Your breast size, symmetry, and proportions are critical in building your sense of femininity, balance, self-esteem, and confidence. Although breast deformities are common, women rarely look for solutions to improve their physique because they lack information about tubular breasts.
Dr. Olivia MaDan, a plastic and reconstructive plastic surgeon, performs tubular breast surgery in Nashville to help restore patients’ breast size and shape. Tuberous breast surgery is a highly individualized process, so you need a breast surgeon who will listen and treat you with care to help you look and feel your best.
What Are Tubular Breasts?
Tubular breasts, constricted breasts, tuberous breasts, and breast hypoplasia are all terms for a condition whereby your breast tissue does not develop fully during puberty. This condition may occur on one or both breasts and ranges from mild to severe.
Unfortunately, causes of tuberous breast deformity are unknown and breasts may appear normal until puberty. As the breast tissue matures, it can appear ptotic or saggy with a large, puffy areola. This makes many women feel uncomfortable about the appearance of their chest.
Ideal Candidates for Tubular Breast Surgery
Tubular breast surgery may be right for you if you have:
- An elongated breast shape
- An extremely thin base on one or both breasts
- Asymmetrical breasts
- An overly tight, elevated breast crease (inframammary fold)
- Breast constriction
- Abnormal projection, ptosis, or cone-shaped breasts
Correcting tubular breasts with a combination of tissue expanders, breast implants, and nipple correction surgery has yielded impressive results for our previous patients in Nashville.
Benefits of Tubular Breast Surgery
Tubular breast surgery usually requires expansion of the breast width and lower pole. Releasing the constricted tissues can significantly change the shape of your chest, resulting in a more symmetric appearance. Nipple areola reduction can decrease the size and puffiness caused by herniation of the breast tissue. Implants can be placed to increase breast volume and improve symmetry. Tuberous breast surgery may increase your body confidence and self-esteem.
How a Tubular Breast Procedure Is Performed
Since tubular breasts may cause stress, anxiety, and low self-esteem, many women undergo corrective surgery. There are various treatments available for tubular breasts in Nashville, including breast augmentation and tissue expansion.
Tubular breast surgery is a highly sensitive procedure that only a plastic surgeon with significant breast surgery experience should perform. Dr. MaDan has mastered the art of correcting tubular breasts with the highest degree of accuracy and control when inserting an implant.
Dr. MaDan’s surgical technique gives a natural, symmetrical breast appearance. Each patient has unique requirements, so your procedure may be specific to you. Before your surgery, you will have an in-person consultation with Dr. MaDan to help you choose the tubular breast correction procedure that suits your specific needs.
Plastic Surgery Affiliates prioritizes patient safety before surgery. Before your tubular breast surgery in Nashville, our experts review your medical history and may request pre-operative tests like labs or a mammogram. We may also tell you which precautions to take and which medications to avoid before your procedure.
Dr. MaDan will explain your surgery and make recommendations based on your examination. She will discuss the scars and healing process, the expected length of the surgery, and your expected recovery time. We may take pre-operative photographs to help in your surgical planning, though we do not show these photographs to other patients without your consent.
The surgical approach to treating your tubular breasts depends on your desired results and the condition of your breasts. During your surgery, Dr. MaDan may release the internal constricting tissue to widen the base of your breasts. Then, she may insert an implant to stretch your skin and increase your breast volume, giving you a more natural shape. Nipple areola reduction is often performed at the same time.
