Breast implants - over or under the muscle?

It’s true that every body is different, so when it comes to breast implants, one size doesn’t fit all! You’ll probably know that there are different kinds of implants that come in all shapes and sizes - just like our boobs.

What you might not know is that the placement of the implant is just as important as its shape and size. Here are the different types of placements, what they mean, and information as to which one might be right for your breast augmentation!



Over-the-muscle implants sit in front of the breast muscle, giving a fuller shape to the breast. This kind of implant is best for those with naturally bigger boobs, as enough breast tissue is needed to cover the implant. Over-the-muscle implants are also a great way to add lift to sagging boobs.


This kind of implant sits behind the breast muscle, giving more padding to the implant. This is best for very slender women and those with very little breast tissue. Under-the-muscle implants result in a more natural breast shape - ideal for those with smaller frames.


Patient experience

From the age of 18, Amie had felt like her breast size and shape didn’t suit the rest of her body. She had considered having a breast enlargement for years, but there was one thing holding her back – fear. She remembers, “I was so afraid of having the surgery that I put it off for a long time. Eventually, I was so unhappy with the way I looked I decided it was time to do something. I booked my consultation, and just went for it!”

Amie loves the new opportunities available to her now. She laughs, “I am really happy with my post-surgery results! I can wear tops that I wouldn’t have been able to before, and I can wear underwear that I wouldn’t even have considered previously.
