Breast Augmentation Bellevue: What Is Transaxillary Breast Augmentation?

By March 15, 2021 No Comments
As one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, plastic surgeons continue to innovate upon breast augmentation. With new types of breast implants and less invasive surgical techniques, patients can garner better results today than in the past. One of the most exciting revolutions in breast augmentation surgery is the development and pioneering of transaxillary breast augmentation. What is transaxillary breast augmentation?   Transaxillary breast augmentation refers to a surgical technique where a cosmetic surgeon places breast implants through an incision in the armpit. This keeps scarring away from the breasts, which is an exceedingly popular benefit of the technique. At first, cosmetic surgeons placed only saline breast implants with this method. However, further innovation has made it possible to place silicone breast implants during transaxillary breast augmentation for good candidates.   Additionally, the position of the armpit allows surgeons to place breast implants under the muscle without excising the muscle. This less invasive and minimal technique can lead to a less painful and easier recovery. While the muscle will still need to stretch, transaxillary breast augmentation can reduce the overall trauma to the chest muscle.   To learn more about transaxillary breast augmentation and schedule a consultation, call us at 206-787-0784.
