Correction of Tubular Breasts
Tubular or tuberous breast are an abnormal shaping of the breast. It is a condition which many people live with and it results in breasts, as the name suggests, have a constricted or tube-like appearance. The condition is usually genetic and features tightened, narrow bases to the breasts, making them look longer and thinner than regular breasts. Many people with tubular breasts find them hard to live with and they can make it difficult to find clothes that fit properly.
If you are concerned about the appearance of your breasts you can discuss this at your consultation with us.
Tubular Breast Correction
Tubular breasts is a condition you will have been born with and probably something you’ve been aware of most of your life. Younger girls first noticing the difference in their breasts may suffer from self-confidence issues and have real concerns about their body. It might be something you have not been able to discuss with anybody because it feels so unusual.
Surprisingly common, tubular breasts are not all that unusual, although different people have different severities of the condition. It can be anything from a high crease under the breast to elongated tube-like breasts which may sit unevenly or hang down. If you have any concerns about the shape of your breasts this is something you can discuss with us.
Tubular Breast Treatment Options
There are a number of ways to treat tubular breasts with surgery. The most common ways include:
Release of Internal Constricting Tissue and Breast Implant
This procedure involves opening and widening the constricted tissues to give a broader base to the breast. This base is kept in place by the implant which helps create the natural breast shape. In addition to correcting the constricted breast base, the size of the areola which is often stretched out, might need to be reduced at the same time.
Inflatable Implants for Severe Cases
In severe cases of tuberous breasts inflatable implants may be suggested. With severe constriction the implants are regularly re-inflated with saltwater injections, helping to stretch your tissue slowly over time. Once adequate correction is achieved, inflatable implants can then be replaced by permanent breast implants.
The surgery best for your circumstances is entirely dependent on your breast shape and your expectations. The treatment of tubular breasts really is an individual experience as every case is different.
