One of the biggest decisions your will need to make prior to your Washington, D.C. breast augmentation procedure is where you would like your implants placed. Dr. Roberta Gartside offers subglandular and submuscular breast implant placement, both of which can produce pleasing results. However, submuscular placement of breast implants offers a number of unique benefits, making it ideal for many of our patients.

Why Consider Submuscular Breast Implant Placement?

Implants placed below the muscles in your chest are covered by breast tissue, allowing them to look and feel like your natural breasts. Because they are supported by muscle, submuscular implants are less likely to produce visible imperfections such as wrinkles, ripples, or double bubble, and are not inclined to sag.

Submuscular placement is less likely to interfere with breastfeeding, making this placement better for women who may have children in the future. This placement is also less likely to interfere with mammograms, though your physician will need to know you have implants even if they are placed underneath the muscles.

Dr. Gartside is an experienced breast surgeon who understands no two women have the same needs. During your Washington, D.C. breast augmentation consultation she will assess your frame, listen to your concerns, and help you determine which placement is right for you.
