Breast asymmetry is a common issue that many women deal with. For some, breast asymmetry can cause self-image issues that negatively impacts their comfort with their appearance. At Yarrow Bay Plastic Surgery, we offer several surgical options for correcting breast asymmetry.
What is Breast Asymmetry?
Many women are born with breasts that are uneven in size and shape, which may or may not be noticeable to others. These differences in breasts are often undetectable to patients themselves, causing no problems at all, while other women can have obvious asymmetry, which can cause both an unbalanced appearance and emotional distress.
If you find that you are bothered by the asymmetrical appearance of your breasts or if you are bothered by the unwanted attention they may draw from others, the issues can be corrected through surgery.
Options for Correcting Breast Asymmetry
At Yarrow Bay Plastic Surgery asymmetrical breasts can be corrected through surgery that either enlarges the smaller breast or reduces the size of the larger one. Implants can be placed in smaller breasts through breast augmentation and in some cases both breasts if the patient desires larger breasts that are also symmetrical. A breast reduction can be performed on larger breasts. If one breast appears to sag more than the other, a breast lift can be performed to lift and reshape the breasts tissue to better match the appearance of the other breasts. A breast lift with augmentation may also be performed to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. If the nipples appear at different heights, surgery can relocate one or both of the nipples.
All of these options produce breasts that are more similar in appearance, working with each woman’s unique body to achieve the best possible results. Creating a more balanced appearance can help improve physical balance, self-confidence, and body image.
What to expect during your recovery will vary based on the type of breast procedure performed. In general, patients can expect to experience some swelling and bruising around the area. Pain and discomfort should not be severe and can be managed with medication. A surgical bra may need to be worn during the recovery period for support. Our team will provide you with detailed instructions to help you through your recovery.
