Breast Augmentation Armpits Miami

Breast augmentation surgery, also known as augmentation mammoplasty is a surgical procedure used to improve the size and shape of the breasts using implants, for either cosmetic or medical reasons. Eres Plastic Surgery Miami has a team of surgeons who uphold the highest standards of practice. Among them we have Dr. Jonathan Fisher, double Board certified in maxillofacial surgery and plastic surgery breast augmentation specialist.

Dr. Fisher at Eres Plastic Surgery has performed one of the most popular surgical procedures for women all over the United States, breast augmentation surgery. He has worked with hundreds of patients who choose this type of surgery using the transaxillary method. For patients who wish to avoid scars completely, Dr. Fisher recommends choosing underarm incisions.

Transaxillary breast augmentation involves an incision in the armpit. From this incision, the implants can be fed into the breast area. This technique produces a breast augmentation without scarring. However, it does require some adjustments. Also, there are other ways to non-surgical breast augmentation which you need discuss with your doctor prior to surgery.

How the Axillary surgery works.

On the day of the operation, the doctor will give the patient a mild sedative. Once the patient is relaxed, attendees will take the patient to the operating room. At the beginning of the operation, the surgeon makes a small incision in the back of the axillary dome to begin the process of breast augmentation, and then hits a vertical access tunnel which perpendicularly crosses all nerve fibers. By placing the implants under the muscle, the doctor then examines the pectoral muscles to accommodate the breast. In some cases, puts on the muscles. In both cases, the doctor then manually places the implants in their respective locations. Since the surgery does not take a long time, about a one hour, local anesthesia with sedation is generally used. The patient can go home a few hours after surgery. Ask a friend to drive you home, as anesthesia can leave you a bit groggy.

Sensory nerves of the breast are the dorsal anterior branches known as intercostal nerves that travel the space between the ribs to emerge at the level of the serratus muscle, and penetrating the breast from the outside. Dr. Fisher explains that this situation makes it likely that surgeons who are not experienced in this procedure may damage or cut these sensory nerves.

Common questions and answers about Breast Augmentation Armpits Miami.

Can I travel after a breast implant surgery?
You should wait for at least 2 weeks before traveling after your breast surgery. A good rule of thumb is once you are out of the strongest pain medication and can able to get up without help, then you are ready to go for a short drive that will not involve the effort of your arms.
When can I return to work?
Most people return to work after a week or two. If your job involves a lot of lifting or physical activity, you may have to wait 5-6 weeks until you are ready for work.
Are there any possibilities of having asymmetrical breasts after surgery?
No need to worry, Dr. Fisher has a lot experience with this procedure and he has never had any asymmetric problem. Moreover, most patients naturally have asymmetric breasts. During the operation, the doctor can easily correct the asymmetry by matching the size of the implants.
Does the warranty still apply to transaxillary breast augmentation implants?
The implant is simply rolled up and placed on the chest. No objects can pinch off the implant. As such, the warranty still applies to manufactured implants for axillary procedures.
Is the transaxillary breast augmentation surgery more expensive than a regular breast augmentation implant procedure?
Some doctors may charge more for it. Eres Plastic Surgery’s prices are very affordable, and this procedure uses techniques that cost much less than the usual techniques of breast augmentation implants. The main reason is that it takes less time and it uses only local anesthesia.
Who is a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery via the armpit?
This procedure is aimed for women who wish to enhance the size and shape of their breasts, correct uneven breasts, or women who simply want to improve their breasts after pregnancy or an excessive weight loss. Some women may also be dissatisfied with the original size of their breasts and perhaps wish to correct a unilateral or bilateral congenital deformity of the breasts.
How big are the scars under the armpits after breast augmentation surgery?
They are very small scars located at armpit level and nothing shows.
Can I breastfeed after undergoing breast augmentation surgery?
The place where the implants are placed will not prevent breast milk since it occurs at glandular level and it will not hinder milk flow from the nipple, nor alter the breast milk quality.
Is there any age limit for an axillary breast augmentation?
There is no minimum age for this operation. Once the breasts have developed, about 16 or 17 years of age, and the full development of secondary sexual characteristics has been completed, the patient is ready for this procedure.
