Submammary (Inframammary Crease) Incision

Perhaps the most widely used technique for breast augmentation, the submammary (or inframammary crease) incision allows Dr. Torminn to work near to the breast while placing the implants. The incisions are made just above the inframammary crease, the point at which the breast connects to the chest (see figure). The close proximity of the incision to the implant position allows Dr. Torminn to have more control during the procedure. Typically, the resulting scars can only be seen when the patient is lying down.
