Breast shape malformations are deformities of the breast contour involving the inferior breast pole. They range from minor forms such as a high submammary fold to major forms such as the tubular breast. The malformation implies an altered relationship between the mammary parenchyma and the superficial fascial system (SFS). The surgical correction consists of the releasing of the gland from all the connections with the surrounding tissues. In some cases, once the glandular tissue is freed from the constricting SFS, the parenchyma spreads revealing a sufficient volume to obtain a normal breast. If hypoplasia of the breast or inferior quadrant hypoplasia is present, the use of an implant is mandatory.
