We are pleased to announce that Dr. Strock’s recent article “Transaxillary Endoscopic Silicone Gel Breast Augmentation” has been published in Aesthetic Surgery Journal, an indexed, peer-reviewed journal that is the journal of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The article outlines his latest refinements for placement of silicone gel breast implants using an armpit incision (transaxillary approach), with the aid of an endoscope that allows for precise creation of the tissue pocket for the breast implant. He has routinely offered this approach in his patients seeking breast augmentation using saline breast implants dating back to 1996, and has modified the technique for routine use in the placement of silicone gel implants since 2006, when the United States Food and Drug Administration allowed silicone gel breast implants to be used for augmentation . This approach using an armpit incision allows his patients the option of having breast implants placed with no incisions on the breast. Dr. Strock has been a leading educator on this subject for many years, and has taught numerous instructional courses and presented his work at national meetings and educational symposia sponsored by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
