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, 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.

  • review rating 5  Dr. Jacobsen is a highly skilled and compassionate surgeon. He removed a malignant melanoma from the left side of my face. He was thorough and precise. I am now cancer free. The result is outstanding. Dr. Jacobsen and his staff are outstanding when it come to communication! I left a voice mail at his office on a Saturday morning and Dr. Jacobsen called me back himself within 15 minutes! He requested me to immediately email photos and the lab report. I did so and again heard back from him within 15 minutes! His web site has links to contact the office directly. This type contact is promptly answered. I highly recommend Dr. Jacobsen.

  • review rating 5  Dr J is a kind, compassionate, extremely gifted surgeon. I’ve now had two procedures preformed by him and both he explained and executed beautifully. He is always there to answer questions before and after surgery. You will most likely wait about a hour longer then your expected appointment time but he is definitely worth the wait.

  • review rating 5  I had skin cancer removed from my forehead for the first time and my dermatologist's office scheduled an appointment with Dr. Jacobsen on my behalf. Not only was the staff accommodating but they actually got another patient to reschedule so that they could fit me in to close up the (rather large!) wound. I still had no idea what was going on, what everything was going to look like, how much it was going to cost, etc and I was under a considerable amount of stress. Every staff member I interacted with put me more and more at ease; they're more worried about you as a person than they are about you as a payment. Dr. Jacobsen is very kind and so concerned about the wellbeing and comfort of his patients. I was in very good hands. I am now going through round two and I am back in his hands -- and couldn't feel more secure. The pictures shared are from my first procedure -- about 2 weeks apart. The scar has disappeared even more and is nearly unnoticeable even without a light layer of makeup (as in the after photo)
