Feeling as though your breasts aren’t proportionate to the rest of your body can be a source of significant discomfort. Being able to see the bust you want when you look in the mirror is a great way to boost your confidence and self-esteem, which is why we offer breast augmentation to patients in the Phoenix and Scottsdale areas, at AdmireMD® Plastic Surgery + Skin Clinic.
More About the Breast Augmentation Procedure
Depending on the specifics of your surgery, your breast augmentation procedure will last between one and two hours, and will likely be performed with general anesthesia. The incisions will be made in inconspicuous places on the breast, to minimize scar visibility.
Depending on the specifics of your procedure, Anthony A. Admire will pick between these incision types:
- Transaxillary Incision: In the armpit
- Inframammary: In the crease on the underside of the breast
- Periareolar: Around the areola (the dark skin around the nipple)
The breast is then lifted, creating a pocket into which the implant is inserted. Saline implants can also be placed endoscopically, through an incision in the navel, in a minimally-invasive breast enhancement technique known as a transumbilical breast augmentation, or TUBA approach.
