Breast Augmentation Incision Methods

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed because it can enhance a woman’s bust line to produce a more feminine physique,, boost self-confidence, and improve the fit of many popular styles of clothing. While this is a procedure that is frequently performed, many patients who choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery are not aware of the many options that are available to them. Not only are there the obvious choices of the size and type of implant that will be used in the procedure, but there are choices to be made regarding surgical technique as well. At a patient’s initial consultation, plastic surgeon Douglas J. Mackenzie will explain to his Santa Barbara patients the breast augmentation incision options that are available, and help them make the decision regarding which incision is best suited to their needs and anatomy. In the meantime, patients can read a brief explanation of each incision type:

Dr. Mackenzie will take into account a number of factors when helping to determine the best incision option for each patient. Some considerations when choosing a breast augmentation incision include the size of implant that will be used, the type of implant that will be used, and the location of the scar that will be left behind. All of these details will be discussed at a surgical consultation with Dr. Mackenzie.

Mackenzie at your earliest convenience. Dr. Mackenzie is happy to walk patients through the surgical procedure in order to ensure that they feel comfortable with all the choices they make regarding breast augmentation.
