Breast Asymmetry

Improve Breast Asymmetry Through Augmentation

Comparing one side of your body to the other, it’s likely that you’ll find some instances of asymmetry. One foot may be larger than the other, an ear might sit higher on the side of your head. For women, asymmetry of the breasts is all too common.

Whether a matter of size or shape, breast asymmetry can range from “hardly noticeable” to downright annoying. This issue can negatively impact self-esteem, or even make finding a proper-fitting bra or and other garments a hassle.

If you’re tired of your own uneven, asymmetrical breasts, a breast augmentation procedure could offer a solution.

Common Causes of Breast Asymmetry

As with any asymmetry that occurs on a person’s body, uneven breasts are usually the result of genetic chance. Hormonal factors as a woman ages can contribute to this condition, and the effects of childbirth/breastfeeding on the body can also take a toll. In rarer cases, a medical condition such as hypoplasia (which gives breasts a “tubular” appearance) can also lead to undesired physical traits.

Breast Augmentation as a Solution for Asymmetry

To address minor or severe unevenness of the breasts, your doctor may recommend breast implants. Implants can be adjusted in size to increase the overall size of your breasts while bringing each breast into the proper proportion. In a case where one breast is significantly smaller, the size of an individual implant can be increased as needed to achieve the desired outcome.

Other Possible Solutions for Uneven Breasts

In come cases, procedures other than breast augmentation may be used to treat the appearance of asymmetrical breasts. A breast reduction gives your surgeon the opportunity to significantly reshape the bustline and could be a fix for unevenness. Likewise, a Mastopexy, or breast lift, can be employed to reposition, uplift and tighten the skin around the breast, often contributing to a more symmetrical appearance.
