Tubular Breast Deformity Surgery
Breasts come in all shapes and sizes, from small or large to round or tubular. Breast size and shape are personal preferences, but many women prefer the appearance of rounder breasts versus elongated. While not necessarily a “deformity,” tubular breast shape can be undesirable to some women. At Maia Plastic Surgery, Dr. Munique Maia offers tubular breast deformity surgery to reshape and resize elongated breasts at our clinic in the greater Washington, DC metro area.
Tuberous breasts are a congenital condition – genetics are responsible for creating this form of breasts. During puberty, girls with tubular breast deformity will have breasts that form in an elongated shape versus round. Some of the characteristics of tuberous breasts include:
- Breast tissue is shaped in a tubular form
- The areolas are exaggerated or enlarged
- There is a pronounced fold under the breast
- Asymmetrical breasts are common in tuberous breasts
Tuberous breasts do not pose any health issues or restrict women from breastfeeding. However, many women want to pursue tuberous breast correction for aesthetic reasons to obtain rounder, symmetrical breasts.
Tuberous Breast Correction
To reshape tuberous breasts, nipple or areola reduction and removing constricting tissue can form rounder breasts. Many women use this opportunity to augment their breast size and shape with the use of breast implants or fat transfer. Dr. Maia is a mammaplasty specialist who can determine the best options to reshape the breasts and areolas to create the desired appearance.
The right breast shape and size can help you feel more confident in your body. If genetics gave you tuberous breasts, you have the option to give yourself the breasts you always wanted.
