A tuberous breast is a malformation that results in small and tube-like breasts that do not grow bigger with time. It is theorized to be caused by a ring that constricts tissue growth and thus leading to small breasts. This condition becomes obvious during puberty and breast development when one notices that their breasts are narrow shaped and unnaturally wide apart.
Consider being in a class where all the other girls are wearing cleavage showing tops but you can't because your breasts don't give you a chance. Depressing right? This is the result of tuberous breasts. Girls get low self-esteem and other psychological effects. It also leads to psychosexual complications because the girl thinks she is not worth attracting men. She thinks that she does not have anything to show off.
Signs of Tuberous Breasts
Tuberous breasts are not hard to spot. As the name suggests, they are tube-like, narrow and small. They look like underdeveloped breasts but do not grow bigger.
Tuberous breasts have large and puffy areolas. During breast development, because the breast is constricted, some tissues are pushed out into the areola which becomes bigger and unproportional to the breast.
The breasts are saggy and have a large gap between them. This is because the horizontal development is restricted. The breasts develop downwards creating an unnaturally wide cleavage. Some are not necessarily saggy but rather small and pointy.
Tubular breasts have a conical base. When the skin is tightened due to areolar contraction, the base of the breast looks rounder. Weight gain does not correct the malformation. Even with old age, this shape persists and is unlikely to change.
Asymmetry is another problem associated with tuberous breasts. The malformation can affect one breast leaving the other perfectly normal. This results in having one boob smaller than the other. The small boob can have the above characteristics of tubular breasts. This can be such a discomfort even when choosing the clothes to wear and going out to beaches with friends.
Tuberous Breasts Correction
This does not necessarily have to be the end of your happy days. Tuberous breasts can be corrected by surgically removing the constricting ring and inserting appropriate implants to give the breasts the fullness they are lacking.
It should be noted that tubular breast correction is not the same as augmentation. Although correction of tuberous breasts involves augmentation, it is a more specialized procedure of removing the constricting ring before filling the breasts.
There are different forms of the condition. In moderate and severe forms, the procedure requires a delicate balance and proportionality of breast reshaping, breast augmentation and areolar balancing.
