How do I choose between an areolar scar and an inframammary scar for under the muscle breast augmentation in Los Angeles? Los Angeles Board Certified Plastic Surgeon


How do I choose between an areolar scar and an inframammary scar for under the muscle breast augmentation in Los Angeles?


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a double board certified expert in breast augmentation breast enhancement surgery.  He is a diplomat of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a fellow of the American College of Surgeon.  Deciding on incision type including the periareolar and inframammary incision for breast augmentation depends largely on the initial consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian in our Los Angeles plastic surgery office.  During the consultation, Dr. Karamanoukian will carefully measure your breast dimension and breast volume in order to determine whether there is a greater chance for scarring with a periareolar scar or inframammary scar.  Both options are available, but selected criteria used to determine and choose one versus the other.  Dr. Karamanoukian uses a combination of techniques for breast augmentation including the submuscular or under the muscle technique, a subglandular or over the muscle breast implant, or a dual plane implant which is placed partially above and partially below the muscle.  Dr. Karamanoukian can determine whether you will need silicone or saline breast implants and help you determine a corrected profile and size of implant needed to augment your breast. 


If you have questions about incision choice for breast implant surgery within the Los Angeles area, please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office at 310-998-5553.  Dr. Karamanoukian performs plastic surgery and body contouring procedures in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.
