What is Transaxillary breast augmentation?

According to our board-certified and professional cosmetic surgeon in Miami, transaxillary breast augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure that requires the surgeon to make a small incision of 1.5 inches in length. The surgeon makes the incision in the crease of the armpit.

The purpose is to avoid disrupting the external breast tissue. Because transaxillary breast augmentation is a minimally invasive approach, postoperative scarring is minimal and barely noticeable.

Research studies show that transaxillary breast augmentation is a complex procedure, meaning a qualified, board-certified with years of experience and extensive skills can carry out the procedure.

What Is Transaxillary Breast Augmentation

Benefits of transaxillary breast augmentation

There are numerous benefits of transaxillary breast augmentation. These include no surgical scars on your breasts, reduced keloid scarring in the armpit, and hidden incisions in the armpit with low or no visibility.

Similarly, transaxillary breast augmentation reduces the risk of complications, such as infections, inflammation, and capsular contracture. The procedure does not harm milk ducts and nerves due to no incisions around nipples or areolas.

In addition, transaxillary breast augmentation reduces the risk of rippling wrinkling. It also has a shorter recovery period with faster healing, making transaxillary breast augmentation a viable option for women.

Recovery after transaxillary breast augmentation

Follow your doctor’s instructions when you arrive home after the surgery. It is crucial to avoid strenuous activities and rest according to your health provider’s guidelines. More rest means quick recovery. However, more rest does not mean lying in bed throughout the day.

It is crucial to take shorter walks within your room or from one room to another to increase blood circulation. That way, you can speed up the healing process, minimize the risk of scars, and prevent fat necrosis. The average recovery period for transaxillary breast augmentation is four to six weeks.

Tenderness, numbness, and soreness are normal. You can manage these symptoms with prescription pain-relieving medications and anti-inflammatory drugs. Keep in mind that postoperative discomfort and pain elevate for 2-3 days after the surgery.

Moreover, when you arrive home, remove the bandages and wear a compression garment. Continue wearing the compression garment until you meet your health provider. However, you can remove it for a short time when taking a shower.

Transaxillary breast augmentation pros and cons

The primary benefit of transaxillary breast augmentation is that the incision made by the surgeon is barely visible because the armpit hides the view. In addition, the recovery period for transaxillary breast augmentation is faster than traditional breast surgery in Miami.

You can wear any kind of undergarments, bathing suits, and tops without worrying about visible scarring because there are no incisions on the breasts. Our board-certified surgeon in Miami makes the incision as tiny as possible to ensure the scar fades with time.

On the other hand, transaxillary breast augmentation has a few downsides. First, the procedure requires the surgeon to use a saline-based breast implant. If you want to use silicone implants, the surgeon will make a different incision.

Besides, cosmetic surgeons have less control over the breast implant’s position when performing transaxillary breast augmentation. So, many surgeons find it challenging to place the implant under the patient’s pectoral muscle.

The good news is that you can rely on our board-certified surgeon for transaxillary breast augmentation. Our surgeon has years of experience and extensive knowledge of this procedure to ensure they place the implant under the pectoral muscle without any issues.
