How Breast Surgery Can Restore Symmetrical Breasts
Posted on April 5, 2022 by Dr. Carlos Chacon - Breast Asymmetry, Breast Procedures
Breast asymmetry, or uneven breasts, is more than a cosmetic issue for many women. While it’s normal to have slight differences in the size, position and shape of your bust, some women struggle with a breast that is one or more cup sizes bigger than the other. Uneven breasts can create psychological stress and make it challenging to find a bra that fits you appropriately. You may shy away from tight clothing and swimsuits due to embarrassment or discomfort from the asymmetry. Luckily, breast surgery offers a solution for women with uneven breasts.
At Divino Plastic Surgery, Dr. Carlos Chacon will evaluate your breasts and anatomy and customize your breast procedure to create a proportionate bust. The breasts are an integral part of femininity for most women, and Dr. Chacon can restore your self-confidence and body image.
What Causes Breast Asymmetry?
Uneven breasts are typically not a medical concern, though some research has linked differences in breast size to breast cancer risk. Women who have a single mastectomy or lumpectomy often have breast surgery to restore a natural-looking bust, but asymmetrical breasts can be caused by a congenital anomaly, hormonal changes, puberty, trauma and other factors.
Your Breast Surgery Options for Uneven Breasts
Asymmetrical breasts are typically corrected with a silicone or saline breast implant to increase the smaller breast size. A breast reduction to decrease the larger breast is another option, which may include a breast lift to ensure an even placement after your procedure. When there is excess breast tissue on one side, the areola may differ in shape from the areola on the other breast. Dr. Chacon can alter areola size during your procedure so that your breasts match in mass, position, shape and nipple size.
Is Breast Asymmetry Correction Right for You?
Dr. Chacon understands that any noticeable degree of breast asymmetry can impact your quality of life. He has helped many women achieve their ideal breast size through breast augmentation or breast reduction. During your consultation, he will discuss the benefits and risks of breast surgery and explain what you can expect after your procedure. You will need one to two weeks for recovery and will have exercise restrictions for several weeks.
