Which Breast Augmentation Incision is the Best? | MarylandThere are many decisions involved in your breast augmentation procedure. One of the most important choices you have is which incision site is right for your body and your desired results. Luckily, you don't have to make this decision blind. Our board-certified plastic surgeon can help you figure out the details. Taking into consideration your preferred breast size and implant type, Dr. Chiaramonte will recommend one of these three incisions:

Inframammary (Underneath Your Breast)

This incision site is one of the most popular choices because it provides Dr. Chiaramonte with full access to your pectoral muscle. This is best for large and/or silicone gel implants. The scar is easily concealed, and this surgical process doesn't hinder your breastfeeding capabilities.

Transaxillary (Under Arm)

Our plastic surgeon uses endoscopic placement via an incision made in the fold of your armpit to position your implant underneath your pectoral muscle. This breast augmentation variation avoids scarring your actual breast, and the small wound heals quickly.

Periareolar (Nipple)

The periareolar incision involves the diameter of your areola, or nipple. This process can work for both saline and silicone breast implants. The periareolar technique is often used to adjust implants you may already have. There could be some added difficulty with breastfeeding, and you have an increased risk of loss of sensation with this option.
