For patients who desire breast augmentation of more than 1.5 cup sizes and have no extra fat, either the saline or silicone implant is recommended. Saline is likely to be the preferred option as the risks of capsular contractures are much lower.
TUBA (Trans-Umbilical Breast Augmentation) uses and tiny 1 cm incision in the depth of the belly button to place a saline filled implant under the muscle on the chest wall, resulting i a very natural outcome with a much easier recovery. Dr Grossman is on of the hand-full of plastic surgeons in the world who has been performing this type of breast augmentation since 1996. With TUBA surgery patients can have any size of breast implants.
Both of these types of implants require incisions. Silicone implants will require an additional cost for an MRI scan every 3 years to test for any rupture or issues, as this cannot be identified by touch alone.
