Sub-Fascial Breast Implants in Maui

Dr. Yu can perform your breast enhancement procedure with subfascial placement of the breast implants. In this approach, the layer covering the outer surface of the chest muscle is elevated to create a space for the breast implant and allow support of the implant by a strong fibrous sheath. The primary benefit of this technique is that this muscle fascia can provide a physical barrier between the implant and your breast tissue to potentially decrease the chance of capsular contracture without disturbing or weakening the muscle. Dr. Yu can reduce the chance of developing “active  displacement” of the implant when the muscle contracts via this technique since your muscle activity does not affect the implant placed in front of it. Another advantage of this procedure is that patients generally have less discomfort and a faster recovery when compared with the standard submuscular placement. Not every patient is a candidate for this procedure. The choice of the proper technique for you will depend upon your anatomy, goals and life style. At your consultation appointment, you and Dr. Yu will review your options together and determine the best location for your implants, while minimizing the visibility of any possible scarring.

You may be sore for a few days after your breast augmentation procedure, but soon you will be able to resume your normal activities.
