Tubular breasts are the result of a congenital deformity that can appear in both genders during puberty and can contribute to anxiety and embarrassment. It occurs when one or both breasts fail to fully expand, leading to asymmetrical or misshapen anatomy. Breasts may appear constricted at the base with enlarged nipples. There are different severities of this condition, but all types can be surgically corrected.
Patients with tubular breasts who are generally healthy.
This surgery is performed in an outpatient surgical facility under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will make the appropriate incisions based on the exact shape and density of your breast tissue. Your surgeon will release the constricted tissue at the base of your breasts, allowing it to spread and relax into a fuller, more natural shape. If you want bigger breasts or your breasts are different sizes, you’ll need implants. A silicone or saline implant will be inserted under or over your muscle.
Following surgery, you’ll need a week to recover before resuming normal activities.
A tubular breast correction may result in temporary or permanent changes in sensation. All surgeries carry risks for medical complications, which your surgeon will discuss the risks you. Don’t take aspirin, Advil, fish oil, or other blood thinners for two weeks before and after surgery, to avoid hematomas and excessive bleeding.
In about three months, your breasts will have settled into their final, more balanced and attractive positioning.
