If you are thinking of having breast augmentation, there are three incision options to discuss with Dr. Mark Crispin before your procedure is scheduled. Each option comes with its own set of pros and cons. The option you select should depend on your individual body type, whether or not you are concerned about visible scarring, and whether you plan to breastfeed after the surgery.

It is very common for Atlanta women contemplating breast augmentation to seek extensive information about the three most common breast augmentation incision options. These options are:

  • Inframammary – This option involves an incision in the area where the rib cage and the breast come together. It is the most common option and involves a scar that is well hidden.
  • Peri-Areolar – This option is not as common because it can impede the future ability to breasfeed. Also, it tends to result in the loss of nipple sensation.
  • Transaxillary – Some opt for this option because it does not involve any type of scar on the breast. Instead, an incision is made under the arm – which may result in a scar that is visible when you raise your arm or wear anything sleeveless.
