What is subfascial breast augmentation?

Subfascial breast augmentation involves placing the breast implant beneath the fascial layer above the muscles but below the fat and glandular tissue. This placement offers a unique blend of benefits: it avoids the muscle-related complications of submuscular augmentations while providing better coverage and support for the implant than subglandular options. Patients often seek this type of surgery to achieve a more natural breast contour, as it reduces the likelihood of implant visibility and palpability, which can be a concern with other placement techniques.

Who is a good candidate for subfascial breast augmentation?

Individuals considering subfascial breast augmentation are typically those who appreciate a moderate enhancement to their body's silhouette. This procedure is particularly well-suited to those with a certain level of breast tissue but who want to enhance their shape and volume without the pronounced roundness sometimes produced by other augmentation methods.

Benefits of choosing subfascial placement

Opting for subfascial placement offers a compromise between the implant stability provided by submuscular placement and the natural feel of subglandular placement. It's particularly beneficial for reducing recovery time and postoperative discomfort, making it an excellent option for active individuals who don't want lengthy downtimes. Moreover, the fascial support helps achieve a smooth, natural breast appearance that is less likely to ripple or wrinkle.
