Tuberous deformity of the breast is a hereditary and congenital disease of the breast. This disorder is present at birth, and while it may be present in families, it is not hereditary. Tuberous deformity of the breast is normal in mild form but uncommon in an extreme form. It can affect young women bilaterally but results in breast asymmetry when it is unilateral. This can cause psychological problems, but also practical problems in the choice of weapons and clothes. Women with tuberous breast deformity will typically breastfeed and have no increased or decreased risk of breast or breast cancer. It is not clear why tuberous breasts grow, but it is possible to see the changes that occur when they occur.

What happens during tuberous breast correction surgery?

Breast deformity has several degrees of severity: mild, moderate, and extreme. If you have a mild case of tuberous breast deformity, an increase in the breast with an anatomical implant would be successful. You may need anatomical implants and a breast lift if you have a mild case of tuberous breast deformity. You can need to have lollypop raise and fat grafting in extreme cases of tuberous breast deformity. To adjust the height of your nipple and correct your breast asymmetry, a lollipop eliminates excess breast tissue and skin. It is important to remember that every breast correction surgery is customized to your unique needs.

The most common breast correction procedure involves breast reconstruction and breast enlargement. This operation is performed under a general anesthetic. The wounds you have after your breast deformity operation can be determined by the type of surgery you have. If your nipple shape and size are corrected, there will be a circular scar around your nipple. You’re also going to have a vertical scar passing from the nipple down to the breast fold. Your Cosmetic Surgeon will pay attention to where these incisions are made so that you can hide the scars under your clothing.

While it is possible to correct tuberous breast deformity, because each case of tuberous breast deformity is different, the type of treatment recommended will be different for each individual.  In most cases, the appearance of the breast tuber can be dramatically improved by releasing the deformity-responsible constrictions and inserting appropriate implants. It is necessary to carry out comprehensive research and consult with Cosmetic Surgeons who have expertise and experience in breast surgery. The surgeon will assess you at your Cosmetic Surgeon appointment and will also discuss the size and shape of the breast that you would like to have.

What are the risks and complications with tuberous breast deformity surgery?

It is important to remember that every surgery carries with it the dangers and complications of anesthesia. They can include:

  • Bruising and swelling.
  • Hematomas, or localized swellings can occur that are filled with blood.
  • Capsular contraction as a result of excessive scar tissue.
  • Skin necrosis or skin death.
  • A loss of nipple sensation.
  • Breast asymmetry.
