Tuberous breast correction is a surgical procedure that helps women who are suffering from a common congenital deformity known as tubular breasts, hypoplasia, or constricted breast deformity. With a combination of a breast lift and a custom augmentation, a skilled breast surgeon can reshape the breast to an aesthetically pleasing appearance, rounded, full, and balanced.
What is tuberous breast correction?
Tuberous breast correction, in most cases, requires a combination of both breast augmentation and breast lift to achieve the desired shape. During your private consultation, a determination about the surgical procedure and the type of implants that will best correct the appearance of one or both breasts.
How can you tell if you have tuberous breasts?
Tuberous breasts have several hallmarks. These can include one or more specific features affecting one or both of the breasts:
- Breast hypoplasia or extremely small, underdeveloped breasts
- Constriction of tissue/smaller base of the breast
- A wide space between the breasts, at least 1 ½ inches
- An abnormally elevated breast fold (crease beneath the breast)
- Conical or drooping breasts
- Breast asymmetry
- Areola hypertrophy (larger areola)
- Areola herniation (puffy and bulging nipple)
What causes tuberous breasts?
Tuberous or tubular breasts are a congenital deformity, and the cause is unknown. Researchers have not confirmed a genetic link as the cause of tubular breasts. No other health problems are associated with tuberous breasts, but many women with the condition feel embarrassed by their breasts and could develop some emotional issues as a result.
Am I a candidate for tuberous breast correction?
If you have been suffering a lack of confidence in your body image due to asymmetry, larger areolas, or underdeveloped, cylindrical-shaped breast tissue, you may be a candidate for tuberous breast correction. A candidate for tubular breast correction should be in good general health, as the procedure is performed under anesthesia.
What can I expect from tuberous breast correction?
Tuberous breast correction requires the skills of an experienced and talented breast surgeon. Dr. Wiener regarded as being among the most accomplished breast surgeons practicing in Houston. He can help you resolve the condition and live a happier, healthier life. The procedure creates a balanced shape and refined areola size and solves problems with a high breast crease. Each case of tubular breasts is unique. Your surgery will be a custom procedure.
In a tuberous breast correction procedure, anesthesia will be administered, so you are comfortable. In most cases, one surgery is necessary, and other cases may require a staged approach, placing a tissue expander as the first step. Your custom procedure may include a breast lift to remove excess skin and tighten and reshape the breast tissue. The surgical procedure will take between two to three hours, but as all cases of tubular breast correction are unique, the time varies.
What is the recovery time?
After Dr. Wiener delicately sutures your incisions to limit visible scarring, your chest will be bandaged and covered with a compression bra. You will be able to return home that day, driven by another person. Plan on having a friend or family member stay with you during the first 24 hours.
Many people return to work a week after surgery, but exercise should still be avoided for four to six weeks to ensure your incisions heal properly. After two weeks, you should be feeling back to normal, and within a month, your new breasts will be taking their final shape. By the time three months rolls around, you will be ready to wear swimwear, lingerie, and be confident revealing your new, balanced, shapely figure.
