Breast Augmentation Customized for Your Unique Body

Obtaining natural results for your breast augmentation in Seattle requires a surgeon who can design a customized treatment plan. I spend the time needed to evaluate a patient”s body frame and existing breast tissue so that I can place her breast implants for an ideal look. I use 2 different methods of breast implant placement: subpectoral placement (placing the implants under the muscle) and subglandular placement (placing the implants over the muscle).

Subpectoral Placement

Placing the implants under the muscle can result in a softer implant shape and help conceal implant ripples. The tissue covering the implant results in a more natural appearance. Women who may benefit from subpectoral placement include:

Thin or petite women

Women with little breast tissue to cover the implant

Women with little or no drooping of the breast

Subglandular Placement

In some cases, placing an implant over the muscle is advantageous because this method usually has a faster recovery time. This method is suited to:

Women with enough natural breast tissue to cover the implant

Women with drooping breasts who want larger breasts without a breast lift

Athletes or very active women
