Breast augmentation using breast implants is a very popular and successful procedure.

Technical advances in implant technology and surgical techniques have reduced the risk of complications such as capsular contracture (where the breast implant is surrounded by a capsule that contracts and produces symptoms).

Professor Scott Spear from Washington DC conducted research for 6 years on whether the choice of incisions influenced the capsular contracture. His recent research revealed that the risk of capsular contracture was least likely to occur using the inframammary incision (under the breast incision) with higher risks in both the peri-areolar (around nipple) and axillary (arm pit) incisions. Using the imframmary incision, breast augmentation using breast implants continues to be a very successful procedure with minimal risk.
