Some women present what is known as tuberous breast. It is a more common problem than it may seem a priori, due to the fact that “1 in 4 women leave with this assessment by the specialist”.
If you think you may suffer from it, it is important that you put yourself in the hands of professionals for an evaluation, so you can get out of doubts.
What is tuberous breast
The so-called tuberous breast is a congenital deformity in which the breast has an abnormal shape, with a kind of protrusion in the lower part of the nipple. It causes the lower pole and the sides of the breasts not to develop completely, causing a different aesthetic than usual.
It can manifest itself in different ways, since it can have a kind of abnormal space in the upper part of the areola, thus causing an asymmetrical or separated appearance of the breasts.
The reality of this problem is that it can affect a woman’s self-esteem and confidence. But it is not always treated solely for aesthetic reasons, since in some cases it can be a functional problem since it can make breastfeeding difficult.
Each woman has her own reasons to undergo surgery to correct the shape of the breasts and have a normal appearance. For this purpose, breast augmentation, mastopexy and areola correction surgeries can be performed.
How do you know if you have tubular breasts?
Tubular breasts are a type of congenital breast deformity that does not always affect women equally.
Mainly, it is characterized by showing an abnormal shape in which there is a kind of protrusion or protrusion at the bottom of the nipple and an abnormal space at the top of the areola.
It can be identified if the breast looks asymmetrical or if it has a different size in each breast. Apart from that, there are signs and symptoms that may indicate that you have tubular breasts, they are as follows:
- Inverted or inward facing nipples: one of the main reasons that can lead you to think that you have tuberous breasts, is if the nipples show as tucked inward or else they are inverted. This happens when the nipple is not in the correct position and points inward.
- Cylindrical shape: this is one of the most common shapes and is characterized by the breast having a tubular or cylindrical shape, with a sort of protrusion or protrusion at the bottom of the nipple.
- Asymmetry: it is easy to detect because one breast looks larger or smaller than the other.
- Abnormal breast space: manifests as a more exaggerated than normal space at the top of the areola.
These cases are signs of tubular breasts. When in doubt, it is important that you consult an expert to examine your breasts and be able to trust if you are indeed suffering from this problem. From there, you can consider the possibility of carrying out the appropriate treatment to solve it.
What is tuberous breast surgery like?
To correct a tuberous breast problem, a customized plastic surgery procedure is often performed according to the patient’s needs. In this way, the congenital deformity of the tuberous breast can be successfully corrected, depending on each case, which may be different.
The aim of this surgery is to improve the shape and appearance of the breast, making it possible to achieve a normal shape, the one desired by the patient.
Different techniques can be performed in the surgery. For example:
Breast augmentation can be helpful to increase the size of the breast and make one look the same as the other.
Mastopexy allows lifting and shaping the breast, so that both look completely symmetrical and in the same position.
Areola correction is a technique that allows repositioning the areola and in some cases reduce its size for a more symmetrical appearance between the two breasts.
Each surgery is performed in its own way and can have different durations depending on the needs of each patient. That is why it is important to put yourself in the hands of professionals to evaluate each case separately and see the possibilities. From there, the surgeon will recommend the best option for the patient.
After undergoing surgery it is common to feel pain, swelling or even bruising. This is normal and will gradually disappear over time. But it is essential to follow your surgeon’s instructions to the letter and take the time necessary for a proper recovery.
