Characteristics of tuberous breasts?
Treatment of tumorous breasts
The biggest mistakes doctors make is putting in too large or wide an implant, or forgetting to address the areolar size with a lift.
It's very important that doctors analyze breast asymmetry and unique problems of the breast such as tight lower pole to achieve the best results.

Tuberous breasts are a variant of normal but often embarrassing because of its appearance.
- The breast is tight at the bottom and the breast tends to droop, the areola around the nipple tends to be large.
- Often the nipple bulges forward from the breast. Tuberous shape may occur on one breast or both, and ranges from mild or severe.
- Correction of tuberous breasts includes release of the internal breast tightness, correction of the areola if needed, and a lift or implant, as needed – or both.
- Exactly what is needed requires a full face-to-face evaluation.
- Most women are very pleased with the result – there is no way to correct this without surgery.
Depending on your exact findings...you may need nothing done...or you may need a mastopexy with additional breast work. If you truly have mild tuberous breast...then you may not need anything but an augmentation. I recommend visiting a board certified plastic surgeon in your area.
