Incisions

 

Incision placement usually boils down to personal preference. If you prefer a certain incision, it's very important to find a surgeon who is experienced with that incision, especially if it's the transaxillary or TUBA incisions.

However, if you have your heart set of one particular incision, it is worth it to continue your search for a surgeon who can give you what you want.
