Also known as snoopy, constricted or conical-shaped breasts, tuberous breasts are breasts that do not have a natural round shape and are commonly different on each side, which can contribute to self-confidence problems. Tuberous breast correction can help create a proportional breast and natural appearance, uplifting the lives of women from Toowoomba, across Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
What Are Tuberous Breasts?
Tuberous breast deformity is a congenital or developmental abnormality of the breasts, typically caused by the presence of a constructing ring of tissue at the base of the areola. Signs of tuberous breasts include large, puffy areolas, narrow breasts that are separated widely from each other, minimal breast tissue (especially in the lower breast below the nipple), a high mammary fold and sagging of the breasts, even though they may be relatively small.
Tuberous breasts can occur in one or both breasts, and having breast asymmetry is also very common with this condition. This abnormality usually begins developing during puberty and in some cases, may worsen with age.
The Tuberous Breast Correction Procedure
Tuberous breast correction differs from other breast reshaping and augmentation techniques, as A/Prof Magnusson must release the constricting ring of tissue, as well as redistribute the existing breast tissue in a natural way that allows for a better breast shape and associated implant coverage.
Implants are often used in conjunction with corrective surgery to create a proportional breast and appearance. On top of this, the areola size and position may also be corrected and reduced in size.
In most cases, the correction and augmentation can be performed in a single operation. However, where there are complex underlying issues with the skin or breast tissue, a secondary procedure is frequently required. Usually the second procedure is smaller and often includes fat grafting to further improve symmetry, cleavage and contour.
Am I a Candidate for Tuberous Breast Correction?
With tuberous breasts, every woman’s situation is different. Like all problems of the type some cases are very subtle and may need no intervention. Some of the problems patients experience are:
- Breasts that look pointed or narrow, rather than teardrop shaped or rounded
- Nipples that are out of balance with the underdeveloped breast mound
- Nipples that point downwards or inwards
- Breasts that have very little lower pole tissue and appear puffy, droopy or small
- Breast asymmetry
If you answered yes to one or more of these concerns, you could be a candidate for tuberous breast correction surgery with A/Prof Magnusson. Suitable candidates should be in otherwise good health, without a history of medical conditions that can impair healing or otherwise pose risks on the surgery or the outcome of which.
Prior to your consultation, we recommend that you see your GP for a referral for tuberous breasts, as Medicare assistance may be available for your procedure.
