Augmentation Incisions — Los Angeles Breasts
The breast augmentation incisions for implants depend on the preferences of the patient and the surgeon, along with the type of implant being used. The good news is that there are a lot of options available, which can only increase a patient’s overall satisfaction with their surgery.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Hughes can create the augmentation incisions through the belly button, armpit, crease of the breast, or along the areola’s border.
The belly button and armpit incision locations provide the most discretion. With these locations, it is more difficult to notice any post-surgical marks once incisions are fully healed.
However, these options do limit the patient in terms of the type and size of the implant being used.
The most common breast augmentation incision locations are along the fold of the breast and around the border of the areola.
Dr. Hughes will discuss the details and suggest the best approach during your consultation. If you would like to schedule an appointment, contact our Los Angeles office.
