A minimally invasive breast augmentation in Houston comes with benefits that other breast implant surgeries cannot provide. However, there are some drawbacks to this procedure that make women decide on more traditional methods.

It is entirely up to you and your expectations to decide if a transaxillary endoscopic breast augmentation is best for you. Before you decide on a type of breast augmentation, it is vital to speak with a plastic surgeon in Houston to discuss your medical history and current expectations.

Minimally Invasive Breast Augmentation Benefits

When you first learn about a transaxillary endoscopic breast augmentation, you probably are fascinated by the opportunity to have surgery or a breast lift without scars that are visible to those you are intimate with. With this type of breast augmentation, a tiny incision is made deep in your armpit and an endoscope is used. This means that you have minimal scarring that is hard to find only on your armpit and not anywhere on your breast. This breast augmentation is better for those who want a more natural look.

There will be less recovery time required with this type of surgery since your body does not have to heal as much as it would with a traditional breast augmentation. Women are generally active after two days of surgery but the full recovery time is between five and seven days with minimal pain that is manageable.

Disadvantages to Minimally Invasive Breast Augmentation Surgery

Since this is a minimally invasive breast surgery, it means that not all breast implants will work. You will have to speak with a cosmetic surgeon to know if the size breast implants you want will work with this procedure. The larger the implants the greater your chances are that a minimally invasive breast augmentation is not right for you.
