Tuberous Breasts (Hypoplasia) Before and After Photos
Signs of tuberous breasts may include breast laxity, narrow breasts, enlarged areolas, minimal breast tissue and a high mammary fold. Women who have tubular breasts often wish to correct them through surgery. If you are wanting more rounded breasts, take the time to look at our tuberous breasts before and after photos to see if Dr Norris’ work appeals to you.
The outcomes shown are only relevant for this patient and do not necessarily reflect the results other patients may experience, as results may vary due to many factors including the individual’s genetics, diet and exercise.
The tuberous breast correction procedure
Before undergoing tuberous breast correction, you will need to decide on an implant type, texture, size and shape, as well as an implant location. The surgery itself will take a few hours to complete and is performed under general anaesthesia.
Dr Norris will make an incision, most likely around the areola or below the breast, in order to release the constricting ring of tissue and redistribute the existing breast tissue into a more desired shape. He will then insert an implant into a pocket, either over or under the pectoral muscle, before closing the incisions with sutures.
Potential candidates for tuberous breast correction
At Form and Face clinic in Sydney, the first step to determining whether you are a candidate for tuberous breast correction is to have a consultation with Dr Norris. You are a potential candidate for tuberous breast correction if:
- Your breasts look pointed or narrow, as opposed to teardrop shaped or rounded
- Your nipples are out of balance with the breast mound
- You have nipples that point downwards or inwards
- Your breasts have very little tissue in the upper pole and are low or small in appearance
- You are physically healthy
- You have realistic expectations
What to expect after a tuberous breast correction
Dr Norris will apply a dressing or bandage to your incisions following the procedure. A small, thin tube may also be placed under the skin to drain any excess fluid or blood in the days after surgery.
You will need to take some time off work to rest after a tuberous breast correction procedure, however most patients are able to return to all normal activities, with the exception of strenuous exercise, within two weeks.
