Breast implants are placed within the breast pocket to add volume and to enhance overall breast shape. There are actually two separate breast implant placement options:
Above the muscle: In this position, the breast implant is placed directly behind the breast tissue, in front of the pectoral muscle that lays across the chest muscle.
Below the muscle: The breast implant can be placed behind the pectoral muscle of the chest, which provides more tissue coverage.
