One of the major concerns many patients have about breast augmentation surgery is scarring. Visible scar lines can draw unwanted attention to what should be a natural-looking procedure and compromise the aesthetic appeal of your breasts. To avoid scarring issues, many patients are now electing to undergo transumbilical breast augmentation, or TUBA surgery.
At the Weston Center's Miami-area practice, Dr. Jon Harrell can perform transumbilical breast augmentation surgery to give you excellent breast implant results with no risk of scarring. To set up a free consultation, call us at (954) 526-0066 .
How TransumbilicalBreast AugmentationSurgery Works
The major innovation with transumbilical breast augmentation is the incision location. Rather than making an incision on the underside of the breast, Dr. Harrell makes the incision near your navel. He then uses endoscopic assistance to move the implants from the incision into your chest. This results in natural-looking breast implants with no visible scarring.
Other advantages of TUBA breast implants include:
- Reduced recovery time
- Less pain after the operation
- Fewer possible complications during surgery
- Low chance of losing nipple sensitivity
- No post-operative bra or tapping
- Very low risk of capsular contracture
- Implants are easy to remove and exchange at a later date
Many patients who opt for breast augmentation opt to replace their implants with different versions after 10 years, so choosing a surgical procedure that makes replacement of implants easy is a smart choice. Transumbilical breast augmentation provides this, and is a great choice for saline breast implants.
Is TUBA Breast Surgery Right for You?
While you may be aware of the benefits to this procedure, you may not be sure it’s the right fit for your plastic surgery goals. While Dr. Harrell will walk through all the possible options during your breast surgery consultation, it’s a good idea to have some idea of what you want going in. If you are interested in TUBA surgery or another method, be sure to mention it.
Transumbilical surgery may be right for you if:
- You are considering saline breast implants
- You don’t have as much time to recover after your surgery
- You want to avoid visible scars around your breasts
- You have realistic expectations for the procedure
- You do not smoke, or are willing to stop
