If a woman wants to have larger breasts, she may consider breast augmentation, or breast implants. It has a great success rate over the years. Dr. Hueneke has performed thousands of surgical procedures in Tennessee, and breast augmentation is among the most popular and commonly requested.


The purpose of breast augmentation is to lift and enlarge the size of the breast using silicone- or saline-filled implants. They also work to restore the breasts to their original size and shape after extreme weight loss or pregnancy.


The breast implant procedure is conducted in such a way to prevent visible scarring. A particular incision is made in an inconspicuous area of the breast and Dr. Hueneke will discuss the different options with you. They include:

  • Inframammary incision - Under the breast
  • Transaxillary incision - Under the arm
  • Periareolar incision - On the nipple


The type of incision that is used will often depend on your anatomy and/or preference, the type of implant that will be used, and the size or degree of augmentation. Once the incision is made, the implant is placed into a pocket and the incision is closed using surgical tape, skin adhesive and a skin layering technique.
