Not everyone is fortunate to have their desired breast size. If you want to enlarge your breast, one of your options is bellybutton breast augmentation.
Transumbilical breast augmentation is just a fancy term for bellybutton breast augmentation. As the name suggests, the process involves inserting the breast implant through your belly button. The process is fast; getting a bigger breast only takes about 30 minutes. It is also minimally invasive and painful.
The surgeon will make an incision on the upper margin of your navel and dissect the tissues around your belly button. Afterward, they will insert a blunt tunneling device to make tunnels from the belly button incision to your breast. After creating the tunnels and pockets beneath your chest muscle, they will create pressure using a balloon expander with a tube.
Before placing the implants, your surgeon will irrigate the pockets with a sterile saline antibiotic solution to prevent any possible infection and allow the surgeon to handle the implant without directly touching it. Once the implants are in place, your surgeon will wrap your breast with a light elastic bandage covered with a sports bra.
Bellybutton breast augmentation offers many benefits, such as:
You can achieve the breasts of your dreams in just a few minutes. Of course, the entire process, including consultation and recovery, will take more time. But the procedure itself only takes half an hour or so.
In other breast augmentation methods, an incision is made underneath the breast or around the nipple. They result in visible scars. With T.U.B.A, the incision is made in the belly button. It will look like you have not had breast augmentation at all!
The T.U.B.A only requires a small incision in your belly button, creating a tunnel from there to the breast. Your breast won’t be cut open, a step necessary in other breast augmentation methods.
Some breast augmentation methods make an incision near the milk-producing parts of the breast, increasing the risk of nerve damage. With T.U.B.A, it is not a concern. As long as an experienced surgeon performs it, you will not have to worry about losing the nipple sensation.
During the bellybutton breast augmentation procedure, the surgeon irrigates the pocket with a saltwater antibiotic solution and practices a “No-Touch” technique. Hence, there is less likelihood of subclinical infections.
When you undergo T.U.B.A, you will be under local anesthesia with IV sedation, so you won’t feel pain. The surgeon will inject the anesthesia around and in your belly button and around the breast area, minimizing even the pain you’ll feel after the operation. Any post-operative discomfort can be relieved with pain medication.
With minimal scarring, fast results, and many other benefits, bellybutton breast augmentation can be an attractive option for enlarging your bust. But it is not for everyone. Talk with your doctor to find out if you are qualified for the procedure.
