What technique do you use, and why and how is it performed?
Breast augmentation with implants is performed either under general anaesthesia, or local anaesthetic with sedation. Incisions to place the implants are short and usually made in the inframammary fold or at the junction of the areola and breast, where they can be hidden very well. They can also be inserted by an axillary, or armpit approach, though the indications for this are very specific.
Once an appropriate pocket is created, the implant will be placed in a sterile fashion, minimizing the risk of infection. The plane in which the pocket is created can be over or under the chest muscle, depending on the amount of pre-existing breast tissue you have. Once the implant is inserted, the incision will be closed meticulously to reduce scarring.
