Tuberous Breast Correction
Sydney’s leading surgeon for constricted and tuberous breast procedures
Treating many patients from around Australia every year, Dr Miroshnik is Sydney’s respected surgeon for tuberous breast correction surgery. Tuberous (also known as ‘snoopy’, ‘tubular’ or constricted) breasts are breasts that are misshaped, having grown in an unusual way due to the presence of a constricting ring of tissue at their base.
The constriction leads to deficient horizontal +/- vertical development of the breast and may lead to areolar enlargement. The condition itself is often inherited and usually affects the breasts asymmetrically, the estimated incidence being anywhere between 1-5% of the female population.
Unlike regular breast reshaping and 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.
To do this, Dr Miroshnik, will often use a periareolar approach for this operation and uses a number of highly specialised techniques to achieve the most natural results possible.
