Sub muscular vs Sub Glandular placement
A: Sub muscular vs Sub Glandular placement
Submuscular placement may be more uncomfortable the first few days following surgery. The possible benefits of submuscular placement are that it may result in less palpable implants, less capsular contracture, and it will make it easier to image the breast with mammography. The appearance may be more “natural” for patients who are very thin. Subglandular placement may make your surgery andrecovery shorter and you may have less discomfort. This placement may provide a slight “lift”. Subglandular placement may result in more palpable implants, more capsular contracture and more difficult imaging of the breast with mammography. This placement is often recommended for those patients with sagging, but do not want a breast lift (mastopexy) and for tubular breast deformity

Smooth or textured
Many of the problems that are seen I believe are due to many different choices made in the placement of the implants such as pocket, size, type of implant, etc. As one surgeon has mentioned most US surgeons place smooth implants under the muscle yet we still see the problems that this technique is supposed to minimize. I realize my answer may not help guide you at all but I would recommend that you interview different surgeons and express your expectation for your result. Then let the surgeons guide you in what they feel will give you the best result in their hands. Then choose the one you have the most faith and trust in.
