Two-stage correction of tuberous breasts.


Two-stage correction of tuberous breasts is illustrated and probably indicated to attain a more aesthetically pleasing result in this unusual deformity. Routine augmentation mammaplasty corrects the base defects of vertical and horizontal contraction treating an appropriately placed breast mound. However, ptosis of the nipple-areola complex becomes obvious, and correction with creation of a new skin brassiere is necessary. Merely telescoping the breast tissue into the nipple-areola complex has not always produced a satisfactory long-lasting result. Subsequently, a true ptosis procedure on that breast deformity after augmentation mammaplasty has yielded the most aesthetically pleasing long-term results.
