At his Dallas cosmetic surgery practice, Dr. Clayton Frenzel was recently featured on the CW33 News sharing the secret of a no-scar breast augmentation, otherwise known as trans-umbilical breast augmentation or TUBA.
TUBA, often called the “scarless” or even “belly button” breast augmentation, is an effective method of breast implant placement that’s introduced through the navel, and produces attractive results with scars that are literally invisible.
Forest Park Medical Center surgeon Dr. Clayton Frenzel uses an endoscope to guide the empty saline implants through two tunnels into the chest–when in place the implants are filled with sterile saline to the size and shape the patient wants.
Implanting around the breast or through the armpit can leave visible scars.
Dr. Frenzel said he used to perform the TUBA procedure as many as twenty times a month in California and now it’s growing in popularity here.
“It’s a lot more popular for the younger girls,” Dr. Frenzel said. “The girls between 18 and 25 or 30, once you get in the girls that are 30, 35 or 40 a lot of those patients are choosing silicone for some reason.”
Dr. Frenzel said the procedure takes about an hour with most patients getting back to normal in about a week.
