Breast scarring after breast augmentation occurs because of the small incisions the surgeon must make through which the saline or silicone implant is placed. Women choosing to undergo breast augmentation are rightfully concerned with scarring that might linger following the procedure, since permanent, unattractive scars may negate the beautiful results of breast augmentation and negatively effect self-confidence.

At the cosmetic surgery practice of Dr. Robert V. Mandraccia in Fort Myers, Florida, we use highly specialized techniques, such as tiny nipple incision, Ebony Trans-Ax incision, infra-mammary and sub-mammary incisions designed to leave nearly invisible scars. Each patient undergoes allergy testing prior to surgery to avoid allergic reaction to the stitches, which can exacerbate scars. And of course, Dr. Mandraccia’s superior post-operative advice regarding the use of Vitamin E oil capsules or Vitamin A and E cream helps to further diminish the appearance of scars for our patients.

Dr. Mandraccia’s cosmetic surgery practice offers IV sedation right here in our own office and has recently been certified by the Florida Board of Health after meeting its stringent requirements. Procedures requiring general anesthesia are performed in the surgery center jointly owned by Lee Memorial and Naples Community Hospitals, conveniently located in the same building.

Do you lack confidence because of small or uneven breasts? Do you wish you could look more shapely in today’s fashions? If so, you are just one of millions of women unhappy with their breast size. At the Fort Myers, Florida cosmetic surgery practice of Dr. Robert V. Mandraccia, breast augmentation, also known as mammoplasty, is a popular procedure achieved with either a silicone or saline breast implant.

While many women focus on improving the size of their breasts, other considerations are also important. The type of implant chosen, the type of incision used, the placement area (directly under breast tissue or beneath the pectoral muscle?) and the texture of the implant are additional considerations that impact your final result and overall satisfaction with your breast augmentation procedure.

A private consultation with Dr. Mandraccia will help you decide these issues and choose the breast implant that is right for you. Remember that what looks great on someone else may not be right for you due to differences in body structure and shape. Your most satisfying and natural results will come from relying on Dr. Mandraccia, who offers more than 15 years of training and experience.
