Endoscopic breast augmentation is the modern breasts makeover technique that applies advanced technology to ensure the aesthetic aspect of the results. The 4 common incision sites possible are at the transaxillary (armpit folds), periareolar (around the nipples), the inframammary (the underboob creases), and the transumbilical (the belly button).

The belly button breast augmentation, also known as transumbilical breast augmentation, is the final choice among the 4 techniques. During the procedure, the surgeons will create what looks like a “tunnel” from the belly button straight to the breasts. As technology keeps on getting better and better, this technique becomes obsolete and not brings as much efficiency as the other 3.

Some important things to keep in mind

To have transumbilical breast augmentation, the patient must meet the requirements below:

  • Is over 18 years old.
  • Is not having menstruation, fever, or sickness.
  • Is not pregnant or had a baby from 6 months to 1 year ago.
  • Is not contracted with heart or blood pressure diseases, and diabetes.
  • If the patient has just gone through surgery recently, a 1 – 2 year gap should be made before the breast augmentation.

Before having belly button breast augmentation, the patient must be diagnosed by a certified doctor. The physician can then suggest the best incisions for the surgery, the types of implant used, and the size of the implant. In addition, you will also need to do your research and seek out a reputable facility with quality to protect yourself and your health.

Another important thing to remember is to follow the doctor’s guidance on aftercare and diet. Post-operative care is extremely crucial but is often neglected by many cosmetic facilities, leading to unwanted complications due to improper routines and aftercare.

Breast augmentation is becoming more and more popular with its great aesthetic results. To achieve the look that you desired, you can contact Gangwhoo cosmetic hospital to be the place that performs your procedure. We guarantee you the best of both worlds in every possible way.
