When it comes to breast augmentation, women have many options regarding the size, type and placement of silicone implants. The best way to determine whether under or over the muscle is best for you is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with your plastic surgeon. 

The Benefits of Over the Muscle Breast Implants

Some of the benefits associated with the over the muscle method include:

  • Since the silicone prosthesis is placed under the breast tissue, above the pectoral muscles, breast surgery is easier and less invasive

  • There is no distortion with movement

  • Post-operative recovery is less painful, and the recovery process is shorter because the muscle remains intact

  • There is less risk of bleeding

The Benefits of Under the Muscle Breast Implants

Under the muscle method is the placement of a breast implant under the pectoral muscle in the chest. Placement under the muscle has the advantage of looking more natural because your breast tissue and muscle surround the silicone prosthesis. Other benefits of submuscular insertion include:

  • Less common risk of rippling

  • Provides a better view in mammography 

  • Since the muscle supports the prosthesis, it reduces the tension and load on your skin. 

  • Future or simultaneous breast uplift surgery is easier with under muscle placement, as blood flow to the nipple is preserved.In general, in the sub-muscular method, there may be a longer recovery period after surgery.
