Breast Augmentation Before and After

Breast Augmentation and the Periareolar approach. The dimensions of the areola.

Breast augmentation procedures are common. Patients often choose to undergo breast augmentation via the periareolar approach. Patients often ask, “if I have implants placed, will this cause my areola to become wide?” Depending on the size of the implant placed, there are different forces exerted on the skin that cause the skin to stretch. The diameter of the areola may increase but it is usually not significant or it is in proportion with the increase in the breast size.
