Tuberous breast

Specialty of Plastic surgery

Tuberous breast surgery is performed to correct a defect that causes the breasts to have a tubular shape rather than a rounded shape. This abnormality is due to a genetic disorder, which makes the tissue that covers the mammary gland stiff, preventing the breasts to develop normally during adolescence. There are varying degrees of malformation, therefore, the surgical technique used varies according to each case. If there is a slight anomaly it can be corrected by using implants, without the need for any complete glandular remodelling as in the case of serious malformations, which will require reduction of the areola, incisions around it and/or at the base of the breast to reduce the stiffness and redistribute the glands.
