Tuberous breast deformity can be one of the most challenging anomalies for a plastic surgeon to correct. Many surgeons feel that roughly 5% of all breast augmentation patients have a condition known as “hypoplastic tubular breast” or under developed breasts. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 12 percent of breast augmentations on women under 18 in 2006 were for tubular breast corrections. This condition requires the surgeon to be specially trained in the repair of this abnormality. It often can require performing a mastopexy in conjunction with repositioning the displaced tissue and also adding breast implants.
This 21 year old patient underwent a bilateral breast augmentation and left breast mastopexy to correct a tubular breast deformity. The results were fantastic.
