The method of inserting and positioning your implant will depend on your anatomy and your surgeon's recommendation. The incision can be made in the crease where the breast meets the chest, around the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple), or in the armpit. Every effort will be made to assure that the incision is placed so resulting scars will be as inconspicuous as possible. In this practice it is our preference to place the scar in the crease below the breast and to make the implant pocket behind the pectoralis muscle.We believe this allows us to minimize risks and to maximize control over the cosmetic result.
 


 


Working through the incision, the surgeon will lift your breast tissue and skin to create a pocket, either directly behind the breast tissue or underneath your chest wall muscle (the pectoral muscle). The implants are then centered beneath your nipples.

 

Some surgeons believe that putting the implants behind your chest muscle may reduce the potential for capsular contracture. This placement may also interfere less with breast examination by mammogram than if the implant is placed directly behind the breast tissue. Placement behind the muscle, however, may be more painful for a few days after surgery than placement directly under the breast tissue.
