He truly listens to each of his patients, taking into consideration their unique needs and goals and providing them with the expert guidance they need to make the most informed decisions regarding their surgery. In the case of breast augmentation, there are a lot of decisions to be made, and all of them can have a profound effect on the final result. Patients can choose not only the size, shape, and texture of the breast implant, but also where the implant is placed and the type and location of incision through which it is placed.

One of the most popular incision techniques is the areolar breast augmentation incision. At our Fort Worth, TX plastic surgery practice, Dr. Rumalla explains this and other incision techniques to patients during their initial consultation, advising them as to which would be best suited to their particular cases. Are you a good candidate for breast augmentation using the areolar incision technique? The only way to know for sure is to meet with Dr. Rumalla at his office for a one-on-one consultation at your earliest convenience.

What is the areolar breast augmentation incision?

The areola is the dark circle of skin that surrounds the nipple. The areolar breast augmentation incision technique involves making an incision along the lower half of the areola. This is a particularly discreet technique because the resulting scar tends to blend in with the natural border that separates the darker skin of the areola from the lighter skin of the breast.

Another benefit of this technique is that it allows Dr. Rumalla greater control over the placement of the breast implant due to the proximity of the incision to the breast itself. While the transaxillary (or underarm) incision technique involves no scarring of the actual breast tissue, its distance from the breast can pose a bit of a challenge in terms of the placement of the implant.

A third benefit of the technique is that it allows women who want to combine breast augmentation with breast lift to undergo both procedures through a single incision.

Are you a good candidate for breast augmentation using the areolar incision?

Many women are good candidates for breast augmentation using the areolar incision technique. You may be, too, if you:

  • Have areolae that are large in diameter and considerably darker than your breast skin.
  • Choose to have saline-filled or smaller silicone-gel-filled implants placed. It may not be possible to place larger silicone-gel-filled implants through areolar incisions.
  • Want to limit visible scarring.
  • Want to combine breast augmentation with breast lift to achieve larger and perkier breasts.
  • Have realistic expectations of the outcome, including possible risks associated with the technique (e.g., the possibility of scar thickening, which could make the scars more visible).
