Dr. Anthony’s Surgical Technique
Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. Before your surgery, Dr. Anthony will talk with you about things like Incision placement and implant location so you can go into your procedure knowing exactly how it will be performed.
During the breast augmentation procedure, the incision is made, and the implant is placed into position using one of two techniques: under the muscle, or behind the breast tissue but over the pectoral muscle. This depends on a variety of factors, including the overall type and size of implant, along with the Dr. Anthony’s professional expertise.
Following the incision, the chosen implant will be moved through the incision opening and deposited into a surgically created pocket, and then secured into its correct position. Once the implant is in position, the incision is carefully secured with skin adhesives or sutures.
Scarring is usually minimal, regardless of incision placement. Placement and location will be based upon your implant size, activity level, and body type.
