Tuberous Breast

Tuberous Breast Surgery

Tuberous breast deformity has had many names, including constricted breast, tubular breast, and ‘snoopy breast’. Unlike regular breast reshaping or breast augmentation, with tuberous breasts, it is important to release the constricting ring of tissue as well as redistribute the existing breast tissue in a natural way to promote better breast shape and associated implant coverage.



Correction of tuberous breast deformity is one of the most challenging aspects of aesthetic breast surgery, and often requires multi-staged surgery to get the optimal result desired.

  • In mild cases, where the breast is small, a breast augmentation with an implant may solve the problem. A mastopexy is usually added to correct the breast herniation and enlarged areola at the same time.
  • In severe cases, where the patient has little breast skin / volume, a staged procedure is used. A tissue expander is initially inserted to recruit extra tissue along with scoring of the tight breast tissue. In the second procedure a permanent implant is inserted and mastopexy is performed.
  • In women with large breast with a high fold, correction can be accomplished by a breast reduction procedure with release of the constriction of the inframammary fold.
