What are my Breast Augmentation Incision Options?


Breast Augmentation Incision Options ModelWith Dr. Mandraccia, your breast augmentation procedure will always be performed with your needs in mind. Because each patient is unique, it's important for your procedure to be customized according to your individual goals. One option you will have is the location of your breast augmentation incision.

At Dr. Mandraccia's office, our Ft. Myers plastic surgeon can help you determine which incision option is right for your aesthetic needs.

There are different benefits and limitations associated with each breast incision option:

  • Incision around the nipple (periariolar) - Produces a less obvious scar but is generally too small for silicone breast implants.
  • Incision under the breast (inframammary) - Produces an inconspicuous scar under the fold of the breast and can accommodate both silicone and saline breast implants.
  • Armpit incision (transaxillary) - Though there won't be any breast scarring, the transaxillary scar can be harder to hide and will limit your breast augmentation options to saline implants.

In order to achieve the results you want most, it's important to understand the advantages and limitations of each incision option. The incision location for your breast augmentation procedure will have a significant impact on your overall experience.
