This revolutionary procedure has boosted the accuracy and efficiency of breast augmentation, providing surgeons with greater visibility. Considering the complexities involved with breast surgery (separating muscle fibres, placing implants, controlling bleeding), this is incredibly important.
Endoscopes are small cameras equipped with tiny lights, which enable surgeons to explore a patient’s insides without needing to operate ‘blindly’. Dr Adam uses the latest endoscopes for the best accuracy and flexibility, ensuring a deeper insight and efficiency.
Endoscopic transaxillary breast augmentation is performed by making a pocket in the patient’s armpit, before inserting the endoscope to shine light on their work. The camera feeds footage to a screen, on which Dr Adam will monitor his progress and prepare for the implant’s placement.
Dr Adam begins this procedure by making incisions along the armpits, along a natural skin crease. He endeavours to minimise the visibility of scars as much as possible, to ensure more discrete results.
After the incision has been made in the armpit area, a channel to the breast to be augmented is created. Pockets are formed behind the breasts, into which the implants will be placed. The implants themselves can be placed in different positions, depending on the results the patient wants to achieve and their body. Breast implants may be placed above or under the pectoralis muscle, beneath the breast tissue.
Both silicone and saline implants are available for Endoscopic Transaxillary Breast Augmentation procedures. Saline implants may be filled after being inserted as shells, enabling Dr Adam to create small incisions. Silicone remains popular for the natural results they create, though incisions must be large enough to accommodate insertion.
There are numerous reasons to choose this cutting-edge method, including:
Smaller breasts are a common cause of self-esteem issues in women, potentially affecting their body confidence and self-image. They may feel unable to wear certain clothes, and see breast augmentation as a solution.
Endoscopic Transaxillary breast augmentation is ideal for patients who want to achieve the most natural-looking results with maximum discretion. Perhaps you would feel self-conscious of others knowing that you have undergone an augmentation and would prefer to keep the procedure as private as possible.
Dr Adam Najem will discuss your options and explain the process involved at length, during your consultation. You will no doubt have a number of questions and concerns, and Dr Adam will address all of these in jargon-free language. He will explore the results you want to achieve, and the different types of implants and placements available to you. This is a complex procedure requiring considerable thought, and Dr Adam is dedicated to making it all as easy as possible.
The recovery time is much shorter than with traditional breast augmentation, so most patients only have to wear their compression garment for two weeks. For two weeks after this, the patient will only have to wear it for some of the time.
Dr Najem recommends that patients do not do any strenuous activities for at least the first two weeks. After this period, light exercise is allowed, but strenuous exercise should not be done for at least four weeks.
This procedure starts from $7,900, however, your final investment will be determined after consultation with Dr Adam. Final costings will depend on your desired goals.
