What are the three main incision types for breast augmentation? Los Angeles Breast Augmentation

What are the three main incision types for breast augmentation?


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian performs breast augmentation using saline or silicone breast implants under general anesthesia in an outpatient surgery center.  There are several different incision patterns that can optimize your cosmetic results for breast augmentation, including the periareolar approach, inframammary approach, and axillary approach for incisions. 


The individual characteristics and measurements of your breast will help determine whether you are a candidate for the areolar or the inframammary incision.  The decision is based on the dimensions of your areola, the tightness of the lower pole of the breast, the need for attainment of a more fuller cleavage pattern, and the ultimate breast size needed for breast enhancement.  With respect to the incisions, all three incision patterns can be performed with minimal cosmetic sequelae.
