Breast augmentation surgery has come a long way since its inception. However, the biggest hurdle many women face is the fear of visible scarring. This fear often deters them from enjoying the benefits of breast augmentation. Thanks to advancements in technology and surgical procedures, we now have scarless approaches like endoscopic breast augmentation that eliminate the problem of visible scarring. Dr. Goretti Taghva is here to guide you through this revolutionary approach to breast augmentation.
The Fear of Scars in Traditional Breast Augmentation
Visible scars have always been a concern when it comes to cosmetic procedures. Whether it’s a breast lift, breast implant removal surgery, or any form of breast augmentation, the risk of noticeable scars often causes hesitation. Even a skilled cosmetic surgeon can only minimize, not eliminate, scarring in traditional breast augmentation procedures.
- Psychological Impact: Scars often lead to lower self-esteem and reduced confidence.
- Testimonials: Many women who underwent breast implant revision or breast lift surgery later regretted the noticeable scars left behind.
What is Endoscopic Breast Augmentation Surgery?
The Technology Behind It
Endoscopic breast augmentation employs specialized cameras and equipment to make incisions as inconspicuous as possible. Unlike traditional breast augmentation techniques, which often result in an incision scar, this approach uses transaxillary incisions located in the armpit or a transumbilical incision through the belly button.
How It Differs from Traditional Methods
Unlike traditional methods that often require larger incisions to place silicone implants or saline implants, endoscopic techniques use a Keller funnel to insert the breast implants. This results in minimal scarring and reduces the risk of complications such as capsular contracture.
Benefits of Scarless Breast Augmentation
Endoscopic breast augmentation offers numerous advantages over traditional methods:
- Aesthetic Appeal: No visible scar on the actual breast.
- Faster Recovery Time: Smaller incisions mean quicker healing.
- Reduced Risk of Complications: Lower chances of capsular contracture and loss of sensation in the breast tissue.
Why Endoscopic Augmentation is a Good Option
Endoscopic augmentation provides a more holistic approach to breast augmentation, especially for women who fear scars. During the breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Goretti Taghva, a board-certified plastic surgeon, you will be taken through all the steps involved. From the initial meeting to breast implant revision surgery, if needed, you are in safe hands.

A small incision is made either in the armpit (transaxillary breast augmentation) or the belly button. A Keller funnel is then used to place the silicone gel implants or saline implants into the breast pocket.
Postoperative care is essential for any surgical procedure, especially breast implant revision surgery or breast reduction surgery. A proper care regimen will ensure faster recovery and lower the risk of complications.
