If you have the implant under the muscle and need another op further down the line, can you go under the muscle again?

It is fine to keep the implants in the same plane when replacing them.
Your surgeon is right in saying that you may need another operation in the future and this is something to consider.
However, when changing implants, it is perfectly reasonable to keep them in the same plane, so if you have implants put under the muscle now, it will be fine to have them replaced with implants under the muscle.
Make sure your surgeon is a fully trained plastic surgeon by looking for the letters FRCS(Plast) after his or her name. The plastic surgery associations BAAPS and BAPRAS have a list of members. Good luck.
Implants under the muscle once only -is it true?
