Who is a good candidate?
Correcting tubular breasts is not a simple procedure. Dr. Gurley's Board Certification in Plastic Surgery has given her the surgical principals needed to treat this potentially complex condition. Your breasts will be altered, if needed, three dimensionally, taking into account the width, projection, and length of the breast and skin envelope. This is a great opportunity to also correct breast size or misshapen areolas. You will enjoy a more round, full and natural appearing breast not only naked but in clothes as well.
Following the surgery, you may need a day or two of rest, at which point most patients will return to their normal activities. We recommend that you refrain from running, jogging or any strenuous exercise for 4-6 weeks after the surgery. You will be able to shower right after the surgery. All stiches are dissolvable, and we will provide all the supportive garments needed for your recovery.
You may want to consider this procedure if:
You have been diagnosed with tuberous breasts, breast asymmetry, or unusually shaped breasts. Most patients with this condition have other underlying abnormalities such as droopy breasts, breasts that are uneven, areola enlargement, and fatty deposits near the armpit. Very rarely this condition is associated with Poland’s Syndrome, which is a congenital absence of the upper extremity musculoskeletal components.
Real Artistic Outcomes
Dr. Gurley's years of experience means that she can work with you to determine the best course of action for your tubular breast condition. There are no two patients alike when it comes to tubular or congenital deformities, so it's critical to have experience to be able to tailor surgery for each patient. The outcome results in not only improved physical appearance but also an improvement in self-image, confidence, and well-being.
