What Happens During Tuberous Breast Correction
For your comfort and safety, tuberous breast correction will be performed under general anesthesia. During the surgery, I place a numbing solution in your breasts so you will not feel pain even though you are under anesthesia.
Tubular breast correction surgery sometimes happens in two separate surgeries, but for most of my patients, I can do it in one. The surgery may take 5 to 6 hours depending on complexity, anatomy, and incision. I will make an around the areola and then create a precise pocket for the implant. I take extreme care to be very gentle and to keep the pocket clean with little to no bleeding during tuberous breast correction. Internal fibers are carefully cut and the breast tissues are shaped to make them look more round. I create and test the pocket using a temporary sizer which is a replica of the implant used for adjustments, and then when both pockets are symmetric and perfect, the entire field will be re-prepped for final implant placement. The implants will be placed using a no-touch technique. After the implants are placed, the periareolar lift will be performed where excess areola and breast skin is removed and then lifted, re-shaped, and re-sized and the breast is contoured to create a rounder, perkier shape.
The final incision closure around the areola is done precisely and meticulously to create the best possible scar. As a woman who had a less than ideal first implant surgery and then struggled with complications after my revision – I understand firsthand how important this surgery is. I take extreme pride in my attention to detail with every single step of tuberous breast correction surgery.
