Breast Deformities and Treatments

There are many surgical interventions within the scope of breast aesthetic surgery. So what are the breast deformities and treatments ? In this article, we will present you common breast deformities (deformations, anomalies) and treatments.

1. Small Breast

Some women have either less or no breast tissue compared to other women. It is known as small breast deformity. The main causes of small breast deformity are;

  • Genetic factors
  • Hormonal state
  • Emaciation
  • How the pituitary gland works
  • Thyroid diseases
  • Stress and / or depression

Breast augmentation with the help of silicone prostheses is the solution of small breasts problem. Fat injection to the breasts is often combined with the breast implants by Assoc.Prof.Dr.Suleyman TAS in order to achieve aesthetically pleasant results and décolleté.

2. Big Breast

If the size of the breasts is bigger than normal size it is a big breast deformity. It causes aesthetic problems as well as serious health problems. People with big breast structures usually have back – neck – shoulder pain. If left untreated, it causes many diseases including herniated disc. The main causes of big breast deformity are;

  • Genetic factors
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding period
  • Too much weight gain and / or weight loss
  • Hormonal state
  • Breast growth after use of some drugs

Big breast deformity is eliminated by the Breast reduction surgery. Assoc.Prof.Dr.Suleyman TAS utilizes Central pedicle breast reduction technique which protects maximum breast tissue, nipple sensitivity, breast glands and ensures a natural shape.

3. Saggy (Ptotic) Breast

If the breast is sagging, as the name suggests, it releases itself downwards and sags. It is not an aesthetically pleasing appearance and bothers people who have this deformity. The main causes of saggy breast deformity are;

  • Genetic factors
  • Large chest structure
  • Frequent weight gain and loss
  • Being unable to stand upright
  • Incorrect bras
  • Breastfeeding status

The solution for the sagging breast structure is breast lift (mastopexy) surgery. If there is no sufficient volume, breast lift alone is not enough. In order to provide maximum benefit, breast lift and breast implant surgery should be performed together for the empty and sagging breast structure.

4. Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia means breast enlargement in men. The reason why it is frequently seen in newborn babies is that the estrogen hormone in the mother is secreted excessively and passes from milk to baby. This situation passes in the future. The reason why it occurs during adolescence and adulthood may be hormonal again. Sometimes used protein, carbohydrate powders, and similar products may cause the formation of this deformity. The solution is to take hormonal conditions under control in the first stage and wait for them to recover. In advanced gynecomastia, it is also possible to correct it by surgical intervention.

5. Breast Asymmetry

Breast asymmetry is one of the most common breast deformities that can be seen in women. Some asymmetries can be tolerated, while some asymmetries are large enough to require surgical intervention. The large amount of asymmetries not only cause problems in appearance, but also related to the asymmetrical load on the spine it causes skeletal system diseases and back pains. As a solution, asymmetry can be eliminated by placing a prosthesis in the small breast area.

6. Tuberous Breast

Tuberous breast is also a breast anomaly like breast asymmetry. It received this name because the breast resembles the shape of the tuber. Tuberous breasts (or tubular breasts) are a result of a congenital abnormality of the breasts which can occur in both men and women, one breast or both. During puberty breast development is stymied and the breasts fail to develop normally and fully. Tuberous breast deformity is one of the challenging procedures in Aesthetic Breast Surgery. A careful and meticulous surgery may provide a natural result without any mastopexy procedure and any extensive external scar.

7. Poland Syndrome

Poland syndrome is a disorder in which affected individuals are born with missing or underdeveloped muscles on one side of the body, resulting in abnormalities that can affect the chest, shoulder, arm, and hand. The solution can be achieved by placing a silicone prosthesis.
