Photograph of inframmary scar

Pictured above are a  typical  an inframmmary scar example.  the scars are about 2.5-3cm for saline implants.  For silicone, they are 3-5 cm depending on the size of the implant.  this is because salines come deflated (empty) and are rolled like a cigar and then inserted and unrolled.  Silicones are filled by the manufacturer, so they have to be squeezed in thru a slightly bigger incision.  Dr. Khalifeh specializes in keeping the scar as small as possible.  Laser therapy can also help fade the scar.

When to choose inframmary fold scar:

– patient preference: this is  a very popular area to have the implants inserted thru.  this is because it is not very visible at all.  it also gives the doctor direct access to help him reshape the breast into a pleasing contour (as compared to the axillary scar, where the doctor is far from the breast, making it harder to reshape if needed.
