Doctor's Notes

Transaxillary breast augmentation has a bad reputation among some plastic surgeons. This is because most plastic surgeons performing this approach use a blind technique, in which the implant pocket is created by blindly sweeping a large dissecting instrument under the muscle. This does not release the lower attachments of the pectoralis muscle properly. The end result is a high incidence of superior implant malposition and capsular contracture. No wonder there is a bad reputation!

SMART Transaxillary Breast Augmentation involves use of an endoscope, which allows precise pocket creation under direct vision, ensuring proper hemostasis, implant placement, and release of the pectoralis major muscle.

The end result are beautiful, natural looking augmented breasts without a visible scar on the breast.
