Breast Implant Scars
Scarring is one of the main worries our customers with breast-related plastic surgery have. Many patients worry that the scars from treatments like breast augmentation and breast lifts would be very obvious and unattractive. This is a legitimate worry since, since surgery involves making incisions in the skin, scarring is an unfortunate feature of the treatment. That being said though, there are things that the surgeon can do to help minimize scarring and there are things you can do, post-op, to help reduce the visible breast implant scars.

A small amount of scarring is a side effect of breast augmentation surgery. Breast augmentation, which most frequently involves the implantation of breast implants, will increase or restore the breast’s volume. Based on your unique cosmetic goals, there are numerous implant types, including silicone and saline, as well as a variety of forms and profiles, that produce the appropriate effects.

Depending on the treatment you had, your individual breast implant scars will vary, but in every case, your surgeon will work to reduce the visibility of scars for the most attractive, natural result.
