Breast Augmentation – Implants
For those seeking larger breasts with implants, Dr. Rogers offers a large variety of choices for his patients, including saline and silicone implants, as well as trans-umbilical breast augmentation (TUBA).
Saline implants are the least expensive and typically entail the smallest incision since the implant is filled after insertion and is the only option should a patient desire insertion through the navel area for a scar-free result. Saline, or sterile salt water, is used to fill the implants.
Silicone filled implants offer an organic feel and are generally less likely to ripple than saline filled implants. All implants used since November 2006 are made of cohesive silicone gel as opposed to the liquid silicone previously used. The benefit of cohesive gel is that should rupture occur, the gel will not run.
Trans-Umbilical (TUBA) Method
Trans-Umbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA) is a scar-less or belly button breast augmentation method for increasing the breast size by inserting breast implants through the umbilicus, navel or belly button. This method offers minimal scarring and will often require less recovery time.
Dr. Rogers will consult with each patient to discuss their desired outcome to determine which procedure is most appropriate.
