“Scarless” Trans-Umbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA)

Posted by drbg on September 14, 2007

I am happy now to be offering trans-umbilical breast augmentation (TUBA) to appropriate patients. With an intra-umbilical incision, saline implants can be tunneled under the skin to the breasts where they can be positioned in a submuscular pocket. This will produce exactly the same result as an incision at or on the breast, but the scar is virtually invisible within the umbilicus. This technique can also be used to insert breast implants through the abdominal incision during an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). TUBA cannot be used with silicone implants because these implants are pre-filled with a thick gel, require larger incisions for insertion, and cannot be placed through thin tunnels.

For more information please feel free to call my office at 215-572-7744 or email us.  My web site, www.drgenter.com has lots of information.
