Before making a decision to have surgery, your expectations and goals must be carefully discussed with Dr. Maggi to assure a predictable and satisfying outcome. The best candidates are women who are looking for an improvement in their appearance, are physically healthy, and have realistic expectations.
The procedure involves an implant being inserted into a pocket either:
- Under the pectoral muscle (submuscular), or
- Directly behind the breast tissue, over the pectoral muscle (submammary/subglandular)
The positioning of the implants will depend on the type of implant, degree of augmentation desired, your body type, and Dr. Maggi’s recommendations. Also based on current body and breast shape, incisions are made in one of three locations: under the breast, under the nipple, or in the underarm region.
