Breast Augmentation Incision Options

Breast Augmentation Incision Options

If you want to have breast augmentation to improve the size or shape of your breasts, you have many options to ensure that you get the best breast augmentation for you. One of these options is to select a breast augmentation incision that is right for you.

Incisions that our surgeons uses for breast augmentation are:

  • Inframammary (in the breast crease)
  • Periareolar (around the areola)
  • Transaxillary (in the armpit)


All three incisions allow for excellent results and are well-concealed. Saline breast implants can be placed using all three incisions. Silicone breast implants cannot be placed using the transaxillary incision.

Inframammary incisions may be best if you are looking to correct asymmetric breasts. Periareolar incisions often produce the least visible scars. Transaxillary incision scars are very small and have the advantage of not being on the breasts.

During your consultation, our surgeons will discuss the incision options with you and which one might be best for getting the results you desire. Please call or email our Phoenix, Arizona office today.
