Breast Augmentation Incisions and Your Results

There are a few different locations where your breast implant incision can be created. During a consultation with Dr. Dean Kleto, you can discuss which incision will be best for you and your goals.

Generally, the only affect incision location has upon results is determining where your scars will be located. The incision options for breast augmentation are:

  • Inframammary – in the fold beneath your breast
  • Periareolar – around the nipple
  • Transaxillary – through the armpit

In all of these cases, the scar can be created minimally so that it is unobtrusive beneath lingerie and bathing suits. All of these scars will be relatively well concealed, although Dr. Kleto prefers the inframammary incision for the least visible, most effective incision location.

The inframammary incision also enables Dr. Kleto to have optimal control over the results of your breast augmentation. With this type of incision, Dr. Kleto has direct access to your breast and can effectively control the placement of the breast implant and make sure you get the results you expect.

During a consultation with Dr. Kleto, you can discuss your incision options and which will work for you. Your expectations, goals and the details of your surgery will all be considered.
