|Transaxillary Endoscopic Breast Augmentation-
Breast Augmentation with NO scars on your breast?
In the age of modern technology and innovative development, a technique is now available to allow women to increase their breast size without ANY scars on their breasts. This innovation involves placing the implants through the axilla (armpit) with the assistance of a small camera called an endoscope.
Dr. David Rankin is one of the only physicians in South Florida that offers this state of the art technique and prefers it over traditional methods of breast augmentation due to the lack of scarring. Dr. Rankin says, “With the use of an endoscope, I can offer my patients the same or better outcome as traditional breast augmentation with NO scars on their breasts”. The scars that are placed in the armpit are usually unnoticeable by about one year after surgery.
This surgery procedure, called Transaxillary Endoscopic Breast Augmentation (TEBA) is the preferred method used by Dr. Rankin for placement of either Saline or Silicone breast implants. Silicone implants were re-introduced back to the consumer market in November of 2006 after some modifications were made in the consistency of the silicone used to fill the implant. Dr. Rankin says that, “Modern Silicone implants are now a Gummy Bear consistency and most of my patients with these implants say that they feel like their natural breasts”.
Dr. Rankin performs surgery in his private state of the art surgical suite in Jupiter Florida. The facility is accredited by AAAASF and the state of Florida and offers patients privacy and comfort that cannot be achieved in a hospital setting. Dr. Rankin is Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and is on staff at seven local hospitals.
Dr. Rankin does perform traditional methods of breast augmentation as well including incision placement around the nipple or under the breast. However, for those women who are concerned about scarring their breast, he regularly uses TEBA. Says Dr. Rankin, “Implant placement is very precise with this method as the camera is used to locate the exact anatomy in each patient. So, why would you choose to have an incision on your breast when you can have the same result without the scars?”.
