What Should I Expect During Tuberous Breast Correction?

If you’re considering tuberous breast correction surgery, you can start the process by having a consultation with Dr. Stephens. During this meeting, the doctor will evaluate your situation and ask you about what you’d like to achieve with the procedure. If you decide to move forward, he will then work with you to create a unique treatment plan that’s specific to your needs and goals.

Generally, tuberous breast correction surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. To begin, you will most likely be administered general anesthesia to render you temporarily unconscious. After that, the specific steps will depend on your treatment plan. Typically, Dr. Stephens will make small incisions around the edge of the areolas.

He will then make the needed adjustments, which may include lowering the inframammary folds, removing excess or abnormal breast tissue, inserting customized breast implants, lifting the breasts, and reducing the size of the areolas.

Once Dr. Stephens has completed the adjustments to your breasts, he will close the incisions with sutures and apply bandages to the breasts. In total, the surgery usually takes between two and three hours to complete.

Recovery After Tuberous Breast Correction?

After your tuberous breast correction surgery, you may need to wear a surgical support bra for the first week or so. You will also need to spend about a week resting before you return to work and resume your routine. During this time, most patients experience some swelling, bruising, and tenderness. You should avoid strenuous physical activity for approximately four to six weeks after your procedure.
