Transaxillary Breast Augmentation

Transaxillary breast augmentation is a common procedure at our Newport Beach practice. I typically tell patients that in order to be a good candidate for transaxillary augmentation, the breasts need to be relatively symmetric to begin with.

Transaxillary breast augmentation is performed endoscopically, with an endoscope placed through the axillae. The endoscope allows the operative surgeon to gain access to the pectoralis major fibers at the inferior aspect of the breast.

When the pectoralis fibers are released the mammary prosthesis is placed into the breast pocket and symmetry is confirmed. The axillary incisions are closed and steri-stirps are placed in the axilla.
