By inserting breast implants behind each breast, Dr. Donna Rich uses her skill and expertise to increase a woman’s bustline by one or more bra cup sizes. If you’re considering subpectoral implants – where the implant is inserted under the muscle – this blog post will give you a basic understanding of the procedure.

Subpectoral implants provide the added advantages of a lower rate of capsular contracture, a lower rate of rippling, and less likelihood of the implant shifting downward.

Working through an incision, Dr. Rich gently lifts the breast tissue along with the skin and creates a pocket underneath the chest muscle. The implants are then symmetrically aligned beneath the nipples.

Implants can also be placed above the pectoral muscle. It’s important to note that there are benefits and drawbacks to each surgical technique utilized for implant placement. These decisions are discussed in great length during a one-on-one sit down with Dr. Rich.
