Under the Muscle Breast Augmentation

Contact Dr. Jacobsen today to learn more about the various techniques available in breast augmentation.

Under Muscle Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is generally done in two ways; either under the breast muscle or directly under the tissue of the breast. For most augmentations, it is best to place the implant under the muscle. As the muscle acts as a buffer. Holding the implant into a tapered, more elongated position beneath the breast.

Augmentations occurring under the previously fixed muscle require additional recovery time, as the muscle becomes somewhat spasmodic during the first initial day’s post-surgery. Contracting, pulling and placing the implant superiorly higher on the chest wall. Until the muscle spasms cease, the implants will continue to sit superiorly higher on the chest wall. Dr. Jacobsen doctors the contractions and muscle spasms by prescribing light muscle relaxers during the first initial day’s post-op. These spasms will subside during approximately the 1st week or 2.

In addition to addressing the contractions and spasms with medicine, to further aid and relax the upper pole of the breast, a circumferential band of elastic VELCRO is placed over the top of the chest. Helping to add pressure, and alleviate the muscle allowing the implants to fall into the ideal position they were placed during the operation. The time it takes for the implants to drop varies. Some women drop immediately, but for others it can take longer. Stretching, massaging and wearing the compressive bands and brassiere as directed tend to help a great deal. After your procedure Dr. Jacobsen will give you specific instructions of care. To properly care for your new augmentation the directions given to you by Dr. Jacobsen should be followed properly, revealing the great new shape to your breasts.

I had a great experience during my consultation with Dr. J and his staff. They made me feel super comfortable as soon as I walked in even though I was a nervous wreck. Everyone was so sweet, nice and very knowledgeable. What I wanted done Dr. J surprised me with his answer. Which is why I will be scheduling an appointment for a breast augmentation soon with him. Also, I hate talking on the phone so I am able to contact them by text or email with any questions or concerns I have, and with my busy schedule it works out for both parties. I will have to edit this review with the results of my procedure and recovery process. As for a consultation experience, I have no complaints.
