Women elect to have breast enlargement surgeries for many reasons – fuller, more symmetrical breasts, shirts that fit better, increased self-confidence, and more. Dr. Patrick Obasi of Noble Cosmetic Surgery offers different techniques as well as implant styles and materials, giving women in Plano, TX options to suit their goals.
Traditional implant surgeries are performed with incisions in the armpit, under the breast or around the nipple. A trans-umbilical breast augmentation (TUBA) uses an approximately 2cm incision made at the navel. A pocket is created under the skin and muscle. Empty saline implants are inserted and implanted in the breast cavity where they can be filled. The entire procedure is done under anesthesia and takes less than an hour.
This revolutionary procedure allows women to get the look they desire without the downtime or the scarring associated with traditional implant surgeries. There are benefits of a TUBA procedure:
- No scarring is located near the breast. Because the incision is only 2cm and is at the navel, any scarring that occurs is minimal.
- There is less chance of losing sensation in the nipple.
- Patients have less discomfort, more ability to move their arms and generally can return to their normal activity quickly.
As with any procedure there are disadvantages as well. With an incision at the belly button, only saline implants can be used. Silicone implants are pre-filled and cannot be compressed to be inserted into such a small opening. Only the initial procedure can performed at the navel. If a future surgery is needed for any reason, a traditional incision is required.
