Tuberous breast surgery

Tuberous breasts are a congenital condition which results in irregular shaped breasts

The condition can cause either one or both breasts to take on a tubular or constricted appearance. The good news is this condition can be easily treated by a surgeon with the right skill set. The result is greater confidence and a natural and aesthetically-pleasing result.

A consultation is the first step in understanding what tuberous breast correction will cost you. There are several factors that need to be considered, including your goals and anaesthetist, surgeon and hospital fees. Since tuberous breasts are a congenital condition, the procedure may attract a Medicare rebate. Dr Raja will take you through the Medicare requirements during your consultation and provide you with a final cost for your surgery.

This surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, requires a general anaesthetic and takes about two to three hours to complete. To correct the breasts, soft implants are placed inside the breast pocket. However, in some instances, before both breasts can look the same, tissue expanders will need to be inserted to increase the size of the breast pocket. This needs to be done gradually, which means several procedures may be required. The type of incision that’s used and where the implants are placed will be discussed during your initial consultation. Once the implants are inserted, the incisions are closed and a dressing is applied. Patients are then moved to a recovery room for several hours.

One to two hours after your surgery, you will need someone to drive you home. From there, you will need to spend about a week at home to recover. Even though there will be some discomfort and swelling, it will be moderate and pain medication will be available to you. Patients will be required to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling after their correction surgery. Any strenuous exercise and activities will need to be avoided for at least six weeks. You will also need to be patient with your results. In most instances, you will need to wait three to six months before you will see the final results of your surgery.

It’s very rare for serious complications to occur after tuberous breast correction. There are some minor general risks to be aware of such as infection but this can be avoided. Other complications that could occur are asymmetry and numbness but these effects are mostly temporary – your body needs an appropriate amount of time to heal. Dr Sawhney will take you through all the potential risks and complications and provide you with detailed aftercare instructions.
