Can deformity of the breast with muscle flexion be corrected?

The subfascial (or subglandular) technique generally eliminates this, but sometimes at the expense of inadequate coverage of the upper portion of the implant. A variation of the subfascial technique called the split muscle methodis often a good solution, where coverage of the upper portion of the implant is needed.
