Tuberous or tubular breasts are elongated or misshaped breasts that can occur at birth or during puberty. At Plastic Surgery Associates of Santa Rosa, our board-certified plastic surgeons, Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas, offer tuberous breast correction to help patients attain a normal and full breast contour. We are pleased to provide the latest options for women considering tuberous breast correction. In addition, we offer nipple correction surgery, which is almost always a part of TBC. At our Santa Rosa practice, our goal is to deliver beautiful results while treating you as a friend or family member rather than just as a patient. Our Santa Rosa patients choose this correction procedure to increase their confidence and achieve a rounder, more natural breast shape.

"Breast augmentation was something I'd always dreamed of but it also seemed so daunting! I barely had the guts to call Dr. Furnas's office. I was completely blown away at how open and caring they were, even on that first call, and especially the first visit. It was important that I felt safe, listened to, respected, and the whole team just went above and beyond it all. It was neat to find out Dr. Furnas is also an artist! If she had the eye to be an amazing artist then she would see every detail needed to do well with symmetry and surgery. It was also especially important that my plastic surgeon be a woman. Being unconscious for a surgery is scary, and it was a privilege to have an all female team. Surgery was January 2020 and the results are already beyond my very best expectations, I finally feel confident and free in my body. I can wear the tops I always wanted, no more crazy uncomfortable padded push up bras! Who knew silicone could make you feel MORE authentic?"- A.L. / Yelp / Feb 28, 2020
"I absolutely love this place! I had my lips done about 2 years ago I tagged a long with a friend of mine who would come here regularly and my experience was wonderful! Then I had my boobs done back in May because of so many people I know who went here and all I heard was good reviews! My experience was amazing the customer service is always amazing everyone is so kind and sweet and helpful! I am so happy with my boob job everything went exactly as they told me it would. I just had a tummy tuck 2 days ago and I wanted to make sure to leave a review because I again am beyond happy with my results and overall my entire experience! I highly recommend this place to anyone! I saw Dr Fernus for both my surgeries she is so sweet! Definitely worth every penny I feel so much better about myself since my operations!"- W.W. / Yelp / Nov 20, 2019
"Great, Amazing place good outcome"- L.J. / Facebook / Nov 15, 2019
"I am so happy with my results. I had an awful double chin issue that would not go away with diet or exercise. I tried Kybella with a different facility and received little to no results. Dr. Furnas did chin lipo for me and the results are fantastic. I had a lot of scar tissue due to the Kybella but she was able to still do a phenomenal job. My overall experience has been great and everyone there is so sweet and attentive. I've also been going there for all my botox needs. If anyone is at all on the fence about getting botox, I highly recommend going for it at this place. No pain and the results are the best. I look amazing, THANK YOU!"- M.G. / Google / Oct 18, 2019
"Dr Furnas and her team are a class act! From consultation to surgery to post op they are seamless! This is the second time I’ve seen Dr Furnas. During the consult she took her time answered all of my questions and gave me her honest opinion! I’m very happy with the results and would recommend! Her office team is also wonderful. I give 5 Stars 🌟"- M.M. / Facebook / Oct 18, 2019
Every woman has a unique vision of what she wants from her tuberous breast correction surgery. That's why Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas take their time to learn about each woman's specific goals so they understand the look they want to achieve. We then create a customized plan tailored to the woman's anatomy, aesthetic preferences, and special concerns. Ideal candidates are generally in overall good health and are past childbearing and breastfeeding.
The purpose of the surgery is to reshape tuberous breasts, which usually have a narrow base with breast tissue that may appear constricted. The areola and sometimes the nipple is very large, and the area where the breast is attached to the chest wall (the inframammary fold) is generally exceptionally high. A long nipple that protrudes or an inverted nipple that points inward can also be corrected, usually as an isolated procedure under local anesthesia. Tuberous breast correction is typically performed under a light general anesthesia. We will make an internal incision to release the tight breast tissues, making a larger space for an implant, rounding out the lower breast crease, and correcting enlarged and protruding areola and nipples.
What to Expect
Most women can return to their regular routines within 1 – 2 weeks. Some women are ready to return to work in just a few days. Results provide attractively shaped, natural-looking breasts, areolas, and nipples that are beautifully proportioned and the correct size for the individual woman's anatomy.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does tuberous breast correction cost?
The cost of tuberous breast correction will depend on your unique treatment plan. Every woman's body is different, which requires an individual approach. Once Drs. Canales and Furnas have sat down with you to review your condition and concerns, they will create a custom treatment plan and go over your costs.
What about other procedures?
Many women opt to combine a secondary procedure with their tuberous breast correction surgery. Most of the time, nipple correction is included, but a breast lift or breast augmentation can also be a part of your treatment plan if you desire. During your consultation, it's important to talk about all your cosmetic goals so we can create a cosmetic plan that is right for you.
How long do results last?
The results of tuberous breast correction are long-lasting, and many patients only need one correction surgery. However, if a breast augmentation with implants is included, then the implants may need to be replaced at some point to maintain optimal results. Breast implants generally last for 10 – 15 years. It's also important to maintain a healthy diet as weight gain can alter results.
Most woman can return to their usual routine in a few weeks, but we recommend that you refrain from strenuous activity until you are cleared by Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas.
