What are the different options for incisions made during a breast augmentation? How is the skin cut to insert breast implants? Which incisions are best for different women, and how is scarring minimized?
Dr. Robert Caridi of Westlake Plastic Surgery in Austin, Texas has performed thousands of breast augmentations and describes the different options for incisions.
The gold standard is the inframammary incision, made in the breast fold where the lower part of the breast meets the chest wall. This type of incision is the most common and the most reliable.
The second option is made in the areola border, and this incision option can be used for patients who have a sharp demarcation between the areola and the skin.
The third option for incision made during a breast augmentation is called a transaxillary incision and is made under the arm at the axillary apex. This options is more appropriate for saline implants.
The last option for incisions made during a breast augmentation is called the transumbilical incision or tuba incision. This option is limited to saline implants and is not recommended by Dr. Caridi.
