Q: Tubular Breasts, Lift and Augmentation Options

Submitted by Q-A from clee on Fri, 05/13/2011 - 08:10

Dear experts, I would like to know what type of operation methods you would pick for this type of breast. I assume these are tubular as there is a wide gap between, the areola is that huge and as there is only little space between the areola and the crease of the breast.

Is it possible to breastfeed with such breasts in the first place and if yes will it be possible after an operation? Also, can implants be placed so that it doesnt show, even with so little own tissue? Thank you very much!

A: Breast feeding is possible now but might be affected after surgery

Using your photos a good surgical plan might include the following:

  1. Lowering your inframammary fold
  2. Areolar reduction with periareolar incisional access for implant placement
  3. Releasing the breast tissue so that it spreads and redistrubutes evenly around the implant
  4. Submammary placement of the implant

Right now your ability to breast feed should not be affected however after surgery listed above you might not be able to as the release of breast tissues may disrupt the breast ducts.
