Types of incision sites
The incision sites for implant insertion include armpit incision, areola incision, inframammary incision and navel incision.
- Case1) Armpit incision
- This method is preferred by single women as it does not leave scars on the breasts or touch the subglandular tissue. In particular, the armpit tissue presents relatively good blood circulation to leave fewer scars. As the endoscope-based surgical method became more common recently, it overcome the difficulty of securing a clear view, the weakness of the armpit incision method.
- Case2) Areola incision
- This method is appropriate for models or celebrities that frequently expose their armpits as scars are formed in the areola area. Furthermore, it is more suitable for augmentation mammoplasty rather than revision surgery or breast lifting surgery. This method can be used to improve the shape of breast and is useful in the implementation of augmentation mammoplasty that is combined with the multi-layer breast enlargement or breast lift.
- Case3) Inframammary incision)
- The scarring left by this method is more noticeable when compared with other incision methods. Although this method is not used in Asian women due to large scarring, it is implemented when difficulties are presented for armpit incision and areola incision cannot be achieved due to the small size of areola.
- Case4) Navel incision
- Although this method is advantageous in that scars are formed in the navel area, this method presents difficulties in forming line below breasts and can only insert saline solution. As the cohesive gel is normally used in the present day, this method is rarely used.
