For many women, the breasts are an important focal point of their feminine physique. Unfortunately, once they hit puberty, not all women experience the usual full, round development of their breasts. As this begins to become more obvious in the way the breasts have grown or are growing, the situation may indicate tuberous breasts. Dr. Sadrian, a board-certified plastic surgeon, provides tuberous breast correction in San Diego at his private practice.
What are Tuberous Breasts?
Tuberous breasts are pointy, lack volume or have disproportionate nipples. The breasts are under-developed and tube-shaped instead of the usual full teardrop shape. But be aware that if your breasts are small or a bit pointy, this isn’t necessarily a sign of tuberous breasts. Tuberous breasts are a genetic condition. The breasts have a smaller base that can cause each breast to look long or unusually shaped, and prominent, enlarged areolas.
This genetic condition can cause a wide and sometimes severe variety of effects on breast shape and symmetry. As the breasts are maturing during puberty, a fibrous band of breast tissue grows at the base. It is this band of tissue that results in the misshapen, tube-like breasts.
The visual effect can be a significant cosmetic concern for women. Other issues may also arise, such as clothes not fitting well, confidence issues or the inability to breastfeed. If the fibrous tissue of tuberous breasts causes a lack of milk gland development, women may not be able to produce enough milk for breastfeeding.
