We want you to get the most out of your consultation. If at all possible, it is best to make arrangements for small children to stay home rather than having them join us for your appointments.

Every Arizona breast augmentation patient is unique, and our surgeons makes it their priority to ensure that they perform each cosmetic procedure with your individual needs in mind. Our Phoenix plastic surgeons offer three different breast augmentation incision options to help you achieve your personal aesthetic goals.

In order to obtain optimal results, it’s important to understand the advantages and limitations of each incision option:

  • Incision below the areola (periariolar) – This incision will produces a less obvious scar but is generally too small for silicone breast implants.
  • Incision at the breast crease (inframammary) – This incision will result in an inconspicuous scar under the breast fold and can accommodate both silicone and saline breast implants.
  • Incision in the armpit (transaxillary) – This option will keep scarring away from the breast, but the alternative scar can be more difficult to conceal and will limit your breast augmentation to saline implants.

The incision location for your breast augmentation procedure will have a significant impact on your overall experience, so it’s important to consult with a professional to determine which method is right for you.
