When referring to the muscle in breast implant surgery, it is the pectoral muscle that is specifically being targeted. It is better to place the implant underneath the muscle according to Dallas physician, Robert J. Schwartz, M.D. There are three benefits to having the implant placed this way.
First, the results will simply look better and more natural because there is more padding. The muscle helps to support the weight of the implant, resulting in less sagging over time. Lastly, there is much less of an impact when it comes time to get mammograms. If the implant is placed over the muscle, a large part of the breasts gets blocked.
