T

Tissue expansion - a surgical procedure that implies the insertion of a balloon-like device (called an expander) under the skin. The expander then slowly secretes liquid into the area to be repaired to actually stretch and expand the skin. This serves the function of "growing" extra skin to repair nearby lost or damaged skin.

Tissue  - A group or collection of similar cells that perform a particular function. For example, epithelial tissue which forms the skin and mucous membrane that line the respiratory system and other internal body areas.

Tretinoin - A prescription drug related to vitamin A used to treat acne and other skin disorders.

Thrombosis - The formation or development of a blood clot.

(TUBA)-Trans-Umbilical Breast Augmentation - A bellybutton incision with a faster recovery than some other approaches. This technique only allows sub-glandular placement of the implant and also needs additional incisions to treat serious complications.
