Interested in Breast Augmentation Without the Scars? We’ve Got You Covered
Breast augmentation is the most effective way to increase breast size and can provide beautiful results for women looking to enhance their breast shape. As wonderful as breast implants can be, traditional methods do come with a downside: scars.
Dr. Pancholi offers a unique approach that can be a great option for certain patients—the transaxillary technique. This procedure involves making a small incision in the folds of the armpit instead of on the breast itself, significantly reducing visible scarring after breast augmentation. This technique is less likely to affect nipple sensation, and evidence of surgery will be nearly invisible—even when you wear the skimpiest bikini top, revealing clothing, or have on nothing at all.
When Dr. Pancholi makes a transaxillary incision during a breast augmentation procedure, he does not cut the breast tissue. Instead, he controls breast implant placement through an incision in the armpit. The folds of the underarm naturally hide the small scar, minimizing any evidence of the incision.
The transaxillary incision is Dr. Pancholi’s most common approach, as not many women want scars on their breasts if it isn’t necessary.
It is important to know that this technique is not as simple to perform as a typical breast augmentation. If you’re looking for this scarless breast augmentation option, you need to be sure the cosmetic surgeon you choose has substantial expertise and experience in the procedure.
Dr. Pancholi uses a state-of-the-art camera to see the tissues located under the muscle, enabling him to properly view the area and skillfully place each breast implant. Additionally, he uses highly specialized surgical instruments that are designed to make the transaxillary technique safe and effective. Dr. Pancholi has been using this technique since 2006 and has performed over 1,000 transaxillary breast augmentations.
You may be surprised to hear that, despite the extra instruments, care, and skill the transaxillary technique requires, this type of breast augmentation is considered less invasive than others and only takes about 30 minutes to complete. The recovery time is the same as traditional approaches and the surgery does not affect the functionality of the armpit.
Is the Transaxillary Technique Safe?
In-depth research shows that transaxillary breast augmentation is safe when performed by a surgeon that has expertise in the technique. Some people believe that this technique may interfere with bodily functions like sweating or increase the risk of infection, but transaxillary breast augmentation is no more risky than traditional breast augmentation techniques. Perspiration is sterile, so there is no increased risk of infection. This incision has been shown to have little or no effect on sweating.
In the hands of an experienced cosmetic surgeon, the transaxillary breast augmentation technique will not affect the functionality of the the armpit or the arm.
Many patients are seeking the transaxillary technique, but it is not easy to find a surgeon who is qualified to perform it. Dr. Pancholi is one of two surgeons in the region who regularly and successfully perform this procedure. His superior breast implant placement skills and compassionate approach make him well-suited to offer this discrete method for reducing scarring after breast augmentation.
