Periareolar Incision in Coral Springs, Florida (FL)

Your breast augmentation can be performed through periareolar incisions, which are made around the circumference of your areolas—the darker toned circular areas around your nipples. Scarring from these incisions can be well hidden, but there are increased risks as well.

Advantages of periareolar incision

There are certain advantages to periareolar incisions.
  • Scarring is usually well camouflaged by the darker skin tone of your areolas.
  • Your surgeon has good access to your breast tissue, making surgery easier.
  • The incisions can be reopened in future surgeries, so you won’t have new scars.


There are risks of tissue damage and other complications to consider as well.
  • In rare cases your scars may be more noticeable if the incisions don’t heal well.
  • The incisions can damage your milk ducts and impact your ability to breastfeed.
  • You may experience nerve damage in your nipples, making them less sensitive or numb.
  • The risk of infection is higher because your nipples harbor bacteria that can be transferred onto your implants. Your surgeon can use a protective sleeve around your nipple to reduce this risk.
