Under the Muscle Vs Over the Musculature Implant Pictures
You can see the difference between under and over the muscle implant placement by comparing the two types of procedures. Although the under-the-muscle placement is less invasive than the over-the-muscle approach, it can cause more pain and increase the risk of losing sensation. The advantages of the submuscular approach are discussed in this article. In this article, you’ll learn about the dangers of submuscular placement and the pain.
Less invasive procedure
Although both under and over the musculature placements can yield satisfactory results, a submuscular implant placement is more difficult than an over-the musculature placement. The latter is associated with a longer recovery time and a higher chance of capsular contracture. The latter, however, preserves the chest muscle and is easier to read in mammograms.
The two most common procedures for implant placement are submuscular and over-the-muscle. While subglandular placement is faster and less invasive, it’s not ideal for patients with little natural breast tissue. Additionally, women with little or no chest muscle may be unsuitable for sub-glandular placement. However, over-the-muscle placement is preferred by female bodybuilders as it can produce natural-looking results.
Increased risk of sensation loss
You can have your implants placed underneath or over your breasts if you wish to increase the volume. Both types of implant placement will be discussed with your surgeon. The pros of an implant placed over the muscle outweigh the disadvantages. Women with a sufficient amount of natural breast tissue should choose the over-muscle placement. However, if you have little or no natural breast tissue, the under-muscle placement is more appropriate. Implant placement under the muscle can cause sensation to be less strong.
An increase in risk of capsular contracture occurs with implants placed over the muscle. Capsular contracture is an abnormal hard scar tissue formed around the implant. It can cause breast problems and pain. Implants placed under the muscle are less likely to cause capsular contracture. Implants made of saline are less likely than silicone gel to create scar tissue.
Submuscular implants can be migratory
Submuscular implants are increasingly used as a permanent solution for breast augmentation. The periareolar and axillary incision sites, however, may create problems for the insertion of the implant, including the possibility of infection and pocket formation. Submuscular implant placement can cause wrinkles or folds in the implant. This makes revision and implantation more difficult. We examined the cobertura, sustenacao and cobertura of 80 submuscular implant. The study included 80 submuscular implants in the breast – regardless of access, flacidity, or ptose.
The pectoralis major is the implantation site of submuscular implants. One implant placed under the muscle can result both in lower capsular contracture and decreased capsular contraction. The biplane technique is used to augment the muscle. In this case, the pectoralis major is partially removed. The muscles are separated along the fibers and sutured into an extralateral or superomedial pocket.
Pain associated with submuscular placement
Pain associated with breast implants has been documented in patients after surgical reconstruction of the left lateral breast with submuscular implants. The implant placement itself exacerbated the pain. Neurolysis was performed to treat the intercostal nerves that were stretched in the muscle pockets during breast resection. The nerves were then repositioned to alleviate pain. In one instance, the pain lasted for over a month.
