Tuberous Breast Cosmetic Surgery in Seattle

by Dr. Scott Sattler

Tuberous Breast Correction

A breast that is characterized by a short vertical height, tight infra-mammary fold and lack of rounded contour is described to ‘tuberous’ in shape. This breast deformity is challenging to correct, and requires meticulous planning and surgical technique to yield an acceptable cosmetic result.

In my experience, the main issues that tuberous breast correction surgery addresses are the dilated appearance of the areola, the constricted breast shape and the sagging nipple position. The need for additional breast volume is an issue for some tuberous breast patients, but not for all.

This patient depicted below has all of the typical features seen in tuberous breast patients. She also desired more breast volume. She was treated with a peri-areolar ‘donut’ mastopexy, reshaping of the lower pole of the breast and augmentation with a dual-plane silicone implant.

The surgical result is characterized by a rounder breast shape, improved position and size of the nipple and areolar complex, reshaped infra-mammary fold and enhanced breast volume.
