BACKGROUND
The tuberous breast syndrome is a condition that affects young women and can bring on serious disorders of self-esteem. There are numerous surgical techniques to correct this condition, but most of them include the use of breast implants to replace lack of volume. Nowadays, patients are increasingly becoming more demanding to get a definitive solution with minimal aesthetic sequelae.
METHODS
We present a series of 11 patients with tuberous breast deformities treated with lipofilling technique. Fat harvest was performed by conventional lipoaspiration with 3 mm cannulas, centrifuged at 2000 rpm for 2 minutes and injected in the breast were was needed with 1.9 mm blunt cannulas.
RESULTS
The patient’s average age was 24 year old with a BMI of 23.4 kg/m2. Volumes between 80 and 250 ml per breast were injected in every session, requiring a total volume of 413 ml per breast. Most patients required up to two procedures to achieve the complete breast correction. The mean follow-up was 29.7 months. All patients had good aesthetics results with minimal complications.
CONCLUSION
Natural breast mound with excellent cosmetic result can be achieved with fat grafting. Fat grafting main advantage is to respond to physiological changes in weight over time. In addition, lipofilling do not carry the inherent complications of implants. We strongly believe it is a safe and easy technique to reproduce in properly selected patients and with minimal morbidity it can cause the best natural result.
