Some women develop breasts with a shape described as tuberous. The breast is underdeveloped, particularly in the lower part, with a large nipple and areola. The breasts frequently do not match. Techniques to address this usually involve placement of an expandable implant to stretch the breast tissue into a larger breast with a more acceptable shape prior to exchanging this for a silicone implant. Mr Cawrse can advise you in this respect and explain what is involved.
A general anaesthetic and 1-2 nights stay hospital is routine. If tissue expansion is needed then this performed after wounds have healed and starts 2-4 weeks after the first procedure. Time off work and avoiding vigorous exercise for 2 weeks is advised but can be recommenced thereafter even if tissue expansion is required.
