Can a Breast Augmentation be completed through the armpit?

Is it true that a full breast augmentation can be completed entirely through the armpit? Everything I read about this procedure seems like it is too good to be true. There is no visible scaring and the procedure does not affect the breast tissue. Why would anyone get a breast augmentation any other way?

Yes, it can be done this way.  But there is a visible scar in your armpit, and in some circumstances, it may be a longer scar than if the surgery is done through a different approach.  Your PS can discuss your specific options when you go in for your consultation.  Best of luck!

The simple answer is YES so go on some complimentary consultations with experts who use this technique and see if you are a good candidate and look at photos of similar patients and find your surgeon
