The incision sites for Breast Augmentation surgery may be placed in different locations.  The axillary approach is made with the incision in the armpit.  This gives the surgeon easier access to the chest muscle.  The periareolar approach is made with the incision around the nipple.  The inframammary approach which is the most common incision site made under your breast at the crease where the breast meets the body. The fourth incision site is the periumbilical approach with the incision made at the belly button.  After the incision is made a pocket is formed for the implant.  This pocket is placed beneath your breast tissue, either on top of the chest muscle (subglandular placement) or underneath part or all of the chest muscle (submuscular placement).
