How Will Dr. Gayoso Determine My Breast Augmentation Incision?

May 21, 2012

Dr. Gayoso uses three different breast augmentation incisions: the inframammary (at the breast crease), the periareolar (at the lower edge of the colored area around the nipple), and the transaxillary (in the armpit). He will listen to your preferences about which incision you desire, but there are some limitations that may make certain incisions poor choices for your procedure.

Most women get great results from breast augmentation using the inframammary incision, but if you do not have a well-developed breast crease, it may not be recommended for you.

The periareolar incision is also generally a good incision choice, but if you have a small areola, it may not allow a long enough incision for inserting the breast implant. There is no increased risk of loss of nipple sensation or breastfeeding problems associated with the periareolar incision.

Transaxillary incisions are good for all sizes of saline breast implants. However, larger silicone breast implants may not be able to be inserted this way.

During your consultation, Dr. Gayoso will discuss all your breast augmentation options, including the incision location. Then you will make a decision together about which incision is right for you.
