It is correctable : Tubular or "tuberous" breast deformity is not uncommon. The breast develops typically with a narrow, constricted base, a high and tight lower breast fold and a large protruding areola. Correction should address all of these areas typically by releasing the tissues, placing an implant and modifying the nipple and areola with reduction and/or lifting. Sometimes a staged procedure is indicated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
