There are several standard incisions used by plastic surgeons in Scottsdale, Arizona for breast implants augmentation. The most common is known as an inframammary incision, which is an incision near the breast fold. Second, is an incision made under the areola, which is known as a periareolar incision. A third option is to place the incision within the armpit, known as a transaxillary approach. But this last technique can damage nerves and cause tissue damage, this is why Dr. Carlos Mata only focuses on the breast fold and areola incisions.
