Breast Dysplasia - Lacking Symmetry Affecting Function

A woman’s breasts are a very strong symbol of femininity. The way the breasts are shaped and look exerts a great influence on whether a woman feels at ease inside her body and develops a positive body image. Unfortunately, there are a number of breast malformations, where already in certain embryonic phases the development of this paired organ is disturbed. Such real breast deformations are rare, but when they do occur, it is usually possible to create a harmonious breast shape using methods of plastic surgery at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Each case is special, so it is nearly impossible to make general statements on this topic. That’s why we at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery focus on individual consultancy and advice, taking great care to assess your personal situation, discussing suitable ways and solutions, carefully weighing the pros and cons together with you. Please contact us for further information on this sensitive issue.

FAQ on Breast Dysplasia

Which forms of breast dysplasia may be corrected surgically?

One of the most frequent forms of breast dysplasia is the tubular breast, i.e. the breasts have a small base, are elongated and tube-shaped, and have large areolas. Due to their characteristic shape, they are referred to as tubular breasts. A surgical correction at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is possible, yet this calls for a special effort, since shape and size of the breasts and the nipples need to be altered at the same time. Different forms of breast dysplasia can lead to a pronounced asymmetry of the breasts: In very rare cases, there is the “Poland syndrome”, a complex form of breast dysplasia. In such a case, one side is not only missing the mammary gland, but also the underlying pectoral muscle. The other breast is developed normally. In contrast to this, in the “Amazon syndrome”, the pectoral muscle is present, but one breast is malformed or significantly less developed than the other. Then, there are various form sof nipple malformation: they can be missing entirely (athelia) or be present in a too large number (supernumerary nipples or polythelia), or the nipple itself is malformed or inverted, the so-called inverted nipples.

How do we correct a breast dysplasia?

Which operation technique will be chosen at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery depends on each individual case of breast dysplasia. Since it can well be a combination of measures, such operations are rather elaborate. It is practically inevitable to conduct the correction of the breast dysplasia under general anaesthesia. We will be happy to discuss with you during a comprehensive personal consultation at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery which possibilities there are in your individual case.

What is important following a correction of breast dysplasia?

The duration of aftercare and convalescence, the question which complications might occur, and which aftercare measures you must take following a surgical correction of your breast dysplasia, depends on the operation at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery which will be precisely adapted to your individual case. We will inform you comprehensively in a detailed personal consultation about any potential risks as well as how we will proceed with our treatment in your individual case.
