Breast Implants: Incision Placement
There are four basic options for implant placement. The armpit called transaxillary, below the areola called infraareolar, in the fold of the breast called inframammary, or through the belly button called TUBA transumbilical breast augmentation. There are advantages and disadvantages of each. The TUBA method is the most selective– only a saline implant can be used. Few people are good candidates for this method.
The most common and versatile method is the inframammary approach. The scar tends to be the smallest of all methods and does the best as far as shape and position of the breast.
The choice of incision will be decided with you at your consultation.
