breast augmentation choices above or below muscle

above-or-below-muscle-breast-implant-placement.jpgIf you’re considering getting a breast augmentation, you should consider studying up on the difference in placement options for your implants. While Dr. Quinn prefers and recommends sub-muscular (under the muscle) implant placement, you should be informed of your choices.

The possible benefits of this placement (breast augmentation under the muscle) are that it may result in less palpable implants, less capsular contracture, a more natural look, and easier imaging of the breast with mammography. The sub-muscular placement may make surgery last longer, may make recovery longer, and may make it more difficult to have some re-operation procedures than the sub-glandular placement.

Sub-glandular placement (breast augmentation over the muscle) may make your surgery and recovery time shorter. It may make the implant easier to access if re-operation is necessary. This placement also may make it easier to see and feel your implants through your skin after your surgery. Capsular contracture is more likely with sub-glandular placement, and imaging of the breast with mammography may be more difficult.

It is always important to be aware of your choices when choosing to have a breast augmentation procedure. Make sure you have discussed your options with your surgeon to ensure that you and your surgeon understand your expectations!
