Breast Asymmetry and Tubular Breast Deformity
SEVERE BREAST ASYMMETRY AND TUBULAR BREAST DEFORMITY COMBINED
The above 19-year-old female presents with severe breast deformity with a combination of both tubular breast deformity and severe breast asymmetry. This is an excellent case example of how tubular breast and asymmetry can be reconstructed safely with a single stage operation. The above patient has a 34A breast on the left and 34AA breast on the right with grade 2 ptosis and severe constricted tubular breast deformity of the right. The three obvious components include pseudo-herniation of breast tissue into the nipple areolar complex, poorly defined inframammary fold and complete flattening along the lower pole of her breast. She is now two months post-surgical having undergone augmentation mammoplasty procedure with a 310 cc saline implant placed on the right and a 290 cc saline implant placed on the left. She also has had retroareolar breast tissue removed from the right inferior nipple areolar complex to smooth out and flattened the protruded shape of her right nipple areolar complex. At eight weeks, frontal view shows excellent symmetry, great cleavage, reasonable positioning of the right nipple areolar complex in comparison with the left side, smoothing and flattening of the right periareolar incision and a nice rounding shape along the right inframammary fold. She is extremely happy with the results which will continue to settle over the next three to four months. She is now wearing underwire bras and supportive athletic bras at night during sleep.
Again, this is an excellent reconstructive example of combined breast asymmetry and tubular breast deformity, which can be easily and safely reconstructed under one surgical procedure.
