When it comes to breast implants, patients and doctors now have numerous techniques and options to choose from to yield the best results with the lowest risk possible.
The placement of your breast implants can be done either beneath the breast tissue only, subpectoral (below the chest muscle), or subfascial (below a sheet of connected tissue). When getting saline implants, thin patients with minimal breast tissue or with a history of problems with previous implants should consider deeper placement. Subpectoral and subfascial implants are less likely to develop capsular contracture, due to the constant movement that occurs with muscle motion.
Each placement option comes with its own set of benefits and drawbacks.
