Breast surgery procedures are sought by people all over the country who are looking to achieve an improved appearance of their breasts. With the popularization of breast implants and breast lifts, what people may not realize is that breast surgery can also aid in improving the appearance of tuberous or asymmetrical breasts.
At Gaines Plastic Surgery, Dr. Greg Gaines draws from his over 15 years of experience in plastic surgery and understanding of the importance of feeling good in your own skin to provide patients with high-quality breast procedures, allowing them to feel more confident in their bodies. Dr. Gaines proudly offers breast surgeries to correct tuberous breasts and asymmetry. To learn more about these procedures, read our FAQ below.
What Are Tuberous Breasts?
Some people are born with a congenital abnormality that involves unusually thick and strong connective tissue in the body. Sometimes this tissue can cause complications and change or even stunt the growth of some parts of the body during puberty. When it comes to breasts, this thick connective tissue can cause both breasts to grow differently, leaving one looking different from the other. Some qualities of tuberous breasts can include a lack of skin around the areola, outward-protruding areola, less rounded breast tissue, and misshapenness.
What Is Breast Asymmetry?
Breast asymmetry is when one part of the breast appears differently than the other breast whether it be in size or position. This asymmetry will usually affect the quality of life of people as the unevenness of the breasts can lead to chronic back pain or insecurity. Oftentimes, this condition is not serious and is mostly corrected for cosmetic purposes. However, in serious cases, asymmetrical breasts can be a sign of breast cancer. Mammograms are often used to determine whether or not breasts are asymmetrical.
How Can Breast Tuberous Breast and Breast Asymmetry Be Treated?
As an expert in plastic surgery with many years of experience in his field, Dr. Gaines is able to offer patients interested in breast correction options between breast reductions, breast augmentations, or breast lifts to provide a more symmetrical appearance to the breast. Achieving evenness and symmetry between two breasts will not only help relieve chronic pain but may also contribute to patient happiness and self-confidence.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Surgery?
If you are someone who is bothered by the asymmetry of your breasts or are experiencing chronic bodily pain due to the uneven weight of your breasts, breast surgery may be the most beneficial procedure for you. Ideal candidates are those who are in overall good health, do not have underlying health conditions, and have realistic expectations about the results of their procedures.
If you are currently pregnant, breastfeeding, have cancer or have had abnormal results from your most recent mammogram, breast surgery may not be suitable for you.
While breast surgery will not change the overall structure of your whole body, the correction that our procedures can provide often leaves patients happier, healthier, and more confident about the way they look.
