Breast augmentation with a lift
Thanks for submitting your picture. It would have been helpful to have a side view. In any event, from your picture it appears that you have a C cup size with ptosis level 3 ( severe ) and a full lift ( key hole ) will give you the best result. As far as the breasts augmentation, the submuscular placement of the implants has less likelihood of developing capsule contracture in comparison to subglandular ( on top of the muscle ) placement. If you like the results of your chosen surgeon, listen to his recommendation. However, after 27 years in practice and over 2,000 breasts augmentation patients, the best option, in my opinion, is saline implants under the muscle. In regard to 400 cc implants, you did not give us the chest circumference measurement , so it is difficult to be precise. If you are presently 34 C cup, a 400 cc implants will bring you to a 34 full DD . If that what you had in mind it is fine , otherwise it sounds too big. Always, consult with board certified plastic surgeons and check their before and after pictures to make sure that they are numerous, consistent and you like them. Also, check the reviews.
Best of luck,
Breast implants placed under the chest muscle with breast lift is a better option than under the breast.
Placing the breast implants beneath your chest muscle provides protection for the blood supply of your nipple areola, reduces your risk of capsular contraction, and can result in better mammogram examinations in the future.

Over or under implants
There are pros and cons to putting implants over and under the muscle.
Doing a lift with implants has a slightly higher risk of infection - under the muscle gives a little more protection.
And under the muscle makes capsular contracture less likely (it does not completely prevent it.)
It sounds as though you want the implants over the muscle. It makes sense, provided you understand the pros and cons, the implants are not so large that your breast tissues cannot support them, and provided your surgeon agrees given the quality of your skin. Best wishes.
