The 411 for transaxillary augmentation
Breast augmentation surgery using the old-fashioned inframammary technique involves making an incision under the breast, just below the breast, where the breast and rib cage meet. This type of surgery may sometimes be necessary, but one downside is that it leaves scars where the cut was made that can be seen if your swimsuit pulls up or someone sees you shirtless.
Some surgeons advocate the scar around the nipple or the periareolar scar to place the implants, but this incision has its drawbacks as well. Many women complain of loss of nipple sensation after this procedure and may have difficulty breastfeeding. Not to mention, if the scar gets wide or thick, it is in a very sensitive area and it can affect the beauty of the breast.
The technique of transaxillary augmentation is sometimes referred to as “Invisible Breast Surgery” or “Invisible Augmentation”. In this procedure, the incision is made through a tiny incision in the armpit and does not leave a scar on the chest.
“I find that this technique gives a much nicer breast without scars. In addition, my patients recover faster because there isn’t a large cut under the breast or around the nipple to heal. Nobody thinks armpits are very sexy, so it’s a great place to hide a scar, “says Dr. Ennis.
The secret lies in the special endoscopic tool and tiny cameras that help make the incisions as small as possible. Dr. L. Scott Ennis Discuss whether it is better to place the implant behind or in front of the chest muscles. Most people opt for behind the chest muscles.
You will be under general anesthesia for the actual procedure, but you can go home the same day.
Recovery from the procedure
Most women can be back to work in five to seven days. Your recovery should take about six weeks before you can fully return to your normal, daily training schedule. Following all of your doctor’s directions can reduce scars and help them heal faster.
Go for it
It’s exciting to think about a procedure that will give you great breasts without scarring. And since the cut scar is hidden in an area that is already appearing darker than the rest of the body, as well as an area that is already wrinkled, it is very easy to keep the cut a secret from the world.
Dr. However, Ennis adds that everyone heals differently.
“Your body’s genetic makeup determines how you get scars, but certain techniques like massaging the scar tissue and using silicone strips can help minimize their appearance,” he says.
