What are the common incision approaches for breast implant surgery?

Answer:

Breast implants commonly are placed through three incisions. They can be placed through a transaxillary approach (via the armpit), through an inframammary approach (under the breast fold), and through a periareolar approach (along the lower areola border). The most common approach is via the inframammary fold. I prefer either the inframammary or periareolar approach. I feel that they give the best exposure for the procedure and the  most control to resolve any issues that can develop during the procedure. Back to Questions
