Am I tuberous???

Hi there, Can you please let me know if my breasts appear tuberous? They have always been pointy in shape, and I have always had very large nipples. Also the right is fairly bigger thank the left.Not sure if I just have unfortunate shaped breasts or if they are in fact tuberious. Thank you for your help! Rose

    Thanks for the question.
    i do not think you have tuberous breast based on the photos you have given, but I agree you do have breast asymmetry.
    The fact that the breasts are not tuberous is a positive if you are considering breast surgery, as the procedure will be less technically challenging in non tuberous breasts, so the result more predictable.

    Hi Rose86.
    Thank you for posting your question and photos.
    I do not think you have the clinical features of tuberous breast deformity (constricted breast base, high infra-mammary fold, enlarged "herniated" nipple-areolar complex). You may have a small degree of breast asymmetry, but certainly no ptosis.
    You are a good candidate for a straight forward breast augmentation if that is what you are considering.
    I hope this is of help.
    Warm regards,
    Dr Ray Goh
