Transumbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA)
Endoscopic, Quicker Recovery Breast Enhancement Procedure
Transumbilical Breast Augmentation, or TUBA, is an advanced endoscopic technique to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. TUBA breast augmentation leaves a scar at the rim of the navel that is virtually undetectable and no scars in the breast area. The procedure is less invasive and requires less recovery time than other breast augmentation methods.
Innovations in endoscopic surgery have led to a number of new plastic surgery techniques in recent years. During the Transumbilical Breast Augmentation procedure, an endoscope is used to create a tunnel from a small incision at the perimeter of the belly button to each breast. The breast implants are inserted through the tunnel, placed behind the breast tissues and filled with saline solution to expand the feminine contour. Most patients with the talented plastic surgeons at Hedden Plastic Surgery experience only minor discomfort and can quickly resume normal activities.
