Breast Augmentation Guide Part 2 – The Benefits & Who Is An Ideal Candidate

Transaxillary sub-muscular breast augmentation is a special type of breast surgery that enables patients to get all the benefits of breast augmentation but without the unwanted scars left behind on the breasts after surgery.

Dr Lynam is currently the only doctor in Richmond who offers this type of surgery to his patients.

No-Scar Breast Augmentation Benefits

Below are the main benefits of the no-scar breast augmentation method that Dr Lynam uses –

  • A natural look & feel
    Because of the type of implants used in transaxillary breast augmentation, the look and feel of the breasts are incredibly natural. The IDEAL IMPLANT was designed by a plastic surgeon and is ideal for this particular type of breast surgery. Having breasts that don’t look or feel natural is a very common concern for women who are considering breast surgery so this is a big benefit.
  • No scar under the breasts
    The thing that makes transaxillary breast augmentation so appealing is that there are no scars left on the breasts themselves. With traditional breast augmentation, the incisions are made underneath the breasts so the implants can be inserted. However with the transaxillary method, the incisions are made at the armpits so there are no scars underneath the breasts.
  • Scars hidden from view
    Another big benefit of transaxillary breast augmentation is that the scars are placed at the armpits, so they’re hidden from view most of the time. This is much more preferable to having the scars on the breasts themselves.

Am I a good candidate?

There are several factors that make a good candidate for no-scar breast augmentation. Below are some of the main ones –

  • You are not pregnant or breast-feeding
    If you are currently pregnant or breast-feeding then you’re not a suitable candidate for breast surgery. This is because pregnancy often affects the size and shape of the breasts and also because breast surgery can affect your ability to breast feed.
  • You are in good physical health
    Being in good physical health is another important factor to quality as a good candidate for breast augmentation. You should be free from any major health complications that could impair your ability to recovery properly.

The best way to find out for sure if you’re a good candidate for no scar breast augmentation is to schedule a consultation with Dr Lynam. Get in touch now to schedule your consultation where you can have all your questions answered.
