Breast Implant Surgery — Fort Lauderdale Placement

Published on October 4, 2015

When it comes to breast implant surgery, patients and doctors now have numerous techniques to choose from in order to get optimal results with the lowest risk possible. Before your consultation, it’s best to have a general idea of the options available.

The placement of your implants can be done either beneath the breast tissue only, subpectoral (below the chest muscle), or subfascial (below a sheet of connected tissue). Each of these placement options comes with its own pros and cons. Breast implant surgery techniques can be customized to fit the individual needs of the patient.

When getting saline implants, thin patients with minimal breast tissue and patients with a problematic history with previous breast implant surgery should consider a deeper placement. Subpectoral and subfascial implants are less likely to develop capsular contracture, due to the constant movement that occurs with muscle motion.

For more information about implant locations, contact Dr. Michael Rodriguez at his Fort Lauderdale office to set up appointment.
