“Using an underarm/axillary incision, I believe this is a good incision as long as the patient is very diligent with breast implant care after surgery,” says Dr. Roy Kim.
He continues, “One of the concerns after this surgery is that the implant tends to drift toward the underarm incision. During consultation, I help the patient understand the need to devote a fair amount of time towards implant massage to keep the implant closer towards the base of the breast. If it feels like a good match for the patient on an individual level, then I feel that this incision is a good one.”
“It is possible to place silicone gel/ cohesive gel implants, along with saline implants, through an axillary/ underarm incision,” Dr. Kim adds.
When it comes to breast augmentation, San Francisco patients have access to remarkable techniques and advanced procedures that speed healing and recovery time. Patients are thrilled with the immediate and long-lasting results that Dr. Kim is able to deliver with short healing times.
The results are immediate and long-lasting and the recovery time is just a few short weeks. An in-depth initial consultation will review your past medical history and all current prescription or over-the-counter medications. Ideal candidates for scarless breast augmentation are healthy women without complicating medical conditions such as bleeding disorders, clotting disorders, diabetes, or uncontrolled high blood pressure. This type of procedure carries a variety of risks that are minimized by choosing a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience, such as Dr. Kim.
The most common post-operative side effects include mild to moderate pain and swelling. Both pain and swelling should subside dramatically within a couple of weeks. Scars will fade to thin white lines over a period of months and may even eventually disappear completely.
“This technique places the tiny incisions in a hidden location under the armpit. Implants are easily put in place and hidden under the different layers of tissue for a natural look and feel. When the scars heal, they are virtually invisible due to their small size and location,” explains San Francisco plastic surgeon, Dr. Kim.
