Benefits Of A Transaxillary Breast Augmentation
There are many methods for performing breast augmentation surgery in Seattle. This includes placing breast implants through the inframammary fold, areola, or armpit. Performing a breast augmentation through the armpit is known as a transaxillary breast augmentation. The optimal placement method will vary for every patient, but the transaxillary method offers many benefits to breast augmentation patients.
The first benefit of a transaxillary breast augmentation is that there is no surgical scar on the breasts. Additionally, for patients prone to keloid scarring, keloids are rarer in the armpit and they are less likely to form. The incision is also hidden naturally in the armpit.
Secondly, transaxillary breast augmentation lowers the chances of many complications including capsular contracture. Since there are no incisions on or around the areolas or nipples, there is less of a chance that the nerves or milk ducts in the area will be harmed. It may also reduce the likelihood of rippling wrinkling.
Finally, for certain anatomies and patients, transaxillary breast augmentation may offer a shorter recovery time or more viable option. For example, for patients with natural asymmetry, this method may offer a better chance of correcting it. Also, for patients who have previously undergone a mastectomy, this method often offers the best results.
