A periariolar incision is made around the nipple in the darker skin of the areola and is one of the most popular breast augmentation incision options. With this incision, board-certified McLean breast surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside can help guard against visible scarring and help produce natural-looking results. The best way to learn if the periariolar incision is right for your needs is by calling (888) 730-4113 and scheduling your initial consultation with Dr. Gartside.
Other Breast Augmentation Incision Options
In addition to the periareolar incision, Dr. Gartside offers:
- Inframammary incisions – made underneath the breast, along the crease where breast tissue and the chest meet
- Transaxillary – made in the armpit to eliminate scarring on the breasts entirely
Each of these breast augmentation options offers unique benefits, but none are ideal for every patient. During your initial breast augmentation consultation at our McLean office Dr. Gartside will assess your natural breasts, review your other choices including breast implant type, size, and location, and help you choose which incision option will best meet your specific needs.
