Tubular breasts??

Tubular breasts??

Post by EmzH on 17th October 2012, 2:56 pm

Hi ladies.

I've been looking into the possilility that what i see as looking underdeveloped - especially around the outside of the breast - may be tubular.

Are there any features that would signal tubular breasts? I'm usually quite happy about going to my GP about things but this one seems to be a sticking point. I don't want to go in there and feel like i'm being laughed out of the room!

Has anyone successfully gone through their GP for this? Are there any particular points I should be making to my GP incase they seem dismissive?

Sorry for all the questions, new to all this!

It is worth going to see your GP to see if whether they can refer you, there is nothing to be ashamed of just explain your feelings to your GP.

Hi EmzH. Tuberous breast have a distinct look, I had them. If you google some pictures you will see. Tubular breasts are caused by a lack of development in the breast tissue during puberty which leads to the aesthetically bizarre malformation that can see breasts grow asymmetrically as well as been particularly droopy and unusually far apart. The base of a tuberous breast is very narrow with a long skin envelope. There are different stages of tubular breasts, I had a mild stage where I only needed implants to correct it, but most people need and uplift as well as implants for correction.

I had severe tubular breast syndrome. Mt PCT wont pay for that type of syrgery anymore so i had no choice but to go private. Worth a try, see your GP. but even with my severe condition, i was told no chance x

I have been told that i have tuberous breasts tho tbh i can't really see it myself, the only thing i seem to have is the high breast fold (that's the bit under your boob), another sign is puffy nipples and like the other ladies have said, dropping and being far apart. Deffo go to your GP tho, i'm going myself next week and I know it won't get funded but just want a bit of advice on what i should look out for in a private plastic surgeon. I've already found a surgeon that i quite like (he was the one who told me i have it).

Justpeachy I hope you don't mind me asking but what were your tuberous breasts like? Mine don't really look like any of the pics in google, i've only found one who's mine look like and i'm wondering if it's because mine is also mild x x x

Hi balamoryyellfruit, sorry I just noticed your post as I haven't been on in a while! Mine were mild and although I done the same and googled images of them, none matched but then again none are ever the same. The only way I can describe them is if you have a tea bag and you dunk it in the water and take it out, where all the tea gathers at the bottom - thats what they looked like. I had no tissue at the top and it looked like it had all slid down and gathered at the bottom in an odd shape.

I'm having surgery on Monday for mild tuberous breast deformity. I've got pointy boobs with big nipples, and hardly any tissue at the base of the breast, but they dont point down. My surgeon isn't keen to go above 200ccs due to lack of breast tissue, but I am having overs. I'm keeping a boob diary on here if you'd like to be kept up to date with whats happening there!!

Thanks so much laura110! How are you doing now? Were they quite high and tight just after? Did you have a nipple reduction too? I'm not going for one as I want to maximise chances of being able to breast feed... maybe after I've had kids haha! Sorry for all the questions!! XXX

ask as many questions as you like! I am more than happy to help! yes they were a bit high and a little pointy but they had bandaged me all up into madonna cones! the sports bra squashed them a bit and had a nice quiet xmas and wore a hoodie and i dont think they were noticable really! i am having a two stage op so getting my nipples done separately as my surgeon prefers this method, i think as long as they keep the nipple attatched it should maxximise chances of being able to breast feed and a lot of people with our condition are not able to do it anyway, i am keen to go ahead with a reduction but my breasts and nipples were quite different in size... my boobs felt fine other than a bit tender for day 1 and 2 and day 3 and 4 they hurt a bit and the scars burned but was ok with a few painkillers, i didnt even get morning boob! boobs are a tiny bit tight and felt a bit sunburnt with sore nipples but think its because of the stuff they bandages me up with! any other questions just msg me! i will defo put some stuff online but am so busy with uni and moving house at the moment!!! the whole operation and recovery were loads easier than i thought, i felt a bit rough days 3 and 4 but think it was because i had been out and about too much as it was xmas just take is very easy for a week and it will be amazing! keep me posted!
