Breasts come in all shapes and sizes. One shape of breasts are tubular breasts, a congenital deformity that can result in narrow, longer breasts. While tubular breast deformity does not pose a health risk, some women with this condition are self-conscious of the shape and size of their breasts and nipples. Dr. Christine Blaine at Blaine Plastic Surgery is a top breast plastic surgeon in New York who offers tubular breast deformity surgery at our clinics in New York City, Staten Island and Huntington.
Tubular breast deformity presents with a narrow base for the breasts, with narrow breasts that can tend to sag or droop even in young patients. The areolas are often larger, and the nipple can be puffy. Women with tubular breast deformity can struggle to find bras that fit correctly. Breast augmentation and nipple cosmetic surgery can transform the size and shape of the breasts, creating the desired proportions for the patient.
Augmentation for Tubular Breasts
To reshape the breasts, augmentation with breast implants can be an excellent solution. The implants can create rounder, fuller breasts. Depending on the patient, the implant procedure may need to be completed with a breast lift or nipple correction to create the desired profile and overall appearance desired.
Although implants are added to change the shape of the breast, this doesn’t mean the breasts need to be large. Dr. Blaine helps each patient choose a size and shape of breast that will create the desired curves for their body. Some women choose to increase the size of their breast significantly during tubular breast deformity surgery, while others only want rounded breasts that are close to the same size.
Breast shape can have an impact on your curves and confidence.
