Breasts play an important role in the feminine physique and can be a key part of your personal aesthetic. If the size and shape of the breasts aren’t even, and your breasts are out of proportion, it can negatively affect your confidence, clothing options, sexual confidence and self esteem. 

Tuberous breasts, a condition in which the breasts fail to develop in the typical round, full shape, begins in puberty. For some women, as they move through puberty, the breasts develop abnormally, resulting in disproportionate nipples, or long, tube-shaped, unusually-pointy breasts. Dr. Alizadeh provides tuberous breast correction in New York City at his private practice, helping address your concerns.

  • Disproportionate nipples
  • Tube-shaped breasts
  • Enlarged, puffy, over-prominent areolas
  • Long, misshapen breasts

Your tuberous breast correction consultation

Your first step will be a consultation with Dr. Alizadeh at his private NYC plastic surgery office. He will examine your breasts, discuss your medical history and current concerns, explain your options and help you plan how you would like to move forward. You will decide if you would like to get a simultaneous breast lift and/or breast augmentation. If you do want augmentation, Dr. Alizadeh will show you the different augmentation options. Together you will decide on your best option based on your personal goals for your breasts and your current proportions and physical frame. 

Breast augmentation with implants 

This option includes the selection of which type, size, shape and profile of implant you would like. You will have a chance to see and feel the different implants and try them on with a special bra.

Breast augmentation with fat transfer 

This option will include the selection of which area of your body you have excess fat that you would like to harvest in order to move to your breasts (thighs, abdomen, flanks or any other 

Tuberous Breast Correction Before & After

Surgery Details for Tuberous Breast Correction

Your surgery will be done under general anesthesia, and it will take 2-3 hours to complete. During your surgery, the fibrous band of tissue at the base of your breasts will be released, which stops it from restricting the growth of the breasts. This alone will help reshape the breasts. If you are having a lift and/or enhancement, your breasts will be lifted, excess skin trimmed away, and implants inserted. For fat augmentation, the fat will be harvested, purified, then injected into your breasts.


Once the surgery is complete, you will be able to return home. Dr. Alizadeh and his caring staff will be available to you at any time. You will have drain tubes for 4-5 days and wear a surgical bra. For the first two weeks, your breasts may feel firm and swollen. 

After about a week, if you are well and comfortable enough, you may drive, go to work and continue with your usual activities. You will have a follow up appointment after the first week, then another at six weeks to be sure you are healing well.

Allow yourself to rest and recover and don’t participate in rigorous or demanding exercise until three weeks have passed. Your breasts will continue to heal and resettle over the next few months.
