Breast Augmentation without Visible Scars

Breast augmentation surgery is an excellent option to enhance the shape and size of the breasts. However, many women are looking to improve the look of their breasts and are primarily apprehensive about visible scarring following the procedure.

With the periareolar and inframammary approaches to breast augmentation surgery, women are left with a scar around the nipple or in the breast fold. Even if these scars are small and well healed, it is an obvious sign of a breast augmentation surgery.

Enhancing the Breast Shape & Volume with Implants

Like other incision approaches, breast augmentation with the transaxillary approach, improves the breast shape by increasing breast volume with implants. The difference lies in the location of the incision and route in which the breast implants are inserted. The incisions are well hidden in the underarms, within a natural skin crease.

Therefore, the scars are undetectable with the arms down and the result is beautiful and proportional breast augmentation with no obvious signs the surgery was done. With other breast augmentation procedures, scars are visible when topless, either around the areola or beneath the breast.

Additionally, the incisions in the underarm are not under any unnecessary stress or tension, so are able to heal more rapidly. Rates of infection are lowest at this incision site.

Place the implant behind the muscle for a natural look

With the transaxillary breast augmentation, Dr. Ennis is able to place the implant behind the chest muscle for a full, soft and natural result. With this technique, there is no need to cut the chest muscle or the breast tissue, allowing for easier recovery and more aesthetic results over alternative methods of augmentation.

While there are many misconceptions regarding implant incision placement, they are mostly due to lack of surgical experience in the endoscopic technique.

Revisions are Possible with Transaxillary Breast Aug

Enhancing the Breast Shape & Volume with Implants

“Many surgeons tell patients this approach is less precise or that revisions cannot be done through the underarm when simply they do not offer this technique. It is a very technical and performed with tiny cameras inside the body while visualized on a TV screen. The only two things that cannot be done through the under arm incision is a capsular contracture or if the implant bottoms out, but an implant exchange can easily be done through the under arm,” ~states Dr. Ennis.

Final thoughts on Breast Augmentation Incisions
