Tubular Breast With Augmentation
I was presented with a female patient who requested breast augmentation surgery along with correcting what she called her “constricted breast.” During her examination, I found that she had a condition called tubular breast deformity. Tuberous breasts or tubular breasts are a result of a congenital abnormality. After listening to her goals, we agreed to her expectation and scheduled her surgery date.
During her surgery, I released and removed the constricted breast tissue. I selected the moderate plus saline implants for its wide base and the least amount of anterior/posterior projection. I used 360 cc implants and overfilled the left to 410 cc and the right to 400 cc to achieve a nice balance.
The photo on the right is eight months post-surgery, and she is very happy with the shape and fullness of her breasts.
