The placement of breast implants is a big decision that women in Omaha need to consider, in addition to the size, shape and other factors. Most of the time a plastic surgeon will ask patients what appearance they desire and then decide the placement option for the breast implants accordingly. However, it’s also important for patients to know the different options so they understand exactly what results they can expect. The two placement options for breast implants include over the muscle placement and under the muscle placement. Here are some of the important details of each for Omaha women to understand.

Over the Muscle Placement

Over the muscle placement for breast implants is also commonly referred to as subglandular placement. This placement type involves inserting the implants between the chest muscle and the breast tissue. This option generally enhances the natural breast shape. Silicone implants are the standard choice for over the muscle placement, but Dr. Ayoub can work with saline implants as well. Another advantage of this placement option is the ability to create more cleavage if the patient desires. The breast implants can be placed closer together with this option, which will enhance the cleavage as a result.

Under the Muscle Placement

Under the muscle placement for breast implants is also referred to as submuscular placement. With this option, the implants are placed under the pectoralis major muscle. The result is the breast implants are covered by muscle, as well as the breast tissue over it. This placement option is commonly chosen by women who have a thinner body build since it provides some additional padding when the implant settles in. The under the muscle placement also has a more natural-looking appearance, but every patient’s body type is different.
