Tuberous Breast Deformity Correction

This 20 year old patient from England had concerns about her tuberous breasts for many years.  She was very uncomfortable with the size and shape of her breasts.  She was told that she had “constricted” breasts also referred to as “tuberous” breasts, or  “tubular” breasts.  She researched for the best plastic surgeon to achieve her goals with breast augmentation and tuberous breast correction and found Dr. Pousti.

This 31 year old traveled from Northern California to have Dr. Pousti perform her breast augmentation surgery. She was not happy with the size and shape of her breasts (tuberous breasts) and did not like how large and puffy her areola were.

DSC00254

After evaluation, it was determined that breast implants as well as benelli breast lift would be necessary to address the size and “puffiness” of the areola as well as nipple/areola placement on the breast mound.

DSC00255

The night prior to surgery, Dr. Pousti performs measurements and markings that will serve as a road map during the procedure.  As he is measuring the patient, he is discussing the surgery and the potential risks/ complications of the surgery as well.

DSC00267

As you can see, there is some breast asymmetry that will also be addressed during the procedure.  Dr. Pousti cannot promise “perfect symmetry” but will have a nice improvement.  The right breast is larger and lower than the left breast.

DSC00270

The incision is made around the areola and extra tissue is removed to address the “puffiness”.  The size of the areola is also reduced during this surgery.

Breast Augmentation with Benelli Breast Lift for Tuberous Breast Correction

Click here to see full details on this patient

This 26 year old patient was interested in correcting her tuberous breasts (wanted to increase breast size as well as shape).  Tuberous breasts are also known as constricted breasts. This deformity is usually distinguished by deficiency of breast tissue and skin, rupture of breast tissue around the areola and constriction of the breast base. This deformity is generally classified into three categories; minor constriction, consisting of noticeable differences in the size and shape of the breasts; moderate constriction, consisting of a more significant lack of breast tissue as well as differences in size and shape of breast; and severe constriction, consisting of major deficiency of breast tissue and severe abnormalities of the shape and size of the breast.

silicone gel implants

She started researching and asking her friends, and was referred to Dr. Tom Pousti for breast enhancement surgery. Although this is a challenging deformity, it is possible to improve and repair through procedures such as breast augmentation, mastopexy and tissue expansion. Dr. Pousti does what is possible to achieve symmetry and take into account the patient’s wishes and desired outcome of the shape and size of the breast.

constricted breast

The patients’ goals as well as the procedure to improve her breast size and also to”round out” the breast shape was discussed prior to surgery and reviewed again the morning of surgery.

Markings and measurements were taken to proceed with breast augmentation with benelli breast lift (incision around areola).
