What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation places implants into the breasts to improve their size, shape, or symmetry. This popular procedure uses either saline or silicone implants, which come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and textures to give you the look and feel you want. Some procedures, such as trans-umbilical breast augmentation (TUBA), will require a saline implant. Breast implants can enhance breast fullness, projection, and shape. Patients with noticeable sagging or loose skin may also need a breast lift to give them a desirable shape and position.
How Does Scar Less Breast Augmentation Work?
Dr. Vitolo will perform this procedure in his AAAASF-certified surgical facility with the aid of a board-certified anesthesiologist and a team of registered nurses and technicians. He will use the TUBA technique to provide a truly Scar Less breast augmentation. Through a small incision inside the belly button, Dr. Vitolo creates channels safely within the fat layer of the abdomen, then creates space under the breast tissue or under the muscle where the empty implant will be placed and filled with a saline solution (salt water) from outside the body.
How To Sleep After Breast Augmentation Surgery
You may need to sleep on your back after your augmentation surgery to make sure you do not shift your implants or put too much pressure on them. Dr. Vitolo will recommend how long you should sleep this way based on your individual procedure and healing process. While some surgeons will require patients to sleep sitting upright for several days, the Scar Less surgery minimizes trauma and recovery time, so no long term sleeping restrictions are necessary.
