I had butt implants put in about 5 years ago; will they sag overtime if they were put in over the muscle? (Photos)

There are different depths an implant can be placed in. Your implant seems to be placed too superficially. This can be fixed by putting the implants in a deeper plane. We can use the same implants to offset cost.
Thank you for your question, and the picture.
Because you had your implants placed overtop the muscle, over time you are at risk for being able to see the implant edges more and more, and for the implant to move/shift/flip as the support of the pocket weakens. You may want to consider having the implants moved to a position inside the muscle. I recommend consulting with a local plastic surgeon who has experience with these revision surgeries.

Implants over the muscle
Implants over the muscle are prone to being visible around the edges like yours are; I would replace them from over the muscle to in the muscle where they are supposed to be; I would recommend a revision to get them in the right pocket before they sag and become even more visible.
