Cosmetic Surgery Gets Innovative with Scarless Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure used to enhance the breast size and shape. There are many reasons women choose to have breast augmentation. Most commonly, women are looking to improve their body contour, or to enhance their natural curves.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2012, 286,274 women had breast augmentation, making it the most performed cosmetic procedure. Although breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, many women are unaware that scarless breast augmentation exists.
With the opportunity to achieve your desired appearance, it’s important to explore all options. One particular option is evidence of the innovative direction plastic surgery has taken. Transumbilical breast augmentation avoids scarring on the breasts by inserting the implants through a tiny incision in the belly button. A tube is inserted through the belly button, where the implants are then introduced.
The obvious advantage to scarless breast augmentation is the minimal scarring. Since the scar is deep within the belly button, it goes completely unnoticed. Without a noticeable scar, no one will have to know that you had breast augmentation done. Your new breasts will look completely natural and untouched from surgery.
In addition, the risk of infection is decreased because the implant expands once in the breast and eliminates any dead space, making infection growth difficult.
Over the years, breast augmentation has certainly evolved. There are several options for women looking to enlarge their breasts, which is why it’s important to choose an option that is best suited for your body and is consistent with your overall goals.
