Can Breast Implants Be Placed Under The Muscle Through The Nipple?
Thank you for your question! You can absolutley have your implants placed under the muscle, through the nipple. Find a board certified plastic surgeon who preforms these routinley. Best of luck!

Submuscular Saline Implants with Peri-areolar Incision
The #peri-areolar #incision is ideal for saline implants. They require a smaller incision because they are not filled until they are inside the body
Rippling of saline implants can of be experienced in patients who are thinner or leaner. However, this rarely occurs if the placement is #submuscular.
Circumareola approach used for submuscular implants
implants can be placed using a circumareola incision and under the muscle.However, since your breasts are shriveled,
you would benefit from a simultaneous skin excision.The goal of breast surgery is to create
beautiful breasts.Beauty is determined
by several factors including position of the breast on the chest wall, skin
tone, symmetry, cleavage, position of the areola and volume.22% of women who undergo breast augmentation
alone require revision within 2 years because they are dissatisfied with the
result.Frequent causes of
dissatisfaction are over implantation and not performing a simultaneous lift
when needed.I recommend a new technique
called Breast Augmentation with Mini Ultimate Breast LiftTM.Using only a circumareola incision it is
possible to reshape your breast tissue creating upper pole fullness, elevate
them higher on the chest wall and more medial to increase your cleavage.Through the same incision, implants can be
placed.Aligning the areola, breast
tissue and implant over the bony prominence of the chest wall maximizes
anterior projection with a minimal size implant.Small round textured silicone gel implants
placed retro-pectoral look and feel more natural, are more stable, less likely
to ripple or have complications needing revision.Implant profile is irrelevant in the
retro-pectoral position since the muscle compresses it.

Implants can be placed through the areola and under the muscle
Yes, implants can be placed through the areola and behind the muscle. All saline implants canbe placed this way. For silicone implants, several things come into play to determine if the timpant can be placed through a peri-areolar incision: the areola diameter, the size of the implant, the projecton of the implant, the shell of the implant and the cohesiveness of the gel.
However, I do not agree with your blanket statement that the areola scar is the best. You should discuss the pros and cons of the different incisions with your plastic surgeon.
Where to place breast implants
thank you for your inquiry about breast implants.
Yes, implants can be placed under the muscle using an incision around the nipple.
The disadvantage is that this approach may increase the risk of a capsule (firm tissue) forming. Discuss the pros and cons of the peri-areolar approach with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes.
Submuscular Implants Through Periareolar Incision?
Yes, breast implants can be placed into a submuscular pocket through a periareolar incision. This depends on the size of the areola and whether you plan to use saline or silicone implants. Silicone implants are inserted fully inflated and require a larger incision and may not be possible if the areola is small. Also, please be aware that capsular contracture risk appears to be higher when this incision is used and the risk of nipple numbness may be increased as well.
The periareolar incision may increase the risk for capsular contracture.
Implants can certainly be placed in a sub muscular position using the periareolar approach. However I am less inclined to go through the areola these days in that there may be a higher risk for capsular contracture. Dragging the implants from breast tissue which is a requirement of a periareolar approach subjects the implant to contamination by bacteria.
Periareolar incision for breast augmentation
Yes, breast implants can be placed under the muscle if the incision is around the nipple areola complex. I would recommend that you consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine if this approach is feasible for you. Good luck!
Yes, implants can be placed under the muscle (sub muscular) through a nipple (peri areolar) incision. Although it is difficult to see any incision with breast augmentation, the peri areolar incision is a great option. Your surgeon, however, should inform you that their is an increase risk of capsular contracture through this incision. It is believed that contracture, or scar thickening around your implant, is the result of bacteria generating biofilm. Disrupting the ducts can potentially allow bacteria to seed your implant. Although the risk is low, I am using the infra mammary position more frequently as the risk is the lowest.
Saline Breast Implants and smaller Silicone can be placed under muscle through Aerola
Thank you for your question. Saline breast implants are frequently successfully placed beneath the chest muscle through a trans-areola incision.
With the help of the Keller funnel smaller silicone gel breast implants may be placed through the areola as well. However larger silicone gel breast implants are difficult to place through an areola incision because of the risk of tearing the skin.
