Diagnosing and treating tuberous breast deformity
Tuberous breast deformity is a relatively rare breast anomaly, manifesting during puberty. Patients usually complain of small breasts, asymmetry or dissatisfaction with the shape of the breast. Objectively patients present with reduced breast base, displaced inframammary fold, hypoplasia, asymmetry, ptosis and areola herniation. The surgical options are multiple and either one- or two-stage procedures can be planned, using expanders, implants, “unfurling”, lipografting or a combination of these. Surgical treatment leads to a high degree of patient satisfaction and low complication rates.
