What Are My Breast Augmentation Incision Options?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


The breast augmentation is an exceptionally customizable procedure. Denver-area women considering breast surgery have a wide range of options to choose from when they’re preparing for the procedure. This ensures that your breast augmentation meets your needs and priorities.

One of the choices you’ll be able to make is among different incision options. You will have three options for the location of your incision. All will allow you a smooth, successful breast augmentation experience, but they each come with their own unique advantages.

Your choices are:

  • An inframammary incision, which is made under the breast crease. This is popular and versatile and requires only a small, easily hidden incision. It’s ideal for silicone breast implants.
  • A peri-areolar incision, which is made in the areola complex around your nipple. This results in a thin scar that blends with the skin of the areola and works well with both silicone and saline breast implants.
  • A transaxillary incision, which is made in the armpit. The most subtle and easily hidden incision location. This is also ideal for a sub-muscular implant placement.

Again, the important factors are your safety and your priorities. You can count on our experienced plastic surgeons to help you find a breast surgery option that is appropriate for both of those considerations.
