Tubular Breasts


Tubular breasts or ‘tuberous breasts’, as it is also known, is a birth defect, which can occur in both male and female breasts during puberty. The condition can present itself in one or both breasts, where there is an abnormal development in shape and early growth is limited.

The effects of the condition are varied and can range from mild to severe, below are some of the common characteristics of tubular breasts:

  • Enlarged or puffy areolas (area surrounding the nipple)
  • Unusually wide spacing between the breasts
  • Minimal breast tissue
  • Sagging
  • Higher than normal breast fold
  • Narrow base at the chest wall

Depending on the severity of your tubular breast(s), one of our highly skilled surgeons will suggest the best course of action for you and your desired result. It is likely that a straightforward breast enlargement will achieve what is believed to be “normal” breasts. It is likely a breast augmentation will be combined with a nipple lift, reduction or mastoxpexy (uplift). All of these options will be discussed at great length with your patient coordinator and MYA surgeon at our free consultations.
