I have what I would say, a mild case of Tubular Breasts and it destroys my life and my self confidence, even worse I feel ashamed to be naked, I feel as if I would benefit from therapy of some sort to cope with this deformity, I have always dreamt of having regular boobs.
I have not openly spoken about this subject to anyone, but I was looking at myself in the mirror just before and felt disgusting, so I felt the need to ask for help finally.
I’m not a millionaire, I would very much rather not have surgery in my life if I could ever avoid it but I believe I am ready.
Is there some kind of Medicare rebate for this and perhaps a payment plan that won’t ruin my life? I have lived out of home since I was 15, after losing my mother and not having my father around, I have needed to support myself from the get go.
I know it probably sounds ridiculous to consider surgery above all things in my life, but it is a constant factor that will ruin any mood I am in.
I am beyond stuck and helpless at this point and I am breaking down writing this and I don’t know if that’s ridiculous but literally no one knows about this issue, I have managed to avoid it for so long.
Can someone please help?
I live in Adelaide
Hi Nicole, I’m sorry to hear that you are struggling. Tubular breasts are more common than what you might think. Many women have them, but you’re right, it’s not something they commonly share. Here’s a blog we posted recently on the topic – it might help you to know you are not alone. The interesting thing is that this blog was actually written by a plastic surgeon from Adelaide – where you live! You may wish to arrange a consult to see whether you are eligible for a Medicare rebate or to see what your options are? If you would like more information please don’t hesitate to email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and you may also wish to join the PSH Facebook Support Group where you might get some further info?
Best of luck Nicole, I hope this helps.
