Trans-axillary breast augmentation utilizes the axillae for placement of mammary prosthesis. The procedure is performed with an endoscope that allows visualization of the distal ends of the breast pocket. In general, we tell patients that in order to be a good candidate for trans-axillary breast augmentation, the breasts have to be relatively symmetric to being with. In addition, the breast cannot have any degree of ptosis. Ptotic breasts will need come component of a mastopexy to make the breast appear more youthful. The armpit scar initially becomes very thick after surgery, but then the scar remodels and softens over the course of a year. The trans-axillary breast augmentation can have a nice appearance post-surgery.
