Videoendoscopy for breast hypoplasia and glabelar frownlines has been used since 1996 in our private clinic. Breast augmentation with "S" shape incision for transaxillary acessis utilized to introduce the implant, in a submuscular or subglandular, and recently (since october 1998) in a subfascial location. From August 1998 through January 1999, 62 patients underwent endoscopics surgeries, forty nine were submuscular, five subglandular and eight subfascial. McGhan® 410, anatomical biodimentional, 155 grams through 235 grams were used. We observed three cases of complications, two of them malpositioning (rotation) needing reoperation and 1 hematoma treated with drainage. Patient satisfaction was high, especially regarding the axillary incision. There have been no capsular contractions to date.
