Transaxillary Breast Augmentation Miami

Many women undergo transaxillary breast augmentation to reduce the risk of scar tissue following the procedure. It is because transaxillary is a minimally invasive procedure that requires the surgeon to make small incisions, leading to shorter hospital stays and faster recovery time. 

Transaxillary Breast Augmentation Miami can help you achieve your desired cosmetic goals without causing complications. However, it is crucial to learn about what to expect during the surgery and recovery and speed up the healing or recovery process. 

During the surgery, the surgeon will make a small incision of about 1.5 inches in length in the crease of your armpit. Unlike traditional augmentation procedures, this one does not modify the external breast tissue. 

Thanks to the minimally invasive approach, the postoperative scarring is unnoticeable. However, this is a complex procedure and requires the expertise of a surgeon with extensive knowledge and years of experience. Read on!

What Is Transaxillary Breast Augmentation?

Transaxillary breast augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure that involves making an incision in the crease of your armpit. The external tissues are not modified, which means there will be less scarring compared to traditional surgeries!

Recovery After Transaxillary Breast Augmentation

Most women opt for transaxillary breast augmentation because they don’t want to alter the external structure of their breasts’ tissues. At the same time, women who are more sensitive to pain, inflammation, or allergies choose this procedure to manage discomfort during the rehabilitation period. 

Depending on your health status and postoperative care, you can resume your day-to-day activities within three days. Because the surgery does not involve cutting the breast muscle, it does not injure or cause wounds. Therefore, there is no effect for women who want to get pregnant or breastfeed their babies. 

Moreover, the surgeon places implants under the chest muscle, particularly the sub-pectoral or sub-muscular muscles, to reduce the risk of the implant’s downward movement. Similarly, this procedure is beneficial for reducing the risk of capsular contracture. 

Implants have decreased the likelihood of visible wrinkling or rippling. It allows health professionals to read the patient’s mammograms efficiently and quickly without any problems because the implant does not stay behind the breast tissue directly. 

Breast Augmentation Transaxillary Incision

During breast augmentation surgery, your surgeon makes a small incision about one-and-a-half inch in your armpit’s crease. Compared to conventional methods or procedures that involve making a large incision in the external breast tissue, transaxillary does not modify your breast tissue, making it a more reliable and safe operation for women. 

In addition, the incision method used in this surgery is hidden because there is no direct incision made on the breasts. Bear in mind that you must be in good health and fit enough to undergo this procedure. If you are suffering from any medical condition, make sure you consult your surgeon and discuss everything to know whether you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. 

Transaxillary Breast Augmentation Scars

Because the surgeon makes the incision in the depth of your armpit, you won’t notice any visible scars near the breast. Scars in your armpits’ creases usually fade away quickly. 

At the same time, scars are challenging to detect or notice for patients and other people. Therefore, this is one of the most reliable and efficient procedures in the cosmetic industry, reducing the risk of complications during the rehabilitation period.
