Belly Button Breast Surgery
The belly button breast surgery procedure is known as TUBA (Trans Umbilical Breast Augmentation), and provides insertion of breast implants through the belly button. This surgery is performed on an outpatient basis using general or local anaesthesia.
Breast augmentation, technically known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast for a number of reasons, such as creating a balance a difference in breast size, correcting a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss, enhancing the body contour of a woman who feels her breast size is too small or enlarging and helping to lift a breast that is excessively relaxed.
Many women now choose to have the belly button breast surgery. This is where the implants are inserted through a small incision at the navel. This method means less time under anaesthesia, less discomfort, less chance of losing sense of touch in the nipples, and no scars around the breast. It’s pretty obvious why it is so popular!
A small incision is made inside the rim of the navel and then using an endoscope, the salt-water (saline) implant is inserted through a narrow tunnel under the skin, into the loose tissue behind the breast. The result of this surgery looks the same as after the older methods, but without the tell-tale scar on the breast. Also, very large implants can be used without the fear of the incision pulling open as there is no breast incision. And to top off the convenience, because the implant is not touched by any instruments during insertion, the manufacturer’s lifetime replacement warranty applies!
Strangely the belly button breast surgery technique has been around since 1991, but is still not very well known. It requires special equipment and training. Then of course, not all women are suitable candidates for this method – although most are. If you are looking into it make sure you have discussed it thoroughly with your surgeon, as well as received information from elsewhere. One should always be aware not only of the advantages but also the disadvantages and any complications which may take place.
