Tubular Breast Deformity Surgery
Breasts come in many different shapes and sizes, from small and round to longer, tubular shapes. One type of breast asymmetry issue is called tubular breast deformity, or tuberous breast deformity. There are many different presentations to this condition, but most patients have one or both breasts that are tubular in shape, with less volume and larger nipples and areolas. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills offers tubular breast deformity surgery to address the shape, size and symmetry of tubular breasts.
Tuberous breast deformity has specific characteristics. While most tubular breasts are small in size, volume is not the only issue. Tubular breast deformity tends to include areolar herniation or puffiness in the nipple-areolar complex area. There is usually breast asymmetry and the crease under the breast or inframammary fold is higher. A patient may have a variety of these traits in various measures, resulting in a tubular breast deformity. To achieve symmetrical, rounded or larger breasts, tubular breast deformity surgery can be performed.
Augmentation for Tubular Breasts
Each person with tubular breast deformity may have different characteristics. Plus, the desired breast shape and size is unique to the patient. The principles of treatment for tuberous breast deformity include addressing the specific characteristics while creating the desired breast configuration of the patient. These principle goals include:
- Make the nipple-areolar complex smaller
- Add breast volume with a breast implant
- Make the breast round as opposed to a tube shape
- Add volume to the lower part of the breast, also called lower breast pole
- Lower the infra-mammary breast fold
