Cardiology Questions Answered by Verified Cardiologists.
Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,
Board Certified and I have 32 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you have concerns about getting an ICD implanted.
The unit is placed at the top of the breast under the skin and a little to the right of the left armpit. The unit itself is about 1 1/4 inches by 1 1/4 inches by 1/2 inch deep. The unit may be slightly visible depending on your upper body frame. If you are very thin, it will be more visible, if not very thin, you will hardly notice it.
I hope this is helpful.
Yes, you can have one implanted with breast implants.
