The tubular breast is one of the pathologies of the mammary glands. At the same time, the chest has no obvious foundation and resembles a tube in shape. The areola is usually increased in size. Using the right implant, plastic surgeons can easily repair such defects.
Signs and types of tubular breast
The problem with such a breast is its underdevelopment. In the process of formation, formation in the correct hemispheres did not occur. The causes of this phenomenon are not clearly established. Signs of tubularity include:
elongated shape resembling a cone;
nipples and stria are elongated;
the base of the mammary gland is small in size;
the skin is not very soft and elastic, but has a stiffer texture;
omission is observed.
In most cases, mammoplasty is used to correct the volume.
Surgeons distinguish several types of tubularity. Determined by places of tissue hypoplasia in the mammary glands:
Down inside. Accompanied by minimal elongation, there is a slight omission of the areola, the chest seems to be a little bullied.
All over the bottom. Lack of volume and a very elongated shape. Between the mammary glands there is a large gap, the nipples are pressed down, and the areolar zone is very stretched.
In the whole chest. The volume is almost completely absent and resembles a pronounced tube in shape.
Depending on the type, a plastic technique is selected, which will become the most effective solution.
Indications and contraindications for surgery
Surgery to correct the mammary glandular tubularity is performed if:
restore the foundation or expand it;
volume increase required;
bring the form into an aesthetic look, make it neat and elastic;
to form a fold under the breast;
make a lift to remove the omission;
adjust the shape and size of the areola;
maintain lactation and sensitivity.
But whatever the testimony, a prerequisite for surgery is a preoperative examination. It necessarily includes mammography and testing. An operation is prescribed if there are no contraindications in the form of:
a lot of excess weight;
less than eighteen years of age;
problems with the endocrine system, heart, or kidneys.
The most important point in the preparation of the operation is the selection of the correct prosthesis in shape and size.
Possible complications after plastic surgery
Any operation suggests that complications may occur after it. Most often, patients complain of decreased sensitivity. It can be partial or complete. This is due to nerve endings and the location of the implant.
Other complications include:
The appearance of hematomas in the area of the implant. May be accompanied by bleeding. Accompanied by pain and additional swelling. To eliminate the hematoma, a second operation is required.
The development of infection at the site of injury. A possible cause may be the incompatibility of living tissue with the prosthesis. Then extraction is required. A new mammoplasty is possible only after six months. To avoid the development of infections, patients are prescribed a course of antibiotics.
Necrosis or tissue death. most common in women smokers. It is associated with poor blood circulation.
The appearance of scars. This phenomenon depends on the genetic ability of the body to regenerate tissues.
The professionalism of a plastic surgeon and strict adherence to recommendations after surgery significantly reduces the risk of complications.
Tubular breast correction steps
The entire operational process is divided into:
correction of the shape and size of the areola;
extra tissue extraction;
the correct formation of the chest fold;
preparing a place for the installation of the implant, for this the base of the mammary glands expands;
suturing, removal is not performed due to self-absorption of threads;
the imposition of cosmetic stitches.
Further, the patient should be in the hospital for some time under the supervision of doctors.
Rehabilitation and care after plastic surgery
A prerequisite is compliance with the postoperative regimen. A woman should attend dressings, take care of herself and overload her pectoral muscles.
It is important to purchase compression underwear after the operation and wear it for at least a month. It is forbidden to sunbathe for thirty days. use the sauna and pool. Eliminate heavy physical activity and sports.
Strict adherence to the regime is the key to a quick and hassle-free recovery.
