Submuscular placement of breast implants may reduce the chances of your implants being felt through the skin, and help reduce the chance of scar tissue hardening around your implants. It will also make it easier to image your breast during a mammogram. However, this placement choice may mean a longer surgery and recovery time.
Having subglandular breast augmentation may make your surgery shorter and reduce your recovery time. However, with this placement choice, it may be more difficult to image your breasts during a mammogram. Make sure you tell the person performing your mammogram that you have breast implants.
