How We Reduce Breast Implant Scars
At The Plastic Surgery Center in Maryland, breast enlargement with breast implants is one of our most popular cosmetic procedures that we perform. Our plastic surgeon—Dr. Rosenberg—receives many of questions each day about the breast enlargement procedure. One of the most frequently asked questions is, “do breast implants leave scars?”
Fortunately, plastic surgery has evolved greatly in recent years, with new surgical techniques introduced regularly that aim to reduce scaring. Some of the most frequently used techniques include:
Transaxillary Breast Implant Incision
This option involves your plastic surgeon making an incision and inserting your breast implant through your armpit.
Periareolar Breast Implant Incision
A periareolar incision is an incision made through the areola. This is a very popular incision site as it offers a very minimal chance of scarring.
Inframammary Breast Implant Incision
This option involves your plastic surgeon making an incision where the bottom of your breast meets your chest.
Transumbilical Breast Implant Method
Also known as the TUBA method, this incision options endoscopically places the implant—believe it or not—through your belly button. Because the incision is hidden inside your belly button, this option also leads to very minimal visible scarring.
Which Breast Implant Incision Option Is Right for You?
All breast implant scars and incision lines will fade over time. However, your plastic surgeon can help you decide which incision option is right for you. In general, this will depend on the type of breast implant, the size of the breast implant, and your body type.
If you’re interested in breast implants and live in Maryland, Dr. Rosenberg will help you with all of the details of your breast enlargement during your consultation.
