Excellent TUBA candidate
Thank you for your question and posting appropriate pictures. You seem to be an excellent candidate for trans umbilical breast augmentation procedure. In this procedure, saline breast implants are placed under the muscle of your breasts through the umbilicus or navel. Based on your pictures provided, you seem to have an umbilical hernia which would be repaired at the same time providing you with an "innie". The only drawback of the TUBA procedure is saline implants must be used. This is an idea for a patient that wishes to have a modest improvement in size, in your case possibly a full B or small C cup.
No Weight Limits for Breast Augmentation.
Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering breast augmentation surgery (regarding breast implant type/size/profile selection) is:
1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully. Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you are looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work.
2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining breast implant size/type/profile will most likely help achieve your goals.
In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. I have found that the use of words such as “natural” or "C or D cup" etc means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful.
Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on him who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate.
3. Once you feel you have communicated your goals clearly, allow your plastic surgeon to use his/her years of experience/judgment to choose the breast implant size/profile that will best meet your goals. Again, in my practice, this decision is usually made during surgery (after the use of temporary intraoperative sizers).
I hope this, and the attached link (dedicated to breast augmentation surgery concerns), helps. Best wishes.
