Endoscopic Vs. Traditional
While some of my Breast Augmentation patients just want a noticeably fuller shape to fit better into their clothes, many desire having the most natural results possible. A Traditional Breast Augmentation can do this exceptionally well, however, it still leaves visible scars underneath the breasts. That’s where the Endoscopic Breast Augmentation (or Transaxillary breast augmentation) comes in as an option.
The Virtually “Scarless” Breast Augmentation
So what’s this supposed “Scarless” Breast Augmentation, you ask? Essentially, it is a procedure that creates small incisions hidden within the armpits rather than underneath the breasts. Let’s go more into depth.
Firstly, small incisions are created within the natural creases of the patient’s armpits. This makes the scar nearly undetectable.
Secondly, an endoscope camera is utilized to directly visualize the pocket and carefully divide the muscle using the cautery to create a precise pocket, decrease bleeding, pain, and risk of capsular contracture. Afterwards, sizers are inserted into those pockets to determine what breast implant size would fit best and the final implants are set in place.
