If you would like to make your breasts fuller and shapelier, breast augmentation with implants is an effective solution. But since implants are inserted through incisions, patients are always curious to find out – Will a Breast Augmentation Leave Scars?
Will a Breast Augmentation Leave Scars?
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that requires incisions in the skin, so scars are inevitable. Scarring is actually a part of the natural healing process when the body seeks to repair the skin after an injury is made. However, when performing breast augmentation, the aim should be to make scars as inconspicuous as possible, and that’s why surgeon selection is so important.
A well-trained, highly skilled board certified plastic surgeon that has a lot of experience performing breast augmentation knows how to make the incision in the right location, so as to minimize scars. Surgery performed by a less skilled surgeon may lead to more scarring.
The placement of the incision for breast augmentation surgery also impacts the visibility of the scars. The surgical technique used will depend on the anatomy of the patient, their aesthetic goals, and the size and type of the implants being used.
The inframammary incision is a popular option in which the incision is made in the inframammary crease, which is the area where the breast meets the chest.
The right surgeon using the right technique can ensure that the scars after breast augmentation are thin and well-concealed. Scars should fade gradually over time and become almost invisible.
