Breast augmentation with implants is one of the most popular procedures done today across the U.S., including Dallas, TX. However, before choosing to undergo breast augmentation surgery, one must take into consideration the many incision options available. Here, we will discuss the four main types of implant incision options.
This incision is made around the lower half of the areola. A pocket is made and the implant is placed through the incision. This type of incision camouflages any scarring quite well due to the darker color of the border of the areola.
The inframammary incision is made underneath the breast along the breast crease. The size of the incision depends on the type of implants chosen. This type of incision allows for close proximity to the treatment area, resulting in greater visibility for the surgeon.
This incision is not made on the breast at all, rather, it is made in the armpit. This incision is small, and is well hidden due to its inconspicuous location. Also, larger breast implants are often placed using this incision since implants cannot cause tension on the incision.
Transumbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA)
The TUBA breast augmentation is done via the belly button. This technique is a more difficult one since the surgeon is working farther away from the breast area. During this procedure, a small camera called an endoscope is used to help the surgeon better see what is occurring inside the body. Many women like this option because only one incision is needed to insert both breast implants.
All four of these incisions are made in discreet areas to hide any visible scarring. If you are interested in breast augmentation with implants, contact Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery today.
