Tubular breast surgery can be one of our most challenging breast procedures as plastic surgeons. The more severe cases require significant release and scoring of the lower pole to create fullness in this area . Also the degree of herniation into the areola determines how easily the periareolar lift is to perform. Many women have mild characteristics of a tubular deformity which sounds like your situation. These cases are not true classic tubular breasts and are much easier to correct. Regardless of the degree ,it is important that your surgeon is experienced and comfortable with treating your condition. He knows what to do and what not based on previous patients. Before and after photos are helpful as well as on line forums such as Real Self. Good luck in your search.

Thank you for your question.

Tubular breasts are actually more common than women think. They present different degrees of severity. Consequently, the surgical options vary depending on whether you want the breasts larger or the same size. Most women opt for larger breasts as well as correction of the deformity. Given your description, you probably do not require  2 operations. As a pediatric and adult plastic surgeon, I frequently examine such patients. All the best, TZ

Whoever you go to I would ask to see examples of patients they have done. I would also look at photos of their standard breast augmentations as well as most doctors probably won't have a lot of before and after photos for tuberous breasts.

Tubular breast deformity?

The correction of this problem is highly individual as there are several factors that might affect the scar pattern or whether implants are required.  Photos would be helpful, but a physiccal exam would really be best to make a plan for you.

We see about ten patients a year with this relatively rare condition (it does sound like you have it), and so have substantial experience and would be delighted to see you, but there are excellent surgeons in Montreal!

The keys to success are to correct the areolar size and bulging, and to release the constricted lower part of the breasts. Implants are not essential to correct tubular breasts, but they are usually used, because tubular breasts tend to be small. Everything is done through a circular scar around the nipple.

Fat injections can help in selected cases.

Hi kyana in Montreal, QC,

There are actually many surgeons in many different locations who should be able to help you address this issue.  You can start by speaking with your doctors and asking for recommendations.  If that doesn't work take a look at surgery dot org and  You should be able to get a list of doctors that you can contact and speak to in person.

If you do an online consult, be sure to include a series of photos - I usually request five - after ascertaining that the doctor can do an online consult.  I usually request a photo from the front, each side, and each 45 degree (called a three quarter view).  You can leave your face off and you can also rest assured that the photos will remain confidential (that is, most surgeons will tell you that from the outset).

There are many different ways of correcting this.  These include implants alone, skin reduction and/or lift, or a combination.  The best procedure is usually determined by your anatomy, and is then subject to what you're willing to undergo.  A consultation with a board-certified surgeon is, therefore, recommended.

I hope that this helps, and good luck,

Dr. E

Most plastic surgeons are able to correct a tuberous breast with a breast lift and implants.  Sometimes is takes more than one procedure to get the results you are looking for.  Good luck!

Hi Kyana,

Tubular breast is usually fairly easy to correct.  There are many plastic surgeons who are experienced in this type of surgery.  Look for a plastic surgeon board who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and preferably someone who specializes in breast.  Many of us in NYC perform this type of surgery on a regular basis; there are also surgeons in Canada who specialize in breast.  Hope this helps and good luck.
