Benefits of a Transaxillary Breast Augmentation

Transaxillary Breast Augmentation Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure that provides women an option to enhance or correct the appearance of their breasts. However, not all breast augmentation is the same. One of the key differences is where the incision is made for the surgery. The site of incision can alter how the procedure is performed, recovery time, and overall ease of operation. Let’s take a closer look at what transaxillary breast augmentation is and its benefits.

What Is Transaxillary Breast Augmentation?

Transaxillary Breast Augmentation is still breast augmentation, but the incision site is located in the underarm. This procedure is done to increase the size of breasts, fix asymmetry issues, enhance the shape of breasts, and more. This is often done by different types of implants and sculpting of existing tissue.

Benefits of a Transaxillary Incision

The site of the incision for a breast augmentation dictates how the operation is done, recovery times, and scarring. Transaxillary breast augmentations have the primary benefit of not having easily visible scarring. Any surgical procedure requiring an incision is going to have some form of scar.

Traditional breast augmentation makes an incision underneath the breasts or on the breasts. Eventually, these scars will heal and fade over time. However, breast augmentation is often done for cosmetic reasons, and some women may not feel comfortable with the scarring. That’s where transaxillary breast augmentations become incredibly useful.

The scarring from the incision will remain on the underarm and be barely visible. Again, the scar will eventually heal and fade, but there will be no scarring on your breasts. A transaxillary breast augmentation is a great option for women who are worried about scar tissue on their breasts.
