The implant incision can be done in the armpit, the crease where the breast meets the chest, or around the areola (the dark-pigmented area surrounding the nipple). You’ll discuss these options with your doctor before surgery and decide which is best for your specific anatomy. The implants are then inserted either directly behind the breast tissue or behind the chest muscle. Then, your OSU Wexner Medical Center surgeon, who is highly trained to ensure minimal visual scarring, will close the incisions.
The entire procedure usually takes less than two hours to complete under a general anesthetic and can be performed on an outpatient basis.
