These are my before and after (8 days post op photos).

I flew from Australia to New York especially for Dr. DeLuca and because of my condition. He is a great surgeon and really knows how to treat this condition. I am healing slowly but surely and I am so glad I chose Dr. DeLuca for my surgery. It was certainly worth the distance.

I have now added photos of my 5 weeks post op. As you can see, I am healing well. I have been very patient with myself to ensure I heal correctly. I haven't resumed exercise just yet, only walking at this stage. I have been taking vitamins to assist my healing process including Vitamin A and C and Zinc.

Also for some reference I went from a A/B cup - my tuberous breasts were different sizes - and am now a cup size D. I requested a C cup but I think the breast implants always are one cup bigger as I have spoken to a few people around the world who have had surgery and they also ended up having one cup bigger than requested. You get used to them and they don't seem to big for my body at all. I weigh about 52 kilos (115 lbs?) and am 163cm tall (5'4?).

Well, it's now February and I'm still doing very well! My breasts look and feel great and am now back into strength training and yoga full-time. Some people said I may not be able to do yoga postures again, but if anything, I have regained my strength plus more. The key is to not push your body and allow it to heal properly. I really didn't exercise for 2 months after the operation, because I wanted my body the energy and time to heal as tuberous breast surgery is no doubt is major for the body to heal. I still remember New York and Dr. DeLuca fondly. What a great choice I made to improve my life. My confidence is ten fold! and I couldn't be happier.

2013 - 2 years post op!

Thought I would give an update as I am back in the States and was thinking about my surgery and experience from when I was in Albany back in 2011. I hope I can come visit Dr. DeLuca to say hi soon.

I am STILL super happy! I weigh 56 kilos now not 52 and so they suit my body great. Sometimes I get pain in them and I'm not sure what is going on.... So I just massage them and they seem to be ok after. I also have to be careful what moves I do during yoga sometimes as it does create some pain. It could be hormonal pain too. I still have some scarring but I only used scar cream for about 3 months and let them be after then. I think they look the same as after surgery, but more natural now which is what I wanted. People think they look amazing but still think they are natural so that's only a good thing.

If you were born with tuberous breasts, then Dr. DeLuca is the surgeon to see. I'm still feeling very blessed and thankful for making the choice I did 2 years ago. The only question I am left with is, "who will I see when I'm 50+ and need to get them redone and who is as good as Dr. DeLuca?!"

2015 Update!

Firstly, thank you all for your warm wishes! It's great to be surrounded by a wonderful and supportive community. I received a couple of comments the other day and realised it's been 4 years post operation! If you have any questions about the operation I suggest you contact my surgeon above as I cannot give you the technique he used. After all, I was the patient and am not a surgeon! : )

Another important point is my bra size is in fact 34DD, not 34D. I have been wearing the wrong bra these last 4 years and only discovered this recently when getting fitted.

I am interested in hearing from others who have had their tuberous breasts corrected and any discoveries you've had post op. I've discovered I need to massage my breasts regularly to keep them round. I'm not sure why this is but it might be because of all the exercise (yoga) I do that might move them around. Other than that - all is well!

4 years post op - photos!
