BREAST AUGMENTATION DUBAI: IMPLANT PLACEMENT
Breast Augmentation Dubai | 20 August 2020
There are few choices when it comes to the placement of the breast implants you select. They are subglandular (above the muscle), submuscular (below the muscle) or dual plane (upper part below the muscle, lower part of the implant below the gland) . The benefits of each of the different placement options will be discussed with you at your consultation with a recommendation of a specific placement option depending on the natural shape of your breasts or your overall goals for getting a breast augmentation.
Subglandular placement is when the implant is placed above the muscle. During this placement, the implants are placed below the natural breast tissue and the surgery is usually quicker and the recovery time is faster than below the muscle. One of the benefits of subglandular placement is that if future surgery may be required due to rupture or leakage, it allows for easier access to the implant. However, subglandular placement does also have its downsides, such as an increased risk of capsular contracture, concerns about breast views on mammography, and the implant may be able to be felt through the skin.
Submuscular placement is when the breast implant is put under the pectoral muscle. The benefit with submuscular placement is that the final result of the breast augmentation will look and feel more natural. Any breast imaging will be easier including mammographies, because it is easier to differentiate the implant from real breast tissue. Most patients are able to drive in a few days and you may shower the next day. Most surgeons agree that implants under the muscle are in the best position for the long term health of the patient.
Dual plane augmentation
When slender women with slightly drooping breasts seek breast augmentation surgery, surgeons often combine these two routes, placing the implants partly behind the breast and partly behind the muscle. Through this combined approach surgeons try to give patients the benefits of both techniques. This is called a dual plane augmentation. This procedure can also be used in any type of breast, granting the same natural result.
