I've struggled for years about the shape of my boobs. They are a floppy triangle shape that curve around the outside and my nipples are far too low and basically face each other. I had always put it down to simply being a late grower or because I lost 30kg (even though they still were misshapen and underdeveloped before I lost weight) but through research I've come to the conclusion that they are tuberous. I'm only 19 and this deformity is causing so much emotional distress and self acceptance/conscious issues that I keep finding myself depressed with how my body looks. 

I wanted to know if this is more common than I think with other women who have tuberous breasts and if they have found a good, experienced surgeon (in Melbourne) who has given them proper shape and fullness. And who has helped them with medicare claims as well. I've seen some prices go as high as 20K and I have to rely heavily on my parents for financial support, who were completely shocked by the likely 15-20K price range. It would be amazing if I could find ways to help me pay for it. I already know there's medicare but I've read a lot about people also using their private health insurance? 

I'm desperate at this stage to find a good surgeon who can help with this specific problem and has experience with it so really any tips you have me are really greatly appreciated.

I understand how you feel, i feel lost, sad and mad at my body. I ask myself why did this happen to me? I close my eyes while changing my shirt or putting on a bra to avoid looking at them, mine are long and triangle, i compare them to cow utters. I feel like this might be more common than we think it is, but some women are just scared to speak up

I’m sorry you’re going through this as well. It’s awful for anyone to hate the body they’re in. 

Its hard trying to find a lot of information and also good before and after picture of breast augmentations with women who have tuberous breasts to ensure that I get a good result from which ever surgeon I chose

Hi @giana have you had a consult with a plastic surgeon to actually determine if you actually do have tuberous breasts and if so they can give you a run down on what is needed to give you the the best possible outcome,  as some may need a lift others the nipples re-located ect. If you look through the find a clinician tab on this site you will find a lot of good surgeons in the Melbourne area. 

I wish you all the luck with your research and surgery and let me know how you go ?
