Breast asymmetry and tuberous breast


Breast asymmetry and tuberous breast

Occasionally changes occur in the development of the mammary glands that cause malformations. The most common are the disproportion in the volume of both breasts and tuberous breast. To solve these deformities, it is necessary to combine the ensemble of surgical techniques that belong to mammary reconstruction and cosmetic surgery, providing prosthesis in most cases in a bid to search for the harmony and naturalness of both breasts.

Preguntas Frecuentes

How is mammary asymmetry usually corrected?

The most frequent solution is the combination of breast implants of different sizes, although in more extreme cases of asymmetry, where one of the breasts is substantially lower than the other, a uni- or bilateral mastopexy is usually required.

What is typical of a tuberous breast?

They are usually breasts that have not fully developed the medial and lower quadrants, so they are separated from each other and with a shorter lower pole. Another of the most dominant features is the large areolas that are there given that the mammary gland usually herniates through it. There are intermediate degrees of tuberous breasts which are quite common in the population.

What is the cause of the malformation of the tuberous breast?

Tuberous breasts are a malformation or deformation of the breasts, which presents itself from the onset of puberty. It can happen that the tissue that covers the mammary gland has an excessive rigidity and it does not expand adequately in conjunction with the progressive growth of the mammary gland. This situation can mean that while the gland grows, it feels like a prisoner inside the skin that cannot expand and it tends to herniate and push through the place with least resistance, which is the thin skin of the nipple. This situation can affect one or both breasts.

Correcting tuberous breasts

There is a wide variety of techniques for this, the most used include the positioning of a breast implant, a reduction of the areola nipple complex, radial incisions of the internal fascia, glandular flaps to fill the medial and lower poles, as well as the lowering of the breast fold given that the distance between the areola and the fold is usually very short.
