How much does Transaxillary Breast Augmentation
The chief benefit with transaxillary breast augmentation is the lack of scarring. With standard breast
enhancement surgeries, incisions are made to the breasts, either along the crease underneath the breast, as a
vertical incision from the base of the breast up to the nipple area (known as inframammary incision), around the
areola, or a combination of the above.
Transaxillary breast augmentation does away with these incisions, simply making a small incision in the armpit,
where any scarring will be less noticeable, even if the tissue doesn't mend as well as it should.
There is also evidence to suggest that transaxillary breast augmentation is less likely to create problems with
breast feeding than with surgery procedures where the incisions are made to the breast and areola areas.
The site for the implant insertion is the armpit. Following the incision, a tunnel is made under the skin and
through the subcutaneous fat, generally using an endoscope. It is this passage that the implant is fed through.
The breast implant will necessarily be a saline one, which will be implanted in its deflated state, and filled
with saline solute when it is properly in place. Finally, the incision to the armpits will be sutured.
The best method of breast augmentation surgery for you should be discussed between yourself and the surgeon. If
you are keen to get breast implant surgery, but are concerned about scarring, then transaxillary breast
augmentation surgery may be the solution. However you should be aware that transaxillary breast augmentation does
pose a separate set of risks to inframammary implant methods.
Also, if you are planning to combine a breast lift with implant surgery, then you should be aware that it will
possibly not be practical to use transaxillary incisions for the implants.
As it is not safe to fill silicone gel implants once in situ, your implants will be saline ones, which will be
inflated once the implants are placed correctly.
You will have the normal choices of breast implant size and shape, allowing you to choose between larger or
smaller, natural-looking teardrop or the more artificial-looking round implants.
In addition to the normal risks of breast augmentation surgery, there is a higher than normal risk of the
procedure not looking right, as the operation is performed remotely. For this reason it is especially important to
find a surgeon who is skilled and experienced, not only in breast enhancement surgery, but specifically in
transaxillary breast augmentation.
You also need to know that in the instance of further surgery being required to the breasts, the surgeon will be
unlikely to be able to use the original incision sites, so you may end up with some scarring after all.
There are some breast surgeons who regard the transaxillary and transumbilical procedures as creating extra
risks of the surgery going wrong. On the flip side, there are also surgeons who believe strongly that this is not
the case, provided the surgeon has the necessary level of expertise.
As with all surgery procedures, your fees for Transaxillary Breast Augmentation will take into account the level
of skill required for the procedure, the expertise of your breast surgeon and also the local market forces which
dictate how much can and should be charged for an operation.
Due to the skill required of your cosmetic surgeon, you should expect to pay more than you would for standard
breast augmentation. It is possible, however, to travel abroad and get the treatment for a considerably lower
price. Countries such as the Czech Republic, Belgium, Singapore and
Malaysia are all known for their skilled breast surgeons.
