Women who suffer from Severe Breast Asymmetry and Tubular Breast Deformity may experience a lack of self-confidence, because it strips them of their feminine form. Breasts are a part of the female body and one should be satisfy with the body they have.

Dr. Linder, a renowned plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, operated on thousand of patients and truly understand their stories, feelings and needs. Many patients have come to Dr. Linder for his help, and all of them have been given a life changing experience.

The following patients came to Dr. Linder in need of a change. Listen to their stories and see how a simple breast reconstruction procedure can turned their lives around.

Patient 1: She has a Severe Breast Asymmetry and Tubular Breast Deformity

Breast Asymmetry and Tubluar Deformity Before and After Photos

The above 19-year-old female presents with severe breast deformity with a combination of both tubular breast deformity and severe breast asymmetry.  She 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.

Patient 2: 24 Years Old with Tubular Breast Deformity

The patient to the left presented with a slight tubular breast deformity. Tuberous breast deformity is a congenital breast anomaly that becomes manifest at the time of puberty and breast development. Her preoperative photo shows a conical appearance to the breast and a poorly defined inframammary fold along the bottom of the breast. During her consultation, she desired a more rounded breasts with fullness. After setting her expectations, we agreed to perform an augmentation mammoplasty procedure using 350cc high-profile saline breast implants.

The 24-year-old patient is now six weeks post op. As you can see by the photo, she has nice fullness and a rounded appearance.

Patient 3: Her Previous Breast Augmentations have Become Deformed and Uneven

The patient has severe Pectus Carinatum deformity of her right breast, greater than the left. She has severe pectus carinatum of the entire right lateral chest cavity, sloping laterally and posteriorly. This causes lateral displacement of the implant. There is visibility of the implant as well as a pin cushioning along the right medial breast bone or sternum. Notice the implant edge which was causing severe irritation of the sub-dermis. This patient will require Pectus Carinatum surgery via breast reconstruction. She used 600 cc style 45 extra high profile Natrelle Allergan silicone implants with a right medial open capsulotomy, meticulously releasing the capsule along the inferior parasternal ridge as well as releasing the right medial muscle. Her postoperative photograph shows six weeks postoperative status post medial open capsulotomy, inferior capsulectomy of the right breast, superior bilateral open capsulotomy and removal of the low profile 450 cc implant with replacement with 600 cc style 45 silicone gel implants as well as a right areolar reduction in order to regain symmetry with the left side.

The patient has done extraordinarily well. The patient has used compression Dr. Linder Bra for six weeks postoperative in order to maintain the medial breast pocket shape. This is extraordinarily difficult surgery. Only breast revision specialists who perform augmentation mammoplasties and breast reconstructions who are Board Certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery should be performing difficult surgery and revision breast surgeries such as the above example. The extra high profile gel reduced visibility and rippling due to its round shape and increased AP projection with decreased lateral width.
