Transabdominal Breast Augmentation (TABA)

Transabdominal Breast Augmentation (TABA) is an innovative surgical technique that combines breast augmentation with abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) to achieve enhanced results for both the breasts and abdomen. This procedure is ideal for women seeking breast enhancement and abdominal contouring in a single surgery, resulting in a more balanced and harmonious body silhouette.

TABA Surgery

During TABA surgery, Dr. Cohen utilizes a specialized approach that involves accessing the breast implant placement through the abdominal incision used for the tummy tuck. This technique allows for simultaneous enhancement of the breasts and abdominal area, optimizing aesthetic outcomes and reducing overall recovery time compared to separate procedures.

Benefits of TABA

  1. Enhanced Breast Volume: TABA allows for breast augmentation using implants, resulting in increased breast size, fullness, and improved shape.
  2. Abdominal Contouring: By combining breast augmentation with a tummy tuck, TABA addresses excess abdominal skin, tightens the abdominal muscles, and creates a smoother, firmer abdomen.
  3. Single Surgery: TABA streamlines the cosmetic enhancement process by addressing both the breasts and abdomen in one surgical session, reducing overall downtime and recovery periods.
  4. Natural-Looking Results: The TABA technique is designed to achieve natural-looking results that enhance body proportions and symmetry, providing a balanced and harmonious aesthetic appearance.
  5. Customized Approach: Dr. Cohen tailors the procedure to each patient’s unique anatomy, cosmetic goals, and desired breast size and shape, ensuring personalized and satisfying outcomes.

Candidates for TABA

Ideal candidates for TABA are generally healthy individuals who:

  • Desire breast augmentation and abdominal contouring
  • Have realistic expectations about the procedure and outcomes
  • Are not planning significant weight fluctuations or future pregnancies
  • Are non-smokers or willing to quit smoking before and after surgery to optimize healing and results
  • Have adequate skin elasticity for optimal surgical outcomes

Consultation and Treatment Plan

During the consultation, Dr. Cohen will assess the patient’s medical history, perform a physical examination, discuss goals and expectations, and explain the TABA procedure in detail. Dr. Cohen will work closely with the patient to create a customized treatment plan that addresses their specific needs and aesthetic preferences.

Recovery and Results

Recovery from TABA varies depending on individual healing factors and the extent of the procedure. Patients can expect some initial swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed medications and post-operative care instructions. Most patients can resume light activities within a week, gradually returning to normal activities over several weeks.
