LAS VEGAS, April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the most common questions that breast augmentation patients have is whether they will have visible scars after surgery. Scars are visible with most breast augmentation procedures, but there is one effective method for completely hiding them: the transaxillary technique. Inserting implants through the axilla or armpit is a unique technique that requires advanced surgical skills and can be an excellent choice for women who prefer to avoid visible scars on their breasts.
"Breast augmentation patients can get excellent, natural-looking results from the transaxillary technique," explains Dr. Samir Pancholi, a cosmetic surgeon who specializes in this technique.
The transaxillary method involves making a small incision in a fold of the armpit. Afterward, Dr. Pancholi uses special instruments and a magnifying camera to precisely design a pocket for the new implant. Using this technique, he is able to accurately place saline or silicone implants without making an incision on the breast.
"I am constantly striving to perform breast augmentation without the appearance of scars," Dr. Pancholi continues. "I have had particular success with the transaxillary technique and am pleased to offer my patients this technique."
The transaxillary technique is very low risk for the right candidates. However, it is not a simple procedure. Successful transaxillary augmentation requires proper training and excellent surgical skills; patients seeking the procedure should choose a surgeon who has proven experience with the method. Dr. Pancholi has extensive training in this technique, and a proven track record of success.
"Women considering an augmentation are often excited to learn about the transaxillary option for scarless breast augmentation," explains Dr. Pancholi. "Our patients have had excellent results, and I want to get the word out to women that they can indeed have a successful surgical breast augmentation without scars."
