The Advantages of Endoscopic Breast Augmentation
In considering breast augmentation surgery, many women are concerned about a scar that can tell the tale of the surgery.Although Dr. Rai uses the best techniques during surgery and recommends a good regimen of post-surgical care to minimize the scarring, some scarring is inevitable following all surgery.
Most of the time, scars are made more subtle by making incisions around the nipple (periareolar incision) or under the breast (inframammary incision), but for some women these scars may be a concern.If you are worried about scars on the breast following augmentation surgery, you should consider endoscopic breast augmentation.
In endoscopic breast augmentation, a tiny incision is made either in the underarm area (transaxillary incision) or in the navel (transumbilical incision). A tiny tool known as an endoscope is used to clear a track to the breast, then put the breast implant, which is deflated and rolled, in place.Once in place, the breast implant is inflated.This procedure cannot be performed with silicone breast implants, which come pre-filled from the manufacturer.
Endoscopic breast augmentation also has the advantage of minimizing the risk of loss in breast sensation that sometimes occurs following augmentation surgery.It also has a shorter healing time than more traditional breast augmentation surgery.
