Are my breasts tuberous? (photos)
Doctor Answers 21
Thank you for your question. Your breast are clearly uneven. From this photo I cannot say with certainty that the left breast is tuberous. Nevertheless surgery could make the breast much more even. Most board certified plastic surgeons should be capable of helping you, but be sure your surgeon has considerable experience doing this type of work. Best of luck to you.

There may be breast underdevelopment of the breast with little or no breast tissue. There may be deficiency of breast skin. The breast may appear narrow, tubular, long , conical or droopy. This has lended to other unattractive names such as #TubularBreasts, or #SnoopyBreasts.

Hard to tell from the photos
- A tuberous breast deformity is due to the fact that the breast is not shaped like a mound but more like a silo. The base is narrow and the areola is large. The treatment is to open up the base of the breast tissue so that it is wider and then place the proper implant underneath the breast tissue. The areola is also reduced in size. It's hard to tell from these photos but if you sent a more complete set, I can get a better idea
