Breast Implant Placement. What Looks Most Natural?

Breast Augmentation | Breast Implants | VirginiaConsidering Breast Implants?  The internet provides a wealth of information, recommendations, referrals, warning and opinions on every topic under the sun.  When investigating breast implants and reading of others experiences, you may see comments from women that have had the implants positioned above or below the pectoral muscle.  Women that are considering breast implants are going to want optimal fullness, appearance and feel as the end result of breast implant surgery.  Dr. Magassy of Plastic Surgery Associates, PC in McLean, VA will weigh the options for your breast augmentation and help you determine the right options for your needs and goals during your initial consultation.

In many cases, below the muscle placement will benefit you if you have thin skin or a small frame with minimal natural breast tissue. However, if skin laxity is present, subpectoral placement potentially could exacerbate this concern. A breast lift can help to correct this.

To achieve the most natural breast movement, or “bounce,” possible, you may wish to consider a smooth surface implant or placement above the muscle, which will allow for greater mobility.  Above the muscle placement may provide greater mobility regardless of the texture or shape of the implant.

It’s great to get plenty of information regarding Breast Augmentation.  However, it can all get confusing and ultimately, you will need to speak with an experienced, skilled plastic surgeon.  Dr. Magassy is top-rated within the Northern Virginia, Washingon DC area.  During your consultation he will be able to give you expert advice based your anatomic measurements, and recommend breast implant size, and placement location.
