Breast Augmentation for Tubular Breasts
Many people feel self-conscious about their appearance for different reasons. When it comes to the appearance of their breasts, tubular breasts can pose a number of issues. In such cases, Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau have helped numerous women in and around Halifax, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island by performing breast augmentation.
The team at the Landings Surgical Centre would like to discuss what tubular breasts are and how they can best be treated. Getting breast implants may be the treatment you’ve been waiting for.
What Are Tubular Breasts?
Also referred to as tuberous breasts and breast hypoplasia, tubular breasts are breasts that do not fully develop during puberty. Rather than being round and full, tuberous breasts tend to appear elongated, conical, and immature. There may be constriction at the breast tissue near the chest, causing droopiness and poor overall shape. The nipples and areolas may appear extremely puffy as well.
The exact cause of tubular breasts has yet to be determined, though the condition may be the result of problems that occur while a fetus is developing in the womb. The condition can affect one or both breasts.
Why Breast Augmentation Is a Good Option
Breast augmentation surgery can help add fullness to breasts that are tubular. For women with one tubular breast, the procedure is essential for achieving symmetry and enhancing overall appearance. There are different breast implants available, and the procedure can be tailored to the patient to ensure optimal outcomes and natural results.
Ideal Candidates for Breast Augmentation
The best candidates for breast augmentation are women who have tubular breasts who feel extremely self-conscious about their appearance. They should be in good overall health and not suffer from any medical conditions that would make the surgery a risk to their wellness.
During your consultation at our Halifax plastic surgery centre, we will go over the risks and benefits of the procedure with you in full detail so you can make a fully informed decision about surgery and whether or not it is the best option for you.
Picking the Right Implant Type and Size
Picking the right kind of breast implant is crucial for achieving ideal cosmetic results. Yet many patients wonder what an ideal size is, and whether they should pick silicone or saline breast implants.
While developing a treatment plan for you, we can go over the pros and cons of various breast implant options. We can also discuss the incision locations and the potential for scarring after surgery so you have a good understanding of what to expect.
The Results of Breast Augmentation Surgery
The results of breast augmentation can be dramatic. Women with tubular breasts will instead have fuller, more ideally shaped breasts thanks to the use of implants. Thanks to the improvements to body contour and bust appearance, these women will no longer feel extremely self-conscious about wearing certain tops, bathing suits, or undergarments.
