Tubular or Tuberous breasts treatment

Tubular or tubular breasts are not always easy to recognize. One to five percent of women who come to our office for a.  breast augmentation.  are found to have tubular breasts. Tubular breasts occur when the underside of the breast lags behind in development. It is very important to recognize this congenital defect as such, because regular breast augmentation is not suitable in case of tubular breasts.

The treatment process

What is the treatment process for tubular or tubular breast treatment?


General anesthesia

Operation duration

120 – 180 minutes

Recovery time

2 – 3 weeks

Many women with tubular breasts who go to the plastic surgeon for breast augmentation only find out during the consultation that their breasts are underdeveloped. This causes the breasts to be uneven. It is very important that the plastic surgeon in question recognizes the condition, because in this case the breast correction must be performed differently than in a normal breast correction.

During the preliminary consultation prior to the plastic surgery procedure, we will discuss how the tubular breast enhancement procedure works. We will also inform you about the risks and complications that may arise. In addition, the plastic surgeon will ask you about your medical condition and any medication you may be taking.

A 100 euro consultation fee is charged for a consultation. These will be deducted from the final price of the treatment.

Correcting tubular breasts requires a different approach than enlarging normal breasts. In the case of enlarging normal breasts, placing a prosthesis is generally sufficient. In the case of tubular breasts, merely placing a prosthesis will not produce the desired results in most cases.

It is important to work on the shape of the breasts in addition to placing the prosthesis. This can be done by lowering the breast fold and cutting the glands. This creates a proportional distribution of glandular tissue. In addition, it may also be necessary to reduce the areola and relocate the nipple.

Although tubular breast surgery is more extensive than standard breast surgery, it is certainly possible to achieve a beautiful result in the case of tubular breasts. However, it is very important that the condition be recognized as such and that the tubular breast not be treated as a normal breast. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes about two hours.

After surgery, in most cases we choose to keep you overnight for observation. This way we carefully monitor your recovery and intervene immediately when necessary. Immediately after surgery your breasts may feel painful and tense. These symptoms will subside after a few days. Listen to your body: any movements you can do painlessly will not hinder your recovery.

As with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of complications with tubal breast enhancement. For example, you may experience an allergic reaction, post-bleeding or poor healing. Because of the years of experience of our surgeons and our good preparation and aftercare, the risk of complications after surgery at Clinic Blooming is very low. The complications that may occur are:


  • Wound infection
  • Scarring
  • Extra sensitive nipples
  • Post-bleeding
  • Allergic reaction

Very rare

  • Verschuiven van het implantaat
  • Visible prosthetics
  • Breast capsule formation
  • Torn implant
  • Asymmetry
  • Dissatisfied with the aesthetic result


Scars are red and swollen at first, but this usually subsides after six weeks. Keep in mind that it takes about a year to a year and a half for a scar to reach a final stage. Keep scars out of the sun and take care of them with a scar cream. At our clinic, we use Staudt scar cream.


Stop smoking at least six weeks before to six weeks after treatment. Smoking constricts blood vessels, which can cause problems with wound healing. The risk of subsequent bleeding is reduced once you stop smoking.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long the results of your tubular breast correction remain visible is different for everyone. Your breasts have been corrected, but the aging process in your body continues. This can cause your breasts to sag and droop over time. Pregnancy and fluctuations in weight also play a role.

In some cases, tubular breasts have so little mammary gland tissue that breastfeeding is impossible. If your breasts do have sufficient tissue, then placing an implant will not adversely affect your ability to produce milk. If we need to redistribute glandular tissue or move your areola during the correction, it may be detrimental to breastfeeding.

In general, the feeling in your breast remains the same. However, the area where the scar will be located may be somewhat numb. The feel of your nipple and areola may be different for the first few weeks, but this is not permanent in most cases.
