Dr. C. Bob Basu: There are several different implant placement techniques, and every surgeon has their preferred technique. In my hands, I strongly prefer and advocate for the dual-plane technique in most of my patients. In the dual-plane technique, the upper two-thirds of the implant are under the muscle, whereas the lower third of the implant is actually above the muscle. In my hands, I feel that it helps to create a very natural teardrop shape result in a lot of different patient body types. I also feel that it also helps to lift up the breasts a little bit more, for those patients that have very, very mild sagging. So in my hands, the dual-plane technique helps me to achieve very natural results in a lot of different body types.
