Breast Augmentation Scarring
Thank you very much for your
question and congratulations on your recent breast surgery. However, without a
photograph or additional information, it is difficult to provide any meaningful
advice. Prior to your procedure, your surgeon should have explained the
expected scarring. Unfortunately, unexpected scarring can occur. My suggestion
is that you contact your operating surgeon with your concerns, as he/she knows
the most about the specific technique performed, your medical history, and your
Why after breast surgery do I have a huge scar underneath my breast and on my nipples?
This is very difficult to answer without any photos or an exam. Was a lift needed at the same time?

Scar Underneath Breast and On Nipples After Surgery
Hello, and thank you for your question. I definitely understand your concern but without any photos or further details about the time since your procedure or other information, I can tell you the one thing I would recommend the most:
You may not be fully satisfied with the
appearance of your implants; implant size issues, prominent scarring,
asymmetric or undesired appearance or placement of #implants or hardening may interfere with
ALWAYS CONTACT YOUR PLASTIC
SURGEON IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT INFECTION, BLEEDING, SWELLING, FEVER,
EXCESSIVE BRUISING, OR ANY NEW AND SUDDEN CHANGES IN THE FEELING OR LOOK OF
Scar locations are usually discussed in pre-surgical visits.
I would strongly suggest that you discuss your incisions with your surgeon when you return for a follow-up visit. He (she) could better explain what was needed and accomplished with your surgery.
Hope your recovery is uneventful and you have an excellent outcome.
impossible to know fully what you are referring to. If you had a lift, then those are typical incisions. If you simply had an augmentation, then maybe your surgeon made a breast crease(IMF) incision while at the same time performing an areola reduction. Not sure without knowing what you had done or what your goals of surgery were.
Not exactly sure. It sounds like you had a lift along with your augmentation, or at least a lower IMF incision followed by an areolar reduction. I hope this was discussed with you beforehand, but sometimes the incisions there are necessary.
