An endoscopic breast implantation uses an endoscope to help surgeons place the breast implant inside the patient’s chest wall. The benefit women have using this method is that they do not have as many scars as they would with traditional breast implants insertion methods. Any scars women do have from this procedure are well hidden. This breast implantation method comes with various benefits that appeal to women.
Benefits to Using Endoscopic Technology for Breast Implantation
Women who choose to have endoscopic breast implantation surgery will have a tiny incision in the armpit or belly button, which makes it extremely difficult to be noticed by others. A tiny camera is used to help the plastic surgeon place the implant and/or check the condition of an implant that is already there by using a viewing screen to see the image from the camera. This is very beneficial as it can alert surgeons if an implant needs to be removed before further damage is done. It can also help surgeons place the implant in its proper location to give the form of the breast exactly how the woman wants it.
Another major benefit to choosing this type of breast implant surgery is that women experience less recovery time due to having smaller incisions that need to heal. In today’s society, it can be hard for women to take a break from their life and recover from major surgery but endoscopic breast implantation can help them by reducing the overall recovery time.
Choose the Right Surgeon
Since endoscopic breast implantation surgery is relatively new, it is very important to choose a breast implant surgeon that has experience performing this procedure and has before and after photos so you can get an idea on what to expect with your surgery. A board-certified plastic surgeon experienced in endoscopic breast implant surgery is your best option.
