Trans-Abdominal Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck
After losing a great deal of weight or following pregnancy, a tummy tuck may be necessary to tighten the abdominal wall muscles, remove excess skin and contour the body for improved smoothness and aesthetic appeal. A tummy tuck can return a certain youthfulness to the abdominal region of someone who has lost excessive weight or endured pregnancy. This plastic surgery procedure can also remove or reduce stretch marks in the region of the lower abdomen and waist and can even correct the mons (pubic) laxity that develops with natural birth.
Most candidates of tummy tuck undergo this procedure to remove excess abdominal skin and tissue and to improve their abdominal contour. Because those physical changes tend to wreak havoc on the body, tummy tuck is a permanent, surgical fix for what diet and exercise cannot improve.
Along with negative changes to the abdomen during weight loss and pregnancy, there are changes that affect the breasts. Following pregnancy, nursing or weight loss, breasts may appear deflated. They often gain an appearance of hanging loosely and flat against the chest, having lost volume and skin tightness, as the rest of the body did. Unfortunately, these breast changes cannot be alleviated through diet and exercise, either. Breast tissue is largely unaffected by such measures of fitness and the best approach for permanent rejuvenation and youthful appeal of the breasts is through breast enhancement for the lost volume by breast augmentation.
How Is Trans-Abdominal Breast Augmentation Performed During Tummy Tuck?
For women undergoing tummy tuck, trans-abdominal breast augmentation is a very effective means of placing breast implants without creating any breast incisions. In fact, trans-abdominal breast augmentation during tummy tuck ensures that there will be no scars on the breasts at all. The results are incredibly natural and appealing, as the breasts do not appear to have been surgically altered due to absence of scars.
Either silicone or saline breast implants may be used as part of trans-abdominal breast augmentation during tummy tuck. Which ones are preferred and most suitable for your body will be determined in your initial consultation with Dr. Siamak Agha, the board certified plastic surgeon of Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center in Orange County and Los Angeles.
For implant placement, Dr. Agha will utilize the tummy tuck incision. Dr. Agha’s training in trans-umbilical breast augmentation, enables him to place the breast implants sub-glandularly (over the muscle) or sub-muscularly (under the muscle) depending on the patient’s needs and desires. This technique is superior to any other breast augmentation approaches since there are no incisions on the breasts. No one needs to know that you have enhanced your breasts but you.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation During Tummy Tuck?
Trans-abdominal breast augmentation during tummy tuck is best suited for women who are having a tummy tuck and need added volume to their breasts, but do not have excessive drooping requiring a breast lift. If only an implant is necessary to restore youthful appearance to the breasts, then a trans-abdominal breast augmentation during tummy tuck will provide excellent results.
