Endoscopic Breast Augmentation in Sarasota with Dr. Kristopher Hamwi
Traditional breast augmentation has helped many women achieve their desired figures by enhancing their feminine curves. Newer technologies have introduced endoscopic breast augmentation that can provide the same natural-looking, long-lasting results with a shorter, less painful recovery period with the bonus of no incisions or scarring on the breasts.
When it comes to breast augmentation, you deserve a surgeon with unparalleled expertise who understands your needs and delivers high-quality results. With over 10 years of unrivaled experience and a sincere desire to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals, Dr. Kristopher Hamwi is one of the only providers in Sarasota, FL trained to perform endoscopic breast augmentation.
What Can Endoscopic Breast Augmentation Accomplish?
Endoscopic breast augmentation is a breast enlargement method that allows for breast implants to be placed without creating incisions on the breast. Instead, the surgeon makes a small incision in the top of the armpit.
By utilizing an endoscopic camera, Dr. Hamwi has optimal visualization of all steps of the procedure. Dr. Hamwi will first create an internal tissue pocket to hold the implant and then insert saline or silicone gel implants.
While recovery from endoscopic breast augmentation is like that of other breast augmentation approaches, the incision discomfort is associated with the armpit rather than the breast. Endoscopic breast augmentation is also typically less painful. Most patients experience pain for a minimal number of days and return to work in 2-3 days.
During your consultation, Dr. Hamwi will determine whether you are an appropriate candidate. As one of the only providers in Sarasota, FL trained to perform endoscopic breast augmentation, Dr. Hamwi knows that without incisions and subsequent scarring on the breasts, endoscopic breast augmentation has made breast implant placement more natural looking.
Am I a Candidate for Endoscopic Breast Augmentation?
Good candidates for endoscopic breast augmentation include healthy patients who are looking to enhance the appearance of their breasts without leaving a scar directly on the breast or in the breast fold.
Dr. Hamwi suggests that endoscopic breast augmentation candidates should:
- Be non-smokers
- Be physically healthy and at a stable weight
- Understand the risks of the procedure
- Have a positive outlook and realistic goals
- Be prepared to closely follow pre- and post-operative instructions
