I primarily place implants under the muscle which technically is not full muscle coverage but the upper 1/3 to 1/2.  I think this is what you are talking about in your question.

Hello and thank you for your question.  I almost always place breast implants under the muscle and the patient's normal breast tissue sits nicely over this for a natural look. The most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified expert surgeon who can evaluate you in person.

Best wishes and good luck.

This is not clear -- if you have implants under the muscle, your natural breast tissue is normally above the muscle partially and partially above the implant. Not sure what you are asking about.

I traditionally place breast implants under-the-muscle, followed by the muscle and the patient's own breast tissue over that.   I recommend an in-office examination as well as a detailed discussion with a surgeon who you are comfortable with and who is a board-certified Plastic Surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Not sure what you are describing.  I have seen 1 or 2 cases of patients who have had "stacked" implants (present for revisionary breast surgery).  Not something I would recommend. Best wishes.
