Tuberous breasts, also referred to as tubular breasts, are a common condition in which the breasts develop abnormally. This condition often results in one or both breasts having a narrow, cylindrical shape with unusually high inframammary creases and puffy areolas.
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.
