Tuberous breasts
The operation

The operation consists of reducing the size of the areola, incorporating breast volume through an implant that is usually round, although it can also be anatomical and free the fibrous rings that constrain the expansion of the breast in its four quadrants.

The incisions that are usually made are around the areola, taking advantage of them to reduce their size. The intervention is performed under general anesthesia and hospitalization can be overnight. The use of breast prostheses is usually quite frequent to correct the deformity. In this case, they are usually placed immediately under the glandular tissue so that through the expansion produced by the prosthesis, the breast adopts a more natural shape.
