There are a few different ways to perform the plastic surgery procedure of breast augmentation. Plastic Surgeon Dr. Lawrence Shaw prefers to use the transaxillary approach. In this plastic surgery procedure, the breast implant is inserted under the muscle, through a small incision. The upper part of the breast implant will be under the muscle and the lower part is over it. This will give a more natural look and shape.
