California Surgeon is the First to Offer Transumbilical Breast Augmentation with Silicone Implants

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. -- Jacob Haiavy, MD of Inland Cosmetic Surgery has made history by performing transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA) with silicone gel-filled implants. Dr. Haiavy is only the third surgeon to ever place silicone implants through the discreet incision in the navel.

It was previously believed that only unfilled saline breast implants could be placed through the small incision in the umbilicus, with the saline filling being added through a tube after placement. Silicone gel-filled implants, on the other hand, are pre-filled, and were thus thought to require a larger incision than is possible through the transumbilical plane. This left patients desiring the natural, lightweight feel of silicone breast implants with prominent incisions on or near the breasts.

The addition of the transumbilical incision option for silicone gel-filled implants is a significant milestone in the history of breast augmentation; since attaining FDA approval in 2006, silicone implants have become the preferred implant of hundreds of thousands of breast augmentation patients every year. Not only is the small TUBA belly button incision inconspicuous compared with incisions around the breasts, but Dr. Haiavy believes this technique also facilitates an easier recovery compared with traditional augmentation methods.

"A 'scarless' transumbilical approach appeals to so many patients, but many were torn between this preferred incision option and their desire for the wonderful feel of silicone implants. I am delighted to report patients can now have the best of both worlds," explains Dr. Haiavy.

Transumbilical silicone breast augmentation (TUSBA) is performed along the body's natural planes.

After over 20 years of experience with TUBA using saline implants, Dr. Haiavy collaborated with colleague Gabriel H. Patino, MD to develop the technique for placing silicone implants. He has dubbed the technique for placing silicone implants through a transumbilical incision "TUSBA," which stands for "Transumbilical Silicone Breast Augmentation."

Like TUBA, the TUSBA surgery is performed using blunt instruments to create a tunnel from the incision in the belly button to the breast. Through this tunnel, a pocket is created under the chest muscle, the breast pocket is expanded, and then the work is carefully inspected using an endoscopic camera.

Finally, the silicone gel implants are placed using the Keller Funnel(r) No-Touch(tm) technique, in which the implant is transferred directly from its sterile packaging using a hydrated plastic funnel, which is much like a piping bag used for frosting a cake. The Keller Funnel(r) allows the implant to be placed gently, with excellent precision and zero direct handling by the surgeon, thereby reducing the risk of infection.

While patients will experience a similar soreness in the breasts as they do after other breast augmentation techniques, there is minimal discomfort in the abdomen, Dr. Haiavy explains. He prescribes routine recovery measures, but finds that patients have an easier recovery overall after TUBA versus other augmentation methods.

There is one caveat to the technique: Dr. Haiavy limits TUSBA patients to a maximum breast implant volume of about 400 cc, or an increase of roughly two cup sizes. Still, he says, this is a substantial enough increase that many patients will be able to reach their desired outcome with TUSBA.

"Good candidates for TUSBA breast augmentation include non-smokers in good health who want the natural feel of silicone breast implants without visible scarring. It would also be an excellent choice for those who want to replace lost breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss. I am confident I can achieve an excellent outcome for patients requiring silicone implants of 400 cc or less."

About Inland Cosmetic Surgery:

Inland Cosmetic Surgery offers comprehensive cosmetic surgery and aesthetic services to patients in Rancho Cucamonga and surrounding areas in Southern California. As Medical Director of Inland Cosmetic Surgery and Ahava Medical Spa, Dr. Haiavy has performed over 15,000 cosmetic surgery procedures and is known for his caring approach and superb results.

The Beauty Secrets Men Don’t Want to Tell You: from Bro-tox to Dermal Fillers

BOSTON, Mass. -- The saying 'look good, feel good' does not only ring true for women. Being more physically attractive can have positive implications for career-minded and goal-oriented men. Women have been reaping the benefits of these non-invasive procedures for decades, but recently The Spiegel Center has seen the number of procedures performed on men increase by over 100%. So, if you have been thinking about plastic surgery and aesthetic options you are not alone, we bet your friends are thinking about it too.

Rhinoplasties have stood at the forefront of male plastic surgery for years, but we have recently seen a shift in men's concerns that has resulted in an uptick of aesthetic trends. Each male patient has their individualized concerns and goals, but the common thread amongst most is their desire to look refreshed, without it appearing obvious they have received any treatments. In the past men solely relied on Botulinum (Botox) to achieve this look. Although 'Bro-tox' once dominated the male aesthetic industry, men have now discovered the effectiveness of Tear Trough filler.

Dr. Onir, The Spiegel Center's aesthetic injector has found, "Men love getting their tear troughs filled because it is a fast and effective way to younger-looking lower eyelids without the need for surgery. What used to require a full operation can now be done in moments with the right knowledge and skills. Another popular option is Accutite -- a new non-surgical treatment to 'de-puff' the under eyes."

The Spiegel Center is home to experts in gender and aesthetics. People travel from all over for facial feminization, but to know what makes a face feminine means you know what it takes to make or enhance male attractiveness. Men and women having the same procedures need different techniques and different results.

Dr. Spiegel explains, "For men, we want more horizontal eyebrows, so we do Botox differently. This principle applies to almost all procedures whether it be the eyelid for a blepharoplasty, nose shape for a rhinoplasty, we even want the cheeks to be shaped differently, so we put filler in different areas than we do for women. The different location for cheek fillers, for example, between men and women can be millimeters apart, and the distinction makes all the difference."

To cater to these differences requires a lot of knowledge and a careful eye. The experts at The Spiegel Center understand, appreciate, and know the different techniques required to help you look attractive within your gender. Getting it right includes getting it right for men.

Tear trough hollowing can be treated by injections of hyaluronic acid fillers to restore lost volume and improve darkness and shadowing around the lower eyelids. This is an area where it is especially important to see an expert facial doctor because while the results are natural and beautiful in skilled hands if done incorrectly or by a less experienced practitioner, an unnatural bulge or bluish skin color can result. Dr. Onir and Dr. Spiegel are recognized experts at facial injections including complex regions such as the tear troughs. They have provided patients with personalized care and natural-looking results for over 20 years in the Boston area.

The Spiegel Center located on Boylston Street (Rt. 9) in Newton is comprised of an impressive team, including Dr. Jeffrey Spiegel who has been selected as one of the top five facial plastic surgeons on the East Coast and chosen as one of the 15 most influential plastic surgeons in the world. He is recognized by his peers as an expert in the most complex revision surgeries and has received almost every major award available to Facial Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Onir Spiegel is acknowledged as one of the country's Most Loved Injectors and specializes in facial aesthetics. Learn more at:

American Board of Cosmetic Surgery Raises the Bar for Patient Safety

CHICAGO, Ill. -- To celebrate Patient Safety Awareness Week (March 14-20, 2021), the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS) announces a new way for patients to identify a cosmetic surgeon with a particular focus on safety: Cosmetic Surgery Patient Safety® (CSPS) certification.

"While all of our board certified cosmetic surgeons are already required to understand and meet high safety standards, this added credential shows patients the surgeon has gone above and beyond in prioritizing safety matters," explained Dr. Wilbur Hah, Texas cosmetic surgeon and president of the Board.

To display the Cosmetic Surgery Patient Safety® badge, board certified cosmetic surgeons must pass a specialized, in-depth Patient Safety Exam in addition to the fellowship training and rigorous exams they completed to become a board certified cosmetic surgeon. The CSPS logo is intended to reassure patients that not only is their surgeon highly trained in cosmetic procedures: they are also up to date on the latest research-driven best practices for patient safety.

To find a surgeon with Cosmetic Surgery Patient Safety® certification, patients should look for the CSPS badge on a board certified cosmetic surgeon's ABCS member profile, on their social media or website, or at their practice.

Dr. Hah explained that it is imperative for patients to understand their surgeon's qualifications and experience to safely achieve excellent results, whether it is with nonsurgical treatments or surgical procedures. Safety concerns have arisen in recent years around topics such as a recalled model of breast implant, unsafe Brazilian butt lift techniques, and unqualified providers of injectables. All of these issues point to the necessity of board certified cosmetic surgeons, whose training emphasizes both safety and achieving excellent aesthetic results.

"Choosing a board certified cosmetic surgeon with extensive experience, the highest level of training, and very safe practices is within reach. Once patients realize that, they will settle for nothing less," he said. He urged patients to take advantage of the free resources available on the board's website and patient safety blog as they search for a provider of surgical or nonsurgical procedures.

About American Board of Cosmetic Surgery:

The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS) is the only board dedicated exclusively to excellence in cosmetic surgery. For over 40 years, the ABCS has demonstrated the highest standards of training, knowledge, and expertise in cosmetic surgery, in addition to promoting safe and ethical practice.

California Plastic Surgery Practice Paves the Way for Women in Cosmetic Medicine

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The field of plastic surgery has long had a gender imbalance: while 92% of patients are women, most plastic surgeons are men. In fact, only 1 out of 5 plastic surgeons is female. This is gradually changing, due in part to women like board certified plastic surgeon Christa Clark, MD, FACS, who employs an all-female staff at her practice, Granite Bay Cosmetic Surgery.

Now, Dr. Clark is proud to announce the addition of two more female surgeons to the team: Annika Meyer, MD and Amie Miller, MD.

"I am delighted to be bringing these amazing women into the practice," Dr. Clark commented. "They have each devoted many years and countless hours to becoming the talented plastic surgeons that they are today. Even more importantly, they are well-versed in modern cosmetic medicine and bring a fresh approach to aesthetic procedures. Dr. Meyer and Dr. Miller both have an exceptional eye for nuance and I love their gorgeously natural-looking results."

Dr. Annika Meyer trained as a resident at Mount Sinai Hospital before pursuing a fellowship in facial plastic surgery through the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. She finds the work to be rewarding because of the pivotal part she plays in her patients' lives.

"With facial plastic surgery, a relatively minor change can impact a patient's life tenfold. My role is to help people look the way they feel, and I find that to be deeply satisfying," Dr. Meyer explained.

Dr. Meyer performs the full scope of facial cosmetic procedures, such as facelift, neck lift, rhinoplasty, and more. In addition to surgical options, Dr. Meyer offers the complete spectrum of non-surgical facial rejuvenation options, such as BOTOX(r) and dermal filler, at the practice's medical spa several days each month.

Dr. Amie Miller also takes pride in empowering her patients. Dr. Miller traveled to Granite Bay from the great state of Texas, where she completed a craniofacial surgery fellowship at Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute-an additional level of training beyond her two residencies in general and plastic surgery.

"My philosophy is that I address what is bothering my patients so that they can exist in a much more confident place," said Dr. Miller, who performs breast and body contouring procedures. "It's about handling concerns in a manner that produces natural-looking outcomes."

Dr. Clark said that she and her team have been committed to helping patients live confidently since the practice's founding in 2016. "At Granite Bay Cosmetic Surgery, we believe that aesthetics can transform lives," she explained. Dr. Clark also supports numerous community initiatives that empower women and girls, earning her a reputation for uplifting women. The saying that "empowered women empower women" is not just a hashtag at Granite Bay Cosmetic Surgery, but rather a way of being-and Dr. Clark exemplifies that by sharing her practice with these two accomplished female plastic surgeons.

About Granite Bay Cosmetic Surgery:

Granite Bay Cosmetic Surgery is a private, full-service ambulatory plastic surgery center and medical spa located at 5220 Douglas Blvd, Granite Bay, CA 95746. Stanford trained, board certified plastic surgeon Christa Clark, MD, FACS founded the practice and continues to perform a full range of cosmetic surgery procedures for the breast, body and face.
