Transaxillary (Armpit Incision) Endoscopic Breast Augmentation
Transaxillary Endoscopic Breast Augmentation in an approach to breast enlargement that allows for your breast implants to be placed with no incisions on your breasts. The technique utilizes a small incision in the top of the armpit that is first used to place an endoscope, or tiny camera, that allows for precise creation of a tissue pocket with optimal control and visualization all steps of the procedure. After creation of the tissue pocket internally, saline or silicone gel implants can be placed, depending upon your preference. Recovery from the procedure is identical to any other approach for breast augmentation, except that the early postoperative soreness associated with the incision location will be in the armpit.
Dr. Walden is one of the few surgeons in the Central Texas area to offer this approach and has followed the advancing technical refinements of transaxillary endoscopic breast augmentation since its inception. This experience has helped to make breast implant placement using this approach more routine and predictable, with the advantage of avoiding incisions and scars on your breasts. Dr. Walden will discuss the option of transaxillary endoscopic breast augmentation with you, if you are an appropriate candidate, as you consider your options for breast augmentation. If you have a desire for this technical approach please mention it at your initial consultation as well.
