If you have always had narrow, tuberous breasts that lack fullness and shape (also known as "tuberous breast deformity"), then you may be a good candidate for breast augmentation with breast implants. This breast condition can be embarrassing for the women experiencing it, and you may feel less confident about your body if your breasts have this tuberous appearance. With breast augmentation using breast implants, our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons can add volume to tuberous breasts, create cleavage, and create a rounder breast shape.

Tuberous or tubular breasts are a condition that typically arises during the early stages of breast development. The narrow base of a tuberous breast constricts the breast tissue, forming a breast shape that looks tubular. There may be bulging or fullness behind the areola, causing the areola to have an enlarged appearance. During adolescence, if the breast fold is positioned too high on the chest, or if the breast skin is not elastic enough, then a tuberous breast can result. This condition can affect one or both breasts.

The only way to know if breast augmentation is the right way to accomplish the breast shape you've always wanted is to visit our surgeons for a consultation. Although tuberous breasts can be embarrassing, plastic surgery has proven to be an effective way to address the condition.
