Why do you put breast implants below the muscle? Frequently Asked Question Riverside CA

Why do you put breast implants below the muscle?


There is significant medical evidence demonstrating that breast implants have less chance for internal scarring (capsular contracture), look more natural and feel better if placed below the muscle. Most plastic surgeons feel that the breasts have a higher likelihood of staying softer longer when placed below the muscle. Likewise implants are separated from the milk producing glands, easier to examine the breasts and when mammograms are done the muscle is a natural separation plane between the muscle, the implant and breast tissue allowing the radiologist a better view of the breast tissue.
