Transaxilliary augmentation is an excellent method for primary augmentation and is my preferred technique. It does not leave a visible scar as the only short cut is placed and hidden behind the axillary fold. It is a perfect, quick procedure – especially if the skin is very thin or the breasts are underdeveloped with an absent inframammary fold. This technique constitutes over 90% of the primary breast augmentations that I perform. It is also perfect for individuals undergoing gender reassignment due to its regard for anatomy. Most of my patients love the natural shape, relatively low levels of pain and completely inconspicuous scaring. Since anatomy is mostly respected with a transaxillary approach, even temporary loss of sensitivity in the nipples is much rarer than after other methods.
Your choice of implant is crucial for the optimum effect and I guide you with my expertise, ensuring that you choose the implant most suitable device for you.
Every implant has three dimensions: width, height, and projection and it is necessary to precisely match these dimensions to your body phenotype. Therefore, it is a mistake to solely think about volume here, as all three of the dimensions as well as the type of the implant and its fill are what create volume. A good support of undamaged tissues in the transaxillary breast augmentations allows for using almost every type of surface of the breast implants, including smooth ones.
Also the type of implant’s fill does not matter in the transaxillary approach although some of them may seem hard, they are also very elastic, therefore can be inserted through the small transaxillary incision. Please note here that officially I am the world’s first surgeon who implanted the ultralight devices (B-lite) through the axilla.
Implant positioning is significant. Subglandular positioning is possible, but rarely applied through the axilla. The subfascial position is limited to smaller implants, however, it provides good support. The submuscular position is the most common for transaxillary access. In the latter method the implant is anatomically more cohesive by being secured behind the muscle and is less palpable.
As the patient’s health is of utmost importance, an immediate post op is crucial after breast augmentation. After the surgery an 8-week period of compression with a sport’s bra and a Stuttgarter’s belt is required. It may take up to 7-8 months for breasts to heal and obtain their final shape and position.
I am looking forward to seeing you in my office to answer your questions and provide even more details about the procedure. With precise measurements and productive collaboration we will choose the right implant for you.
