Investing in Tuberous Breast Correction

Are you interested in tuberous breast correction in Sydney? Such a procedure aims to correct a developmental issue of the breast called tuberous breast or tubular breast as some people might call it.

Now tuberous breasts are often not apparent until towards the end of puberty and characterised by excessive tightness of the skin surrounding the breast area along with a long crease below the breast which plastic surgeons often refer to as the inframammary fold.

Your options in tuberous breast correction in Sydney

Now the problem with tuberous breasts is that it hinders the natural development of breast as it is constricted by the inframammary fold and the skin surrounding the breast area. The result is a narrow cone shaped appearance as opposed to round and fuller appearance of a normal breast.

In most cases, tuberous breasts tend to appear slightly above the chest with a wide space in between. Growing breast tissue is directed through the cone-shaped skin going against the nipple area which can cause it to appear puffy and enlarged. The extent of the condition can be similar for both breasts but in most cases, one breast can appear larger than the other.

This condition can be surgically treated with tuberous breast correction in Australia. However, it’s not a problem that can be treated with a single breast surgery. A lot of breast surgeons would agree that tuberous breast correction is perhaps the most difficult and complex breast surgery operation out there and demands a significant level of skill. Tuberous breast can affect women in various degrees from light to extremely severe cases. Tuberous breast correction is often performed in stages depending on how severe the condition is.

Like all the surgical procedures under his care, Dr. Tavakoli views cases of tuberous breast as a challenge that he and his team are more than capable of taking on. Goals of tuberous breast correction include among other things – adjusting the inframammary fold, expanding the tissue and skin surrounding the breast, moulding the breast into a round and fuller appearance and reducing the areola (nipple) size.

As you might imagine, such goals require more than just one kind of breast surgery operation but a combination of 2 or more which again depends on the severity of the condition. In most cases, tuberous correction requires breast augmentation mammoplasty done in conjunction with mastopexy and nipple correction surgery.
