Basic facts to know about breast augmentation surgery in South Korea:
There are different type of methods for placing implants to enlarge the breasts. It all depends on the incision location. Each surgeon will hear the specific needs of the patients. Then, she/he will suggest for an inferior breast crease incision, an axillary incision or an areolar incision.
Doctors always emphasize the importance of the incision’s location to minimize the breast augmentation surgery scar:
- In the case of an inferior breast crease the scar might be more noticeable. The positive side is that the procedure itself can be bloodless. It can be less prone for capsular contracture. (Noteworthy, inferior breast crease will also have better aesthetic results and it’s easier to perform a revision surgery).
- The axillary incision for breast augmentation leaves a less visible scar. Doctors have to use an endoscope and be careful not to damage chest muscles.

Following the incision’s location, the implant’s location is the next important decision to make. The location of the implant has four options: subglandular (not recommendable for thin women), subpectoralis, dual plane (recommended for droopy breasts) and subfascia plane (the latest, less painful procedure).
