Snoopy dog look

Thank you for your question.  In general you get "snoopy dog" look when you do straight augmentation when you really need a lift with augmentation.  Hope that answers your question. Best of luck to you

Hi, Can you get snoopy dog if the implant goes over the muscle?

Thank you for your question. You will want to speak with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options. You can get a snoopy look from straight augmentation when a lift is required. Best,

Very much possible

yes snoopy dog deformity can happen in implant placed over the muscle in cases where envelope is too tight ( skin and gland) and pocket creation is inappropriately higher .

Snoopy breasts

Impossible to determine what your results will be without pictures. A double bubble deformity may occur if you have skin laxity that is not corrected with a lift at the same time as Submuscular implant placement

Snoopy Effect

Photos would be helpful to advise you with. Even better would be an in-person exam. If your breasts are drooping and require a lift but you place implants without a lift over the muscle, you are more likely to experience a "ball in sock" deformity. In either case the effect is unpleasant. The best way to avoid these issues is select a board certified Plastic Surgeon with plenty of expertise and before/after photos which appeal to you, and discuss your goals and expectations with them realistically so that you can ensure you select the right approach for you.
All the best
