Abstract

Tuberous breast deformity is characterized by an aberration of breast shape. The authors focus on the incidence and identification of tuberous breast deformity in all patients seeking changes in their breast size, not just those seeking corrections for asymmetry. This study presents the incidence of tuberous breast deformity among women with symmetric and asymmetric breasts who presented to the authors' clinic over a 10-year period. Most women have some degree of breast asymmetry. Tuberous deformity, nipple-areola complex involvement, and breast asymmetry may contribute to a patient's preoperative decision to seek surgical correction, and also, if they are not corrected intraoperatively, to postoperative dissatisfaction. It is essential that patients be evaluated for asymmetry and, thus, tuberous deformity so that these breast abnormalities may be identified and addressed during preoperative planning to ensure an optimal outcome for the patient.
