The Inframammary Incision is a Safe and Versatile Breast Augmentation Technique

By The Landings Surgical Centre on November 21, 2015


Woman with her arms folded over her breastsFew women are naturally blessed with the bust line they desire, but that doesn’t mean they can’t achieve the shape and size that they’ve always wanted. Breast augmentation enhances the bust line to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals and improve their self-confidence. However, just what that ideal bust line looks like will vary from patient to patient, which is exactly why breast augmentation surgery is customized to meet each patient’s specific needs. One way this is done is through the surgical incision. The inframammary breast augmentation incision is popular at our Nova Scotia practice, Landings Surgical Centre, because of its safety, precision, and versatility.

Placement of the Inframammary Incision

The inframammary incision is placed along the inframammary fold. This is located at the bottom of the breast near the crease between the breast and chest wall. This is an ideal location for a number of reasons. It allows easy access to the breast pocket, it can accommodate multiple placement and implant options, and it results in an easily hidden scar. For these reasons and others, the inframammary incision is one most commonly used for breast augmentation.

Pros of the Inframammary Incision

There are many advantages to the inframammary incision that make it such a popular option among our patients. Below are some of the benefits of the inframammary incision:

  • This incision gives our surgeon enhanced control and precision over the placement of the breast implant, which is especially important when creating the shape of the breasts.
  • By using this technique, our surgeon can create both implant pockets before placing the breast implants. These pockets can then be compared for consistency and symmetry, in order to ensure that the breasts will look even after surgery.
  • This incision allows the surgeon to avoid cutting into the breast glands, which exposes the breasts to less trauma, and eliminates the risk of potential complications with breastfeeding.
  • Should any other complications arise after surgery, and a secondary procedure is necessary, the inframammary incision can be used again.
  • The inframammary incision accommodates saline and silicone implants, as well as those that are large and small.
  • The scar that results from an inframammary incision is minimal, and is easily hidden beneath the natural breast crease.

Cons of the Inframammary Incision

The advantages of the inframammary incision are overwhelming, which is why it is such a common option. However, it does have some drawbacks that should be considered before choosing this technique.

  • This technique does leave a small scar on the breast, and the scar may be visible if the patient is lying down, or if the breast is lifted.
  • Should breast implants be removed at some point, the scar may end up falling beneath the crease of the breast, and will therefore be visible.

All of the drawbacks are considered minimal by most patients and are especially minor when compared to the benefits of this breast augmentation technique.

Schedule a Consultation

If you’d like to improve the shape or size of your breasts, breast augmentation is most likely your best option. Schedule a consultation with one of the experienced plastic surgeons at the Landings Surgical Centre to learn more about this procedure and how it can be personalized to your unique needs. We look forward to hearing from you!
