Our Sydney based tuberous breast surgery is a highly personalised augmentation or reduction procedure. Different cases of this congenital deformity can be very specific and very challenging and truly reconstructive and our Sydney based OncoPlastic and Cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Yunaev, provides a tailored plan for each patient to achieve their desired improvements.
The correction process for a patient with tuberous breasts requires a careful assessment by Dr. Yunaev to analyse your breast development and understand the deficiencies that require correction or improvement.
What can tuberous breast surgery do for me?
Different techniques can be used for the correction of tuberous breasts, and most procedures will involve glandular remodelling. Methods may include a breast lift to address a nipple that is not at a satisfactory level. If the areola size is too large, this can also be treated as part of the surgery. If the patient’s breast hasn’t fully developed, a breast augmentation with use of a breast implant may be utilised. Additionally, it is common that a tuberous breast is also asymmetrical, sometimes quite drastically, so different techniques may be used on each breast to achieve a symmetrical and harmonious result.
Typically this surgery also involves a release of a constricting ring of tissue to help redistribute breast tissue in a more natural way. This helps to give the breast a more natural look. For many people, tuberous breasts can be a source of embarrassment and cause a lack of confidence when in swim or underwear. This procedure helps to rectify this, giving women a greater sense of self-esteem and love for their body.
Before you decide on a tuberous breast correction surgery, there are some critical issues to keep in mind:
- If breast implants are needed, patients need to be aware that they are not guaranteed to last a lifetime and future surgery may be required to replace one or both implants
- Smokers are at increased risk of complications from any surgery. If you are serious about undergoing cosmetic surgery, you should try to quit smoking
- Surgeons generally recommend waiting until breast development has completed before undertaking tuberous breast surgery
- If an aesthetic breast reduction technique will be used to correct tuberous breast, this may occasionally interfere with some diagnostic procedures
- Ability to breastfeed following tuberous breast correction surgery may be affected. Talk to your surgeon if you are planning to breastfeed a baby in the future
- Changes in the breasts during pregnancy, or significant weight loss or gain can alter the outcomes of previous tuberous breast correction surgery
- Breast and nipple piercings can cause an infection
Are you a good candidate?
A tuberous breast correction surgery may be a good option for you if:
- You are physically healthy
- You have realistic expectations
- You have been diagnosed with tuberous breasts
- Remember that the shape and size of your breasts before surgery will influence the surgical procedure and the outcome.

All procedures performed by Dr. Michael Yunaev, including tuberous breast augmentation are carefully tailored to each patient’s individual needs. Therefore, the results may vary depending on the patient’s situation before surgery and goals.
Understanding Tuberous Breasts
For those looking to understand if they do in fact have tuberous breasts, they feature a very specific shape that has a pointed, narrow or puffy appearance. The rounded or teardrop shapes of breasts are developed post-puberty; however, tuberous breasts refrain from achieving this look.
The base of the breasts is often narrow, seeming constricted with nipples that are out of proportion. There is minimal glandular breast tissue creating a drooped appearance to the breasts.
The classification system for tuberous breasts will determine whether breast augmentation, asymmetry correction, or various other surgical adjustments will be required. Tuberous Breast Deformities can be grouped with hypoplasia in one of the following ways:
- Type I affecting the lower medial quadrant
- Type II affecting the lower medial and lateral quadrants with a sufficient amount of skin in the subareolar region
- Type III affecting the lower medial and lateral quadrants with a deficiency of skin in the subareolar region
- Type IV which features severe breast constriction with minimal breast base
What has likely been the cause?
The cause of tuberous breasts and who may be affected by it is somewhat unclear. While we understand the changes that occur which create tuberous breasts, we do not know why it happens. If the fascia or fibrous tissue that develops between the chest skin and Pectoralis Major muscle is excessively tight, the development of the breast base will be restricted. This creates a narrow look in the lower part of the breast.
In some cases, the fascia beneath the areola and nipple is very weak. If the fascia around the margins of the developing breast is strong, the breast tissue will be pushed into a small area behind the nipple giving a puffy appearance. This can lead to an underdeveloped breast that remains small in size. It is also important to note that each breast can be affected differently, explaining why one may be more severe than the other.
Mild Tuberosity in Tubular Breasts
In some cases, only a mild-type of tuberous breast may be present. If this is the case and a fair amount of breast tissue exists, an implant based procedure may be a good solution. This may differ slightly from a standard Breast Augmentation as it involves a lowering and reshaping of the fold beneath the breast. This process should correct the connection shape of the breast to the chest while lessening the gap between the breasts, increasing the inframammary fold.
Severe Tuberous Breasts
Pronounced or severe cases of tuberous breast development are unlikely to be rectified by a single breast implant alone. The situation may even see breast tissue envelope near the nipple, which is not wide enough for a breast implant. The breast may need to be reshaped surgically to achieve the desired result. In some of these cases, adding an implant slightly wider than the existing breast can achieve the desired outcome when the pocket of the breast is shaped with a lowering and reshaping the inframammary crease. This should result in a much more visually pleasing rounded breast. Excess skin or tissue will be trimmed to create a new skin envelope with the nipple being moved in some cases.
