Will Thigh Implants Result in Loss Of Muscle Strength?

Q: Dr. Eppley,I had a quick question regarding thigh implants under the quadriceps muscles. Due to them being placed inside the quads will it result in decreased muscle gain in the thighs or decreased strength long term?

A: In regards to thigh implants they are placed under the fascia but on top of the quadriceps msucle. (rectus femoris and lateralis) not under them. I am not aware that this  causes any long term muscle injury, atrophy or weakness.
