About Tuberous Or Tubular Breasts
What are Tuberous Breasts?
Tuberous or Tubular breasts are formed when breast tissue does not form/proliferate correctly during puberty. As a result, tubular breasts appear overly “droopy,” with large or protruding nipples having wider areolas.
Tuberous breasts misshapen breasts and bring asymmetry in breasts. They are also referred to as constricted breast deformities. However, it does not impose any direct threat to your health.
What Are Tubular Breast Symptoms?
Tubular breast is diagnosed with breasts’ appearance. The severity of this is classified from grade 1-4, (4 being the worse). Furthermore, both breasts may exhibit a different grade or presentation. In general, its characteristic features include a constricted or deficient lower pole of the breast with a wide nipple-areola complex through which the breast tissue has herniated.
What Are The Causes Of Tubular Breasts?
The exact reason is still unclear. However, some doctors believe tubular breasts remain unclear due to insufficient breast tissue development until puberty; or irregular or excessive collagen production in breasts that deforms their shape. In most cases, the ring of tissue in the areola hasn’t shaped how it needs to be, causing a droopy appearance.
What Are The Options For Tuberous Breast Correction?
Tuberous breast surgery is an adept option for tuberous breast correction. However, it is a complicated surgery. The surgeon uses an individualized approach based upon the patient’s breast anatomy and personal goals. The surgeon considers the following points while doing surgery:
- Reducing the size of the nipple-areolar complex.
- Releasing the constricted tissue at the base of the breasts. – Breast- lifting (Mastopexy). – Increase the breast volume and projection with either breast implants or fat grafting, or both.
Recovery after Tuberous Breast surgery
As the breast reconstruction surgery completes, the surgeon will apply tape dressings on the incisions and recommend wearing a surgical bra. In addition, the surgeon will prescribe medicines for pain management and provide instructions about how to clean and care for your incisions.
Surgery is performed as a day-care procedure; however patient needs a one-night hospital stay. After surgery, patients feel mild to moderate discomfort during the initial hours, which normalizes in subsequent hours. Patients can return to work after 7-10 days after surgery.
What Are The Complications Of Tuberous Breast Surgery?
During the initial consultation, the doctor will explain the risks of tuberous breast surgery, varying from patient to patient. There will be scars and a risk of further procedures and asymmetry. Bleeding and infection are uncommon but can occur. If you have augmentation simultaneously with implants, additional risks will include capsular contracture, the rippling of the implants, and implant rupture.
Complications can, however, be reduced by careful planning and adhering to post-operative instructions.
Is it possible to breastfeed after tuberous breast surgery?
Generally, patients with tuberous breasts have a reduced ability to breastfeed. However, the surgery will not further lower this ability if the milk ducts are not affected by surgery.
