Scarless breast augmentation – Is it possible
Once 75C please – breast augmentation is one of the most common beauty surgeries par excellence. Many women are dissatisfied with their breasts and long for a shapely, firm and larger breast. Nevertheless, because of the visible scars, many shy away from the step to the incision, or rather the decision to have a surgical procedure. For all those, endoscopic breast augmentation can be the solution.
A proven expert for this so-called “keyhole technique”, which promises a scar-free breast augmentation, is the plastic aesthetic surgeon Dr. Markus Klöppel. He has already been practicing the so-called axillary breast surgery for 18 years and has a profound background in it: “I had the great fortune to learn this nevertheless very complex surgical technique from a specialist, the renowned Professor Edgar Biemer at the Munich Klinikum Rechts der Isar.”
To this day, Dr. Klöppel is one of the few physicians in Germany to offer this endoscopic breast augmentation, in which implants are inserted through a small incision in the armpit. In Japan, the surgical technique is used almost exclusively as a standard technique.
Although this high-tech method is significantly more complex for the surgeon, it offers patients a whole range of advantages in addition to a scar-free breast. Dr. Klöppel: “With this surgical technique, the implant is pushed into the armpit through an incision about three centimeters long. This leaves the breast completely scar-free. For many women, this is not just a cosmetic issue. It just also means that both sensitivity to touch and the ability to breastfeed are completely preserved.”
A real revolution. When you don’t have to choose between a beautiful bosom and the ability to breastfeed your children. Or if you at least don’t have to put up with feeling less than before during caresses because sensitive nerve tracts have been severed by the underbust or nipple incision. Another advantage is that it is also easy to change implants with this method.
To the point – breast augmentation without through precise placement of the implant.
But how exactly does axillary breast augmentation work? Dr. Klöppel: “Through the really manageably large incision in the crease of the armpit, the special instruments are inserted, as well as a small camera that monitors the procedure. By using the mini camera and the optimal light illumination, the surgeon has an exact view of the surgical field. This allows for precise placement of the implant behind or on top of the pectoral muscle.”
Of course, the patient can also choose between the different sizes of high-quality premium silicone implants with this technique, he said, which are then pushed toward the breast through the opening in the armpit. Patient and surgeon clarify in advance, just as with any other breast augmentation, which implant is desired and at which point in the breast area the “growth” should be shown to advantage.
Low surgical risks & a scar-free breast
The procedure is precisely monitored by mini-camera, providing the highest level of safety. According to Dr. Klöppel, the risk of tissue bleeding or wound healing problems is significantly lower with this endoscopic procedure than with all other surgical techniques, which also significantly reduces postoperative pain.
Once the silicone pad is in place, it is finely sutured so that the scar in the underarm area also remains as inconspicuous as possible. Patients are immediately given a special support bra, which should be worn for about six weeks. To be on the safe side, patients stay in the hospital for at least one night after the procedure for observation. Aftercare then lasts about six weeks and can be supported by physiotherapists and specialist cosmeticians.
Among the usual OP RISKS pain, bruising, and wound healing problems may occur, although these are less common than with traditional surgical techniques. The COST for endoscopic breast augmentation are about 7,900 euros, which is about 1000 euros more than the less complex surgical technique through the underbust incision.
