I had felt that my breasts were different all my life. They looked weird and I hated them. My nipples were huge and puffy and my breasts were cone shaped and small. I had more nipple than breast. They only looked normal when I was cold. Women don't normally look at other women's breasts so I had no idea that mine were any different from any other woman's. I happened up a website by accident about tuberous breast deformity. I read the article and totally related to the woman who wrote it. Her breast pictures looked exactly like mine. I was horrified that I had this deformity and never knew it! I then spent several weeks reading about this condition and researching it. I read that the procedure to attempt to correct this was hard and not guaranteed. I also read that the patient probably would not get good results after surgery. It seemed only a few doctors across the US were able to do this well. Luckily there was a doctor in my area, Dr Victor Ferrari, that came highly recommended from patients as well as having many accolades. I did my homework on Dr Ferrari and set up an appointment. He was confident that he could correct my condition and had done this type of procedure in the past. Three weeks later I went in for the procedure, periareolar mastopexy and augmentation. The procedure took about 3 1/2 hours. I don't like taking medicine at all, so I only took 2 pain pills the entire time for recovery. The pain lasted about 4 weeks total. It was tolerable after about a week. I only took 2 days off work. I couldn't see my breasts for 4 weeks, my nipples had steri strips covering them so even when I showered I had no idea what the nipples were going to look like. After the steri strips came off I was ecstatic with the results. These were the breasts I had always dreamed of. I had small, flat, normal nipples!! I didn't really care about the breast size, I just really hated those nipples. I only got 270cc for the augmentation. My biggest concern was those awful nipples. I am over the moon pleased with the results. I feel like a normal woman now and not some sort of mutant. Even though no one sees them but me it has made me feel more confident about myself. I cannot thank Dr Ferrari enough for his talent and the wonderful job he did on my breasts. I could not have picked a better doctor to perform this procedure. I want to thank Dr Ferrari for giving me the confidence I have lacked all those years living with the awful breasts I had. I am a new person and I thank him and his wonderful staff from the bottom of my heart.
