BREAST AUGMENTATION AND LIFTS EXPLAINED TRANSAXILLARY VS. INFRAMAMMARY INCISION If you’ve started to do your research on breast augmentation and implants, you will already be familiar with some of the terminology involved in this procedure. One of the most common questions from our patients is whether Dr. Quinn uses transaxillary (armpit) incisions or inframmary (breast fold) incisions. TRANSAXILLARY (ARMPIT) INCISION Transaxillary incisions are made in the armpit, and are about 1-2 inches long. Because of their position, these incisions are discreet. With a transaxillary incision, Dr. Quinn uses small instruments in order to make a pocket under the muscle tissue in the breast. Then, the implant is inserted, and if a saline implant is being used, it will be filled to the desired size. INFRAMAMMARY (BREAST FOLD) INCISION Inframammary incisions are placed just in the fold on the underside of the breast. Both of these incisions allow breast-feeding mothers to continue nursing. Although both types of incisions are safe, Dr. Quinn performs transaxillary incisions in order to avoid scarring on or near the breasts. 12 | WWW.QUINNPLASTICSURGERY.COM

BREAST AUGMENTATION AND LIFTS EXPLAINED IMPLANT PLACEMENT Another frequently asked question is whether Dr. Quinn places implants above or below the muscle. Dr. Quinn always performs sub-muscular (under the muscle) implant placement for several reasons. Below-muscle placement means that your implants will be less palpable. You will be less likely to feel them, and the final look will be more natural. The risk of capsular contracture, a possible complication, is reduced. An additional benefit of below-muscle placement is easier breast imaging with mammography, an important health screening for women as they get older. Placement of implants above the muscle, called sub-glandular, may result in implants that are less natural looking and easily felt through the skin. There is also increased risk of capsular contracture and difficulties with mammography. For these reasons, Dr. Quinn does not feel that placement of implants above the muscle is a viable option. 13 | WWW.QUINNPLASTICSURGERY.COM
