Tuberous breast correction
Dr. Carranza has many years of experience doing this procedure.
Breasts can fail to develop properly during puberty due to a genetical abnormality that causes the mammary tissue to stiffen, thus failing to expand as it should. This results often in small, or saggy breasts with a particular, tubular shape.
The condition can cause low milk supply in breastfeeding women, not to mention the psychological impact it can have in young, developing girls. Medical papers have noted the positive impact of treatment is immense, triggering improvements of self-esteem even when the results are not 100% perfect.
Treatment for this condition includes the addition of breast implants, the release of part of the skin tissue that is causing the initial issues, as well as reduction of the areola. All of this is generally done in the same operation.
