What kind of surgery would be required & how much would it cost to fix my breasts? Lift, augmentation, areola reduction (Photo)
Doctor Answers 5
It is a bit hard to tell from a single photo, but you may have tuberous breasts. Surgery usually involves a combination of breast implants and lift. This can be complicated and you should see a plastic surgeon with expertise and experience in this surgery. Looking at surgeons websites should give you some idea if they have this.
And also, there are many excellent plastic surgeons in NZ!

I appreciate your question.
Cost varies by geographic location, surgeon expertise, OR time, anesthesia, length of procedure etc. I would recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in your area who specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery and who is also a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgery. You can call their offices in advance and ask for quotes prior to scheduling consultations.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

Your breasts are ptotic (drooping) but not tubular. If you grab your breasts, that will be the volume of your lifted breasts, when just the excess skin is removed. The areola will be made smaller at the same time. The breasts can be made larger with an implant behind the muscle. Costs can vary greatly.

Thank you for your question. I'm not aware that any one plastic surgeon is better than another in terms of correcting tubular breast deformity, as long as they are Board-certified and do a lot of breast surgery. I would try to get a few different referrals and consultations arranged. You are young to be considering breast lift surgery because it can interfere with nipple sensation, but to accomplish your goals I think that's what you'd need to consider. I would also recommend a small-moderate breast implant to give you the fullness at the upper portions of the breast and some better cleavage. Best wishes.
