Tuberous breast deformity is a congenital condition that becomes more obvious at puberty.
Young girls are usually disappointed to see their friends develop fuller and rounder breasts, while they have started developing poorly shaped or uneven breasts. The extent of the deformity or the degree of asymmetry of her breasts may prompt some women to seek treatment. Perhaps the most noticeable abnormality is an overly large areola contributing to the name “tuberous breast”.
Tuberous breast surgery is one of the most complex surgeries and should only be performed by highly experienced plastic cosmetic surgeons, such as Dr. Abel Mounir, who will treat you with compassion and respect. As a specialist in tuberous breast surgery, Dr. Mounir’s objective is to help you make the right decision by explaining all of your options and ultimately provide you with the best results.
Generally speaking, Dr. Mounir will plan the corrective surgery which may involve:
Grolleau has described three types in the tuberous breast, which were derived from the von Heimburg classification:
If your breasts have little tissue below the nipple, a tubular shape, and an enlarged areola, you should contact board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mounir to discuss your candidacy for tuberous breast surgery. During your initial consultation at the Manchester Cosmetic Centre, you will be assessed and examined.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Mounir will give you instructions to follow before and after the surgery.
He will advise you to stop smoking at least six weeks before and after surgery. You should not take aspirin or ibuprofen for at least ten days before the surgery. Based on your past medical history, you may be asked to keep prescribed medication if necessary. After the surgery, you will have a dressing covering your wounds that should be kept on for at least one week. You will be asked to wear a sports bra for at least six weeks. The healing process may be affected if you do not stop smoking as instructed. Occasionally, small openings at the corners of the incisions may occur.
These are usually treated with antibiotics. Depending on the procedure, Dr. Mounir, Manchester plastic surgeon, uses general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation administered by one of our experienced NHS Consultant anesthesiologists. You will be discharged the same day and will need an adult to drive you home and stay with you for a minimum of 24 hours. Dr. Mounir will review your wounds after seven days and then again after six weeks. Patients typically return to work within two weeks after the surgery. Swelling and discomfort after surgery are well controlled with pain medication. You will need to start massaging the scars after six weeks.
Dr. Abel Mounir, cosmetic plastic surgeon, will inform you about the risks of tuberous breast surgery before you make your final decision and give informed consent. As with any surgery, the risks of tuberous breast correction include bleeding, infection, and scarring.
Usually, the cosmetic outcome after correction of tubular breasts is satisfactory. However, the release of the constricted breast tissue could be inadequate, leading to uneven results. Sometimes an expander is necessary to stretch the skin adequately. Unfortunately, patients are often reluctant to go through expansion for a few months. If you have decided to have breast silicone implants, additional risks include capsular contracture, rippling of the implants, and implant rupture.
Tuberous breast deformity is usually not covered by insurance plans. Please call the MCC at the 0800 228 9227, and we will be happy to book you for a consultation with Dr. Abel Mounir, plastic surgeon. You will be provided with the exact cost of your procedure following your initial consultation.
The tuberous or tubular breast deformity is usually due to a congenital condition. You will know if you have a constricted breast if your breast has a narrow base with enlarged nipple-areolar complexes. Nowadays, thanks to the internet and google, patients can diagnose themselves with tuberous breasts after doing their own online research and seeing photos of other patients.
Dr. Mounir typically uses general anesthesia, especially if silicone implants are needed.
The scars do fade with time but will never disappear. The extent of the scarring will depend on the complexity of the surgery and is beyond the surgeon’s control. Because scarring varies considerably from patient to patient, there is always a risk that you may end up with hypertrophic or poor scars. This can be improved with the use of steroids treatment such as Haelan tape.
Most patients will experience some discomfort during the first few days, depending on the complexity of the surgery. You will have some painkillers and antibiotics to protect you against infection for the first five days. Dr. Mounir will assess your healing after one week, after which point you may shower.
The answer is very difficult because every woman is different, but patients with severe breast constriction are unable to breastfeed due to the lack of breast parenchyma.
If you are planning to get pregnant in the near future, you should postpone any cosmetic surgery.
No, not always. For some selected patients, fat injection (fat transfer) can be a very good alternative.
You will need to wait at least four to six weeks before resuming strenuous activity. Walking and light activity are permitted the day following surgery.
