If you decide to move forward with a breast enhancement, you will need to decide which breast implant placement method to use during your procedure. Each placement method comes with its own set of pros and cons.

Submuscular placement can be associated with more discomfort since your breast implants are placed beneath your chest muscles. While this can potentially lead to a longer recovery time, many patients prefer this placement method because of its significant benefits, such as:

  • Better coverage of your breast implants
  • More natural, sloped look
  • Lower risk of capsular contracture
  • Less interference with mammograms

If you have thin breast tissue, submuscular placement will help you hide the edges of your breast implants and prevent other cosmetic issues, such as rippling. After listening to your cosmetic goals and performing an examination, our experienced Atlanta breast enhancement team can help you determine which breast implant placement method would best meet your needs.
