Pediatric Breast Hypoplasia

What is Pediatric Breast Hypoplasia?

Breast hypoplasia is development of inadequate breast tissue to meet the individual’s expectations of an adequate or desirable breast size. While there is no universally agreed cut off between breast hypoplasia and small breasts, breasts can be considered hypoplastic if there is no breast development, where there is insufficient breast tissue to support breast feeding, or if the amount of breast tissue is small enough to cause significant psychosocial consequences for the individual.

Tuberous Breast

The Tuberous Breast is one specific variety of breast hypoplasia, in which insufficient breast tissue develops in certain areas of the breast. Typically, the lower half is underdeveloped compared with the upper, the breast base, which is the measurement of the width of the breast at the chest wall, is small and the nipple areolar complex, the nipple and the darker colored skin around the nipple, is wide.

How is Pediatric Breast Hypoplasia treated?

Treating breast hypoplasia in children and young women, it is important to realize that breasts can develop at different ages and can take varying amounts of time to reach their final size, so it is important to wait until the natural breasts have developed prior to planning surgery. We offer a personalized treatment to take into account not only the extent of the condition and how the individual patient is affected, but also to look ahead to how that young woman will grow and develop over time.
