Breast Implant Placement
Subglandular breast implant placement is below the breast tissue, but above the chest muscles. This placement offers a shorter surgical period, but is only available for women with sufficient breast tissue to cover the implant. Subglandular placement may not look or feel as natural as submuscular placement and implants in this location may more quickly show aesthetic imperfections.
Submuscular breast implant placement is below both breast tissue and chest muscles. This placement requires a longer surgery and may increase recovery time and temporary postoperative discomfort. However, submuscular implants tend to look and feel more natural, are less prone to visible aesthetic defects, and may reduce the risk of capsular contracture.
