Transumbilical Breast Augmentation is an innovative Breast Enhancement surgical technique that requires the use of state-of-the-art fiber optic technology. The procedure involves the use of an endoscope, which is a type of surgical instrument, a long, narrow, lighted tube used to facilitate the insertion of breast implants through the belly button. Transumbilical breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient procedure, under sedation.
A small incision is made in the belly button. Through the incision, the breast implants are inserted. A small scar is hidden inside the belly button, leaving very little evidence of surgery. Benefits of this new procedure include:· faster recovery, very little tissue trauma, less risk of injury to the sensory nerves of the nipple and breast and shorter operative time (as little as 30 minutes compared with 1.5 to 2 hours for the standard technique).
The best candidates for breast augmentation are women who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look. If you’re physically healthy and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate. During your consultation, our Board Certified Doctors will discuss the various implants available including size, shape and type of implant either saline or gel implants. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon.
