Transumbilical Breast Augmentation, commonly referred to as T.U.B.A., scarless or belly button breast augmentation, is the surgical procedure designed to increase the breast size by implanting breast implants through your belly button, umbilicus, or navel. This surgery creates a larger breast without visible scars on the breasts or in the armpit.
Unfortunately, this surgery has created a lot of controversy in the past mostly by those who do not feel comfortable to perform it.
Transumbilical Breast Augmentation is effective at delivering the beautiful results to the patients with no incisions on the breasts. However, if you need a mastopexy (breast lift) it is easier to have breast implants placed through mastopexy scars.
If you desire larger breasts and do not want or need a lift and are in great physical condition (no active diseases, disorders or mental instabilities) with excellent skin elasticity–T.U.B.A. just may be the procedure for you.
