In this episode of our breast enlargement FAQ series we discuss the topic of scarring. Scarring is a question that comes up pretty much all the time during consultations for most procedures. The scarring is traditionally the most negative part of a surgery for women, especially in breast enlargement. The visual appearance is improved with a breast enlargement, but can be slightly counteracted by the appearance of scars, especially if the scars are large and uneven.
There are different incision sites with a breast enlargement procedure available to you. The two most common we use are the inframammary incision, which is in the fold of your breast, so it will not be visible to you. This scar is usually around 4-5cm long when performed at Aurora Clinics, but can be slightly larger depending on the implant size. Most other places use scars longer than this, 6cm and above. The other incision we offer mainly is a peri-areola incision, which is where the edge of your areola is removed, to reduce it during the surgery, and then an incision is made under the top layer of skin, basically around the bottom half of your areola. This is called  the OCEAN™ technique which was pioneered by Mr Richards at Aurora Clinics, so it is not available everywhere at the moment. The scar left from this technique will literally be just the perimeter of your areola, which fades away in time. It is also easier to cover up as once it has healed you could have medical grade tattooing on it to blend the scar in with the shade of you areola, so it is even harder to notice.
