Transumbilical Breast Augmentation Houston, Houston Transumbilical Breast Augmentation by Dr. Berzin.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation can enhance your appearance, improve your self-confidence, and broaden your ability to wear different clothing fashions by changing the shape and size of your breasts to better match your body style. Also, breast augmentation is used to rebalance a voluptuous figure, correct lost volume resulting from age or pregnancies, and balance assymetrical breasts.

 The incision can be made in the crease where the breast meets the chest (inframammary), around the areola (periareolar), or in the belly button (scarless breast augmentation). Working through the incision, your breast tissue and skin will be lifted to create a pocket, either directly behind the breast tissue (subglandular) or underneath your chest wall muscle (subpectoral) and the implants are then centered beneath your nipples. There are a variety of implant types, textures, and shapes available, and the choice is made based on the look you desire.

Scarless Breast Augmentation

One of the latest advancements in breast augmentation is the technique of transumbilical breast augmentation. The technique of scarless breast augmentation is very similar in principal to conventional breast augmentation (please refer to breast augmentation section) except that there are no scars on the breast. 

The incision is in the belly button, and through this incision, a small camera (endoscope) is used to create tunnels to the breast areas, the pockets are created, and the implants are maneuvered through the belly button into place beneath your nipples. Like with conventional breast augmentation, various types and shapes of implants are available and they can be placed either on top of or below the muscle, based on your desired look.

Breast Reduction

Large, pendulous breasts may cause a woman to potentially experience various medical problems caused by the excessive weight of the breast tissue.  Problems with posture, skeletal deformities, back and neck pain, skin irritations and nerve irritations of the fingers are common with this condition.  Bra straps often leave indentations in the shoulder area.  Many women, especially teenage girls, are very self-conscious if they have unusually large breasts.  With breast reduction surgery, women of all ages are able to have breasts that are better shaped and in proportion. 

Breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) removes fat, glandular tissue, and excessive skin, resulting in smaller, lighter and firmer breasts that are better-shaped in proportion to rest of the body.

Breast Lift

A breast lift can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence by raising and reshaping saggy misshapen breasts.  Factors such as aging, pregnancy, nursing, and the force of gravity all stretch the skin and supportive ligaments of the breasts, and as a result, the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts lose their shape and firmness, and begin to sag. 

By removing excess skin and tightening supportive structures, perkier, shapelier breasts with the appropriate sized areola and the nipples in its proper position can be recreated. If your breasts are small or have lost volume, such as after pregnancy, breast implants can be inserted through the same incisions and at the same time as the breast lift is performed to increase both firmness and size of the breasts.

If you have implants along with the breast lift, you may find the results last longer. Also, with less severe sagging, incisions can be limited to just around the areola (doughnut, concentric, or periareolar mastopexy) and are less noticeable than the conventional incisions.
