Breast Implants: Over or Under the Muscle? It’s a Split Decision
There are so many questions that come up when one decides to move forward with a breast augmentation:
What type of implant? Should I choose saline or silicone? What is the silicone “gummy bear” implant everyone is talking about? Which one would help me to achieve my aesthetic goals?
The truth is not everyone is a candidate for the “gummy bear” implant. Once you find out about your implant options, Dr. Park will paint a clear picture of what you can expect for your body with each implant so that you make a more informed decision.
In addition to doing research and educating yourself about breast implants from Mentor, Allergan, and Sientra, the next item to cross off your list is to become educated about incision placement. There are advantages and disadvantages to the three main incisions for the placement of your breast implants. These incisions include the axillary, periareolar, and inframammary. To find out about the best options for you, you’ll need to be examined to determine which approach is best for you.
The next decision that you will have to make is under or over the muscle (sub-muscular or sub-glandular)? Again, there are pluses and minuses to the placement of your breast implants. There are also variations to consider such as the dual plane and the split muscle pockets.
All of these choices for implants, incisions, and pocket placement, will be discussed during your consultation. Your final decisions should be much easier after meeting board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gregory Park. Call us at (760) 655-1414 to schedule your consultation.
