When undergoing breast augmentation, many patients may be concerned about scarring. Scarring is part of the procedure that results after an incision is made for the implant’s insertion, but there are different solutions and can be minimized depending on your anatomy, the procedure style, implant type and your personal preferences.
There are three most common incision types. Most incisions are made below the breast (inframammary), along the edge of the areola (periareolar), or in the armpit (transaxillary). The incision size will often be determined by the type of implant. For example saline implants are filled after insertion and thus, require a smaller incision.
