why is it that there are no marks left after breast augmentation surgery done?

Not noticable: The incisions are there but in a crease that renders them not noticeable. You can't perform an incision and not leave a scar, but you can put them in a pace where you might not notice them.

Depends: Whether or not there is a scar visible on the breast after breast augmentation surgery will depend on where the incision is placed during the procedure. Sometimes scars are located in the axillary area, infra mammary fold area, umbilical area, or under the areola.

Incision placement: While fat transfer can be performed using needles, most implants require an incision which can be placed in the breast crease (80% of cases) , around the areola, in the armpit, in the umbilicus or via an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) approach. You are probably not seeing the incision in the photographs.
