Making the right cut – Breast Enlargement Incision Types
Breast enlargement, also known as breast augmentation or boob job, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures practiced all over the world. There are numerous reasons to get boob job done, but there is only one reason that deters most women and that is formation of visible permanent scars after breast augmentation surgery.
Many women believe that developing a scar after breast surgery is unavoidable, which is not wrong, but not every scar remains lumpy and red forever. The nature and type of scar that you develop after Breast Enlargement surgery as well as your scar’s pattern depends primarily on which surgical method your plastic surgeon chooses. The most common incision pattern practiced all over the world is the “Anchor Pattern”. It runs around the nipple, on the border of the areola, down the centre of the breast and ends at the crease of the skin beneath each breast.
Another most popular incision technique used for scarless breast enlargement is called “Periareolar”. This technique also involves making an incision right around the nipple. The scar that forms using this technique is nearly invisible as it is concealed at the border between the nipple and the breast.
“Inframammary” incisions involve making a cut under the breast, in the crease where the breasts and the chest meet. This type of cut not only leads to the best concealed scars but also allows the surgeon the best visibility inside the breast. They can see easily the glandular tissues inside the breast and prepare the pocket to put the implant in.
It is pertinent to mention here that there is nothing like “Scarless breast enlargement surgery”. The term is generally used to describe surgical techniques which lead to the formation of either small scars or scars that are so aesthetically designed that the shape and color of breasts naturally camouflage it.
