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.
One of the most vital things you need to do when you want to have a breast implant is to know the perfect fit for your breast. There are several women, and each has different breasts and amounts of implant that is required to achieve a satisfactory result. Dr Najem will help you in figuring out the right implant size that suits your personality and person. With his experience and proven track record of excellence, he will help you determine the ideal size instead of giving you a one-size-fits-all implant size.
Ideally, when it comes to breast shapes, there are two types of shapes – round and anatomic. The round shape, just as the name describes, gives you a round and more confident, full, and firm-looking result. The anatomic, on the other hand, give you more like a tear-drop feel, something looking very natural and almost seamless feel. The anatomic gives a soft feel and a sloping effect on the upper pole of your breasts.
The question of what shape would be right for you depends on two factors. One factor totally depends on you, what you want, the shape you feel is right for you, or which you think is more beautiful. Another factor to be considered if you have any pre-existing medical condition that would either inform your choice of the shape to pick or would advise you not to even try the breast implant at all.
Some of the benefits of having a round breast implant are; you get to have a natural shape of your breast using soft silicone gel implants. You get a richer cleavage or upper poles as others call it with a firm silicone gel. You also don’t have to frequently go to the hospital to have your surgery raised, because, with this shape, you have a reduced risk of breast implant rotation.
Some of the benefits if the anatomical implants are; after breastfeeding, your breasts tend to sag, but with this implant, you will be able to correct the mild breast ptosis and have your breast looking firmer and stronger. You also get a good grip on your breast tuberous lower pole deficiency, and you end up having your breast looking as natural as possible with a mild cleavage appearing. All these and more are the benefits that you are bound to enjoy after successful breast surgery.
Before the day of the surgery, you are advised to have a consultation with the doctor to know what you are going into. You should also be able to inform the doctor about any form of medical complications or conditions you have. This will help in creating an excellent and customized service for you.
After the consultation has been carried out, and everything has been put in place, the next thing to do is to book an appointment. On the day of the surgery, you will be expected to visit the doctor who would draw on your breast to plan the right placement and the portion of the breast the incision is to be made for the breast implant.
Just as any conventional surgery would go, it is imperative that you are well aware of all of the potential risks and complications that are directly associated with breast augmentation.
It is crucial you read through our compiled list to understand some of the things that you might be faced with. These complications can be better explained when you have your consultation session if, in doubt, it is best you seek advice before running off to have your breasts implanted.
Some of the risks involved with breast augmentation surgery are:
Further details can be discussed during your consultation.
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.
