Does Breast Augmentation Leave a Scar?

You’ve decided that a breast augmentation is right for you. Whether you’re dissatisfied with the size and shape you were naturally given or have experienced age or pregnancy-related volume loss, an augmentation can help you achieve the look you want. But, that leaves many women wondering if, and when, their post-surgical scars will go away.

The transformation from breast surgeries have lasting results both physically and emotionally. You may experience a more proportionate body contour, clothing may fit better, and you may enjoy a boost in self-confidence.

What are Your Options?

At Sthetix, we offer both augmentations with implants and breast augmentations by fat-transfer. Our surgical team has a combined 50-years worth of experience in performing beast surgeries and are dedicated to ensuring an optimal outcome from start to finish whatever you decide.

We use state of the art 3D scanning to help you decide the right size of implant.

When implants are used, your highly-skilled surgeon implements the latest surgical techniques to ensure incisions are well-hidden. Typically, incisions are made in the crease below your breasts and cannot be seen when sitting or standing. Incisions can also be placed at the base of the nipple depending on your individual needs.

Patients who would like a subtle, natural change and are worried about potential scars may want to consider fat-transfer. Augmentations done via autologous fat-transfer barely leave visible scars on the breasts.

When Will Scars Go Away?

Although scars will never fully dissipate, there are things you can do to ensure that they’re minimised. When done correctly, by a skilled surgeon, breast augmentation scars can significantly fade in about a year’s time. The majority of women find their scars to be well-worth the benefits associated with their new feminine physique.

Taking care to not overstrain yourself throughout the healing process can also improve the appearance of scars down the line. Your specialised surgeon will provide you with individualised post-operative instructions including a scar management plan. During a follow-up visit, you will be guided on how to manage the scar which can help reduce its appearance.
