In brief: 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.

In brief: Tubular breast

Tubular breast deformity refers to the shape of the breast including a decreased nipple to infra-mammary fold distance.
decreased breast base width and very small breast volume. This can be corrected with surgery involving release and placement of an implant.
