- Sub fascia placement
This procedure is popular since it involves less dissection and is simple. The procedure also results in faster recovery with patients reporting less pain after the operation.
Some of the disadvantages of sub facial include drift and rotational movements in the calf implant. The patient might also fill the perimeter edges of the implant afterwards since the implants are usually harder than the muscles with less tissue covering the implants.
- Sub muscular
The biggest advantage of the sub muscular implant placement is that the implant is placed more securely and accurately within the gastronomies and oleos muscles. This calf muscle that has deeper fascia tissue allows for more aesthetic placement of the implant.
The sub muscular implant, however, requires a more complicated procedure as the operation delves deeply into tissue. The patient also needs more time and can cause a lot of discomfort before healing begins.
