Westchester NY Breast Implant Surgery- results with saline implants

Procedure Details


Breast augmentation incisions

  • Surgery for breast implants requires a small incision somewhere near the breast
  • Most studies show that the greatest safety and ease of surgery occurs when incision is made in the fold under the breast
  • An incision in the areola can be used in certain circumstances though there are some drawbacks
  • The incision is limited in size, therefore, it is a better incision for smaller implants or saline implants that can be inflated once they are inside the breast
  • There can be microscopic bacteria on the nipple, therefore it must be protected from touching the implant using sterile bandages during surgery
  • Too much pulling or stretching through this incision and could potentially result in numbness of the nipple
  • Therefore, doctors must plan carefully which patients receive and areola incision
  • This was the right incision for this patient and everything turned out beautifully
