Breast Augmentation to Correct Asymmetry

Causes of Breast Asymmetry

Breast Surgery
Most women experience a small degree of breast asymmetry, and it may not be bothersome, but some conditions may cause more severe breast asymmetry. Causes of severe breast asymmetry could include:

Developmental Asymmetry

One breast simply grows larger, wider, or longer than the other breast.

Acquired Breast Asymmetry

This could be due to pregnancy or weight gain; previous surgery or injury.

Breast Tissue Removal

That includes lumpectomy, mastectomy, or any other surgery that removes tissue to treat breast cancer or infection (mastitis).

Mommy Makeover
Sometimes breast asymmetry is temporary; 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 several 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 symmetric.
