Dr Adrian Lo was one of the early innovators of Scarless Breast Implant surgery or transaxillary breast augmentation in the Philadelphia area starting in 1991. Dr. Lo began refining the technique by using a video system and endoscope, which is a camera at the end of a long thin tube to assist in making a precise pocket for placement of the breast implant. By making a small 1 inch cut in the armpit, your saline breast implant is placed in the exact position behind your muscle and natural breast. This is called a “submuscular placement”.
The saline implant is a silicone shell filled with saline (natural salt water). These implants allow you to achieve a fuller, perkier look – and yield great results for woman desiring a larger size breast.
Once the saline implant is placed, it is then inflated with saline to your desired cup size be it a B, C, D , DD size or larger. The scarless breast implant technique is ideal for women wishing to not worry about follow up mammograms as well, as they are not required after saline implants.
Dr Lo has performed saline implants through the armpit cut in hundreds of women over the last 23 years meeting their goals for their ideal breast look.
