Dr. Haworth performed a breast augmentation, using a submuscular ("under the muscle") approach via a periareolar incision ("around the nipple"). In order to get a natural hang of the breast when placing a breast implant under the pectoralis major muscle, he needed to release the lower portion of the muscle so that it would essentially act as an apron, imparting a teardrop shape.
