Secret Scar Breast Augmentation

If you are interested in getting a breast augmentation but have been concerned about scarring, you should consider having a “secret scar” breast augmentation. At NuVista Plastic Surgery in Draper, Dr. Dayne Petersen is an expert at “secret scar” breast augmentation.

Most breast implants are inserted through an incision made in the fold where the breast meets the chest, which is called an inframammary incision. Although this is the most common location to insert breast implants, it’s not the only place. Breast implants can also be inserted using a transaxillary incision, which is an incision in the natural fold of the armpit. A small incision is made and a channel to the breast is created where the empty, saline shell can be inserted into the correct location on the chest. After the implants have been placed, they will be filled to the desired size with saline.

The “secret scar” cosmetic breast implantation method leaves the breasts looking untouched, because the scar becomes a small divot in the armpit. The method of breast augmentation is also less likely to damage the mammary glands than other type of incisions.
