Breast Augmentation Surgery and Breast Implant Choices
Breast Implant Placement
Below the muscle was an extremely popular method of implant insertion, however, it has reduced in popularity as many feel the risk of complications is higher and the recovery can be slower.
The dual plane technique, which is simply placing the implant half above the muscle and half below the muscle has taken over in popularity and in clinics. This method can take longer and some of the discount clinics do not offer this as they are time poor and perform the procedure in a production line method.
Above the muscle has made a major increase in popularity and some surgeons only offer this method as it is less painful, has fewer complications and with the newer implants, some of the concerns previously expressed are now less significant.
Why Choose the Above the Muscle Placement for Breast Implants
This procedure can often be less painful than other methods. The recovery can also be quicker as the muscle is not interfered with. Any of the complications such as ‘double bubble’ and implant displacement occur less. The treatment for ‘double bubble’ is often considered replacing the implant above the muscle. Some surgeons consider this less destructive to the muscle as the muscle may wither and lose strength in some cases. With the use of the polyurethane sticky implants, some advantages in correcting floppiness or ptosis are seen as well.

Crisalix- Virtual Reality Before and Afters of your Breast Augmentation
Crisalix is new software that allows you to ‘try on’ different implant shapes, sizes and placements before surgery. The Crisalix scans you to get a current measurement then you select the implant sizes and placements that you are considering. The system will then show you a virtual image of what this could look like post-surgery. This is a great option for anyone who is struggling to decide which implant and placement to choose. More information is available in the below video.
Crisalix consultations are available to those who have had their initial consultation with the nurse. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
