Tuberous Breasts And The Benelli Mastopexy With Implants
You have the FORM FRUST of tuberous breasts. This means your tuberous breasts are incomplete for the full blown anomalad, but you have several of the unique characteristics. Your puffy nipples are because your breast tissue has herniated through the weak basement membrane of your nipple areolar complex, and this can be pushed back by reducing the size of the areola. You can move the nipples up on your breast mound using the Benelli or circumareolar mastopexy, and placement of a subpectoral implant can give you fullness and some lift. I have done this operation several times specifically for tuberous breasts with minimal scarring and very satisfied patients.
Now it is time for you to find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area who has experience with tuberous breasts and the Benelli mastopexy.
Right conclusion, a mild tuberous breast
You are correct, you do have a mild tuberous (not tubular) breast shape with a prominence and puffy apprearance to the nipple and constricted skin envelope. Hormones will not help, and your breast is normal in every other way including breast feeding. Surgery can improve the shape if you are really discouraged.
Do I Have Tubular Breast Deformity?
Yes you have a grade I tuberous deformity. Only surgery can improve. I recommend small implants with inferior pole enhanced fat grafts.
It does appear that you have a slight tuberous deformity. An implant and periareola reductin will help improve the appearance.
Thank you for the pictures. It does appear your have a mild form of tubular breasts with the right breast being a little more obvious due to the pinched appearance of the inframamary fold. The besy way to change the shape of your breast is to do a breast augmentation with a periareolar mastopexy. This type of lift will decrease the size and your areolas and give you an excellent results. I hope this helps.

Yes, you have tubular breasts but that can be fixed you can get breast augmentation with a lift to help shape your breast to your liking. Taking hormone will not change the size or shape of your breast. You should see a Well Certified Plastic Surgeon to review your options.
Your breasts have some characteristics of tubular breasts...many women do not have all the characteristics, but just some of them. A breast augmentation with a periareolar mastopexy would give you a much better appearance. Hormones would be unlikely to help.
