Confession of an Armpit

Although never confirmed by the Burlesque star it has always been assumed that Christina Aguilera had her breasts augmented early on in her career. Even back in the day when she was 90 pounds soaking wet, singing about a genie in a bottle, there were signs that mother nature did not deserve all the credit for her cute little body. Only now though has it been revealed (physically not verbally) that she elected for the transaxillary approach as the incision for her breast augmentation. As you can see from the above photo, taken by the British press at a Tokyo event for her new movie, the starlet is clearly displaying a telltale sign of implant entry. Scarless breast augmentation is not an option and the incision/scar has to be placed somewhere. This is often a bigger decision for breast augmentation patients than the size of the implant. The three options patients have to choose from are under the breast, around the nipple, and through the armpit (no I did not leave out the belly button, sorry to disappoint ladies but that approach is a one way ticket to complicationville). Often times the decision is made by one's anatomy and where on that particular individual the scar will be the most inconspicuous. A common misconception is that a scar not on the breast itself will prove to the world that "they" are real, however the incision on the axilla can be a dead giveaway because of its distinct location and length. Scar formation varies from person to person and a raised or pigmented scar on the armpit can make wearing sleeveless outfits a challenge. The slightest arm raise can become an advertisement for your plastic surgeon. This is something that should be taken into consideration when making the decision of where to have the incision for a breast augmentation. So Christina may have made an accidental confession about her surgical past but she is beautiful, no matter what they say ;)
