Breast Augmentation to Correct Asymmetry
If you are reading this, and you have significant breast asymmetry, then you know the difficulties of hiding this in clothing and bathing suits; and the challenge of undressing in intimate settings. You don’t have to live with breast asymmetry. If you feel uncomfortable with your asymmetric breasts, then breast surgery can be used to improve the appearance of your breasts, giving you self-confidence and overall improvement in your quality of life. This page contains some basic information about using breast surgery to correct breast asymmetry, but to get personalized recommendations about your situation, please call 727-895-1515 or email Gayoso Plastic Surgery in Tampa to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Antonio J. Gayoso today.
Causes of Breast Asymmetry
A small degree of breast asymmetry is normal, and may not be bothersome. Conditions that may cause more severe breast asymmetry include:
- Developmental asymmetry—one breast simply grows larger, wider or longer than the other breast.
- Acquired breast asymmetry due to pregnancy or weight gain; previous surgery or injury.
- Lumpectomy, mastectomy, or other surgery for breast cancer or infection (mastitis)
Sometimes breast asymmetry is transient; particularly after nursing. It may be necessary to wait to determine whether surgical intervention is the right treatment. This is especially true of developmental breast asymmetry. One breast may grow first, then the other. For very young women reporting breast asymmetry, treatment may be delayed to determine when is the best time for surgery.
Treating Breast Asymmetry
Depending on your cosmetic goals, there are a number of options for treating breast asymmetry. The simplest is to use breast augmentation to increase the size of the smaller breast, or increase the size of both breasts so they are the desired size. Other times, a breast reduction may be performed on the larger breast. A breast lift, sometimes with nipple and areola reduction or reshaping, may be used to ensure both breasts are equally shaped and attractive.
