Abstract Breast augmentation is by far one of the most common aesthetic procedures currently performed by plastic surgeons. The plane of dissection for prosthesis placement is quite often partial submuscular. The rectus sternalis, an nomalous muscle, may interfere with the submuscular pocket dissection when an intraalveolar or submammary approach is used. The use of this muscle to cover the prosthesis in its most medial part is presented.
