Where the incision will be made is something that will be decided by you and Dr. Ress during your consultation. The placement of the incision determines how visible scars from the surgery will be.

The placement of the implant is something that you and Dr. Ress will also decide upon in the consultation prior to your breast augmentation surgery.
