Many women suffer from a condition known as tuberous breasts, in which one or both of the breasts typically become deformed or abnormally shaped. Most commonly, tuberous breasts have a narrow, cylindrical appearance with unusually high inframammary creases and puffy areolas. Although this condition is typically benign, it often causes embarrassment and self-consciousness for the women who develop it. If you have symptoms of tuberous breasts, tuberous breast correction in Phoenix by Dr. Craft may be the solution you’re looking for.

What Are Tuberous Breasts?

Tuberous breasts, which are also referred to as tubular breasts, are the result of a congenital condition that most commonly develops during puberty. The symptoms of the condition can vary, but in most cases, the breasts develop small and abnormally shaped. Some of the most common characteristics of tuberous breasts include:

  • Breasts spaced widely apart
  • Small breasts
  • Large, puffy areolas
  • Narrow, cylindrical breasts
  • Breasts sitting unusually high on the chest
  • Unusually high breast creases (inframammary folds)
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Downward-facing nipples
  • Drooping breast skin

Benefits of Tuberous Breast Correction

For anyone who would like to improve the appearance of their tuberous breasts, tuberous breast correction can offer some or all of the following benefits:

  • Enhanced breast shape and size
  • Improved breast symmetry
  • Rounder, more youthful-looking breasts
  • Increased self-confidence
  • More voluptuous figure
  • Increased wardrobe options

What Is Tuberous Breast Correction?

Tuberous breast correction is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of tuberous breasts. The treatment is customized based on the unique needs of each patient, but most commonly, it’s performed with the use of silicone or saline breast implants. These implants are inserted into the affected breasts to create a rounder, more youthful shape and enhance the size of the breasts.

Tuberous breast correction can also involve other surgical techniques, including mastopexy (breast lift), glandular tissue resection, areolar balancing, and internal tissue release. During tuberous breast correction surgery, Dr. Craft’s goals may include:

  • Enhancing the size and shape of the breasts
  • Raising the inframammary fold
  • Lifting the position of the breasts
  • Improving breast symmetry
  • Removing any excess or abnormal tissue
  • Expanding constricted breast tissue to create a rounder appearance
  • Resizing the areolas

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

If you’re interested in tuberous breast correction, you can start the process by having a consultation with Dr. Craft. During this meeting, the doctor will discuss the procedure with you and ask you about what you’re hoping to achieve. He will answer any questions you have and work with you to create a treatment plan that suits your unique needs.

Usually, tuberous breast correction surgery is an outpatient procedure performed using general anesthesia. To begin, Dr. Craft will make small incisions, which will typically be placed either along the folds of the breast, around the nipple, or under the arm. If you’re getting breast implants, the doctor will then carefully insert the customized implants either behind the breast tissue or under the chest muscle. Dr. Craft will then make any other needed adjustments to your breasts according to your treatment plan. Finally, he will close the incisions and apply bandages. Our procedure for tuberous breast correction in Phoenix usually takes between two and three hours, but in some cases, the procedure requires two separate sessions.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

Although the tuberous breast correction recovery process differs from patient to patient, you’ll most likely need to rest for one to two weeks before returning to work. You may also need to wear a surgical support bra for several weeks, and you should wait at least four to six weeks before partaking in strenuous exercise.

How Long Will It Take To See Results?

The improvements to your breasts should be noticeable right away after your tuberous breast correction, but it will take a while to see the complete effects. It can take anywhere from six weeks to three months for the swelling and bruising to disappear and the final results to be visible.
