Advantages of Submuscular Placement in Indiana

Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana


One of your Indianapolis breast augmentation options is where your implants will be placed. Dr. Fata offers subglandular (above the muscles in the chest), dual-plane (partially underneath the muscles in your chest), and submuscular (below the muscles in your chest) placement, but has found that submuscular is best in nearly every situation.

To place yours implants submuscularly will require a bit longer recovery period, but the advantages of this placement often outweigh this slight inconvenience. Dr. Fata will be happy to discuss this with you in more detail during your Indianapolis breast augmentation consultation.

Why Submuscular Placement

Submuscular placement tends to look and feel more natural than other breast implant placement options. In addition, this placement may:

  • Decrease your risk of implant displacement and imperfections
  • Decrease your risk for capsular contracture
  • Reduce breastfeeding complications
  • Be less likely to interfere with mammograms and cancer screening

There are a number of physical and aesthetic benefits offered by submuscular placement, but it may not be right for everyone. Dr. Fata will discuss all of your options along with the benefits of each during your initial consultation.
