What Are Tuberous Breasts?
Tubular breasts are actually a type of birth defect. However, the issue doesn’t present itself until the breasts begin to develop. When this happens, it is often the case that a ring of tissue near the nipple (areola) will constrict the developing breasts. This often causes a puffy areola, very limited breast tissue, small breasts, and sagging breasts.
These issues often have a massive impact on the patient’s emotional, sexual, and psychological development. While it is possible to correct with breast augmentation, Beverly Hills patients with tuberous breasts will need to undergo a different procedure to correct the issue.
Correcting Tuberous Breasts with Breast Augmentation
Beverly Hills women that suffer from tuberous breasts can get relief with breast augmentation. However, the procedure will obviously be much different than for patients who do not suffer from tubular breasts. Usually, Dr. Bruno will employ several different techniques to get the results that the patient needs.
The main issue is expanding the tough ring or band of tissue around the areola. This is what often holds the breast tissue back and creates the puffiness of the nipple. Another issue is that the breasts often need a small lift in order to get the areola and the breast fold into the right position.
Some women who suffer from tubular breasts can get terrific results with an anatomically shaped implant. However, Dr. Bruno will make a recommendation based on his examination of each individual patient.
