Discover the Benefits of Transumbilical Breast Augmentation

Transumbilical Breast Augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves the insertion of breast implants through an incision at the navel. Unlike traditional methods, TUBA offers a singular incision point, which results in fewer visible scars. This technique not only appeals to those who are concerned about the aesthetic outcome but also to those who are looking for a quicker recovery time.

The Procedure: A Step-by-Step Overview

  1. Consultation and Planning: Prior to the surgery, a detailed consultation is conducted to understand the patient’s desired outcome and to choose the appropriate implant type and size.

  2. The Incision: A small incision is made at the rim of the navel.

  3. Creating the Pathway: A tunnel is carefully created under the skin, extending from the navel to the breast area.

  4. Inserting the Implant: The implants, typically in a deflated state, are inserted through this pathway and positioned behind the breast tissue or under the chest muscle.

  5. Inflating the Implant: Once in place, saline implants are filled to the desired volume.

  6. Closing the Incision: The incision at the navel is closed, leaving a scar that is easily concealed within the natural contours of the belly button.

Advantages of TUBA Over Traditional Methods

  • Minimized Scarring: The most notable advantage of TUBA is the reduced visibility of scars, as the incision is hidden in the navel.

  • Reduced Recovery Time: Patients often report a faster recovery period due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure.

  • Less Trauma to Breast Tissue: As the implants are inserted remotely, there is less disturbance to the breast tissue.

  • Less risk of sensation loss: TUBA is associated with a reduced risk of sensation loss compared to traditional approaches.

  • Less risk of infection: The technique is reported to have a lower risk of infection.

Considerations and Precautions

While Trans-umbilical Breast Augmentation presents many advantages, it is not suitable for everyone. Candidates must be carefully evaluated based on their anatomy and desired results. Additionally, as with any surgery, there are risks involved, and these should be thoroughly discussed with a qualified plastic surgeon.

Patient Experiences and Outcomes

Patients who have undergone TUBA often express high satisfaction with the results. The concealment of scars and the natural-looking enhancement are commonly cited benefits. However, individual experiences can vary, and realistic expectations should be set during the consultation process.


Trans Umbilical Breast Augmentation offers a compelling alternative for breast enhancement with its unique approach to minimizing scarring and reducing recovery time. As with any cosmetic procedure, thorough consultation and consideration of individual circumstances are crucial. Those interested in exploring this option should seek advice from a certified plastic surgeon who specializes in TUBA.
