Service Description

The treatment of tubular or tuberous (tube-shaped), caprine or constricted breasts often includes a previous modification of the gland by surgical redistribution, elimination of areolar tissueexcess and placement of breast implants, through incision around the areolas.

During teenage period and women’s growth, due to an alteration in the development, it can happen that the tissue that covers the mammary gland presents an excessive rigidity and does not expand adequately together with the progressive growth of the mammary gland. This situation can cause the gland as it grows and feels imprisoned in the skin that does not expand. It has the tendency to herniate and leave the place with less resistance, which is the thin skin of the nipple. Some breasts can be larger or most of the time smaller and it can present a series of characteristics: large Areolas, herniation of the gland through the areola, and high and narrow submammary groove.

The treatment of tubular or tuberous (tube-shaped), caprine or constricted breasts often includes a previous modification of the gland by surgical redistribution, elimination of areolar tissueexcess and placement of breast implants, through incision around the areolas. If the areola is too large, it can be corrected with the same incision. In the case of large tuberous breasts, we treat it through incisions similar to a mastopexy or mammary hypertrophy.

In most cases the deformation is accompanied by a lack of gland development and it is usually necessary to place prosthesis under the breast tissue or the pectoral muscle to fill, give volume and improve the shape.

Estimated surgery time: 2 to 3 hours.

Estimated recovery time: 8 to 10 days.
