Some patient’s may wish for more upper pole fullness in their breast, whereas others may seek a more tear-drop shape with their breast augmentation. Other’s may seek a breast lift (mastopexy) with augmentation in order to restore the breast volume higher on the chest wall after pregnancy and gravity have effected the breast causing breast sag or droop.
The various approaches of breast augmentation in the Inland Empire that are offered by Dr. Sorosky and Dr. Park. The incisions in the area of the breast are periareolar (around the nipple) or in the inframammary fold crease. If a patient does not wish to have scars on the breast then the axillary (or armpit) approach may be used. Finally, when a patient is undergoing a breast augmentation along with an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedure, the implants can be placed through the abdominoplasty incision to avoid any scars on the breast.
