Dr. Cha has put together the advantages and disadvantages of the differences in breast augmentation incision points:

Axillary Endoscopic (armpit)


1.No scar on the breast leading to natural looking results

2.If done correctly, the scar is not very visible under the armpit as there are creases in that part of the body

3.This is often the least visible scarring of any breast augmentation implant area

4.The endoscopic technique gives the doctor full control over pocket creation, placement etc.


1.If the scarring heals badly, there will be a visible scar when lifting up your arms

2.The scarring may be difficult to hide if wearing tank tops

3.Removal of scar tissue from around the implant (capsulectomy) is more difficult with this method

4.There is a very small risk of numbness around the scar area

Breast Fold (Under the breast)



1.The doctor has the beast visibility and control for the implant procedure using this method

2.If the patient has deep folds, the scar is easily hidden

3.If another surgery is needed later, this approach provides the easiest access to the implant

4.Mildly sagging or tuberous breasts are beast treated with this approach

5.Allows for larger implants to be placed


1.A visible scar on the bottom of the breast

2.Small frames with tight breasts show the scar more easily

3.The scar may be visible when laying flat

Areolar (around the nipple)


1.Easy access for pocket creation for the doctor
