  • Following. I’m leaning toward overs due to the possibility of animation deformity and Personally I’m not really wanting them to cut a major muscle that I use frequently.

  • Following also. I’m leaning toward unders after talking to several mammo techs.   I really like to see and hear opinions.

  • I have under due to not starting out with a lot of breast tissue and my small(ish) frame- unders would give me the most natural look.

    • MammaBear3 they are so beautiful! 😍😍 goals right there! Is it that unders make it more natural and overs look more fake? Is that the difference in why people choose unders?

      MommyBearHunter awe thank you! I still have a love/hate relationship with them! I think it just depends on the person and then weather saline or silicon. I have seen some over that look natural so it’s hard telling! Good luck at your consult-keep is updated :)

  • I had unders 7 years ago because i was worried about breast cancer if you have unders you will see and feel any lumps etc, also you can still breast feed with unders.

    • 7066vicky ive already done my share of breast feeding 😂 Ive waited until I was done having kids before I decided to do this because I am getting muscle repair and the tummy tuck as well!

  • I had unders and it seriously messed up my right side.  Nerve pain, arm numbness, etc.   I had mine removed and I still have nerve issue, arm issues, and animation deformity.  Yup, even with them out you can still get deformity.  Apparently it’s not uncommon.  And yes, I went to an amazing surgeon.  Some people just don’t tolerate having their muscles mucked with.  🤷🏻‍♀️

    • GreyRabbit i am so sorry to hear that you went through that. I did see researching alot of women experience nerves damage from it. Thats why I am so nervous and just ready to talk to my surgeon. As bad I as I want my body back from having kids its not worth it to me to be unhealthy because of it.

      MommyBearHunter yeah, I knew the risk was small but I still got unlucky.  I guess I learned it doesn’t matter how small the risk is no one is exempt from being the statistic.  But having chronic daily pain for the better part of almost a year really sucks.

  • I got overs because I had enough tissue and am very active. I didn’t want to worry about potentially not being able to work my chest. I love mine! And recovery has been super easy.

    • Spduren you look amazing! Your arms too girl! 😍 I love working out too and we all stay pretty active as a family. My aunt has overs too and has really been wanting me to get them as well because of the exercising and she says they are less dangerous. I just wasn't sure exactly the difference until now.

  • I’m almost two years out from getting unders, and go in on Tuesday to get them switched to overs. I have terrible animation deformity (I’m a climber and heavy lifter). I also really bad lateral displacement, which means I get no cleavage and “armpit boobs.” I’d definitely get more than one consult. I went to the first doctor I heard good things about and am terribly disappointed.

    • Katie Lynn I'm sorry to hear what you've been through! 😭 its so disheartening to see women up here struggling when just wanting to feel better about themselves. I hope your surgery goes well! Thank you for your input.

  • MommyBearHunter I am getting dual plane...part under the muscle. I am doing this for several reasons.

    1) I have practically zero breast tissue.

    2) I want to be able to have mammograms etc which will allow for better visibility than overs.

    3) lower risk of capsular contracture.

     

    I will have the usual risks with any augmentation plus:

    animation deformity and more pain and therefore longer recovery.

     

    I think the risks outweigh going over.

    Going over the muscle means more difficult viewing for breast cancer on mammogram, higher risk of capsular contracture, rippling of the implant (especially with saline) and higher chance of seeing the implant. If u have plenty of tissue in your breast already then u shouldn’t see the implant. 

     

    My my cousin and her mum got overs. Both of them have capsular contracture but they’re happy with their outcomes besides that. Keep us posted!!

    • RizzleArm thank you so much! That was very helpful!. I have a small frame and deflated 34 B, I have breast fed twice and from weight loss they honestly dont even fully fill out a B cup. I am seeing now my best decision will be based on my surgeon's opinion and mine together. I will definitely just be patient and just wait to speak with him. Thank you again!

      MommyBearHunter you sound just like my deflated “B” cup. I say “B” because I barely fill it. I think I’m wider but definitively not full!! And an A is uncomfortable.

      RizzleArm Be aware rippling can occur with overs or unders if you have little breast tissue, as well the implant can be visible (and you can feel it). Don't be alarmed, as it may not happen or might not be that noticeable, but I did not think these things were possible with unders until I got mine. After I got them, then the doctors and nurses were like oh yeah... that happens... Great thanks. I don't know why research is so inconsistent on a surgery that has been around so long. When I first noticed rippling, I was kind of shocked. My doctor/nurses dismissed it the first time I mentioned it. The second time my doctor offered to lipo some fat from somewhere else to inject in my chest. I was like nah. Anyhow, just saying this so expectations are managed. I feel like I learned a lot of things post op. I'm like where was all of this info before?!! I swear I felt like I did a TON of research. Gah.

  • Daj what type of implants did you get? Yes I did know that you can get rippling under the muscle as well but it is definitely less obvious than overs. I’m asking for highly cohesive gel implants so that it’s less likely for there to be rippling too. I’m hoping they will turn out ok.

     

    I also find that there’s so much more than what I thought I already knew! There are so many post-operative complications that I see on Bustmob. Sometimes I wonder what on earth I am doing!
