In the previous decades of plastic surgery practice, breast augmentation (breast implant surgery) has changed as doctors applied their experience and expertise. Breast augmentation patients, today, have options of the type of implant they can choose (saline or silicone—both approved by the FDA) and where your surgeon will place the implant (in front of or behind the muscles of the chest). Dr. Oldham recommends placing implants behind the pectoralis muscles of the chest for patients who seek breast augmentation for cosmetic purposes (as opposed to mastectomy patients). Dr. Oldham recommends this technique for two reasons. For one, maintaining your breast health through yearly mammogram exams in easier because the placement of the implant behind the muscle has a significantly decreased chance of obscuring mammogram results. And secondly, the placement behind the chest muscles has shown to decrease a patient’s chance of developing capsular contracture, the excessive firmness of the breasts which occurs infrequently.
