There are three different incision locations used with breast augmentation:
- Inframammary -- incision is made near the lower breast fold
- Prei-areolar -- incision is made around the lower areolar border
- Transaxillary -- incision is made in the natural fold of the armpit
The best incision location for you will depend on a variety of factors, including the type of breast implant you choose and your desired scar location. Before expressing your preferences to Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir regarding your desired incision location, it is important to understand all of your options.
In the following video, Dr. Ali Mosharrafa discusses these three different breast augmentation incision options and explains why he prefers to use the inframammary incision with most of his patients.
You can learn about all of your breast augmentation options in greater detail by speaking with Dr. Ali or Dr. Tamir in person. Our Phoenix plastic surgeons will answer all of your questions and make individualized treatment recommendations during a consultation.
