What are the options for tuberous breast correction?
What are the options for surgery? What kind of breast lifts? Implants and placement? What is the best possible results I can hope for? Is fat transfer a viable option? Are there any charities to help me pay? Are there specialist? What about the internal bra?
There are many options to consider when correcting tuberous breasts. I customize my surgical plan for each patient depending on her circumstances and desires. Without seeing you, it is almost impossible to advise you. In general, my goals are to correct the tuberosity and improve symmetry. The tuberous breast has a narrow base that often needs to be widened. Most women also need a lift on that side with resizing of the areola. In general, the tuberous breast deformity causes a lot of breast asymmetry and I commonly need to perform surgery on the unaffected breast to give more symmetry. Whether this breast needs a reduction or a lift depends on your preferences. Placing one or two implants or performing fat grafting to one or both breasts may also be an option. Correction of tuberous breasts is often best done with a staged approach (not all at once with one surgery), but, again, I can’t tell for sure without being able to see you. The tuberous breast deformity is considered a congenital anomaly and, as such, is sometimes covered by your health insurance – check with your insurance provider to see if this is an option for you.
