Tuberous breasts are a congenital malformation in which an alteration in the shape of the breast occurs, due to the presence of a ring-shaped fibrous tissue at the breast base located under the areola, which does not allow full development of the breast. The breasts are widely separated, with a very short lower pole (that is, a submammary groove very close to the nipple) and a tubular shape. The areolas are usually larger than normal and are often dilated by herniation of the breast tissue. It is common for the breasts to be small and asymmetrical in most cases.


Tuberous breasts areusually reconstructed through glandular mobilization and implant placement but, in some cases, we can resort to the use of lipofilling without the need to use implants to correct this deformity.
