What Is Tuberous Breast Correction?

The size and the shape of the breasts can play an important role in a woman’s self-esteem. Tuberous breasts typically become apparent in the initial stages of puberty, causing stress and anxiety for many patients. The breasts will look smaller, suffer from asymmetry and areolar herniation, and appear constricted at the base with a poorly formed inframammary fold. Because each woman’s tuberous breasts will have their own unique imperfections, the surgery must be highly customized to the individual.

The extent that which tuberous breasts bother the patient varies. Some women may not even be aware they have the condition. They may just desire a breast augmentation to reach a larger cup size. With more severe cases, our team of meticulously trained NYC plastic surgeons may need to use multiple surgical techniques to achieve a natural-looking, balanced outcome.

What Are The Symptoms Of Tubular Breasts?

  • Cylindrical, elongated shape
  • Constricted breast tissue at the base
  • The inframammary fold is unusually high on the chest wall
  • The breasts appear to sag and droop
  • The areolas are oversized and puffy-looking
  • The breasts are smaller than usual
  • The breasts may be asymmetrical

Who Makes A Good Candidate?

The best way to determine your candidacy is to schedule a private, discreet consultation with our New York City board-certified plastic surgeons who will evaluate your breasts on an individual basis. We will conduct a thorough physical examination and review of your medical history, discuss your cosmetic concerns, and create a personalized treatment plan to achieve your goals for improvement. 

Candidates for NYC tuberous breast correction are usually interested in boosting their breast volume through augmentation and creating a more traditional upper chest appearance in general. They should be non-smokers of sound mind and body who have realistic expectations for their final results.

What Should I Expect From The Tuberous Breast Correction Procedure?

Tuberous breast correction surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under light general anesthesia or sedation with local anesthesia. Each surgery will be customized to address your anatomical issues, comfort levels, and desired outcome.

During surgery, the surgeon may need to remove excess breast tissue and reposition the inframammary fold to support a more conventional breast appearance. This will help promote a rounder, more organic-looking breast shape. In cases of a small cup size or asymmetry, our team can use breast implants to augment your bust. Oftentimes a breast lift is also needed to correct ptosis and improve the look and positioning of the nipples. While this may sound like a lot of work, our skilled surgeons aim to perform all of these changes in a single, streamlined session whenever possible so you can enjoy expedited recovery and minimized discomfort.

What Can I Expect From My Recovery?

After surgery, you’ll need a friend or family member to drive you home and assist you for around 24 hours. Our team will provide a detailed aftercare plan with instructions for wound care, bathing and showering, sleeping, resuming exercise, and returning to work. We will also send you home with pain medications, anti-nausea pills, and antibiotics. You’ll attend regular follow-up visits to ensure your healing is progressing as planned. Most clients can expect to return to work within 7-10 days, provided their job is not physically taxing. Strenuous exertion and heavy lifting, however, should be postponed for 3-6 weeks, or as specified by your NYC plastic surgeon.
