Hi mcbeth32, Definitely speak with him, of course only he knows why he did what he did. My first thought is the areola was incision was not large enough to fit the implant, so a secondary incision site was created to safely do the surgery. However, there could be a few reasons. Regardless the reason, try to stay calm and relaxed, it's important for a good recovery from surgery. I would not be worried about any damage to your nipples. The scars in this area tend to heal very well and be hardly noticeable. Best of luck to you, I am sure you will be fine!

Placing the implant through the nipple instead of just using that incision for a lift can carry a variety of increased risks. This would have been discussed and noted before your surgery though. I recommend that you discuss your details and concern with your Plastic Surgeon so that they can explain for you.

Breast Augmentation - Post Op Concern - 2 incisions?
Talk to your doctor
Implants and incision
Breast augmentation - why two incisions
- I am sorry this happened - when the possibility exists it is usually discussed in advance.
- If you have gel implants, it is possible your surgeon couldn't get them in through the small peri-areolar incision.
- Modern gel implants are thick and don't compress - at times a larger incision is need to to get them in place.
