The Advantages of TUBA Breast Augmentation

When you are considering breast augmentation, it is important to understand the many options you face.  From the location of the implants to the location of the incision, there are several factors to consider.  To help you make an educated decision that will best benefit your body, schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Frenzel at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery.

Dr. Frenzel is a dual fellowship trained surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation surgery.  After spending a year in a specialized cosmetic surgery fellowship to learn the aesthetics of breast surgery, which includes the transumbilical breast augmentation, he has perfected the art of breast augmentation and is one of a few cosmetic surgeons in the country that performs the TUBA breast augmentation.

TUBA is a common term for the transumbilical breast augmentation.  Other common names for this surgery include “scar-less” and “belly button” breast augmentation.  TUBA is an effective method of breast implant placement that produces attractive results and invisible scars.

An amazing advancement in technology, the TUBA breast augmentation provides patients with beautiful results.  Without scars that take away from the breasts, this procedure is effective and aesthetically appealing.

In your initial consultation, Dr. Frenzel will explain all of the risk factors and considerations while allowing time for you to voice any questions or concerns.  The TUBA breast augmentation begins when Dr. Frenzel makes a small incision in the belly button.  A tunnel is created through the fatty tissue of the abdomen toward the breasts.  Then, the implant is placed symmetrically behind the nipple, above or below the pectoral muscle.  During this procedure, a tiny fiber optic camera is used to ensure that the implants are properly positioned.

There are several options when it comes to a breast augmentation.  Other than the incision location, you have to consider whether to place the implants above or below the pectoral muscle.  You also must choose between silicone and saline implants.  In addition, you will determine which size and shape is best for your body.

With so many choices, the TUBA breast augmentation offers a number of advantages.  Very little breast tissue is disturbed by going in through the belly button.  Because the incision is far away from the implants, you have a decreased risk of infection.  And, of course, the scars are invisible.

Belly button breast augmentation offers several advantages.  Though some have criticized this method because there is no direct access to the breasts, the results achieved indicate incredible success.  Disadvantages to TUBA breast augmentation include the steep learning curve.  With Dr. Frenzel as your surgeon, you can rest assure that you are in god hands.  Through professional training, he has mastered this art and continues to see success in his patients.

By scheduling a consultation with Dr. Frenzel, you can further discuss all of the advantages and disadvantages to each of the options associated with breast augmentation.  Talk to a surgeon with experience and get all of your questions answered.  When you choose Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, you get answers when you need them.
