2.5 Inch Long Inframammary Incision
Doctor Answers (2)
A 2.5 inch incision is slightly longer than what most would use, but it is not unreasonable. It should not cause long term problems in most situations.
Complications of long breast implant incision
There are few complications to such a long incision other than the cosmetic appearance. There may be a hgiher rate of Mondor's disease but this is not proven by the literature.
