Scarless Breast Implants Have Become the Most Popular Type of Breast Augmentation Surgery that Dr. Adrian Lo, of Philadelphia, PA, Performs on Women.

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 24, 2014

Dr. Adrian Lo states, "This type of surgery gives the perkiness and cleavage that you desire, and no one can tell that you have had the surgery!"

Dr. Lo explains that, “Many women are choosing the armpit incision for their breast implant surgery. Transaxillary breast augmentation avoids scars on the breast and avoids cutting through the breast tissue when placing the breast implants underneath the muscle. The armpit scar normally heals well and is barely visible! Women sometimes wonder if this type of surgery is more difficult, or painful, and the answer is “no” to both. The surgery is actually easier!” The care of the armpit incision is very simple. The armpit should be washed once a day and antibiotic ointment applied. The stitches dissolve on their own. Deodorant can be used after 5 days and shaving can also be resumed after 5 days. 

What is the recovery after transaxillary breast implant surgery? After the surgery, patients go home the same day. They can expect to have some pain for 1-3 days and the intensity varies from patient to patient but is well controlled with pain relief medications and Valium as a muscle relaxant. Patients can drive in 5-7 days if you feel up to it. No heavy lifting over 10 lbs for 2 weeks and no repetitive chest or arm movements.

When can patients exercise after breast implant surgery? Generally, they may begin light exercise 2-3 weeks after the surgery. This would be walking and treadmill. Lower body exercises may be started at any time the patient may feel comfortable. Upper body exercises are started at 3-4 weeks but no chest exercises for 6 weeks.

Is the armpit cut safe? Yes, it is extremely safe. The cut in the armpit is very superficial and does not interfere with any blood vessels, nerves or lymphatics. It is less invasive than the nipple or crease incision and does not cut through breast tissue. Dr. Adrian Lo has performed hundreds of transaxillary breast augmentations over the last 25 years with no major or even minor complications. (Dr. Lo cautions that you may read about complications of this surgery that are performed by less experienced surgeons.)

Transaxillary Breast Augmentation gives the best look possible with NO scars on the breasts. With the armpit cut, patients can be assured that their breasts will look as good as possible and meet their expectations and goals. Whatever cup size is desired, full B, small, average or full C, D or DD cup size or larger, the breasts will be as the patient wants, full, perky, as much as cleavage as desired and as natural as desired. And the best part of it all, is that patients will have no scars on their breasts and so no one will know they have breast implants.
