Caption: Tuberous breasts of a 16 year old girl. Tuberous, or tubular, breasts occur when the breasts develop abnormally to resemble a tubular shape rather than the traditional mound shape. They often point downwards due to a lack of supporting base mass. The breast tissue, without the normal width in which to expand, also often herniates through to the areola, giving the nipple/areola complex a swollen appearance. Although tuberous breasts will function as normal breasts do, some women may wish to undergo cosmetic surgery to correct the abnormality. For the breasts after surgery, see image M350/398.
