Breast Implant Placement

Breast implant results Utah
There are two placement options for breast implants, 1) on top of the chest muscle, as shown in the middle image above, or 2) underneath the chest muscle, as shown in the image on the right. Most often the placement is made underneath the muscle as it helps keep the implant in place.

Breast Augmentation FAQs

What can I expect at the initial consultation?

Typically the initial consultation consists of answering all of your questions and concerns about the surgery. You and the doctor will discuss your goals and expectations as well as review your medical history. The doctor will review the details of the procedure as well and what you can expect before and after the procedure. We will answer questions regarding costs and post-surgical care. If you want to proceed, the doctor will perform an examination including breast measurements and go over the various types of implants available.

What happens during the procedure?

The doctor will begin your breast augmentation procedure by making the incisions. They will offer two types of incisions with his breast enhancement procedures:

  • Periareolar, made just outside the periphery of the areola
  • Inframammary, made at the bottom of the breast

The surgeon will then offer either saline or silicone implants, depending on your needs and preferences. They may place the breast implants either above or beneath the pectoralis (chest) muscle.

Once the implants are placed, the incisions will be closed and you can begin the recovery process

Our doctor often combines breast enlargement with a breast lift procedure if you have sagging that also needs correction.

Why can I expect after the procedure?

After the procedure is complete, your chest will be bandaged and wrapped with a compression garment to help your breasts keep their new shape. Patients should expect to take about 1 week off from work. Typically, women return to normal, everyday activities after this time, but they are advised to refrain from heavy lifting or rigorous exercise for a few weeks.

Can I get my existing implants removed, replaced or revised?

If you’ve had a breast augmentation in the past you may need a replacement or revision for various factors including breast asymetry, aging implants or simply dissatisfaction with the results. Our surgeon can help. They will evaluate your particular issues and recommend the best course of action to address your concerns. Call Trilogy to schedule a no-obligation consultation.

What should I wear on the day of my surgery?

Loose, comfortable and button-up or front zip-up clothing is a must. You will not be able to lift your hands over your head comfortably post surgery. A zippered hoodie is ideal to wear home after the surgery.

How long does the surgery take?

Typically breast augmentation surgery takes 1-1.5 hours.

What type of breast implant feels the most natural?

Silicone or “gummi-bear” style breast implants are the softest and patients report they feel more like natural breast tissue than saline alternatives. The “gummy bear” breast implant, which is filled is filled with a cohesive gel that mimics the feel of natural breast tissue almost perfectly.
