Breast Augmentation

CONTENT CONTAINS NUDITY. NOT FOR MINORS.

Although Breast Augmentation surgery is a common procedure performed by many plastic surgeons, only a very select few offer the “Scarless Breast Augmentation”. 

Dr. Edwin Kwon specializes in this unique Breast Augmentation surgery in Newport Beach, CA.

This is also known as an Endoscopic Breast Augmentation or Transaxillary Breast Augmentation.

The implants can be placed through the under arms and the incision hidden in a fold to provide an augmentation without leaving any scars on the breasts.

The "Scarless" Breast Augmentation By Dr. Edwin Kwon

As mentioned earlier, The “Scarless” Breast Augmentation is a unique procedure that Dr. Edwin Kwon offers in Newport Beach, CA. Here are some highlights:

Example A: Immediately after surgery.
Example B: Healed armpit incisions at post-op.

Is there a Scarless Breast Augmentation?

In terms of being scarless from the front view? Yes.

Unlike a traditional Breast Augmentation through the IMF (inframammary fold), which leaves visible scarring underneath the breasts, an Endoscopic Breast Augmentation uses the Transaxillary approach which hides the incisions in the armpit’s natural folds. (See examples of healed armpit incisions here).

So, while no surgery is completely scarless, this surgery hides its incisions very well.

Why Is An Endoscopic Camera Used?

While some perform this procedure utilizing instruments to rip the muscles to create the pocket, Dr. Edwin Kwon utilizes an endoscope camera 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.
