TUBA Breast Augmentation Philadelphia & Doylestown PA

TUBA breast augmentation uses surgical incisions hidden in the navel for the placement of saline breast implants. You might hear people refer to this procedure as transumbilical breast augmentation, scarless breast augmentation, or even belly button breast augmentation. This is an advanced procedure that should only be performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon.

Who is a good candidate for TUBA Breast Augmentation?

As with traditional breast augmentation, this surgery is performed for women who are dissatisfied with a small or disproportional breast size. If you are capable of understanding the risks and benefits of this method, and you have a strong desire for your breast augmentation scars to be concealed, then the TUBA breast augmentation procedure in in Philadelphia & Doylestown, PA may be right for you.

Who is not a good candidate for the TUBA Procedure?

If you have undergone extensive abdominal operations, have a chest or rib cage deformity, or tuberous breast anatomy, then Dr. Rosen may recommend a different breast cosmetic surgery procedure or advise you to forego breast augmentation.

How Transumbilical Breast Augmentation is Performed

The Consultation: First you will discuss with Dr. Rosen your medical history and goals regarding breast augmentation. He can answer your questions about alternative breast implant placement methods, breast implant sizes, breast implant types, and other related topics.

The procedure begins with pre-op photos and markings on the body. General anesthesia is administered, so you will be asleep during the operation. Dr. Rosen plans the implant placement through the belly button and performs undermining and dissection around the navel. A specialized instrument called an endoscope is used to provide a view of your underlying tissues as the skin and fat is separated from the muscle, creating a tunnel from the navel toward the breasts. A tissue expander is used to aid in the placement of saline breast implants, which are filled to a specified volume once they are within the breast pocket. The incisions are then closed with sutures.

After TUBA Breast Augmentation: What to Expect

You will be sent home with a special bra designed to provide support during recovery. Total recovery time with breast augmentation in in Philadelphia & Doylestown, PA is about 1-2 weeks, but you should be walking around in 24 hours. Sutures are removed in ten days. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rosen can prescribe a medication to manage pain during this time. After breast augmentation, regular examinations are recommended to ensure the integrity of your implants.

One of the drawbacks often mentioned about the transumbilical method is its remote technique. If you experience a complication during or after your breast augmentation, it is likely that a traditional incision would need to be used to gain access to the breast implant.

Possible Complications with the TUBA Breast Augmentation Method

The rate of complications with transumbilical breast augmentation is comparable to traditional breast augmentation. Possible adverse events include but are not limited to hematoma, umbilical infection, breast implant deflation, tunnel seromas, noticeable breast asymmetry and capsular contracture.
