Board-certified Houston breast surgeon Dr. Malik Kutty offers both under the muscle (submuscular) and above the muscle (subglandular) breast implant placement. The best way to learn which is ideal for your body is through a one-on-one consultation where factors unique to your anatomy and desires can be taken into account.
Subglandular breast implant placement is often a good option for women who have adequate breast tissue to cover the implant. Newer implant options, including gummy bear implants, have made subglandular placement available to a larger selection of women, but by and large this placement requires the presence of a larger amount of natural breast tissue.
Submuscular breast implant placement is ideal for women who do not have adequate breast tissue to cover implants. It may also be a more attractive option for women looking to produce a more natural look and feel. Submuscular placement has been shown, for some women, to reduce the risk of capsular contracture. However, as with all breast augmentation risks, factors unique to your procedure will also impact this uncommon complication. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kutty will discuss this as well as your breast implant placement options in greater detail to ensure you making the decisions best for your body and cosmetic goals.
