Breast Asymmetry Correction

Are Your Breasts Uneven? Don’t feel alone. Many women have asymmetrical breasts where one is slightly larger or has a different shape than the other. Only a few lucky women experience ideally symmetrical breasts. For those with a more severe condition, there are options to correct breast asymmetry. Fixing the problem will help make the breasts’ unevenness appear less noticeable. If you’ve been feeling less than attractive, Barrett Plastic Surgery of Beverly Hills provides breast asymmetry correction surgery to start you on your way to feeling more confident and remove any embarrassment or insecurities. Let’s get you back in your favorite workout gear, bodycon outfits, beachwear, and lingerie.

What’s the Cause of Asymmetry?

  • Genetics
  • Irregular growth during puberty
  • Mastectomy to treat breast cancer
  • Tuberous breast deformity that results in uneven breasts
  • Pregnancy, nursing, or a breast infection
  • A botched breast augmentation procedure
  • Mastectomy from breast cancer
  • Losing or gaining weight

Correcting Uneven Breasts Options

Breast asymmetry is common and easily remedied with a breast augmentation technique. Because every situation is different, your surgery is designed specifically for your needs and the results you want. If your asymmetry is on the more severe side, or you have always wanted larger even breasts, getting saline or silicone breast implants for both or one of your breasts may be recommended during your consultation.

Another possibility is breast reduction by removing the excess fat, breast tissue, and skin from the larger breast to match your smaller breast’s size and shape through liposuction. The third alternative is a breast lift (mastopexy) which is ideal when the breast has shrunk, droops, or sags. Although it doesn’t supply added volume, it will complement the other breast. For most women correcting asymmetrical breasts involves combining a lift with a reduction for greatest results.

How is Breast Asymmetry Correction Recovery?

Breast asymmetry correction is an outpatient surgery with a brief recovery time. Patients experience minimal discomfort, inflammation, or numbness for a couple of days—most resume light everyday activity inside a week with complete activities in two weeks. We recommend waiting 30 days before resuming strenuous activities.

Asymmetry of the breasts happens to just about every woman and appears mostly at puberty. Generally, it’s unnoticeable and doesn’t cause anxiety or body image issues. For others, that’s not the case, affecting self-confidence. Having breast asymmetry correction in Los Angeles will help give you the chest you’ve always wanted.
