To permit the smallest possible incision, breast implants are typically inserted empty and then filled with saline. You may discuss with Dr. Niessen the pros and cons for the specific incision site recommended for you.
There are two common incision sites: around the nipple (periareolar) and within the breast fold (inframammary).
When having periareolar breast augmentation, the incision is most concealed, but it is associated with a higher inability to successfully breast-feed, as compared to an inframammary incision.
When having breast augmentation with an inframammary incision, it is less concealed, but will cause less difficulty when breast-feeding.
Let Dr. Niessen help you decide which incision is best for you.
