When choosing breast implants, some important decisions have to be made between you and your plastic surgeon regarding size, shape, and composition of the implants. Once those decisions are made, the details of the procedure become the primary focus.

The location of the breast implant relative to the muscle must also be determined, as must the incision type and location. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Chris Park can place implants either under the chest muscle or above it. Where the implant sits and its composition will help to determine the location.

When inserting breast implants, your plastic surgeon makes an incision, lifts the breast tissue and skin, creates a pocket in the chest area (either above or below the pectoral muscle) and places an implant inside. The implants are then centered beneath your nipples and checked closely for symmetry to ensure ideal placement.

Dr. Park works closely with his patients during their consultation to map out the ideal procedure plan that matches their cosmetic goals.
