What is Tuberous Breast Correction?

Tuberous breast correction, also known as tuberous breast deformity correction, is a surgical intervention specifically tailored to address the unique characteristics of tuberous breasts. This condition is congenital and is characterized by underdeveloped breast tissue with a narrow base, a higher than normal breast fold, and herniation of breast tissue into the areola, resulting in a constricted and tubular appearance of the breasts. The goal of tuberous breast correction surgery is to reshape and reposition the breast tissue, release constricted areas, reposition the areola, and, in some cases, utilize breast implants to achieve a more natural and symmetrical breast appearance. By addressing these specific features, the procedure aims to enhance breast shape, improve symmetry, and restore a more aesthetically pleasing and balanced breast contour for individuals affected by tuberous breast deformity.
