Realize natural-looking breasts in Indianapolis, IN
Tuberous breasts (sometimes called tubular breasts) occur when the breast is constricted at the base as it develops. The smaller base causes the breast tissue to push forward and sometimes down. Tuberous breasts can affect a woman’s self-confidence. If you are embarrassed or self-conscious about the appearance of your breasts, Dr. Greg Chernoff can help.
If you have tuberous breasts and want to have natural-looking breast schedule your consultation with Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Indianapolis, IN.
What are Tuberous Breasts?
Tuberous breasts are the result of a congenital condition that develops in women during puberty. The degree of the condition ranges from a mild unevenness of the breasts to a more severe breast malformation. In some cases, a tuberous breast has herniated tissue pushing it against the areola, causing it to bulge or enlarge. A higher than normal inframammary fold (where the breast attaches to the chest wall) is also likely to be present, and that will further exacerbate the tube-like shape.
Women who suffer with tuberous breast exhibit some of the following characteristics:
- Very small breasts
- Breasts that are widely spaced apart
- Breasts that sit high on the chest
- Differences in the size and/or shape of the breasts (asymmetry)
- Nipples that are turned downward
- Droopy breast skin
Unfortunately, with this condition, the breast doesn’t appears in a normal round shape.
What is the Surgical Procedure for Tuberous Breasts?
The correction of the tuberous breasts is a complicated procedure often requiring multiple surgeries. Dr. Chernoff advises patients that the appropriate surgical technique for you depends on the appearance of your breast tissue. In general, the overall surgical approach is to release the constricting tissue and to insert a breast implant.
The release of the tissue widens the base of the breast, which is then maintained with the increased volume from the breast implant. The breast implant will descend slightly with time, stretching the constricted bottom of your breast tissue. A tissue expander can be used in cases of severe constriction. The implant is increased in size on a weekly basis which will gradually stretch your skin tissue.
The breast implant or tissue expander will correct the volume of the breast and stretch the base. However, further surgery may be necessary to correct the appearance of the nipple. In many cases the nipple is domed (raised from the skin and wider than normal). Surgery to this area will aim to reduce the prominence and doming of the nipple, and possibly its diameter. If you have excess skin in the area around the nipple, this can be tightened during this procedure. This will involve scars which will be located around the edge of the areola.

Prior to any surgical procedure, Dr. Chernoff recommends that all our patients read our “Patient Guide for Plastic Surgery”. The guide explains important points that all patients should think about as they are considering a surgical procedure.
