Submuscular vs. Subglandular: Which is Better for My Breast Augmentation?

This is a good question as the majority of patient that wish to have a breast augmentation desire a result that is going to feel and look natural.

In the United States the vast majority of breast augmentations are performed under the muscle. However there are certain situations where the implant is placed over the muscle. The benefits of placing the implant below the muscle:

  1. More natural feel
  2. More natural appearance
  3. Less visibility of the implant
  4. Placing the implant below the muscle also decrease the chance that the patient will form scar tissue around the implant.
  5. Less chance of having visible rippling from the implant.

It is important to see your board certified plastic surgeon to help guide you to an implant that will give you an aesthetically pleasing breast.
