Dr. Adrian Lo has refined the scarless breast implant technique so that the new “Gummy Bear” implants or highly cohesive gel/silicone implants can be placed through the cut in the armpit. This is great news, as in the past, the cut or incision had to be made underneath the breast(crease incision) or below the nipple (areola incision).
Now you can have no scars on your breast and still enjoy the benefits of the gummy bear/silicone implants. Dr Adrian Lo is one of few plastic surgeons in the country that perform this technique. Call Dr Lo for a consultation and see if you are a candidate for scarless breast implant surgery with gummy bear implants as most women will qualify for this advanced technique. Dr Lo has placed all sizes of silicone or gummy bear implants through the armpit from 225 cc to 750 cc.
Is the armpit cut safe?
Yes, it is extremely safe. The cut in the armpit is very superficial and does not interfere with any blood vessels, nerves or lymphatics. It is less invasive than the nipple or crease incision and does not cut through your breast tissue. Dr. Adrian Lo has performed hundreds of transaxillary breast augmentations over the last 23 years with no major or even minor complications. (Dr. Lo cautions that you may read about complications of this surgery that are performed by less experienced surgeons)
