Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most frequently requested cosmetic surgeries. The two most common techniques used for breast enhancement are sub-muscular (under the muscle) and sub-glandular (under the gland). Both have advantages and drawbacks.
I believe the sub-muscular position allows for a more natural slope and looks less augmented than the tradition sub-glandular position. It also allows for more protection from capsular contracture and prevents against the possibility of rippling and the implant edge showing. But the sub-glandular position has the benefit of providing a bit of a lift.
Now, there is another choice that can be individualized to the patient’s particular needs-the dual-plane technique. This newer procedure combines both techniques and gives the patient the “best of the both worlds.” The implant falls to the base of the gland, but is still covered by the muscle.
