These include implant size, implant position and the choice of location for the small surgical access scar. Implant size is selected based on a detailed consultation, aided by viewing many examples of before and after results, as well as obtaining a full understanding of the patient’s goals and concerns. Los Angeles breast augmentation Implant size will also depend on the patient’s individual anatomic considerations including chest diameter.
With regard to implant position, the Los Angeles breast augmentation plastic surgeon Dev Wali, MD generally recommends positioning the implants under the pectoralis muscle. The muscle covering the top part of the implant results in a more natural appearing breast with less likelihood of a visible implant edge or visible rippling. Secondly, there is a reduced likelihood of capsular contracture, or hardness, developing over time. This is believed to be due to the massaging action of the muscle on the scar tissue surrounding the implant.
Finally, the submuscular implant position allows for a better view of the breast when a mammogram is obtained.
