Over the muscle implants
In the past few years, plastic surgeons have been placing tissue expanders and implants over the muscle. With the new cohesive gel implants, advances in mastectomy techniques, use of dermal matrices, and with the advent of fat grafting, we are able to offer this option. Over the muscle implants prevent animation deformities (moving your breast implants while flexing your pectoralis muscle), which can be quite distressing with under the muscle implants. Over the muscle implants do look natural, too. It is an excellent option in the right patient. If you have concerns, you may want to ask your plastic surgeon about the upcoming surgery. Best of luck!
