Tuberous Breast Deformity Correction in Newport Beach, Orange County
Correction and Reconstruction of Severe Tuberous Breast Deformity
This 16 year old female presented to Orange County Plastic Surgery with her parents with severe tuberous breast deformity. On examination, the patient was found to have asymmetrical breasts with characteristics of tuberous breast deformity. These include, tubular breast shape, large nipple areola complex, nipple areola herniation, and a constricted breast base. In consultation with her parents, a 2-stage approach was planned for the patient.
The first stage involved placement of a tissue expander, reduction of the nipple areola complex, and a peri-areolar breast lift. After the first stage, the patient underwent in office expansions of her tissue expander to a final size of 550 cc to stretch her breast skin. During a second stage, the patient underwent replacement of her expanders with 550 cc silicone implants and had another peri-areolar lift. The patient will benefit from a formal breast lift to elevate her nipple areola higher, but she is very satisfied with her current results. Post-operative pictures are taken at 6 months after her second surgery.
