This week, Richard M. Kline, Jr., MD of The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction answers your question.
Question: Are any of your doctors experienced with tuberous breast deformities and repair without breast implants?
Answer: We don’t have specific experience with tuberous breast deformities, but I am nonetheless optimistic that we can address your concerns. The cornerstone for tuberous breast deformity reconstruction is reduction of the nipple areolar complex.
This is straightforward, and the remaining part of the equation, enlargement of the breast mound, is also well defined. If you do not want to use implants, but also want to be larger, you may have to accept some additional scars associated with transfer of natural tissue.
Otherwise, there are no particular problems. I would be happy to discuss your situation in more detail, if you wish.
