Tuberous breast is a congenital condition, which can severely affect your quality of life. This genetic condition which is sometimes referred to as constricted breasts, tubular breasts or herniated areolas varies considerably in severity but in most cases causes issues with either balance, overall breast symmetry or breast aesthetics. Patients come to Elena Prousskaia seeking to resolve sometimes longstanding issues with breast aesthetics related to tuberous breast conditions. This article will explain more about the condition and Elena’s approach to cosmetic surgery.
Your breasts are usually under-developed and are of an ‘unusual’ shape due to lack of volume, constriction of the breast base and a prominent, enlarged areola. The narrow base can cause the breast to look elongated.
Many of Elena’s tuberous breast patients have felt self-conscious about the issue since puberty, which is when this issue manifests. If you are concerned that your breasts are either not developing normally, or have never reached their optimum size or shape, we suggest you book a confidential discussion with Elena or her team to discuss whether this surgery might be appropriate for you.
If any of the following characteristics feel true, then it is likely this is the correct surgical procedure. Obviously, this can be confirmed by a discussion with Elena.
There are a number of techniques Elena can use to restore shape, volume and symmetry to your breasts. She could use your own tissue, fat transfer, implants, expanders and/or remodeling of your breast tissue. The choice of technique suitable for you will depend on your expectations and the breast volume and shape that you would like to achieve. It is a decision which you will make together following a long discussion and examination in the clinic.
It is normal to have a second consultation, for you to ask any further questions, once you have had time to consider the different surgical options. After the decision is made we will carefully prepare for your surgery.
Elena will talk you through all the necessary pre-surgery investigations, as well as the after-care required. She will also fully explain the risks associated with the operation. We will only go ahead with the procedure once you are completely ready and happy with the choice we have made together.
The total cost of the surgery will be confirmed after the first consultation.
The cost includes the hospital, surgeon and anaesthetic fees. It also covers all post-operative visits. The initial consultation fee will be invoiced separately. The prices apply only at the time of publication and are subject to changes without notification.
