I am considering breast augmentation and I have pectus excavatum. Is it better to place implants over the muscle or under? I am considering 300cc or less.
A: breast augmentation, pectus excavatum
In patients with pectus excavatum (concave chest wall) subpectoral placement of breast implants can give a nice result. The implants can not be too large in size or they could end up too close and create a very unnatural appearance to the breast and cleavage.
A modest implant of 300cc or less may be a reasonable implant selection. Discuss this further with your board certified plastic surgeon prior to surgery.
