Types Of Breast Procedures

  • Transaxillary (armpit) incision – Transaxillary breast augmentation is a technique where the incisions are made in the armpits so that the implants can be inserted. This technique is done using an endoscope (microscopic camera) so the surgeon can see exactly what they’re doing. The big benefit to this technique is that there are no scars left on the breasts themselves.
  • Periareolar (minimal scar) incision – Periareolar breast augmentation is performed by inserting the implants through incisions made in the lower edge of the areola. Although the incisions are made on the surface of the breasts, they are quite well hidden due to their placement.
  • Inframammary (beneath breast) incision – Inframammary breast augmentation is done by inserting the implants in incisions made where the breasts meet the chest wall. Depending on the size of implants used and the patient’s current breast size and shape, the scars left behind by inframammary breast augmentation are often hidden from plain site.
Which should I get?

Given the different options available concerning how a breast augmentation can be performed, you might be wondering which is the best for you. This will really depend since each approach comes with its own advantages. If you are certain that you don’t want there to be any scarring at all on the breasts themselves then transaxillary breast augmentation is the best choice.

If you’re not certain about which is the right approach then this isn’t something to worry about. Dr Lynam has a huge amount of experience with breast augmentation and can advise you on what the best approach is for your unique body type and goals at your consultation.
