For many women, an attractive bust line is an important part of feeling self–confident and sexy. Often times, the aging process, breastfeeding, weight changes, or hormonal shifts can alter the natural appearance of the breasts. For patients who desire an increase in volume and/or size for small or underdeveloped breasts, breast augmentation can create a more desirable silhouette.
Breast augmentation involves the placement of breast implants either above or beneath the breast muscle to create a natural, beautiful looking bust. Many potential patients ask about where incisions (the entry point of the breast implant) are placed. The most common incision placements are underneath your breast or around the lower edge of your areola (the pigmented skin around the nipple). These sites are chosen specifically to minimize any scarring since they are concealed in the natural folds of the body. After the incision, a pocket is created for the implant in the space between your breast and your chest wall. Depending on your breast implant placement, the pocket will be either behind your natural breast tissue or behind the muscle.
