Small, uneven or tubular-shaped breasts can be caused by a congenital defect. Tubular breast deformity is a syndrome that impacts the development of the breast, constricting the connective tissue. Many women who have this breast condition may be aware they have a defect that is more than a cosmetic concern and requires specialized plastic surgery to correct. HMS Plastic Surgery can perform tubular breast deformity correction surgery at our center in Miami, FL.
Symptoms of Tubular Breast Deformity
The defect that causes tubular breasts is not noticeable until the breasts begin forming at puberty, but it occurs during fetus development. The breast tissue development is constricted, which results in the breasts growing in a tubular, versus rounded, shape. Some of the signs and symptoms of tubular or constricted breasts include:
- Puffy or enlarged areolas
- Elongated or tube-shaped breasts
- Uneven breast sizes
- Smaller breasts
Many women with small or uneven breasts may not realize they have this deformity. While they may be unhappy with the appearance of their breasts, the constriction may also impact the glands that produce breast milk. Receiving a diagnosis can determine the best solutions for reshaping the breast and removing the constrictive tissue.
