While tuberous breasts won’t threaten your physical health, many women report the condition causes mental distress. 

Fortunately, there are ways to correct tuberous breasts, and the board-certified plastic surgeons at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery are leading experts in the Denver area. Dr. Christopher Williams and Dr. Jeremy Williams have extensive experience with some of the most advanced breast surgery techniques. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your tuberous breasts, read on to learn how we can help.

How Do You Fix Tuberous Breasts?

When it comes to tuberous breast correction, there are several ways to achieve a lifted, rounder shape. Procedures that help are:

  • Implant-based breast augmentationThis is one of the most popular ways to correct tuberous breasts since it allows women to choose the size, shape, and profile they want. 
  • Fat grafting breast augmentation: Some women prefer not to have a medical device like breast implants. In this case, fat grafting can take excess adipose tissue from your hips, thighs, and buttocks and reinsert it into your breasts for a moderate increase in size and fullness.
  • Breast lift (mastopexy)If you’re happy with your current size but want a rounder appearance, a breast lift can release constricted tissue and reshape your chest to counteract the drooping common with tuberous breasts. 

The right surgery for you will depend on your desired results and the severity of your tubular breast condition. Some patients get the best results from a combined breast lift and augmentation. Our surgeons can tell you what type of outcome to expect from each procedure at a consultation.

Is There a Way to Correct Tubular Breasts Without Surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is currently the only way to correct tuberous breasts, with fat grafting being the less invasive option. If you’re daunted by the idea of having a procedure, our patient-focused providers are happy to answer any questions as you consider your options.
