Is it bad to get butt implants over the muscle?

I'm wanting to get butt implants ..However the surgeon who's certified by the board of plastic surgery says they will be placed over the muscle? He also says by placing over the muscle I will be able to have a bigger implant

In general Buttock Implants can be placed
1: sub-fascial
2: intramuscular
The size of the implant depends on the buttock measurement and the desired shape

  I place the implant within the muscle and place implants of reasonable size to reduce the incidence of complications.   You will hear differing viewpoints for placement.
