A tubural breast may need several surgical interventions to be corrected.
In fact, it is more similar to reconstructive surgery than cosmetic surgery.
It is very important for the patient to have patience because they may need almost a year to achieve a natural looking and nicely shaped breast. But it is worth the wait, the end result is usually good and patients are satisfied.
Doctor Jesús Benito’s team of plastic surgeons has the advantage of mastering several surgical techniques that enable it to achieve the best results in tubular breast correction. Of the main techniques that are combined to achieve the optimum results, we would like to highlight the following:
1) Breast implant: the best implant to use in these cases is the anatomic implant as it reconstructs the lower zone much better.
2) Mammary gland: in many cases, it is necessary to open up the mammary gland to increase its base and remove the constriction. This intervention leaves no lasting effects on the gland and is not visible from outside.
3) Skin removal: it may be necessary to remove skin from around the areola to centre it better.
4) Grafts of fatty tissue from the patient (fat transfer). Fat transfer is one of the advances that has been achieved in recent years. It is a very safe procedure. The grafting of the patient’s own body fat allows us to change the external shape of the breast without the need for complex surgery. The main advantage of this technique is that it permits us to increase and change the shape where it is most necessary.
The fat is obtained by liposuction from other areas of the patient’s own body. It usually comes from the abdomen, thighs, hips and double chin, and this also reduces the amount of fat in these areas.
Fat transfer is a technique that prevents any possible rejection or incompatibility. Since it is the patient’s own fat, it is less harmful for the body. Another of the great advantages is that the inserted fat cells form part of the breast and this results in a completely natural appearance. Antiaging Group Barcelona (Spain) is a pioneering centre in Spain in introducing the technique of Dr. Coleman which guarantees the greatest survival of the inserted fat and minimizes the incidence of cysts.
