Breast Augmentation Incision Types
Regardless of what type of implants you choose, an incision will be necessary for any type of breast augmentation placement. Common incisions used for breast augmentation in Stone Oak, TX include:
Periareolar incision – This incision is made around the areola and once healed, can be rather inconspicuous.
Inframammary incision – The incision is made in the crease beneath the breast and is probably the most easily hidden type of incision.
Transaxillary incision – This incision is made where the armpit meets the breast.
The type of incision technique used will be determined by Dr. Homas and the type of augmentation you will be receiving. Once the incision is made, the implants are placed through the opening either on top of or underneath the chest muscle.
