Within this article, we will touch upon the technique of this unique surgery, benefits, ideal candidates, highly reviewed plastic surgeons, pricing and so much more about the transaxillary breast augmentation procedure.
As most people know, the Breast augmentation surgery also known as augmentation mammoplasty is a surgical procedure used to improve the size and shape of the breasts using implants, for either cosmetic or medical reasons. Transaxillary breast augmentation involves a specific incision created in the armpit. From this incision, the implants can be pressed into the breast area.
This innovative and unique technique produces a breast augmentation without scarring. However, it does require some adjustments and special training to perfect the outcome.
Jolie Plastic Surgery Miami has a team of certified plastic surgeons who uphold the highest standards of practice when performing any treatment or procedure. Among them we have Dr. Jonathan Fisher, double Board certified in maxillofacial surgery and plastic surgery breast augmentation specialist.
Dr. Fisher has performed and perfected the transaxillary breast augmentation surgery procedures for women all over the United States, with full understanding all techniques. He has worked with hundreds of patients who choose the transaxillary method of breast augmentation surgery utilizing the fold on the patient’s armpit.
For patients who wish to avoid scars completely, Dr. Fisher recommends choosing the Transaxillary breast augmentation incisions.
On the day of the operation, the doctor will give the patient a mild sedative. Once the patient is relaxed, attendees will take the patient to the operating room. At the beginning of the operation, the surgeon makes a small incision in the back of the axillary dome to begin the process of breast augmentation, and then hits a vertical access tunnel which perpendicularly crosses all nerve fibers.
By placing the implants under the muscle, the doctor then examines the pectoral muscles to accommodate the breast. In some cases, puts on the muscles. In both cases, the doctor then manually places the implants in their respective locations.
Since the surgery does not take a long time, about a one hour, local anesthesia with sedation is generally used. The patient can go home a few hours after surgery. Ask a friend to drive you home, as anesthesia can leave you a bit groggy.

At Jolie Plastic Surgery, we understand that preparing for your breast procedure can be overwhelming and nerve-wrecking. At the initial consultation, your surgeon will perform a physical exam and run through your complete medical history to ensure that you are an ideal candidate.
To be an ideal candidate for this procedure, the patient must have a fold in their armpit area in order to make the perfect incision.
The Doctor may also recommend a mammogram to track any possible changes in breast tissue. Your surgeon will provide you with a list of pre-operative breast augmentation safety instructions that you must follow.
Some of these may include:
A breast enhancement surgery is considered a major cosmetic procedure due to the incisions and extraction of breast tissue. Therefore, this surgery must be performed under general anesthesia to ensure comfort and painless procedure.
While receiving general anesthesia, the patient is intubated by way of a certified anesthesiologist who inserts a breathing tube through your throat. Throughout the procedure, the anesthesiologist will administer intravenous medication to ensure you stay sedated throughout the procedure.
At first you will feel at ease and calmed at the intravenous medication begins. After you are relaxed, the general anesthesia will be administered. This is the moment in which you will not remember feeling or consciousness throughout the procedure. Your blood pressure and pulse will remained at a low level and monitored during the entire process.
Rest assured that Jolie Plastic Surgery provides the highest trained anesthesiologists in the South Florida Area. Our anesthesiologist team constantly overlooks the patient’s vital functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, and rate of breathing at the time of the procedure.
There are various types of breast incisions when performing an enlargement: periareolar, inframammary, and transaxillary breast augmentation. Most plastic surgeons prefer one method over the other, while some may recommend a certain incision that suits the individual best.
Below are the advantage and disadvantages of each incision type:
Periareolar (around the areola) incision
Inframammary (below breast) incision:
Transaxillary breast augmentation Miami (armpit incision) incision:
Although incisions are dependent on certain patient factors and ideal characteristics, the certified breast plastic surgeons at Jolie suggest the transaxillary incisions for the most natural breast results. This is because the scar produced after the inframmamry and periareolar approach is more noticeable to the human eye.
