Procedure Overview

This is a 40 year-old Chinese mother of 3 who presented with hollow and deflated breasts after breastfeeding. She underwent breast augmentation with 325 cc smooth round saline implants placed in the dual plane subpectoral position through a transaxillary endoscopic approach. She went from a 34A to 34C size.


Doctor's Notes

Breast implants can correct volume loss and hollowing after breast feeding.

For this patient, the implants were placed through the armpit using a small camera called an endoscope. This approach is called the transaxillary endoscopic approach for breast augmentation. This is a popular method for select patients who wish to avoid scars on the breast.

Using an endoscope is critical to the transaxillary approach because it allows the implant pocket to be created precisely under direct vision, ensuring optimal control of bleeding, proper division of the muscle attachments, and proper implant placement. The transaxillary endoscopic approach is a highly specialized technique that requires additional expertise and is only performed by a few surgeons.
