       Before breast argumentation, there are a couple of things that the surgeon and the patient involved must resolve. Of course, the implant size and incision choice are essential, but one of the most important questions is whether the implant should be placed behind or above the muscles. Just like with many things in plastic surgery, different patients will be appealed by different options, depending on their goals.


Let’s take a look at the under the muscle placement (sub-muscular placement).
In sub-muscular placement, bossom implants are positioned behind the pectoral muscle in your chest via an inframammary crease incision or the areola incision. With this technique, the breast tissue and pectoral muscle are covering the implants thus creating a more natural look. Other benefits of chest implants behind the muscle include:
1. Less interference with mammograms
Even with advancements in technology allowing for better breast imaging with or without implants, sub-muscular placement is thought to improve mammography. This is because the technique makes it less likely that the breast implant will inhibit proper imaging of the breast tissues.
2. Reduces risk of capsular contracture development
The use of smooth implants behind the pectoralis muscles helps to reduce the rate of capsular contracture to less than 10%. The extra bulk of muscle over the inner and upper features of the implants makes the curve of the breast appear more natural and the edges less visible, especially in thinner women. Also, under muscle implants reduce the risk of getting a painful capsular contracture.
3. Reduced risk of visible rippling
Submuscular replacement in women with little breast tissue is likely to reduce any likelihood of rippling of the implant. This should be true irrespective of what might have caused the rippling (textured surface or under filling) because muscle and breast tissues fully or partially cover the implant.
4. Late sag requiring repair
Sagging is less frequent but may occur after pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, in most sub-muscular placements, specialists agree that the implant is better supported than in the above muscle placements, resulting in long-term breast augmentation and less sagging. This technique offers better support to the implants and reduces the strain on one’s skin. It’s also a safer option for individuals seeking simultaneous breast lift since it can maintain better blood flow to the nipple.
The right implant placement will typically depend on whether you opt for saline or silicone implants.
