What are tubular or tuberous breasts?
Tuberous, tubular or constricted breasts, are an anomaly in the shape of the breast. This genetic condition is characterized by a tight and narrow base in the breast and a high fold, which makes the breasts appear elongated. If you are worried about their shape you may have tuberous breasts.
Tuberous sinuses are very common but can vary greatly in the degree of severity or deformation with respect to what is considered normal breasts. In the mild form, it could be characterized by a high crease below the chest and a short distance between the nipple and the crease under the breast. The most severe cases are characterized by a tightness in the lower part of the breast and an elongated shape of the breast, as well as a herniation of the areola ( the brown area around the nipple).
The results of the intervention
The combination of a breast implant or a tissue expander to enlarge the base and tighten the skin will give a really nice change to the volume and shape of your bust. The main benefits that our previous patients have found are:
- An increase in self-esteem and confidence in the body.
- The clothes fit you better and you do not have to worry about using padded bras.
- You start to feel ‘normal’.
When the tuberous sinuses are corrected by a combination of breast implants, tissue expanders or nipple correction surgery, the results are permanent. However, the appearance of your breasts can change if you change your weight, or you get pregnant and breastfeeding. These changes would also occur in non-tubular sinuses and cannot be predicted in the final analysis.
