Do I have tubular breasts? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 13
You don’t appear to have tubular breasts because I don’t see any constriction of tissue around your areolae to give it a tuberous shape. Your breast crease (inframammary fold) is also prominent. However the photo quality is a little fuzzy so it’s difficult to say for sure. It looks like your breasts are affected by sagging, though, and are asymmetric in size and shape.
Not classic tubular breasts
Although you have one characteristic of tuberous breast deformity, the constricted fold, you do not have classic tuberous breasts. Your breasts are just underdeveloped and would do nicely with an augmentation. Good luck!

Hello. As with many issues, it is difficult to tell without examining you in person. You appear to have some characteristics of a tuberous breast but not the textbook definition. These issues exist on a spectrum, and you likely fall on the milder end of that spectrum. If you are looking to change the size or shape of your breasts, you would be a candidate for augmentation with a breast implant. This may involve scoring of the lower breast tissue or removing skin around the areola similar to a tuberous breast surgery depending on what your breast tissue is like in person. One thing to be aware of is that your breasts are spaced widely apart on your chest. This is a variable that cannot be changed regardless of the size of the implant. I definitely recommend a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon.
-release of constricted breast tissue All of these techniques work in concert to correct the tuberous deformation of the breast. Based upon your photos alone, it is difficult to determine whether you definitively have a tuberous breast. You do have some of the qualities commonly associated with tuberous breast including an elevated fold some constriction especially in the lower pole. There is also some degree of ptosis/sagging. Irrespective of the diagnosis, you might benefit from augmentation, in order to obtain a larger and more aesthetically appealing contour.As always, discuss your concerns with a board certified plastic surgeon.

Tubular breast correction, some advices:
I recommend you perform a Tubular Breasts Correction with Breast Augmentation using silicon implants, at the same surgical time.
There is a surgical technique for Tuberous Breasts correction, by which it is arranged the tuberous areolar ring from inside, without requiring areolar reduction. In this technique we also need silicon implants, to get a better Breast volume and projection.
Therefore it is very important that the plastic surgeon who will perform the surgery, has the skills and vast experience in this type of procedure.
Send your photos to give you more advices.
