What to expect from Tuberous Breast surgery
Living with tuberous breasts may affect your self confidence. Finding the right surgical solution allows you to make changes that renew your confidence and restore your breasts, for an aesthetic you can feel excited about!
Dr. Somogyi combines his expertise in both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery to address shape and symmetry to address your specific needs. In some cases, surgery can be performed on the affected breast alone. In many cases, modified procedures are required on each breast. Volume correction can be addressed with a breast implant, while changes in shape can be made with a Breast Lift and/or Fat Grafting. Some patients combine these two procedures during a single surgery, but in other cases a staged approach performed over two surgeries is recommended to achieve the best possible results.
Recovery for tuberous breast correction varies significantly depending on the details of the surgery performed.
