Lots of women have unders, nothing to be worried about. I have them. it's usually when you don't have enough breast tissue that unders are done.

Cookie has a great diagram of unders and overs. Under to partially under the muscle, the top part of the implant is covered by muscle. Overs are over the muscle yet behind the breast tissue.
Unders are usually done where there is very littler no breast tissue to cover the implant.

Contactbyour surgeon Hun and ask what cc you will be having and what projection. Even the make and manufacturer od the implant x

Hi, I have unders as I was completely flat chested and had no breast tissue. You definitely need to find out from your surgeon what make of implants, size and projection you will be having. I had my first ba 13 years ago and was told nothing. Only found out when my new surgeon rang them to find out what they are. i realised this time that I need to know what is going in my body for the next 10 years plus we went through the catalogues and sizes together along with my measurements to make sure I agreed with his recommendation.

Congrats on being accepted! I'm an NHS case having mine done on Monday! yahoo
Had my pre op today and I stiill don't know much about what implant I'm having other than they will be mentor anatomical and around the 300cc mark!
Have tried calling the PS's secretary all afternoon as suggested by the nurse this morn as there are no implant details on my notes but no joy!
Getting a little panicky not knowing is killing me!
Good luck on your journey xx

You've nothing at all to be concerned about hun.

The placement of the implant is based on the amount of coverage (breast tissue, or body fat) you have to cover an implant so that the edges aren't visible - think posh spice! Shocked

If you have little or no breast tissue then the best option to place the implant under the muscle. The muscle then acts as a kind of cushion then so that the implant isn't visible.

See the diagram below: the first is over the muscle, the second is partially under.

So you've nothing to be concerned about babe. Your surgeon has simply chosen the best placement to suit your body type. X
