Breast Asymmetry Correction

Introduction

Most women notice a degree of variation in the size and shape of their breasts. This condition is known as breast asymmetry. Genetic and developmental factors can play a role, sometimes resulting in breasts that are not proportionately balanced. This noticeable difference in a woman’s breasts can cause embarrassment, negative behavioural modification and a decrease in self-esteem.

Fortunately, there are progressive surgical techniques available for correcting breast asymmetry. Options include combining available surgeries such as breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction. Ultimately, the choice moving forward is yours, and decisions are based on the underlying condition of your breasts, available surgical procedures, and your personal expectations or desires. Dr Choy takes all of this into account in your extensive consultation with him and you will leave feeling that your experience is caring, warm and personal.

When does breast asymmetry become a problem?

Asymmetric breasts usually display one or more symptom. These can include:

  • Uneven breast size
  • Uneven breast shape
  • Different nipple size or shape
  • Uneven nipple position

Moderate variations of the above are expected in every woman, but in extreme cases where quality of life is impeded, breast asymmetry correction is a desirable procedure. If a woman feels the need to radically modify the way she dresses or wears a bra, it could lead to psychological issues or a loss of self-esteem and confidence.

Breast Asymmetry Surgery options

As there are many variations and permutations of uneven breasts, the surgical options also vary. Dr Choy’s empathetic demeanour will give you the confidence that your needs will be met. The solutions he suggests will always be tailored to your individual requirements by taking into consideration your concerns, medical history and potential outcomes.

Possible procedures include:

  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Reduction
  • Breast Uplift
  • Fat Transfer Augmentation
  • Nipple Repositioning

The underlying principle of breast asymmetry surgery is to create breasts that are similar in size and shape. In most cases, patients prefer the smaller breast to be made bigger, although it is sometimes preferable to decrease the size of the larger breast. Additional improvements such as nipple positioning are also considered. Shape and symmetry is the goal when correcting uneven breasts, and this ideal shouldn’t be sacrificed solely for the sake of size.

Does the other breast remain unchanged?

Your quest for symmetry will probably involve work on both breasts. The goal is to create breasts that look, feel and behave in a similar manner, and this overall effect can be achieved by lifting/reducing your breasts either with or without implants, depending on your personal needs.

Recovery

If you receive implants as part of your breast asymmetry surgery, your recovery time will be around six weeks in total. Your surgeon will inform you of a suitable after-care process that includes scheduled check-ups, wound healing methods, and advice regarding your return to normal activities.

The end result should be two breasts of similar volume and shape. Occasionally, a second procedure is recommended to make small adjustments such as raising a nipple or to transfer a little more fat into an area. Dr Choy uses the best enhancement and reconstructive techniques to deliver beautiful results.

His professional yet empathetic approach will provide you with great breast symmetry and give you the opportunity to enjoy a healthy and vital lifestyle.
