Breast implants under the muscle are a more natural looking option than those that sit on top of the muscle. They also have several advantages, such as less rippling and less risk. However, there are some disadvantages to the subglandular technique. Before you decide on which method is best for you, consider these pros and cons.
There are several advantages of breast implant placement under the muscle. This technique provides less rippling than the other two placement methods, and is an excellent choice for women with thin breast tissue. Breast implants placed under the muscle are less visible, have less coverage, and decrease rippling along the sides. If you want to improve your appearance, you should ask your surgeon about this option during your free consultation.
In the event that rippling is an issue, your plastic surgeon can remove the implants and place firmer ones underneath the muscle. This method prevents rippling by making the implant feel more natural and allows for more range of motion.
You will need to have someone drive you home from the surgery, and you should stop taking blood thinners. You should also consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in breast augmentation. These surgeons are familiar with the intricate surgical techniques.
Although less rippling is possible when breast implants are placed under the muscle, some women still suffer from this issue. Rippling is especially problematic for women who have thin or thinning breast tissue. Because their breasts have little fat to cover the implant’s surface, they are likely to develop creases and wrinkles. Fortunately, many surgeons are able to minimise this problem by placing the implant beneath the muscle. This way, the muscle does not completely cover the implant, and rippling is usually less noticeable.
If you’re worried about rippling, the best option is to consult with your plastic surgeon and decide on a different breast implant type. In general, silicone and cohesive gel implants show less rippling than saline implants. However, you should know that textured silicone implants show more rippling than smooth ones.
More natural look
Breast implants placed under the muscle offer a more natural-looking contour. Ideally, saline implants are placed under the muscle to avoid rippling of the cleavage line. However, this type of placement can result in unnatural results, particularly if the natural breasts have already sagged and are not in a natural position. Moreover, it can cause more pain and discomfort during recovery. These drawbacks are usually short-term.
Choosing the right breast implant placement technique can make all the difference. While the traditional over-the-muscle approach was popular in the 1990s, newer techniques enable doctors to place the implants under the muscle, giving patients a more natural-looking look. Moreover, under-the-muscle placement is also better for your overall health, as it minimizes the risk of rippling and capsular contracture.One major difference between under-the-muscle and over-the-muscle placement is the amount of muscle that holds the implant in place. Patients who are very thin or have little native breast tissue may choose the under-the-muscle approach, as it results in a more natural-looking result.
In addition, the size and position of the implant also determine how natural the results will be. High-profile implants are more obvious and create a pointed look at the top of the breast, while low-profile ones are more subtle. While the choice between silicone and saline implants depends on your body type and the natural shape of your breasts, silicone implants tend to look more natural than saline ones. They also feel more like the breast tissue.
Less risk Breast Implants Under the Muscle
If you are considering a breast augmentation, you need to decide whether to place your implants over or under the muscle. Choosing to place them under the muscle is a safer and less invasive procedure. This type of implant placement will also result in a more natural look. In addition, it has a lower risk of capsule contracture.
However, there are still some risks involved with this type of implant placement. If you are at risk for breast cancer, it is important to consider the best placement for your implants. The placement of implants under the muscle allows more visible breast tissue on a mammogram, which may be important if you are diagnosed with breast cancer. However, submuscular implants are more likely to become flattened or distorted when the chest muscles flex. Furthermore, the constant pressure exerted on the implant by the chest muscles could cause it to dislodge. As a result, you may have a longer recovery time.
Another advantage of breast implants under the muscle is that they are less likely to cause capsular contracture. This scarring around the implant is painful and can result in an unnatural shape. However, this problem can be reduced by choosing a textured surface saline implant. If you’re not sure whether you’re at risk for this issue, you should request a consultation at The Plastic Surgery Center.
