Dr. Gabriel Patino of The Cosmetic Surgical Center of El Cerrito was recently appointed to notable position by the American Society of Cosmetic Physicians
El Cerrito, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/17/2015 --El Cerrito Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Gabriel Patino was recently appointed by the American Society of Cosmetic Physicians (ASCP) as the Program Director for the Trans Umbilical Breast Augmentation Workshop. As the only instructor for the workshop, Dr. Patino will be teaching surgeons from around the world how to complete the procedure under tumescent anesthesia.
Trans umbilical breast augmentation (TUBA) is a fairly new cosmetic surgery procedure that allows the implantation of saline breast implants through a small incision in the navel instead of incisions in the breast or around the areola.
Currently, this is the only TUBA workshop offered by the ASCP and is the only one that teaches surgeons the procedure under tumescent anesthesia, which is also known as localized anesthesia, instead of requiring the patient to undergo general anesthesia for the procedure. With the TUBA procedure taught by Dr. Patino, no use of endoscopes or general anesthesia is required.
Dr. Patino has also developed a new instrument that makes this formerly challenging procedure very easy to learn by other surgeons. By instructing this workshop, Dr. Patino is helping to make this procedure available to more patients across the world as more surgeons become trained and experienced with the technique.
The ASCP also invited Dr. Patino to speak about the Trans Abdominal Breast Augmentation (TABA) procedure at their yearly conference in Orlando on October 10, 2015. Additionally, he will be speaking about the TUBA procedure at the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) yearly meeting in Hollywood, Florida in January 2016.
