Are my breasts Tubular? and can I fix them without surgery? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 11
I do believe that you indeed have tubular breast and you do need a surgical procedure to correct this, I suggest and anchor incision breast lift with areola reduction as well as an implant placement under the muscle for volume and a more natural look. Honestly I can let you know that there's no other way for you to correct this issue, than with surgery.
Not tubular but need surgery

Looking at your photo's I would say yes your breasts are tuberous.You a so have large nipple/areolar complexes as well.They will not get better with weight loss and toning.In fact your breasts can actually look worse if you lost weight because a breast is fatty tissue and breast tissue.I would do a lift/aug either as a comboned procedure or staged.ml
The appearance of the photo is of slightly tuberous breasts. Tuberous breasts have three characteristics:
1. enlarge areolae
2. breast tissue herniated through the areolae
3. high inframammary fold
In order to correct tuberous breasts, either a breast lift or a breast implant (or both) are required. Based on the photos above, a breast lift alone (with lollipop scar) may be sufficient.
Tuberous breasts start further from the midline than a natural breast
Correction of medial breast deficiency
Thank you for your question. You do not have classic tuberous breasts.
You do have breast ptosis or sagging and medial breast deficiency. Notice that your breast is full on the outside or lateral portion of your breast near the arm but near the breast bone you lack a normal amount of breast tissue which creates a straight line appearance.
Unfortunately there is no nonsurgical method that I am aware of which can correct to this. If you do wish to have correction you should consult a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, is experienced in reconstructive breast surgery and has an excellent reputation in your community.
Tuberous breasts and Options of Treatment
Your breasts have some of the findings of tuberous breasts (widespread breasts, large areola), not others (small breasts), and for some (constricted lower pole, high breast fold) I cannot tell from the photos.
This can be altered,but only with surgery--a breast lift if the volume is adequate, and if not, also implants or fat grafting.A consultation, in person, with a plastic surgeon will be the best way to learn your options.l
All the best.
