There are several different incision techniques used to perform breast augmentation. While Dr. Shuster uses all three methods, his preferred technique is the transaxillary incision, which is placed through the armpit.
Dr. Shuster is able to achieve beautiful results using the transaxillary breast augmentation approach. He prefers this method because it avoids any scarring on the breast. Instead, your scar will be discreetly concealed underneath the armpit.
6 Benefits of Transaxillary Breast Augmentation
You’ll experience the following benefits from the transaxillary breast augmentation technique:
- No scarring on the breast
- Short, inconspicuous scar along the armpit crease will be unnoticeable by others
- Provides Dr. Shuster with direct access to the implant location
- Eliminates the need to cut through the muscle or the breast when accessing the implant location
- Less likely to impact nipple sensation
- Can be performed using either silicone or saline breast implants
Your Transaxillary Breast Augmentation Procedure
Dr. Shuster will make a small incision (1-2 inches long) in a natural crease along the armpit. After creating a space under the chest muscle, he’ll insert implant sizers to identify the appropriate implant size. Once the proper size is confirmed, the implant sizers will be removed and replaced by your permanent breast implants. Dissolvable sutures are used to close the incision.
Due to the location of the incision, scars will be hidden and there will be no sign that breast augmentation was performed. This is one of the reasons why Dr. Shuster believes the transaxillary technique delivers the best outcome for your procedure.
