Axillary breast augmentation

An innovative breast augmentation technique

Transaxillary breast augmentation is a state-of-the-art technique for placing breast implants while avoiding any visible scarring on the breast. The procedure involves a short incision in a natural crease in the armpit so that there are no visible signs that surgery has been performed.

Dr. Christophe Desouches, who regularly practices all methods of breast augmentation (breast implant, lipofilling), recommends this approach whenever possible via the axillary incision (through the armpit).

Results and advantages of this method

Due to the expertise and experience of Dr. Christophe Desouches, the result is natural breast augmentation with no obvious scars or signs of surgery.

Invisible scars

The scar in the armpit is one of the least detectable of all breast augmentation procedures. The incision is placed directly into one of the natural skin folds so that when it heals, it blends in with the natural appearance of the armpit. In addition, the incision is short and may not exceed 3 cm in length.

Perfect implant position

Transaxillary breast augmentation performed by an experienced plastic surgeon allows the implants to be placed at the ideal height. The height of the implant is then assessed during the operation in a half-sitting position and is not limited by the position of the submammary scar decided preoperatively.

The breasts have a natural separation, the intermammary distance (between the breasts) which reflects the anatomy, this distance cannot however be modified.

When performed correctly, the transaxillary approach therefore allows optimal positioning of the implants.

Axillary breast augmentation is painless

The discomfort that results from the procedure is similar to other implant methods. The pain is mainly due to the submuscular breast augmentation, the implants in front of the muscle in the subfascial position being much less painful.

How is transaxillary augmentation performed?

It begins with a short incision placed in a natural crease high in the armpit. Dr. Christophe Desouches limits the incision to only 3 to 4 cm in length. Thanks to this incision, he creates a space in front or behind the pectoral muscle to accommodate the implant. The axillary incision sits at the edge of the muscle, giving the surgeon direct access to the implant location, without touching the muscle or the breast itself

He then inserts test implants (sizer) in order to select the ideal size of the implant. Once the ideal size is confirmed, the sizers are removed and the permanent breast implants placed. The incision is closed with deep stitches that slowly resorb without any visible threads on the skin.

The type of implant used by Dr. Christophe Desouches is generally a round implant based on cohesive silicone gel without texturing (smooth implant).
