Tubular breasts (also called tuberous breasts) are breasts that have not developed normally. Instead of a wide base that allows for breasts to become round, tubular breasts have a very narrow base and maintain that narrow size, but may be long often with enlarged or puffy nipples. Women with tubular breasts do not just have small breasts, they have breasts with an unusual shape that commonly leads to self-consciousness or even social isolation.
But if tubular breasts are making you feel uncomfortable and are affecting your ability to be involved socially or romantically, there is a solution. Breast implants can be used to improve the size and shape of tubular breasts. You can have breasts that are normal in size and shape.
But before you have breast augmentation to improve your tubular breasts, you should remember that correcting them is not the same operation as breast augmentation performed on more commonly-shaped breasts. As a result of their different development process, tubular breasts have muscle and other tissue connections that must be addressed to allow your breasts to assume a normal shape after breast augmentation. Before getting your tubular breasts corrected, talk to your plastic surgeon about his experience with tubular breasts.
New York plastic surgeon Dr. George Lefkovits has extensive experience in breast augmentation, including the correction of tubular breasts. During your consultation, he can show you women with breasts similar to yours and talk about their experience and results, and talk to you about the results you may experience.
