Will I Be Able To Wear A Normal Bra ?
Tuberous breast correction ensures that patient gains missing volume especially in the lower pole of the breasts which tend to be short of skin and breast tissue. Once lower pole of the breast becomes rounder and fuller bra would normally fit well.
How Do You Fix Tuberous Breast ?
The placement of scars will depend on your preference and the recommendation of your surgeon, Elena Prousskaia. The missing volume is restored with implants after breast remodeling is completed, normally as part of the same procedure. Very rarely in severe grade of tuberosity two stages surgery is needed. In these rare cases tissue expander would be placed first to stretch the tissue and at the second stage it would be replaced with implants. Surgical time is around 2-3,5 hours depending on the complexity of the case.
