Where exactly is the butt implant placed and what are the benefits when it´s in a sub-muscular position?
Doctor Answers 3
I'm not a big fan of sub muscular positioning of buttock implants. I find that it keeps the implants too high when the muscle is flexed and hinders the projection of the implant. intra muscular and sub facial placements are best , in my opinion, for most patients. Keep in mind I've been doing this operation longer than most surgeons in the country and have written many published pieces on the subject. Be sure to choose a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes in buttock implants and has an extensive photo gallery.
Buttock implant position
A superficial intra muscular plane is the best position for your implant as this position will provide you protection from infection, protection from implant malposition, yet not compromise overall projection. This is the most ideal position for all patients. Please see examples below.
