Your surgeon may place the implant directly behind your breast as this can give the most natural result. However, if you do not have enough breast skin and tissue to cover the implant, they may recommend placing the implant behind the pectoral muscle.
Your surgeon will place the implant through an incision under your breast (inframammary fold) in which to place the implant.
As with any cosmetic procedure you will be advised about smoking, weight control and taking a healthy diet before embarking on the surgery.
