35 year old, 2 years postoperative. 500cc smooth round saline breast implants, subglandular, with an infra-mammary incision. This patient is very athletic and preferred a subglandular placement. She went from a small B to a large C. Subglandular placement can be performed if the patient has adequate soft tissue coverage for the implant. There is still more chance of visible rippling, however, with a subglandular placement, yet this patient has had no problems with rippling or palpability. Each patient has different desires when it comes to implant type and placement, and these factors are all considered when planning breast augmentation.
