Tuberous Breasts – What is it?

The breast tuberous as its name indicates, is a breast with an anomalous shape and tube.

Tuberous breast malformation occurs during the development of the same. In this case, instead of a round growth of the chest, it only makes it forward from the areola itself, without dragging the lower and middle part of the breast.

For this reason, the final aspect that remains when this development ends is that of a tubular shaped breast, too separated from each other, with a too large aura, and usually falls downwards, because the lower pole is very short.

Between the malformations of the breasts, Tuberous breasts have a great physical and psychological impact on young women. Beyond the aspect that can cause psychosocial disorders and personality complexes, so is in any aspect of femininity.

There are many women who come to us to look for a solution to this problem. The breast is the main symbol of womanhood for women, and A tuberous breast makes many women want to undergo a surgical operation so that their mother has another aspect, and feel more feminine.

Currently, the problem of tuberous breasts is a situation that looks a lot. Perhaps because today is more normal or women have decided to step forward in this sense, but the truth is that women are increasingly coming to our clinics with this problem

The tuberous breasts, they are named because they are tube-shaped, that is to say that they are the basis is Close And the Way Elongated. The basic point to understand because they are formed in this way, is very easy to understand if we imagine that, there is a narrowing “ring” at the base of the chest and generates a constriction that prevents it from expanding, so it grows outward creating that tubular form of the breast. In turn this narrowing or “ring” of the base makes the gland push to the areola contributing to the increase in areolar size.

In a very high percentage of cases, these tuberous breasts are often also asymmetric, since a breast has a degree of development greater or less than the other, causing very significant differences between them. Also on some occasions, a breast presents this anomaly, but the other has a normal appearance.

In order to correct this type of breast, it is very important to diagnose them correctly, which is unlikely to occur when the defect is almost imperceptible. So imperceptible that, in fact, many of the women who come to our clinics for breast augmentation, have a tuberous breast and do not know it.

This birth defect was described for the first time in 1976 and is quite common. No specific causes are known to cause this deformity. Research is still quite vague, and the diagnosis occurs during adolescence when disorders in breast growth appear.

Tuberous breast correction surgery is often used in young patients who have experienced their breast growth in a catastrophic and traumatic way. These patients can be operated at the end of puberty.

En un porcentaje de casos muy alto, estas mamas tuberosas suelen ser además asimétricas, ya que una mama tiene un grado de desarrollo mayor o menor que la otra, provocando diferencias muy significativas entre ellas. También en algunas ocasiones, una mama presenta esta anomalía, pero la otra tiene un aspecto normal.

Para poder corregir este tipo de mamas, es muy importante diagnosticarlas de forma correcta, lo cual difícilmente va a ocurrir cuando el defecto es casi imperceptible. Tan imperceptible que, de hecho, muchas de las mujeres que vienen a nuestras clínicas para un aumento de pecho, tienen una mama tuberosa y no lo saben.

Este defecto de nacimiento fue descrito por primera vez en 1976 y es bastante común. No se conocen causas concretas que provoquen esta deformidad. Las investigaciones son todavía bastante vagas, y el diagnóstico se presenta durante la adolescencia cuando aparecen los trastornos en el crecimiento del pecho.

La intervención quirúrgica de corrección de mamas tuberosas está destinada a menudo en las pacientes jóvenes, que han vivido su crecimiento de la mama de forma catastrófica y traumática. Estas pacientes pueden ser operadas en el extremo de la pubertad.
