Breast Augmentation Incision Options

Your cosmetic surgeon may use one of the following breast augmentation incision techniques depending on the desired outcome and existing anatomy:

  1. Inframammary

A short incision will be made in the breast crease (inframammary fold). This technique results in a thin scar that gets concealed easily within the breast crease. A major advantage of this technique is a wider access point which allows the surgeon to precisely insert larger silicone implants.

  1. Peri-areolar

This type of incision is made on the areola’s outer edge. The resulting scar gets hidden within the natural pigmentation. This type of incision is mainly used when breast augmentation is performed in combination with mild to moderate breast lift.

  1. Trans-axillary

A small incision is made in this technique within the armpit. The cosmetic surgeon will use this incision to insert the breast implant using specialized instruments and camera. There is no scarring on the breasts in this technique.

I couldn’t be any happier with my results!! The entire process was such an amazing & positive experience and one I will never forget. I was treated like a person rather than a number. Everyone, from the staff at Dr. Baumholtz’s office to the staff at the surgical center were so comforting and reassuring. Renee and Katherine at the office have been more than great, and the surgical center staff were so professional and caring. All my questions & concerns were addressed and I felt like part of a family. Thank you to all who were involved on my journey!!
