If you have tuberous breasts, you may have thought about getting a breast augmentation, and Dr Moradi is the perfect specialist plastic surgeon for you.
The condition is also known as breast hypoplasia, and is caused when the breast tissue does not proliferate properly during puberty. There is a lack of glandular tissue in the breasts.
However puberty is not always the cause of tuberous breasts, as they can also be caused by skin deficiency and malposition that impact the appearance of the breasts.
Tuberous breasts do not present any health concerns for women, however it can impact the ability to breastfeed.

What do tuberous breasts look like?
The condition is diagnosed in women, based on the appearance of their breasts. In general, the breasts will be lacking tissue in all directions.
- Breasts lack symmetry
- Variation in size between breasts
- Can appear pointed, oval or squared
- Areola may be enlarged
- Area around the nipple may be collapsed or constricted
- Constricted breast base
- More than 1.5 inches between breasts
- Little upper pole fullness
- Ptotic (sagging) breasts may be tuberous, due to the under-developed appearance, however not always the case
- Breasts look somewhat pointed in shape with puffy nipples.
What the correction procedure looks like
You will begin with an initial consultation with specialist plastic surgeon, Dr Moradi, where he will learn to understand your ideal breasts. Dr Moradi will diagnosis your condition, and find appropriate surgical procedure for you that can enhance the appearance of the breasts by improving the shape, size and symmetry.
Every patient is different, and your treatment will depend on the severity level of your tuberous breasts.
The surgery for tuberous breasts can be changed to allow for it to be coupled with a breast augmentation (see video below) if this is your preference. Both the correction and augmentation might even be done during the one operation, however it may take two operations if it's a complex matter.
The common procedure for correcting tuberous breasts is to release the constriction of the lower breast pole.
You may also have a tissue expander inserted temporarily to increase the size and shape of the breasts. Once this is completed, a permanent implant can replace the expander.
