Transaxillary Breast Augmentation Incision Approach
Breast augmentation surgery is quite popular and an extremely effective way for our patients to enhance their figures and improve their body contour. At our Sydney plastic surgery office, we will tailor the surgery to meet your unique needs and your unique goals. With that in mind, there are several different ways that we can perform breast augmentation surgery. Wed like to cover the transaxillary breast augmentation procedure right now as it has proven quite effective for many patients.
Breast augmentation surgery involves the placement of breast implants into the breast pocket in order to achieve a desired effect. In the transaxillary breast augmentation procedure, the breast implants are placed in such a way that visible scarring is limited and concealed.
How is this possible? Well, in the transaxillary breast augmentation procedure, the incisions are made in the armpit. Thats right–not around the breast crease or the areola, but under the arm.
There are plenty of benefits for this kind of Sydney breast augmentation surgery. The most important one that patients note is the concealment of the surgical scar. In addition, transaxillary breast augmentation poses no difficulties when it comes to the position of the breast implant relative to the chest muscle.
There are, however, some disadvantages to transaxillary breast augmentation. For one, you cannot get silicone breast implants through transaxillary breast augmentation. Since silicone breast implants are pre-filled, they cannot be maneuvered into position via a small incision in the armpit. The distance from the breast pocket can make the surgery more difficult to perform in some cases as well. In addition, if revision breast augmentation surgery is required, the incision in the arm pit cannot be reused. Another incision (likely around the areola or in the fold beneath the breast) will be required.
