Tuberous breasts are a congenital malformation, most frequently characterised by anomalies in the conformation of the nipple and the areola and the failure of the lower quadrants of the breast to develop. The nipple and areola area is often so large that it occupies the entire top area of the breast.
The breasts often droop and differ visibly in size, face downwards and with a narrow attachment base. To correct this deformity, reconstructive plastic surgery is performed, which involves remodelling the gland and restoring the normal proportions of the areola and nipple complex, with the possible insertion of a prosthesis to recreate the missing volumes.
The breasts look better and more “normal”. The shape and projection of the breasts are corrected, the folds are lowered and the areola and nipple area appears reduced in diameter and/or repositioned appropriately. Any possible embarrassment caused by the presence of this malformation ceases to exist.
