Placement Options

Subglandular placement is below breast tissue but above the muscles in your chest. For women with sufficient breast tissue, this option can reduce surgical and recovery time. For women without sufficient breast tissue this option may result in visible implant imperfections, and look and feel less natural.

Submuscular placement is below both breast tissue and chest muscles. This option may increase surgical and recovery time but tends to produce completely natural-looking and feeling results for women with smaller natural breasts.
