Reasons for getting it done
Many women today are considering Breast Augmentation in Naples to increase their self esteem and boost their self image.  Elizabeth Fox, MD is board certified in plastic surgery; she gives her patients beautiful, natural looking results. Each surgical procedure is customized to your specific breast type and shape.  All of her patients receive caring, individualized attention.

The most important results in Breast Augmentation in Naples are to achieve the perfect size, and excellent cleavage.  Dr. Elizabeth Fox makes sure that she does not dissect the lateral, outer portion of the breast, therefore the breast implant is placed more towards the center, giving better cleavage.

Ideal candidates for Breast Enhansement in Naples include patients who:

  • Have small breasts

  • Have a loss in breast volume after childbirth

  • Have a difference in size of their breasts (asymmetry)

  • Want to look better and fit better in clothing

  • Desire fuller breasts with enhanced cleavage

  • To lift breasts


Elizabeth Fox, MD can increase the volume and fullness of your breasts by placing a saline or silicone breast implant either above or below the pectoral muscle.  At her AAAA certified surgical facility in Naples, Dr. Elizabeth Fox mostly places Breast Implants in Naples beneath the muscle for the following reasons:

Below the Pectoral Muscle

  • Looks more like natural breast tissue

  • Better visualization on mammography

  • Slows breast drooping in the future

  • Helps impede breasts from sagging in the future

  • Less wrinkling and rippling

Above the Muscle

  • An implant may be placed above the muscle if you are trying to avoid the incisions of a breast lift in the immediate future

  • Increases chance of rippling and wrinkling

  • More palpable (can be felt easier than if under the muscle)

  • May require a breast lift in the future


Incision Sites
There are four basic incision sites used for Breast Augmentation in Naples.  Dr. Elizabeth Fox will discuss your options with you and help you decide which is best for you.

Transumbilical or Endoscopic

  • An incision is made in the belly button and the surgeon tunnels through the abdominal tissue to reach the proper placement

  • No warranty is honored on implants when the transumbilical approach is used

  • Very unlikely that implant will be placed under the muscle

Axillary Approach

  • An incision is made in the axillary (underarm) area and the surgeon makes the pocket from the side

  • Less likely to achieve adequate cleavage, implant is placed in a more lateral (out to the sides) position

  • More than six weeks of discomfort after surgery, longer healing time

  • Tearing of muscle, too much destruction of tissue

  • You may have a visible scar when you wear a sleeveless shirt


  • An incision is made on the side of the areola (the colored part of the nipple)

  • May be used for saline implants or small silicone implants

  • Heals beautifully and scar may be barely visible

  • Scar blends well with natural change in skin color surrounding the nipple

  • Allows for placement of the implants under the muscle or under the glandular tissue

  • Perfect incision site for saline implants (see before and after pictures)


  • An incision is made under the crease of the breasts, in the natural fold under the breast

  • Allows for placement of the implants under the muscle or under the glandular tissue

  • Dr. Fox can create beautiful cleavage when using this approach

  • Can place silicone implant with ease

  • Easy to hide the scar (see before and after pictures)
