Three Perks To Transumbilical Breast Augmentation

If you've heard about transumbilical breast augmentation, the type of breast augmentation that goes in from the navel instead of the armpit or breast tissue itself, you might be wondering which kind is better for you. If you're trying to decide, take a look at these three perks of transumbilical breast augmentation.

Remote Scarring

As indicated, transumbilical breast augmentation doesn't go in anywhere near the breast itself. Instead, the incision is made inside the navel and a deflated breast implant is guided up to the breast and then inflated.

The benefit of this is that any scarring that you have is nowhere near the breast itself, which can lead to women feeling more confident while wearing bathing suits or lingerie. Any scarring that you do have will be on the navel, which naturally has wrinkles and lines on it, so the scar will blend in and won't be noticeable to others.

Less Pain

Cutting open the breast or armpit does cause a fair amount of pain for women as they're trying to bounce back from the procedure. To make matters worse, movement of the arms and upper torso can increase this pain, but you need to make these movements in order to minimize scar tissue and to maintain the results.

Since transumbilical breast augmentation uses a tiny incision, it hurts far less than traditional breast augmentation does. You're likely to feel a little soreness in your belly and your breast tissue may feel a little sore from being stretched, but that's about it.

Shorter Recovery Time

Most women bounce back from transumbilical breast implants faster than they do from traditional ones. Again, this is because way less trauma happens to the body during this procedure. As a result, you'll be able to get back to work more quickly or to whatever your daily life has waiting for you.

As an added perk, transumbilical breast implants are always saline. While incredibly rare, if you the breast implants ever leak or burst, you won't need to be worried about toxic chemicals getting into your body. While the implant will still need to be removed and replaced if you so choose, the saline inside of it will simply be absorbed by the body as water and won't hurt you at all.

Transumbilical breast implants are the way of the future, so what are you waiting for? Make the decision and call a cosmetic surgeon.
