For many women, developing breasts is an essential part of femininity. However, some girls might develop abnormal breast tissue during puberty due to rare genetics. This can result in tubular breasts that lack tissue and are noticeably misshapen and unnaturally elevated. Despite the condition not posing any risks to your physical well-being, you may consider the irregular shape of tuberous breasts to be emotionally distressing.
In these cases, tubular breast surgery in Eugene is the standard treatment option for adding natural-looking volume and shape to the chest. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lee B. Daniel skillfully customizes each treatment approach based on the severity of your case and ideal final results. If you struggle with self-image due to tubular breasts, contact the compassionate team at Aesthetic Plastic surgery to schedule a consultation for breast surgery.
Tubular breasts, also known as tuberous breasts or breast hypoplasia, are a congenital condition resulting in unusually strong and thick connective tissue within the breasts. The effects can range from mild to severe. Some of the most notable symptoms of breast hypoplasia include prominent breast asymmetry and oblong breast shape. In addition, there is often an increased distance between the breasts of at least one and a half inches or more. Tuberous breasts also often cause more drastic breast sagging, enlarged or puffy areolas, and strained or collapsed areolas due to insufficient tissue growth. In rare instances, men with persistently enlarged breast tissue, a condition known as gynecomastia, may also develop tubular breasts.
Though tuberous breasts do not affect your general health, the condition often leads to moderate or severe effects on psychological wellness by negatively impacting self-esteem, body image, and confidence. This could then have an impact on your romantic relationships, mood, and overall quality of life. Corrective surgery for tuberous breasts with Dr. Daniel in our Eugene office could significantly improve these areas, thereby boosting your self-confidence and making you feel more comfortable in your skin.
Currently, the best option for improving the appearance of breast hypoplasia in Eugene is corrective surgery with a highly-trained plastic surgeon. Some tubular breast operations occur in several stages. Typically the first stage begins with a procedure to relieve the excess tension of constricted breast tissue. This is followed by the insertion of tissue expanders or breast implants. Patients who receive tissue expanders will need another operation in two to three weeks to replace them with implants.
Corrective surgery may also include breast lift and nipple reshaping techniques. Alternatively, tubular breast surgery for men is similar to gynecomastia corrective surgery, as it involves breast reduction methods to remove the affected tissue, fat, and skin to flatten the chest. Since tuberous breast development is complex and the symptoms can vary drastically, having a meticulous surgeon such as Dr. Daniel is paramount in having a well-proportioned and visually appealing result.
If breast tissue fails to grow sufficiently during puberty, irregularly shaped breasts can form that might leave you feeling embarrassment about your appearance. Thankfully, with tubular breast surgery in Eugene, Dr. Lee B. Daniel can repair the appearance of your breasts and the negative impact they have had on your self-esteem.
