Selecting the Right Incision for You

Each type of breast augmentation incision has advantages and disadvantages. Each incision placement is unique to each patient, and certain surgeons may have their incision preferences. Some factors that Dr. Cambeiro will use to make a specific surgical incision suggestion for your breast augmentation include:

  • Your body type
  • Natural tissue quality
  • Desired results
  • Breast implant selection
  • Whether or not your surgery will incorporate a breast lift
  • Your personal preferences

Here are the three dominant breast augmentation incisions employed by Dr. Cambeiro.

Transaxillary, a.k.a. Endoscopic Incision

Dr. Cambeiro was a regional pioneer in the use of this incision, which creates a natural-looking crease beneath the armpit. Capsular contracture is one risk associated with this incision, which is not best for silicone breast implants. But the many benefits of this approach include:

  • A discreet scar that’s not on the breast
  • Preserves nipple sensation
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Reduces complication risk

Inframammary Incision

This cut in the crease beneath the breast may result in a scar that's especially visible when you’re lying down. But its benefits include:

  • The scar is easily-concealed.
  • It works well with all implant types.
  • It allows your surgeon more mobility when positioning your implant.

Periareolar Incision

This incision along the lower edge of the areola leaves a discreet, easily-concealed scar. While its risks include capsular contracture, breastfeeding obstruction, and decreased nipple sensation, its benefits include:

  • Being well-suited to every type of breast implant
  • Allowing the surgeon better access for implant positioning
