Implant placement during surgery

There are different ways of placing a prosthesis during breast augmentation. The procedure is discussed in advance between the surgeon and the patient.

  • Peri-areolar scar : the incision is made on or around the areola. It’s small, but more visible.
  • Axillary scar : the incision is made in the armpit. It is wider, but does not touch the breast.
  • Inframammary scar : the incision is made under the breast. It is widely used, as it is practical and inconspicuous.

Once the incision has been made, the implant is placed either behind or in front of the pectoralis muscle. The most common and least risky technique is implantation above the pectoral muscle. A third technique, the dual plane, involves placing the implant partially under the pectoral muscle. The result is quite natural and comfortable for the patient.

Placement of the silicone prosthesis behind the muscle is generally reserved for women with little breast tissue.
