Breast Implant Placement Options

Choosing the right implant type and placement involves careful consideration of individual factors. At Hill Country, our expert team guides you through this important decision-making process, ensuring your breast augmentation journey is well-informed and tailored to your unique needs.


Subglandular placement involves positioning the implant under the breast tissue and over the muscle, making it suitable for patients who are combining augmentation with a breast lift. Due to potential visibility, this placement is not recommended for those with thin or little breast tissue on top.


Positioned under the pectoral muscle, providing advantages like a lower capsular contracture rate and less rippling. However, drawbacks include implant displacement and movement with muscle activation.

Dual Plane

Dual-plane placement entails dissecting under both the muscle and breast glands, making it ideal for candidates with poor overlying tissue and narrow, droopy breasts.

Each placement option—subglandular, submuscular, and dual plane—offers unique benefits and considerations, requiring a tailored approach based on individual anatomy and aesthetic goals. Optimal implant placement ensures natural-looking results, reduces the risk of complications, and enhances the longevity of the augmentation.
