Women’s breasts come in many different shapes and sizes. However, women who have smaller breasts that have a certain deformity may be self-conscious about the appearance of their chest. Certain deformities, such as Tuberous Breast Deformity (TBD), is a congenital condition that can cause the breast tissues to develop in a way that is not traditional. This abnormality is not just referenced by small breast size. Tuberous breasts are actually different in structure than a normally developed breast. Some common characteristics of tuberous breasts include:
- Breasts that have enlarged or “puffy” areolas
- Wide spacing between the breasts
- Minimal amounts of breast tissue present
- Narrow base against the chest wall
- Positioning higher than the standard breast fold
- Breast tissue herniating into the nipple
- Inability to breastfeed due to underdeveloped milk glands
In addition, many women who deal with TBD may also feel self-conscious about their appearance to the point that it may impact their personal, romantic relationships.
