In woman, a relatively common developmental problem encountered in women is that of a tuberous breast. Typically, patients have one or both breasts which have a drooping tube-like shape, with a small breast base on the chest and an unusually large areolar that can have a puffy appearance.
The treatment of this condition involves surgical insertion of a Motiva cohesive gel silicone breast implant and to internally release the tight bands that cause the tube like shape. In addition, the areolar size is reduced and the nipple and areolar position may have to be lifted (breast lift) and puffiness reduced.
In men, excessive enlargement of the breast tissue is referred to as gynaecomastia. It can also be accompanied by excessive fat and skin, along with a puffy areolar. Treatment involves surgical gynaecomastia reduction and also puffiness reduction.
