Each patient’s breasts must be evaluated carefully as they are all different, and all the features required need to be addressed. The breast may be enlarged using a carefully chosen breast implant or alternatively using fat grafting. A breast tightening procedure is then often performed using a scar around the areola. The goal is to tighten the breast to stop the tissue bulging through the areola.
HOW IS A TUBEROUS BREAST CORRECTED?
Surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic usually with an overnight stay in hospital. Surgical tapes are used along the scars, and you will wake up wearing a supportive post-surgical bra.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TUBEROUS BREAST CORRECTION?
The development of tuberous breasts can have profound psychological effects on those who develop them and a good correction makes a huge difference to self confidence and self-esteem. A variety of procedures have been described to correct them, and Mr Pacifico has a particular interest in this surgery. The aim is to try to correct the shape in one operation, but occasionally further procedures might be required (at extra cost).
HOW LONG DOES TUBEROUS BREAST SURGERY TAKE?
Surgery takes around 2-3-hours.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD AFTER TUBEROUS BREAST SURGERY?

HOW LONG BEFORE GETTING BACK TO NORMAL?
It is important to avoid strenuous activity for at least 2-weeks after surgery, but you should be able to get back to all sporting activity by around 6-weeks. You should wait until 2-weeks after surgery before driving.
WHAT ARE THE SUCCESS RATES OF TUBEROUS BREAST CORRECTION?
