Tuberous Breast Deformity

Home | Breast | Tuberous Breast Deformity

Tuberous breast deformity, also known as tubular breasts or constricted breasts, is a congenital condition where the breasts develop abnormally, often characterized by a narrow base, a conical shape, and herniated areolas. Dr. Frank Lalezar is a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in cutting-edge breast procedures to help you overcome this condition and acquire the breast aesthetics you desire.

The Condition

Tuberous breast deformity is a congenital condition that impacts the development of a person’s breasts. It is characterized by several distinct features, including a narrow breast base, a conical shape with insufficient breast tissue, and often, herniated areolas. This condition can manifest differently in each individual, leading to variations in severity. Tuberous breast deformity can be emotionally distressing and affect an individual’s self-esteem and body image.

Symptoms of Tuberous Breast Deformity:

  • Conical or tubular breast shape with a narrow base
  • Insufficient breast tissue development
  • Enlarged, herniated, or puffy areolas
  • High inframammary fold (crease under the breast)
  • Asymmetry between breasts, with one more affected than the other
  • Limited breast volume and projection
  • Psychological distress, including self-esteem issues and body image concerns
  • Difficulty finding bras and clothing that fit comfortably and flatteringly

Dr. Lalezar’s Surgical Technique

Dr. Lalezar employs a specialized surgical technique to treat tuberous breast deformity. His approach begins with a minimally invasive incision made around the areola, a strategic choice that reduces the visibility of scars. This incision allows him to address the deformity’s distinct characteristics. He lowers the inframammary fold and expands the breast tissue to reshape the breast and correct the tuberous appearance.

In addition to these structural modifications, Dr. Lalezar places an implant to enhance the overall size and shape of the breast. He complements this with a breast lift, which rejuvenates the breast’s appearance, gives it a more youthful look, and reduces the size of the areola. This approach improves the physical appearance of the breasts and significantly boosts patients’ confidence and quality of life.

A Common

A prevalent misconception about tuberous breast deformity is that breast augmentation alone can correct it. Many believe that simply adding implants will improve the breast’s appearance. However, this approach often fails to address the unique characteristics of the condition, such as the constricted breast base and high inframammary fold, and can even exacerbate the problem. Proper treatment requires a specialized surgical approach performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon trained in dealing with tuberous breasts.

Your Recovery

After undergoing surgery for tuberous breast deformity, you may experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which typically subside within a few weeks. Follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions diligently, including wearing compression garments and attending follow-up appointments. Gradually resume light activities and avoid strenuous exercise until cleared by your surgeon. As your body heals, you’ll notice improved breast shape and increased self-confidence, making the recovery process well worth it.
