Breast Implant Incision Decisions
One of the most asked questions about breast augmentation is where the incision is made. When choosing which incision site to use we rely a lot on your own anatomy. Typically, we like to hide the incision at the natural breast crease allowing for the least trauma to the tissue and milk ducts. In some cases we can also use an areola incision. At your complimentary consultation with Dr. Ciaravino we are able to discuss your breast implant incision options. The size of the incision is about 1 inch with saline and 1 ¼ inch with silicone. You will also receive a prescription strength scar gel to help diminish the appearance of the scar. Please call our office if you have questions about breast implant incisions or any of other surgical procedures.
