How to Fix Tuberous (or Tubular) Breasts?

Both females and males that have underdeveloped breasts due to a variety of reasons may suffer from a condition known as tubular breasts. The end result is breasts that do not have the same volume and fullness as fully developed breasts.

Patients that suffer from tuberous breasts, otherwise known as tubular breasts, often experience extreme emotional anguish, feeling embarrassed or self-conscious towards the situation – sometimes interfering with relationships as well.

Underdeveloped breasts have features such as small and narrowed breasts with enlarged, pointed nipples and large, puffy areolas. Breast asymmetry is often also associated with tubular breasts. Tubular breasts are also referred to as tuberous breasts, snoopy breasts, or hypoplastic breasts. A popular question patients have is: how do I fix my tubular breasts?

Breast Lift Surgeon Addresses the Concern

Dr. Golshani addresses this question that was asked on where you can find many other answers related to similar concerns regarding cosmetic procedures.

He notes: “Tuberous breasts can be corrected by breast augmentation with or without a circum-areolar breast lift otherwise known as a Benelli mastopexy. Whether the second portion of the operation is required depends on the degree of tuberosity of each breast, the degree of droopiness of the breasts, and the size of the areola.”

Have You Seen a Board Certified Surgeon?

Patients do report feeling pretty happy with themselves after fixing their tubular breasts!

Finding out exactly what procedure you should consider from various sources online should not dictate what you should decide on. A thorough examination by any board certified plastic surgeon, specifically a breast lift surgeon, would give you information that is accurate and insightful into your problem.

You would be able to receive information such as cost, how severe the “tuberosity” is in your breasts, how long your particular procedure would take, and of course – whether or not you would actually benefit from the procedure. This type of information is only obtainable by sitting down and consulting with an experienced professional. What may be the best way to fix your tubular breasts may not be the best way to fix someone else’s.

Many patients that have had the procedure often see a large boost to their self-confidence, allowing them to be much happier with themselves and with others.

Autologous Fat Grafting is Effective Way to Enhance Flat Buttocks

In recent years, more and more women are expressing a desire to have a more youthful, enhanced buttock as well as a curvier body profile. Autologous fat grafting to the buttocks, also known as a Brazilian Buttock Lift, can help women alter the size of their bottom and give it an attractive lift.

At Avosant Beverly Hills, double-board certified Dr. Daniel Golshani performs a Buttock Lift by utilizing the micro fat grafting technique. Unwanted, excess fat from other parts of the patient’s body including the lower back, hips, thighs, waist, and abdomen is gently removed via liposuction and after being harvested and prepared, the pure fat is carefully injected into the buttocks using a special procedure called the Coleman technique. The result with the fat grafting surgical procedure is a more lifted, fuller look to the gluteal area. In addition, the shape of the body is improved as this surgical method augments a liposculpture procedure to add or enhance curves and create a more sensuous and prominent profile.

Autologous buttock augmentation to the gluteal area is a safe and effective way to enhance flat buttocks and improve the contour of the body. There are many benefits to this surgical procedure over buttock implants. Implants are considered foreign material while micro fat grafting uses the patient’s own adipose fat cells as a natural filler. Therefore, there is a lower complication rate and there is no chance of an allergic reaction or body’s rejection of the fat. Implants in the gluteal area, on the other hand, have a risk of infection, may shift or easily rupture.

Breast Revision Corrects Complications and Unsatisfactory Results

Breast augmentation has become one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed on patients today. However, in some cases, women who have undergone this cosmetic surgery desire a breast revision (revision mammaplasty) due to dissatisfaction with results or to correct complications from a previous breast augmentation procedure. Cosmetic reasons for this secondary breast procedure include replacing current implants because of improper size, unanticipated shape, asymmetry and/or rippling and wrinkling of the actual implant that can be felt or seen through the skin. In some cases, women may just want to exchange their present, outdated implants for cohesive silicone gel or saline ones.

There are several reasons a women may require a secondary revision. Over time, breast implants may begin to deflate, leak or rupture. They may get infected, excessively firm, shift into another position and/or become increasingly uncomfortable. Other implant complications include retracted nipples, synmastia (both implants begin to form one implant) and capsular contracture (thickening or tightening of the scar surrounding the implant resulting in an unnatural breast shape).

A breast revision surgery utilizes a variety of surgical techniques to correct unsatisfactory breast augmentation and create a more satisfying, natural breast appearance. These techniques include replacing the implant size or style, changing the position of the implant from over to under the pectoral muscle or vice versa, capsulectomy or capsulotomy (removing excess scar tissue), performing a breast lift (mastopexy) or removing the implants.

Compared to the initial breast augmentation surgery, revision mammaplasty can be far more complex and difficult. Therefore, it is especially important to choose a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon with significant experience in the area of breast surgery. Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ASPS) and the American Board of Surgery (ABS), Dr. Daniel Golshani has extensive experience and specializes in breast revision. To learn more about this secondary breast surgical procedure, it is best to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Golshani in Beverly Hills.

Increase Your Self-Esteem With Laser Hair Removal

According to the New World Encyclopedia, self-esteem or self-worth refers to a person’s subjective appraisal of himself or herself as intrinsically positive or negative. Self esteem can be specifically attributed to many different dimensions of one’s view of themselves, whether its beauty or one’s view of their worth as a human being. Living in an era where the value of one’s appearance is paramount can create a complex in large groups of individuals as to what is beautiful and acceptable. Lets face it, for any man or woman, comparing themselves to the model on the cover of Vogue is entirely unattainable. Each one has a perfect figure, perfect skin, beauty that is breath-taking, and absolutely no visible hair in any unwanted areas. Unfortunately, what is not present is a warning label that reads “these photos have been professionally altered; what you see is not real!” Therefore we grow up and constantly grovel about the imperfections that we see in ourselves and others. Honestly, how many people can say they have not personally commented negatively on some woman’s mustache or a man’s ‘ware-wolf-like’ appearance?

Many people constantly seek ways to remove this unwanted and embarrassing hair through methods such as cream depilatories, waxing, threading, shaving and electrolysis, which don’t always give the desired results and can often leave the skin red, bumpy, and irritated. However, laser hair removal effectively rids the skin of ghastly ingrown hairs and creates a smoother, softer appearance. Laser hair removal is the fastest growing and most popular means of ridding unwanted body hair and proves to be extremely effective for most skin types. It is an easy and virtually pain-free way for men and women alike to permanently reduce hair in these sometimes terribly embarrassing areas resulting in a better self image and overall quality of life. In this economic climate, many worry about cost of procedures like laser hair removal as compared to other more painful and less effective treatments which require routine maintenance. However, in the long run, you will actually be saving money as well as time. At Avosant Beverly Hills, we offer the most competetive and best prices in town. With our knowledgeable staff and expert nurse, we will be sure to get you going in the right direction to achieve the most satisfactory results. On average, people only need 6 to 8 treatments, as compared to monthly maintenance with other forms of depilation, giving you a lifetime of results. In a society where perfection can be extremely costly and entirely unattainable, a simple procedure like laser hair removal creates a positive self image that is ultimately priceless.

Breast Revision Surgery: Complications and Implications

Breast revision surgery can be extremely complex and the proper execution of such a procedure requires exceptional surgical technique, experience, and extreme attention to detail. The difficulty in these particular cases lies in the procedure being performed as well as the results from previous surgery/surgeries. Generally, any woman undergoing a breast augmentation will need some sort of a breast revision in the future, however, there are many other reasons that women may need to undergo a breast revision surgery. Dr. Golshani specializes in this area of plastic surgery and has extensive experience correcting some of the most difficult cases. When deciding to undergo any sort or augmentation or revision, it is extremely important for the patient to see a board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon with significant experience and expertise in the field. Dr. Golshani has properly revised and corrected thousands of patients who have suffered from poor augmentations done by other surgeons, complications with implants, and has reconstructed thousand who have undergone bariatric and mastectomy surgeries.

The need for breast revision surgery emanate from a number of different causes ranging from problems with the surgical placement or position of the original implant, problems with the actual implant, problems with the patient’s breast tissue characteristics, and sometimes a combination. Improper surgical placement or position of an implant can create problems such as bottoming out and double-bubble deformity or high riding implants. Bottoming out occurs when the implant appears low on the chest and the nipples appear to be in an overly high position. Bottoming out often requires reconstruction of the internal capsule and often a breast lift with removal of skin along the bottom of the breast is required. Double-bubble deformity occurs when implants are improperly placed and are positioned too high. In order to fix this complication, patients generally have to undergo a capsulotomy (release of the scar tissue) as well as replacement of the implant.

Due to the fact that implants are a man-made product, there is always a chance for the implant to rupture or leak in both silicone and saline. It is generally obvious when a saline implant ruptures or leaks because the breast will look deflated, however, silicone can appear differently therefore it is important to continually follow up with your surgeon to prevent complications. If one is to arise, it should be replaced as soon as possible. Implants that are teardrop shape or anatomical, have a possibility to rotate over time creating a distorted and abnormal appearance of the breast. Patients with this complication will have to undergo a removal and replacement of the implant and change to a round implant. Some patients who undergo a breast augmentation desire a size change, whether larger or smaller, and may also require a breast lift to accompany the second surgery.

In some cases, patients experience problem’s with their breast tissue characteristics and may require a revision or reconstructive surgery. In a small number of women who undergo breast augmentation, capsular contracture is possible to occur. This happens when scar tissue forms around the implants, making it hard to touch and visibly deformed. In order to fix this problem patients must undergo a capsulotomy and/or capsulectomy depending on the professional judgement made by the surgeon. It is very common for women to suffer from breast asymmetry, however in some cases, the difference can be severe. Women who suffer from severe breast asymmetry require breast implants that are different sizes to best create an even, symmetrical appearance.

Breast reconstructive surgery is extremely complex and patient undergoing this type of procedure need to be treated very compassionately due to circumstances that have highly affected their quality of life. Not only does Dr. Golshani do many breast revision surgeries, he is also an expert in breast reconstructive surgery. He has extensive experience in post bariatric reconstruction including extremely difficult breast lifts, reductions, and asymmetry correction. For patients undergoing such a drastic change in their body, surgery is often required to correct the effect of severe obesity and fast weight loss. In addition, we regularly see patients wanting to undergo breast reconstructive after mastectomy. Recreating breast for women who have undergone a mastectomy is very difficult and requires exceptional skills and perfection in the art. There are different techniques for recreating breasts as well as the nipple and areola. When patients are seeking to undergo reconstruction after mastectomy, it is extremely important to consult a plastic and reconstructive surgeon with extensive training and knowledge in breast reconstructive surgery. Dr. Golshani attended the prestigious Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Residency Program at the University of California San Francisco, where he underwent intensive and exceptional training by world renowned experts. He is highly qualified and trained in both plastic and reconstructive surgery.

At Avosant Surgical Associates we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality and care to all of our patients. We thrive on helping all of our patients to regain a part of their self that was lost and to deliver the quality and results that each patient had envisioned.
