    Tubular Breast Surgery in Ipswich, Suffolk

    Tubular breast surgery in Ipswich, Suffolk, is an option for anyone with tubular breasts. With this condition, breast tissue doesn’t develop properly, leaving breasts looking empty in the lower pole and often with enlarged, puffy nipples.

    It’s common for this type of breasts to be asymmetric and oval or pointed in shape, which many women find detrimental to their self-esteem. Our expert surgeons offer tubular breast surgery in Ipswich, Suffolk, to those wanting to find their inner confidence with a new shape and silhouette.

    What to Expect From Tubular Breast Surgery

    When it comes to tubular breast surgery, there’s no “one size fits all” solution. The exact method depends on the severity of the case and your desired look, which we will discuss in your initial consultation.

    For some women, we use a combination of implants and specialist augmentation techniques designed to release and stretch the natural tissue. For others, a breast lift is the best way to achieve your desired look without using implants. Your surgeon will discuss all the options with you to find the best solution for your natural shape.

    Tubular breast surgery in Ipswich takes place under general anaesthetic and lasts around 1-1.5 hours. Your surgeon will need to make incisions, which are then closed with stitches. We’d recommend taking at least a week off work for recovery and you’ll need to wear compression garments after the operation to help with healing.

    Causes of Tubular Breasts in Ipswich, Suffolk

    Tubular breasts, also known as constricted breasts or breast hypoplasia, is an abnormality that affects the shape of a woman’s breasts. The cause of this condition is largely unknown and the signs often aren’t visible until you hit puberty.

    As the breasts begin to grow, there’s a lack of development of the breast tissue, which causes a droopy appearance. Some women find tubular breasts occur on both sides, while others only experience it on one side. The severity of tubular boobs ranges from mild to severe but it often has a knock-on effect on people’s self-esteem.

    Aftercare for Tuberous Breast Correction Surgery in Ipswich, Suffolk

    All operations pose a degree of risk, and tubular breast surgery in Ipswich, Suffolk is no different. The most common risks and side effects are:

    • Scarring
    • Pain and discomfort
    • Swelling and/or bruising
    • Haematoma (bleeding within the breast tissue)
    • Breast infection

    For the best chance of a quick and straightforward recovery, we advise against any strenuous activity for at least six weeks following surgery. Rest as much as you can in the first few days and try sleeping upright to help reduce the swelling. We’ll prescribe medication to ease any pain and make you as comfortable as possible.

    Your surgeon will give you comprehensive aftercare advice for your tubular breast surgery in Ipswich, Suffolk. We also encourage you to book a follow-up appointment to ensure the recovery process is going as planned.

    • What are Tubular Breasts?

      Tubular breasts is a condition where breast tissue does not form properly during puberty, causing a gap between the breasts, an enlarged or darker areola, and-or constricted nipples. However, it is not medically-concerning and generally means your breasts are a different shape than others.

    • Is Tubular Breast Surgery the Same as Breast Augmentation?

      Tubular breast surgery and breast augmentation are similar, but follow different needs. Breast augmentation focuses on a number of aspects, such as size, whereas tubular breast surgery is centred around correcting your breast shape.

    • What Procedures are Commonly Performed During Tubular Breast Surgery?

      The procedure you choose depends wholly on your needs. You may choose breast implants to correct the size and shape, a breast or nipple lift, or a breast reduction. We will discuss your concerns and the relevant surgeries during your consultation.
