Breast Augmentation Incision Approach Overview By on February 20, 2011

One of the best ways to enhance the appearance and boost a woman’s entire figure is by getting breast augmentation surgery. At our Little Rock plastic surgery office, we have helped many women achieve the enhancement that they have been seeking.

What some patients may not realize, however, is that there is more to breast augmentation surgery than just picking the size of the breast implants. In fact, there’s more to it than just going with saline breast implants or silicone breast implants. One of the most important considerations is the incisions used to perform the surgery.

In general, there are four different incisions sites that can be used to performed breast augmentation surgery. Deciding which incision site will be used will depend on a number of factors, including body type, breast implant size and filling, and other matters. That said, when you come to us for a Little Rock breast augmentation surgery, we will discuss all of this with you in greater depth. Let’s look at these incision options right now, however.

One incision site that may be used is along the underside of the breasts. This means a small incision placed in the contour fold/crease where the breast meets the chest. Another incision that may be used is located around the areola, the darker portion of the skin around the nipple. In both the breast fold incision and the areola incision, the scars will be more visible, though they are relatively discreet and will fade over time.

Two other incisions may be used, and these will better conceal surgical scars. One such incision is hidden in the armpit, which means that few will realize that you have undergone a breast augmentation. The other potential incision site is the belly button. Yes, you may be able to have your breast implants placed via the navel. Both of these are better for concealing any scarring after the surgery is performed.

If you want more information about breast augmentation surgery and breast implants, we encourage you to contact our Little Rock cosmetic surgery office for a consultation. We look forward to meeting with you to discuss these matters in person.
