1. Periareola Incision
The implant is inserted at the top or bottom of the areola. The good thing is that the scar is small and hardly visible. One drawback is that it may affect some milk flow if you want to breastfeed in the future.
2. Inframammary Incision
This incision is made in the crease directly under the breast. Any scar will be hidden. Although the incision length will be longer, there will be no effect on your breastfeeding ability.
3. Transaxillary Incision
The cut is made near the armpits which means no scarring on your breast area. The scar is visible only if you lift your arms up. For this, a highly experienced surgeon is needed as done wrongly, it can affect your lymphatic drainage.
4. Transumbilical Incision
The incision is made around the belly button or navel. In experienced hands, this procedure will leave you with no visible scars as it will be hidden in the natural crease of your navel. If a surgeon has never done this before, you may end up with a visible scar that runs up your abdomen.
