Breast Enlargement/Breast Implants-Endoscopic Axillary

Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center of El Paso – Axillary Endoscopic Breast Augmentation Surgery

At Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center of El Paso, breast augmentation surgery is a popular choice of patients who want to improve the shape and contour of their breasts, without taking on visible scars as a result of the procedure. Axillary endoscopic breast augmentation surgery is an increasingly popular method of breast enhancement or reconstruction, as a very small incision is made in the armpit and is practically hidden.

For this type of procedure, Dr. Reynolds or Dr. Jabor will make a small incision (typically 1.5 to 2 inches, depending on the type of implant), under the armpit – also known as the transaxillary crease. Because the incision is made in a crease, the resulting scar is very hard to detect once a patient has finished healing. Along with the incision in the armpit, the defining element of axillary endoscopic breast augmentation surgery is that a small endoscope is used to provide the highest visibility while your doctor places the implant with precision. Depending on the type of procedure you desire, the implant will be placed through the incision in front of, behind, or partially behind the chest wall muscle. Depending on the type of implant, a full implant may be inserted, or an empty implant will be filled with saline to your desired size.

After the implant is placed, the incision is closed and the recovery process begins. Axillary endoscopic breast augmentation surgery requires the same amount of healing time as any other type of breast surgery. This is because it is not the type of incision that determines the rate of healing, but rather the fact that the breast tissue around the implant needs time to heal. After several weeks, you will meet with your doctor to determine if you can resume normal activities and exercise. As you heal, you will find that the small scar from the axillary endoscopic breast augmentation naturally heals into the crease of your arm and is practically undetectable.
