Liposuction via same incision as that for pectoral implants?
It partly depends on where exactly on the chest liposuction is required. The armpit incision for pectoral implants does not give the best angle for access to all areas of the chest for liposuction. It's likely that you will need a separate incision for your liposuction.
Liposuction incisions can be incorporated in other planned incisions. Prior scars can also be utilized if they are located in the area to be liposuctioned.
Pectoral implants and liposuction
Pectoral implants are usually placed through an incision in the armpit. This is often not the ideal location to perform liposuction from.
Would a Liposuction use the same incision that was made to insert pectoral implants?
The lateral border of the pectoralis can be etched through the same incision.
