Tuberous Breast Repair

Tuberous Breast Repair

Do you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your breasts due to tubular malformation? You’re
not alone. The condition known as tuberous breast or tubular breasts describes when the breast is
constricted at the base and many times has herniated tissue pushing against the areola, causing it to
bulge and enlarge. The breasts themselves typically appear small and may be spaced widely apart.

Tuberous Breast Deformity is a condition that affects many women, causing their breasts to develop
abnormally and unevenly. But now, there’s a solution – Tuberous Breast Repair.

of tuberous breasts, giving you the natural-looking and proportionate breasts you’ve always wanted.

What are the results of this procedure?

The results of Tuberous Breast Repair can vary depending on the severity of the condition, the patient’s individual anatomy, and their desired outcome.

However, in general, patients can expect a significant improvement in the shape, size, and symmetry of their breasts.

During the procedure, our skilled plastic surgeons use a combination of techniques, including breast tissue reshaping, nipple repositioning, and sometimes breast implants, to achieve a natural-looking result. The aim is to correct the tuberous breast deformity and create breasts that look proportional and symmetrical.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is this procedure performed?

Tuberous breast repair surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and involves the following steps:

  1. Incisions: The plastic surgeon will make incisions on the breast around the nipple, keeping their marks as minimal as possible.
  2. Tightening: The plastic  surgeon will make internal incisions to release the tight breast tissue and create a space for an implant, which creates a more symmetrical effect.
  3. Incision closure: The plastic surgeon will close the incisions with sutures and may also place drains to remove excess fluid.
  4. Dressings: The plastic surgeon will apply dressings and a compression garment to the breasts to support the new breast shape and reduce swelling.

The procedure typically takes two to four hours to complete, depending on the extent of the reduction and the patient’s individual anatomy.



What can I expect during the procedure?

Surgery Center
Visthetic Surgery Institute & MedSpa™ features a Medicare Certified state-of-the-art surgery center, measuring over 5,000 square feet. We have three operating rooms, a six-bed recovery area, and three pre-op rooms.


Patients can choose from the following choices for anesthesia: twilight or general. Ninety-eight percent of patients request general anesthesia. This decision is between the patient and the anesthesiologists.

In the pre-op room, you will be prepped by the operating room RN and anesthesiologists. Our plastic surgeon will then use a surgical marker on the skin to delineate exactly what is to be done during the procedure.

You should expect some bruising, swelling and pain after your procedure. It is normal to experience numbness, specifically around the breasts. This will go away in time.

We will prescribe pain medication to control any discomfort. If you begin to have severe pain post-surgery and during your recovery period, please contact us immediately.

When will i see results and how long do they last?

After Tubular breast repair surgery, the healing process can vary depending on the individual patient and the specific details of the procedure.
In general, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the area of the surgery for several days after the procedure. The surgeon may prescribe pain medication or recommend over-the-counter pain relievers to manage any discomfort.

Patients should avoid strenuous activity or heavy lifting for several weeks after surgery to allow the breasts to heal properly. They should also wear a supportive bra for several weeks to help minimize swelling and provide support during the healing process.

The final results of tubular breast repair surgery may take several months to become fully visible as the breasts settle into their new shape. Patients should follow their surgeon’s postoperative care instructions carefully to help ensure optimal healing and a successful outcome.
