or if you’ve had a mastectomy, please get in touch with Dr. Renee Comizio today at (973) 775-9248.
Implant Placement Options for Breast Augmentation
New Jersey patients that choose to undergo a breast augmentation have a lot of very important decisions to make. Choosing the right size and type of implant are difficult enough. But perhaps even more difficult is choosing where to place the implant. There are two different options: subglandular or submuscular.
- Subglandular placement – In this option, the breast implant is placed just behind the breast tissue. The implant will sit on top of the chest muscles (pectoralis) but will be covered by the fat and glandular tissue of the breasts.
- Submuscular placement – For the submuscular placement, Comizio will place the implants underneath the chest muscles. In this option, the implant sits under both the breast tissue and the pectoralis muscles.
So Which Placement Is More Natural?
This is another situation where the answer depends on your preferences. But here are some of the main concerns that Dr. Comizio will discuss with the patient.
- Sufficient breast tissue – New Jersey women that have small breasts may not have enough breast tissue to adequately cover the implants. Placing the implants just under the tissue may produce unnatural results, and the implant could be visible through the skin (called rippling).
- Implant size and shape – Some implants are better suited for submuscular or subglandular
- Motion deformity – In some cases, placing the implant under the pectoralis muscle can cause the implant to become deformed when the muscles are activated. It can also cause the implants to move in the breast pocket after the breast augmentation.
New Jersey patients will spend a great deal of time talking with Dr. Comizio about her opinions on implant placement. There are significant advantages, as well as disadvantages for both options, and she will help you determine which is right for you.
