TUBA Breast Augmentation in San Antonio, Texas
At her San Antonio practice, Dr. Constance M. Barone can perform breast augmentation by placing breast implants through an incision at the belly button and then inflating them. Using this approach, known as trans-umbilical breast augmentation, patients experience minimal scarring and very little post-operative discomfort.View transcript
Transumbilical breast augmentation. That is one of the new exciting advances in breast augmentation surgery. We are able to get the implant either on top of the muscle or underneath the muscle with the aid of an endoscope. The incision is virtually invisible. It is underneath the hood of the belly button so it is approximately a cm in length. Another clear advantage of the TUBA or the transumbilical breast augmentation is that you can combine it with other techniques such as the mommy makeover, where we combine the abdominoplasty, muscle tightening, and the breast augmentation all in one surgery. You do no have any scars at all on your breasts or the peribreast region and the implants are able to be put underneath the muscle via the umbilicus and at the same time you are able to have your tummy tuck. That is a complete mommy makeover.
