Characteristics of performing endoscopic breast augmentation

Beautiful and voluminous breasts are the dream of every representative of the fair sex, but nature doesn't reward everyone with it. Endoscopic breast augmentation involves a surgical procedure to implant implants.

The main advantages of the method

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

  1. Preserving 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 breast maintains the most aesthetic appearance. The ability to position the seam in the armpit makes it virtually invisible. After a few months, the scar dissolves and disappears. The implanted implant does not show through the skin, so the breast maintains its natural appearance.
  3. Short operating time. Thanks to the use of an endoscope, the physician has the opportunity to examine the entire surgical field and control 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 very traumatized, the healing process is fast and smooth. 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 endoscopic augmentation or breast correction planned? For example, in the following:

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

preparation period

As in any operation, mammoplasty requires a certain amount of preparation from the patient, testing for the absence of any contraindication. You will need the following tests before breast augmentation:

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

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

How the operation is performed

There are several ways in which endoscopic breast augmentation can be performed:

  1. An incision directly below the mammary gland. Its 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 the woman and her partner of a breast augmentation operation.
  2. Incision near the nipple. This option is fraught with consequences. First, scarring remains inevitable. Second is the impossibility of breastfeeding 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 become pregnant, it will be impossible to feed her breast milk. Another complication that most frightens patients who opted for this specific method of breast augmentation is the possible total loss of nipple sensation. In this case, the bust will already be defective.
  3. Operation through axillary access. It is considered the safest and most successful 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 hurt the result at all. In general, the implant insertion procedure through the axillary access under the pectoralis muscle is more convenient, but it requires the use of certain endoscopic equipment. It will be necessary not only to cut the muscle tissue, but also not to damage the large vessels that pass through it. In general, much less time is spent on the entire procedure. Breast augmentation through the armpit makes it possible to significantly shorten the recovery period. If the clinic has a modern laser installation, the chances of a favorable outcome from the operation increase several times.

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

Under no circumstances should you drink alcoholic beverages before or after the operation. Alcohol is the strictest contraindication to all anesthesia medications and medications.

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


As with any medical procedure, endoscopic mammoplasty presents a series of contraindications, in view of which it is worth refusing breast augmentation surgery to avoid further negative consequences. These include:

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


The first day after the operation, as a general rule, the patient spends in the hospital ward, where he receives supervision by medical personnel and qualified medical care, if necessary.

During the first week after breast augmentation, patients experience pain at the incision site. Analgesics are recommended to reduce this negative effect. In no case should physical effort be allowed. You need to avoid sharp waves from your arms, try not to raise them above shoulder height. In three months, you will have to forget about going to the spa or sauna, so as not to visit the solarium. Performing any procedure in the breast area during this period is strictly prohibited.

breast before and after endoscopic augmentation

The price of endoscopic breast augmentation surgery can differ not only depending on the material the implant is made of, but also on the surgeon's experience and reputation. The price difference can be up to twice. 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 success of endoscopic axillary breast augmentation depends not only on future appearance but also on health status. Before deciding on such an important and responsible step, it is worth weighing all the advantages and disadvantages, making sure there are no contraindications or reasons for concern. In the presence of the smallest deviations, it is better to abandon the operation or postpone it. Re-mammoplasty is extremely risky and not every specialist is committed to doing it.
