Characteristics of performing an endoscopic breast augmentation.

Beautiful and voluminous breasts are the dream of all representatives of the fair sex, only nature does not reward everyone with it. Endoscopic breast augmentation involves a surgical procedure for implant implantation.

The main advantages of the method

Among other techniques that allow you to increase the volume of the breast and correct its defects, endoscopy has some advantages:

  1. Preservation of the possibility of breastfeeding babies. The implant is placed directly under the muscle. This location does not interfere in any way with the natural functions of the mammary gland.
  2. The chest retains the most aesthetic appearance. The ability to place the seam in the armpit makes it practically invisible. After a few months, the scar dissolves and disappears. The implanted implant cannot be seen through the skin, so the breast retains its natural appearance.
  3. Short operating time. Thanks to the use of an endoscope, the doctor has the opportunity to examine the entire operative field and monitor the process. The manipulations performed become more precise, and the procedure itself lasts no more than an hour.
  4. The recovery period passes quickly. The tissues during the operation are not too traumatized, the healing process goes fast and well. After 2 weeks, the patient can return to her usual lifestyle, but with some reservations.

Who is the breast augmentation procedure indicated for?

In which cases is an endoscopic breast augmentation or correction planned? For example, in the following:

breast measurement before endoscopic augmentation
  • insufficient development of the mammary gland;
  • small breast size;
  • sagging breasts, which could be the result of feeding the baby or a sharp decrease in weight;
  • asymmetry of the chest;
  • Deformation of the chest resulting from trauma or surgery.

Preparation period

As with any operation, mammoplasty requires a certain preparation of the patient, proving the absence of contraindications. You will need to perform the following tests before breast augmentation:

  • undergo an ultrasound of the breast;
  • get a general blood test;
  • set the blood clotting time;
  • do a blood test for AIDS, hepatitis, biochemistry, genital infections.

A preliminary consultation with an anesthesiologist will be required, who will help to identify in advance the possible complications of anesthesia during the operation. Any surgery is an intervention on the body and a violation of natural processes, therefore the preliminary preparation must be taken very seriously.

How is the operation performed?

There are several ways that endoscopic breast augmentation can be performed:

  1. An incision directly below the mammary gland. Their length, as a rule, does not exceed 3. 5 centimeters. The downside to this option is that even with the most successful suture healing, when only a thin scar remains at the wound site, the scar can periodically remind both the woman and her partner of a breast augmentation operation. .
  2. Incision near the nipple. This option is fraught with consequences. First, scar formation is still unavoidable. Second is the inability to breastfeed future children. During the operation, some ducts and the glandular tissue itself are affected. In the future, if a woman wants to have a child and becomes pregnant, it will be impossible to feed her with breast milk. Another complication that most scares the patients who opted for this particular breast augmentation method is the possible total loss of nipple sensitivity. In this case, the bust will already be defective.
  3. Operation through axillary access. It is considered the most successful and safest option for breast augmentation. The breast tissue remains intact, so in the future it will be possible to feed the children without any problems. The scar that forms under the armpit can finally dissolve in six months, so it won't spoil the result at all. In general, the procedure to insert the implant through the axillary access under the pectoral muscle is more convenient, but requires some endoscopic equipment to be performed. It will be necessary not only to cut muscle tissue, but also not to damage the large vessels that pass here. In general, much less time is spent on the entire procedure. Breast augmentation through the armpit significantly shortens the recovery period. If the clinic has a modern laser installation, the chances of a favorable result of the operation increase several times.

A month before the operation, you need to adjust the diet and review the diet. This is especially true for those women who regularly go on diets. The lack of trace elements and vitamins leads to poor healing of damaged tissues. For a couple of weeks, they stop taking all the medications that can affect blood clotting. As a general rule, your list is issued for consultation by a surgeon or anesthesiologist. In three days, you should try to quit smoking: due to this bad habit, a rough and ugly scar can form.

In no case should you drink alcoholic beverages before or after the operation. Alcohol is the strictest contraindication of all drugs for anesthesia and medications.

The operation is carried out in a conventional operating room, where the maintenance of sterility is guaranteed.


Like any medical procedure, endoscopic mammoplasty has a number of contraindications, in the presence of which it is worth refusing to perform breast augmentation surgery in order to avoid further negative consequences. These include:

  • any neoplasm in the area of the mammary glands (both malignant and benign);
  • current infectious diseases;
  • chronic or acute diseases of the internal organs;
  • diabetes;
  • blood diseases;
  • poor blood clotting;
  • younger age;
  • if it has not been a year after the end of breastfeeding;
  • mental abnormalities or unstable psychological state of the patient.


On the first day after the operation, as a rule, the patient spends in the hospital ward, where he is provided with the supervision of medical staff and the provision of qualified medical care if necessary.

During the first week after breast augmentation, patients experience pain at the incision site. Pain relievers are recommended to reduce this negative effect. In no case should physical effort be allowed. You should avoid the sharp waves of your arms, try not to raise them above the level of the shoulders. In three months, you will have to forget about going to the bathhouse or sauna, not about visiting the solarium. It is strictly forbidden to perform any procedure in the breast area during this period.

breast before and after endoscopic augmentation

The price of endoscopic breast augmentation surgery may differ not only based on the material the implant is made from, but also based on the experience and reputation of the surgeon. The price difference can be up to two times. Before opting for a cheaper option, you should think about whether you are ready to risk your health and leave it in the hands of a complete stranger.

The successful outcome of endoscopic breast augmentation through the armpit depends not only on your future appearance, but also on your health. Before deciding on such an important and responsible step, it is worth weighing all the advantages and disadvantages, make sure that there are no contraindications or reasons for concern. In the presence of the slightest deviations, it is better to abandon the operation or postpone it. The remamoplasty is extremely risky and not all specialists are committed to performing it.
