Breasts come in all different shapes and sizes in nature. Women with small breasts, large breasts, and any size in between fall on the spectrum of normal development. However, a number of breast deformities do exist. One of these is Tuberous Breast Deformity (TBD), more commonly referred to as tuberous breasts. This is a congenital condition that women and some men are born with that becomes apparent when their breast tissue does not develop normally. It is not certain what causes this abnormality, but the results of one study of breast tissue specimens in 2011 suggest that it is genetic involving a disorder of collagen deposition.

The trend of men taking advantage of plastic surgery continues to increase in popularity. The most popular type of plastic surgery men men choose is liposuction, but a procedure to address either enlarged breast tissue or protruding nipples known as gynecomastia is now the third most popular in the United States. This procedure, called reduction mammoplasty, involves the removal of excess fat and glandular tissue and can be performed safely on otherwise healthy men of all ages.
