Tuberous breasts are a congenital anomaly in which the breasts fail to develop normally. This abnormality may include hypoplasia, a tubular appearance, a higher inframammary fold (IMF), and sometimes a herniated nipple-areolar complex. Correction of tuberous breast deformity (TBD) is traditionally done with a 1-stage breast augmentation with radial scoring of the constricted breast tissue and/or the lowering of the IMF. An alternative 2-stage approach first uses a tissue expander to correct the…

Response to: “One-Stage Correction of Tuberous Breast Deformity Using Saline Implants: Without the Need for Radial Scoring or Lowering the Inframammary Fold”
TLDR
Differences are observed mainly in the author’s choice of using an IMF incision, rather than a periareolar approach as the authors prefer, and in the longitudinal and transverse scoring of the stenotic gland parenchyma.

Aesthetic Reconstruction of the Tuberous Breast Deformity
TLDR
A new approach to the treatment of the tuberous breast deformity is presented, which consists of a periareolar approach and rearrangement of the inferior part of the breast parenchyma by division of the constricting ring, thus creating two breast pillars.
Tuberous Breast Deformity: Classification and Treatment Strategy for Improving Consistency in Aesthetic Correction
TLDR
Satisfactory results can be obtained with appropriate classification and treatment of tuberous breast deformity with periareolar access, glandular scoring, subpectoral implant placement, and mastopexy techniques tailored to the specific deformity type.

The Prevalence of Tuberous/Constricted Breast Deformity in Population and in Breast Augmentation and Reduction Mammaplasty Patients
TLDR
Retrospective analysis reveals a high prevalence of tuberous breast deformity in the general population and in particular in women seeking breast augmentation or breast reduction (about 50 %).
Decision Making in the Treatment of Tuberous and Tubular Breasts: Volume Adjustment as a Crucial Stage in the Surgical Strategy
TLDR
Correct diagnosis, careful preoperative evaluation, and a comprehensive surgical strategy can achieve, in one surgical procedure, good and long-lasting outcomes in terms of breast shape and volume symmetry.
Management of Tuberous Breast Deformity with Anatomic Cohesive Silicone Gel Breast Implants
TLDR
The anatomic cohesive silicone gel breast implant is an excellent device for treating tuberous breast deformity that often can be used as a single-stage correction of the deformity with very good results.
Tuberous Breast Deformity: Classification and Treatment Strategy for Improving Consistency in Aesthetic Correction.
TLDR
The wide range of presentation of the tuberous breast deformity, in conjunction with frequent asymmetry, poses great challenges to consistency in aesthetic correction.
