Tuberous breasts

07 January 2012

Dear Doctor,
I am 20 years old and I have absolutely small tuberous breasts, but fortunately they are the same size and shape. I would not like to enlarge them at all. It would be my biggest dream to have them a little more rounded.
Is it possible to change the shape of tuberous breasts with a quite small implant? I heard, that in case of tuberous breasts corrective surgeries (like breast lift surgery and nipple reduction) are necessary in addition to insertion of the implants.
To be honest, I could bear financially the insertion of the implants, but I cannot afford more surgeries. Is it possible to get off only with the breast augmentation, and have my breasts more rounded with nothing but the implants?
Thank you very much for your answer in advance!

Dear Christina,

Tuberous or tubular breast is a malformation, which can be reconstructed with complex surgery. Breast lift is not always necessary, but nipple reduction (or modification), the modelling and shaping of the tissues, which causes the abnormality, usually are. Rarely occurs (in light cases), that the insertion of the implants is also sufficient. A personal examination is essential to make a decision.

If you are interested, you should make an appointment for a consultation in our surgery.

All the best,
