Transaxillary Endoscopic Augmentation Mammoplasty
Though the design process before surgery is aimed for accuracy, through the axillary approach, it is possible to adjust a new inframammary fold level, therefore in the cases that are difficult to design the new inframammary fold, and implant sizer can be used during the surgery to determine the new inframammary fold position. The aseptic preparation is important in the preoperative stage; however it is also crucial that the operation progresses aseptically. During surgery, it is also critical to stop the bleeding vessels with meticulous electro-cauterization to prevent postoperative bleeding. After the insertion of the implants, the breast shape and new inframammary fold needs to be checked again, as well as if there are any internal bleeding, and then skin suture is performed. The emphasis of minimal bleeding and aseptic performance is critical during surgery.
