Hi, I’m Larry Schlesinger and I’m a board-certified plastic surgeon from Honolulu, Hawaii. Very often, people ask why I put my implants in through the armpit. First of all, very honestly, you have to go underneath the pectoralis muscle which almost everyone does. When I go through the armpit, I’m grabbing right now my pectoralis muscle’s on top so you’re under the pectoralis muscle the minute you make the incision in the armpit. Secondly, no one, not even your mother has ever intentionally looked in your armpits. And thirdly, it’s very thin skin and the thinner the skin the finer the scar. So, as far as I’m concerned, armpits are the only way to go for a PRIMARY breast aug. I’m Larry Schlesinger, thank you very much.
