Tuberous breasts (or tubular breasts) are a result of an abnormality of the breasts that can occur in both men and women in one breast or both. During puberty breast development is hindered and the breasts fail to develop normally and fully.
Tuberous breasts are not just small breasts. Instead, they often have constricted tissue that needs to be surgically corrected. This is why it’s important to see a surgeon that is specifically experienced in tuberous breast correction. Our surgeons correct tuberous breasts with a breast augmentation. See breast augmentation page for more information.
We have worked hard to be able to offer an affordable price so patients do not feel pressured to visit under qualified practices or destination surgery.
Our tuberous breast surgery includes surgeons fee, hospital fee, general anaesthetic costs, compression garments and lifetime follow up care.
