What is Scarless Breast Augmentation?


Woman after scarless breast augmentation in Phoenix Breast augmentation surgery is all about choices. You’re probably familiar with some of them: implant material, implant size, and implant shape, for example. But what about incision placement? It may come as a surprise that not all options leave visible scars on your breasts! 

The scarless breast lift is a sophisticated technique. It involves inserting breast implants through incisions in the natural crease of the armpit, instead of in the breast fold or around the areola. 

By working through the underarm, the incision is easily hidden, and will not detract from your cosmetic results. This method of incision placement is also called the transaxillary approach. 

While few surgeons have the training and experience to offer this technique, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Corey regularly performs scarless breast augmentations for satisfied patients across Arizona. The scar fades so well that it is rarely seen when raising the arms.

Benefits of Transaxillary Breast Augmentation

The most significant advantage of the transaxillary approach to breast augmentation is the lack of visible scarring on the breasts. You can wear any bathing suits, undergarments, and tops — even go au naturel — without worrying about concealing your surgical scars. However, that isn’t the only advantage of this technique. Other benefits that you may be able to expect include:

  • No scar within your breast, seen on later mammogram causing concern or needless biopsy.
  • No disruption of breast tissue, glands, or ducts.
  • Less likely to affect nipple sensation and ability to breastfeed 
  • Precise implant positioning due to the use of an endoscope
