Breast augmentation dual plane: eventual risks for the muscle

boobless  |  visitor  |  Capital Federal
hello! i am considering a boobjob but i was wondering if the pectoral is going to be unuseless ufter the surgery or parcialy unuseless if i choose the unther the muscle placement ( dual plane ) the doctor has told me that he is not going to cut the muscle ( i think he means "make an incision") am i going to lose muscle force? how bad is for the pectoral to be in this anormal round shape because of the implant?
thank you very much and sorry about my bad english

Helo, in my experience of 20 years in subpectoral augmentation I have not seen any funcional impairement of pectoral muscle. And subpectoral plane means to cut the muscle.

It's not going to affect your muscles' activity. It is an elaborate technique that has been in use for many years. Of course in order to accomodate the implant in the pocket under your pectoral muscle there will be a marginal incision, not in the muscle itself. Also muscle tissue is very adaptive and it gets used to new shape and position in a short time. You will be able to do all activities and exercises as before the surgery, after some time of course.

Complete implant muscle coverage is shown at left with intact muscle fascia supporting the lower pole of the implant. This support fascia is the extension of the muscle envelope from the pectoralis muscles to the abdominal rectus muscles, and the finger shaped serratus anterior muscles to the sides, and is a stout collagen sheet which stretches slowly after implant placement, but provides reliable long-term internal bra-like support to prevent "bottoming-out". With this approach the implants are totally behind the breast,and your muscle will not be afected of course before you decide to do it you have to take in cosideration that have an experienced surgeon will be the best to obtain the outcome you deserve.

I would not expect the pectoral muscle to lose function because of the surgery. You will have to rest for a few weeks to let things heal and settle, but I would not expect any long term muscle problem.

for a lady who is planning to undergo breast augmentation this is a genuine concern. implants can be placed above the muscle or underneath the muscle. if muscle is cut ( only partially ) and implant placed under the muscle it is called dual plane placement. since muscle is only partially cut with this technique, muscle function is usually maintained. hence no need to worry. so no loss in muscle function.

When breast implants are placed behind the pectoral muscles, over the rib cage, these muscles are cut on both sides, medially and laterally for accomodating the implants. Different surgeons have different approaches for cutting the pectoral muscles. Some use cautery, others use knief, but in any case there is bleeding during muscle cutting which needs to be controlled and usually breast surgeons severe pectoral muscles considerably and create a wider pocket for the implants, as is generally thought that implants stay better in a wider pocket. The proximal pectoral muscle rounds up over the implant and certainly there is loss of muscle function mostly completely and rarely partial, when the surgeon is more conservative in cutting the muscle.

Our cosmetic surgeon, Dr. H.A.Khawaja, has pioneered the "NO CUT PECTORAL TECHNIQUE", in which the implants are placed behind the pectoral muscles, without cutting them. The procedure is done under Khawaja's Turgid Local Anesthesia ( Khawaja's Formulas I-III ), and implants are placed inside the breasts, behind the pectoral muscles using very small incisions ( 1/2-1.5 inches ). The procedure takes around 30-40 minutes, is completely bloodless and painless. This state of the art technique is available at our clinic CSSC International.

I want to do breast augmentation though I have no idea about exact cost of breast Surgery. I really really need to do this surgery ... can't tolerate this flat breast size&shape.
Recently i heard that there is a Hospital in Korea, are offering free plastic surgery for foreign people both man and woman. Now I am less worried about the budget. I hope some other hospital would offer the same.
