A common misconception about the tubular breast is that any breast surgeon can fix it with just a breast implant, but this is not the case. A tuberous breast deformity requires a unique surgical approach involving breast tissue remodelling. The tuberous breast syndrome is the result of a developmental problem. Although there are several types, tuberous breasts usually have the following traits: breast hypoplasia (underdevelopment) asymmetry, breast tissue constriction (causing narrow, pointy breasts) and nipple enlargement.

Choosing a specialist breast surgeon for tuberous breast correction is essential if you want long-lasting and natural-looking results.

How to choose the right breast surgeon

It can be difficult to choose a cosmetic surgeon from the wide selection of practitioners available, which is why we highlight the things to look for when choosing a surgeon for tuberous breast correction.

  • A specialist in tuberous breast correction – explore the surgeon’s website and find their specialities. You want to choose an experienced surgeon who has worked on breast correction procedures, including tuberous breast syndrome.
  • Positive testimonials – most surgeons post their positive testimonials but look for links to external reviewing systems; these will really indicate how clients feel about their service.
  • Before & after galleries – this is the best way to learn what to expect from your cosmetic surgery. Visit Elena Prousskaia’s tuberous breast correction gallery or read about tuberous breast surgery before & after results.
  • Credentials (certificates and awards) – if your surgeon is worth your while, they should be transparent about their cosmetic surgery credentials. Look for a board-certified plastic surgeon, as this is the gold standard for surgery.
  • Experience – an experienced tubular breast surgeon will be able to give you the results you want. A skilful practitioner will be open about where they trained, practised and how long they have been operating.

What do credentials mean in plastic surgery?

There are several certificates and awards to look out for when choosing a cosmetic surgeon. Board certification is the gold standard for plastic surgeons. They can practice without board certification, but you really want to be looking for this credential.

ISAPS – This is a regulatory body that board-certified plastic surgeons can join as members. Their goal is to make it easy for you to identify credible plastic surgeons. Look for this logo on your surgeon’s website.

GMC Registered – The General Medical Council has a register of all medical practitioners, including GPs, medical doctors, dentists and surgeons. Ensure your surgeon is registered with GMC before proceeding with a procedure.


EBOPRAS – The European Board of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (EBOPRAS) is part of the Union of European Medical Specialities. There are equivalent certifications for other nations, but ensure your surgeon is board certified.

RCS (FRCS) – The Royal College of Surgeons works at the forefront of dental and surgical innovations. They work with surgeons, students, and researchers to revolutionise patient care while taking steps to protect its environmental impact. Fellows of the RCS play an important role in guiding surgical innovation; look for ‘FCRS’ when choosing a plastic surgeon.
