The tuberous breast

Clin Plast Surg. 1976 Apr;3(2):339-47.


The tuberous breast deformity cannot usually be corrected satisfactorily by standard augmentation mammaplasty or mastopexy. The two operative techniques described have been most helpful in dealing with this difficult problem. Anatomic differences in patients may permit or require modification of the techniques to correct a specific deformity. Although our experience to date with these techniques has been limited in number, we have been pleased with the postoperative results.
