Join Nakita and her first hand experience and she has a breast augmentation surgery using the Trans-umbilical approach. Nakita was interview before and after her procedure to provide the complete story of her procedure.
TUBA is a scarless operation in the sense that there are no visible scars. The scar is hidden within the umbilicus (navel or belly button) and heals quite nicely and seldom with keloid formation. However, you may be asked to choose a secondary incision placement just in case there are problems during the surgery. TUBA, or Trans-umbilical Breast Augmentation, is a breast implant placement technique that produces excellent result with minimal scarring. This procedure is also sometimes referred to as "belly button" breast augmentation.
During your consultation Dr. David Kim will discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure and what your desired outcome would be. We will discuss many topics such as desired size, shape, implant type and incision site. You may also be asked about medical conditions, drug allergies, current medication use, previous surgeries, family history of breast cancer and results of any mammograms or previous biopsies. Dr. Kim will discuss what procedure will most likely get your desired result and will show photos representing these procedures.
