The implant is to be placed under the pectoralis major muscle then the incision is sutured after successful placement.
An elastic compression vest is then placed on the patient’s chest area to decrease the amount of movement of the implants and swelling. The patient is under general anesthesia and an additionally local anesthetic is also applied to reduce further discomfort around the area of the implant.
What happens after surgery?
