Since its adoption by plastic surgeons over two decades ago, Transumbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA) has received numerous accolades, primarily due to its effectiveness. The National Center for Biotechnology Information also hails the procedure, terming it safe and effective. But what are some of the factors setting the TUBA procedure apart from the competition? And what benefits do you derive from opting for transumbilical breast augmentation as opposed to other procedures?
1. Fast Recovery Time with No Scars
Unlike most other breast augmentation procedures, TUBA provides for faster recovery period and doesn’t cause scars or lacerations on the breast. The scars from the procedure will be located on the belly button, which some patients consider a major plus. You should be able to get back to work and your physical exercises in a few days after the operation, unless Dr. Jeffrey Hartog recommends otherwise.
2. Reduced Cases of Complications
Traditional breast procedures deposit the implants as close to the incision as possible. TUBA, on the other hand, maintains a distance between the position of the incision and the location of the implants. This helps minimize the risk of infections and is possibly one of the primary reasons government researchers consider TUBA one of the safest breast augmentation procedures.
3. No Postoperative Wound Care
When subjected to traditional breast augmentation procedures, the patient is expected to have follow-up sessions with their preferred specialist. Such meetings are dedicated to attending to the wounds caused by the incisions as a way of minimizing the risk of contracting bacterial infections. However, such postoperative follow up sessions are foreign to TUBA technique patients.
4. Allows for Future Procedures
What happens when your opinion of the augmentation procedure changes a few months or years after the first operation? While some traditional augmentation processes make future procedures impossible and possibly dangerous, the TUBA technique allows for numerous other future breast operations without worrying about safety or overly scarred breasts.
5. Reduced Tissue Stress
When traditional augmentation practitioners don’t make incisions on the breast, they tend to hide them under the armpit. Either case increases tension on a number of tissues around the incision point and the breast. This often results in prolonged pains, especially in the case of trans-axillary armpit incisions. You, however, don’t have to worry about stressed tissues with after a TUBA procedure given that the incisions here are placed within the navel.
