The subfascial placement of breast implants has many of the advantages of both the submuscular and subglandular techniques of breast augmentation, and has become the preferred position for the placement of breast implants in our practice.
The Subfascial Position:
- Prevents the “stuck on” appearance often caused by the submuscular placement, offering a more natural slope to the breast.
- Has a lower rate of “rippling.”
- Less injury to the patient than the submuscular, as the muscle is not released off of the chest wall.
- Has less post operative “downtime”. Generally, patients can return to work after 2 or 3 days, and are able to workout at 2 weeks.
- Prevents the muscle movement “animation” that is often visible after submuscular placement in extremely active individuals.
