Many important decisions must be made when you choose to move forward with breast augmentation surgery. Not only is the type of breast implant you select important, but also you must decide on the placement of your breast implants. You have two options as to where your implants will be placed. Dr. Mark Crispin has helped many residents of Marietta make all of the important decisions related to breast implants.

When it comes to breast implant placement, your options are as follows:

  • Above Muscle – When breast implants are “above muscle,” this means they are placed above the chest muscles and under the breast tissue. This type of placement generally results in a faster recovery.
  • Under Muscle – Breast implants can also be placed under your chest muscles. The recovery time for this placement location is generally longer than it would be with the above muscle option. However, the overall results are often look and feel more natural.

There are pros and cons for each breast implant placement option. The type and size of the implants you select will affect your decision. Prior to your procedure, Dr. Crispin will discuss your alternatives in great detail and help you decide which would be best for you.
