Feeling and Looking Younger

After I finished having my kids, I knew that I wanted a mommy makeover. My stomach was in terrible shape, my arms looked completely destroyed, and my legs had been carrying weight for years. I wanted a full body overhaul, so I started by doing what I could to look and feel younger. I started exercising each and every day, and then I worked hard on doing my hair and makeup better. It was amazing to see the difference it made, but I wanted something more. I consulted with a cosmetic surgeon, and I scheduled the surgery that changed my life for the better.

Can You Get Breast Implants Without Obvious Scarring?

Getting breast implants can make a woman feel proud or even confident, but not all breast implant surgeries are created equal. If you're wondering about getting breast implants but don't want to have obvious scars sticking out when you wear a swimsuit, then there's a solution out there for you. Here's what you ought to know about it.

Transumbilical Breast Augmentation

The procedure you're looking for is called transumbilical breast augmentation. The biggest difference between this procedure and standard breast augmentation surgery is in the name: transumbilical.

Traditional breast augmentation requires creating an incision under the breast or in the armpit in order to insert the implant. This creates noticeable scarring and can make a person feel self-conscious, even if they're otherwise happy with the way that they look. Transumbilical breast augmentation, on the other hand, creates a small incision all the way down at your navel or belly button instead.


But with an incision comes the risk for scarring, right? Well, yes and no. The trick here is that transumbilical breast augmentation requires a much smaller incision — usually less than an inch — because the breast implants are inserted before they're inflated with saline. They're then threaded up into the breast cavity and only then are they inflated.

If that weren't enough for you, the incision for this procedure is performed in the navel itself. Any tiny scar that you could have left will completely blend in and disappear within the natural folds of your navel, and no one will be able to tell that you ever had a surgical procedure performed.

What to Expect

Going through transumbilical breast augmentation is similar to standard breast augmentation, but there's a reduced recovery time since you have a smaller incision.

You and your doctor will discuss what type and size of breast implants you want, and they will show you a mock-up to give you an idea of how that size will look on your body's frame. Once you've decided, you'll choose a date for surgery.

Surgery is a relatively easy process for you to go through. You'll be placed under general anesthesia so you can't feel anything, and the surgeon will go to work. A tiny incision is made, the implant is threaded up through the body, and then the amount of saline the two of you agreed upon is inserted into each implant. When you wake up, you'll feel some soreness in your breasts from their increased size stretching your skin a bit, and there may be some slight pain in the navel area, but otherwise, you'll feel considerably more comfortable than if you had received traditional surgery.
