Lack of normal: Breast development for most women begins a puberty when the nipples and areola begin to enlarge. Next the entire breast begins the thicken and the nipple begins to come to a bit of a point. Finally as estrogen levels increase with the onset of the menstrual cycles, additional fatty tissue and mammary tissue develops giving the breast an adult appearance.
