A type of breast implant placement is an individual right as a patient. There are many looks that can be achieved, depending on the patient’s wishes, as well as height, size, placement, natural breasts, and ribs circumference. In addition, there are three types of alternative placement options for breast implants: subglandular, submuscular, and multiple plane. Plastic surgeons will work with the patient to determine the most appropriate to their needs and give them the desired results.
During this subglandular procedure, the breast implant is placed above the chest muscle chest true, but behind the breast tissue. One of the biggest arguments that support the subglandular implant placement involves less pain and bleeding for patients. Because the pectoral muscle is not changed, this approach resulted in a shorter recovery period and more comfortable. Submuscular approach is suitable for patients who have enough breast tissue to cover the breast implants and still produce a natural look and feel.
During the submuscular procedure, breast implants placed under the pectoral muscle of the chest. This method is usually done because there is more tissue to cover the implant supported, produces a more natural look and feel. This is especially true in lean women or women with small breasts. In addition, the submuscular placement approach was associated with a lower rate of capsular contracture, a condition in which scar tissue forms around the implant hardens and produces the appearance and / or disturbed. In addition, the results of submuscular implant technique in less interference with mammograms than with subglandular implants.
This procedure is a hybrid between subglandular and submuscular implant procedures. In this approach, the implant is placed partially beneath the pectoral muscle. Muscle separate glands in varying degrees to produce the right amount of muscle and gland cover. This allows the implant to fill the breast that was free. Additional effect of damping provides greater implant coverage and support. The double plan approach is most often performed on patients who want a natural look and feel, and have developed a slight degree of breast ptosis.
Plastic surgeons will evaluate each patient individually to determine the placement procedure will work best, both in terms of desired outcomes and patient convenience. There are several variables to consider in addition to breast augmentation implant placement. This may include natural breast shape and placement, as well as the patient’s skeleton and muscular system. A plastic surgeon will balance all of these variables when formulating a treatment plan to produce the best results.
Patients who have questions about the method of placement of breast implants and incision site, or want to know more about breast implant filler type, size, shape, and profile information should schedule an initial consultation at their convenience in the office of a local plastic surgeon. During this consultation, the surgeon will develop a personalized surgical plan and recommend the best type of breast implants.
