There are many different incision options when it comes to breast augmentation surgery. The most popular incision location for placing breast implants is the inframammary fold, which is located underneath the breast where the chest and breast meet.
The inframammary incision is generally inconspicuous, especially with modern post-surgical care. This location also allows more control for placement of the breast implants by the plastic surgeon.
Breast augmentation is usually an outpatient procedure. This means that the procedure is done in a surgery suite, and the patient goes home immediately after the surgery.
To learn more about breast implants and the available options, contact board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Michael Thomassen at our Fort Lauderdale office to arrange an appointment for a private consultation.
