Q: Best Procedure to Fix Ptosis and Tubular Breasts?

Submitted by Q-A from clee on Fri, 05/13/2011 - 11:55

My breasts were always very tubular and oddly shaped. I dealt with weight gain and loss throughout high school (Bs to DDs). I want pre-consultation insight from a few doctors or patients that are familiar with the different types of surgeries available, mainly the ones best suited.

How hard is it to fix my ptosis, skin sagging, over large nipples and tubular breasts? $ is not an option when it comes to my body. What ways can I combat scarring being that I'm bi-racial? I am 5'10 145 lbs 20y/o

A: You have a mild form of tubular breasts

You a mild tubular breast form with what appears on your photo to be a good tissue envelope. Lowering your inframammary fold through a periareolar approach with circumareolar mastopexy and areolar reduction is a good plan.

Furthermore, placement of a submammary cohesive gel implant will likely yeild better shape with less chance of the waterfall or late double bubble look from descent of the breast. You should use silicone scar sheeting on the surface of your healing incisions to lower the risk of a poor scar outcome.
