If you’re considering undergoing breast augmentation surgery in New York City, you have many options. One of the newer and safer options for breast augmentation is transumbilical breast augmentation surgery. According to the journal, Seminars in Plastic Surgery, transumbilical breast augmentation, or TUBA surgery, is not only safe and effective, but it is now considered within the standard of care for breast augmentation procedures. Because the procedure is performed through an incision inside the belly-button, larger implants can be used without the risk of wound incision on the breast falling apart from too much tension. Patients who undergo TUBA also report experiencing less pain and infection. Your plastic surgeon inflates the implant to the ideal size, more easily without having to perform another surgery.
One of the reasons why TUBA isn’t performed more frequently is that performing TUBA properly requires specialized training and equipment. Not all plastic surgeons have the ability or the training to perform the procedure.
Dr. Leonard Grossman, M.D. is a plastic surgeon in New York City with the training and ability to perform the TUBA procedure. Of course, transumbilical breast augmentation is right for everyone who desires breast augmentation and especially so if they are not a candidate for another approach. It is important to consult with your doctor before you decide on a particular type of breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Grossman takes the time to assess each patient’s aesthetic goals and needs before selecting a course of action.
According to Plastic Surgery Trends, for candidates who can have the procedure, TUBA technique is usually faster and safer than other breast augmentation methods, except maybe augmentation with fat grafting. Over 3,000 procedures were reviewed by researchers to determine risk and patient satisfaction. One doctor noted that TUBA surgery was “as safe as breast augmentation can get.” Of all the patients reviewed in the data sample, there was only one report of infection.
Having a qualified surgeon perform the procedure is incredibly important. Proper size selection and implant location makes a big difference in the final look that is achieved. Dr. Leonard Grossman, M.D. has performed over 6,000 transumbilical breast augmentation procedures in NYC without a single case of infection. He artfully helps patients find a size that works for their needs and goals and also skillfully places the implants under the muscles to achieve full, symmetrical results.
While TUBA procedures have low rates of complications, patients who undergo any kind of breast augmentation should be in good health and have realistic goals and expectations for what the procedure can achieve. Individuals who are unhappy about their breast size, symmetry, or who have lost breast volume after pregnancy are good candidates for TUBA.
TUBA surgery also has the added benefit of leaving no scars near the breast, resulting in a flawless and natural look. Patients enjoy the results of a breast augmentation with none of the evidence of surgery near the breast. Patients can also go as large as desired in size due to the nature of the surgery.
