Tuberous breasts are misshapen due to a congenital abnormality restricting normal puberty development. This common condition varies in severity and asymmetry and profoundly affects breast aesthetics, balance, and self-perception. With his tuberous breast correction in Houston, Dr. Vitenas can give you full, round breasts for a shapely silhouette and boosted confidence.
Breast Augmentation to Correct Tuberous Breasts
One way to correct tuberous breasts is with breast augmentation to achieve a more symmetrical and enhanced bust. Depending on the degree of irregularity, the procedure may resize the areola and pair implants with fat transfer for naturally beautiful results.
When the fat transfer is necessary to reshape tuberous breasts, the procedure harvests fat from one or more areas and injects it into the breasts. Doing so enlarges the breast’s lower half while avoiding a more prominent areola for more volume and fullness.
Tissue expansion may also be necessary, which expands the base of the breast and releases lower constricted areas. The procedure uses a tissue expander inflated inside the breast to correct its volume. This surgical technique allows the breasts to develop into a dome shape, so the breasts appear fuller and less tuberous.
