Implant placement with replacement implants
Implants can be placed either above or below the muscle. If you have had some muscle removed during your mastectomy, an evaluation in person would help decide what could be best for you.
Breast implants after PIP implant removal
Were the implants subpectoral (under the muscle) before? I prefer under the muscle generally but that decision is best left between you and your plastic surgeon. At present I am not a huge fan of "anatomic" or "tear drop" implants as the silicone gel ones are only available in a study protocol setting and I only have saline filled anatomics available to my patients and especially when they are over the muscle they may give more "rippling" visible. Best to visit with several plastic surgeons (in your situation) if you are not sure about the opinion you got.
