What Is Tuberous Breast Correction?

Although tuberous breasts are generally a benign condition, they often cause embarrassment and self-consciousness. If you’d like to permanently improve the appearance of your tuberous breasts, you may want to consider tuberous breast correction surgery with Dr. Balinger.

What Are Tuberous Breasts?

Tuberous breasts are caused by a congenital condition that often develops during puberty. The symptoms of the condition can vary significantly, ranging from slightly uneven breasts to significant breast deformity. The most common symptoms of tuberous breasts include:

  • Breasts widely spaced apart
  • Enlarged, puffy areolas
  • Small breasts due to lack of glandular tissue
  • Sagging breast skin
  • Unusually high inframammary folds
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Downward facing nipples

Benefits of Tuberous Breast Correction

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your tuberous breasts, tuberous breast correction surgery can offer some or all of these benefits:

  • Enhanced breast shape and symmetry
  • Rounder, more youthful-looking breasts
  • More curvaceous figure
  • Improved nipple appearance
  • Increased wardrobe options
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Enhanced breast size
  • Lasting results

What Should I Expect During Tuberous Breast Correction?

If you’re interested in tuberous breast correction, the first step will be a consultation with Dr. Balinger. During this meeting, he will talk with you about what you’re hoping to achieve with the procedure. The doctor will work closely with you to create a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs.

The specifics of tuberous breast correction can vary depending on the specific needs of the individual. Most commonly, the procedure involves the use of customized breast implants, which are used to enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of the breasts. Other techniques may also be utilized during the procedure, including:

  • Breast reshaping
  • Areolar balancing
  • Circumareolar mastopexy
  • Glandular tissue resection
  • Internal tissue release

Typically, tuberous breast correction is performed as an outpatient procedure using either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

After your tuberous breast correction, the details of your recovery will depend on the extent of your procedure. Dr. Balinger will provide you with thorough instructions to ensure that you heal properly. Typically, patients can return to work and resume their normal routines in one to two weeks, but it’s best to wait four to six weeks before partaking in strenuous exercise. You may also need to wear a surgical support bra for several weeks.

You will likely notice immediate improvements to the size, shape, and symmetry of your breasts after undergoing tuberous breast correction. However, you may not see the final results until the swelling and bruising have subsided, which can take several weeks or months.
