What is Breast Asymmetry?
When breasts are uneven in size, shape, projection, degree of sagging, or some combination of these factors, it is known as breast asymmetry. There are several normal causes of breast asymmetry, including congenital or genetic factors, pregnancy or breastfeeding, weight fluctuation, menopause, hormone changes, or chronic conditions. Breast asymmetry is very common and usually does not indicate any underlying problem. However, if you experience sudden asymmetry, you should have your breasts checked by your primary care physician.
Breast Asymmetry Correction Treatment Options
There are multiple ways to address asymmetrical breasts through surgical mammoplasty techniques. These techniques may be used alone or in combination.
Breast implants, or augmentation mammoplasty, use artificial breast implants to balance out the breasts and increase the size of both breasts if desired.
This technique, also known as fat transfer breast augmentation, uses liposuction to move fat from another area, such as the stomach or thighs, to add volume and even out the breasts. Fat transfer breast augmentation is a great option for women who only need a subtle change to create a more even appearance.
If a patient would like to match the size of their smaller breast or reduce both breasts, a breast reduction can be performed. In this procedure, fat and tissue are removed, and the breasts are carefully reshaped.
If there is a noticeable difference in the amount of breast ptosis, or sagging, a breast lift can be performed. A breast lift evens out the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the remaining skin and tissue for a natural, balanced look.
