Breast Asymmetry

Breast asymmetry surgery can be used to help uneven breasts be more symmetrical and can be combined with a range of different plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic procedures.

What Is Breast Asymmetry Surgery?

Breast asymmetry surgery covers a range of issues including uneven breasts after a lift and augmentation. Breasts may be uneven due to several reasons, and depending on the cause for this, different procedures may need to be performed on either breast for the most desirable outcome. It is important to keep in mind that uneven breasts can be a completely natural development and do not require surgical treatment as a necessity. Instead, many women choose this surgery to increase a positive self-perception and ignite a conference that may have been lost as a result of having uneven breasts. As for the options available for breast asymmetry surgery, all options will be discussed during a consultation.

Breast Asymmetry Combination Surgeries

Breast asymmetry surgery may be paired with a combination of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic procedures. Breast augmentation, Mastopexy, Mastopexy with implants, breast reduction, autologous fat transfer and other breast reconstructive techniques can be used to correct their symmetry to achieve the optimal result. It is important to discuss all the options for surgery at your consultation.

Who Is It Suitable For?

Breast asymmetry surgery is suitable for those who wish to rejuvenate the breast, increase volume, improve the shape, correct breast asymmetry and for those who have asymmetrical boobs from a previous cosmetic treatment. This would include uneven breasts after a lift and augmentation procedure.

Who Is Breast Asymmetry Surgery Not Suitable For?

Breast asymmetry surgery may not be suitable for those who are overweight, smoke constantly, or those with any concerns to Mr Ross presented on their medical history. You will be asked to share your medical history during a consultation to ensure the safest surgical plan and process possible. Not doing so may result in you being disqualified for breast asymmetry surgery. Also, patients who are considering this surgery due to external encouragement will not be suitable for it.

How Much Is Breast Asymmetry Surgery?

The cost of breast asymmetry surgery is entirely unique to each patient as different measures and surgical techniques will be used depending on individual circumstances. After your consultation, Mr Ross will have a better understanding of your expectations and will be able to provide you with a quote that will include the surgery, hospital and anaesthetic fees.

Uneven Breast Development

Breast Asymmetry is extremely common with more than half the female population having uneven breasts. Although this is often a hereditary cause, some patients may also have more congenital conditions, such as tubular breasts, which leave them with a desire to improve the symmetry and shape of the breasts. 

Breast asymmetry can also occur if a patient has previously undergone breast treatments that have in turn caused uneven breasts. This can result in a size difference of up to 15 – 20%. It is important to keep in mind that it is not possible for breasts to achieve perfect symmetry and uneven breast surgery may not be recommended if patients have unrealistic expectations. When asymmetry causes functional and aesthetic issues, breast asymmetry surgery can provide a long-term fix. For many, it is life-changing and can dramatically improve one’s confidence.

Breast Asymmetry Surgical Pathways

If a patient has uneven breasts, they will need to determine their ideal breast size. Mr Ross will be able to show real-life case studies of past breast asymmetry treatments during your consultation. If patients feel their breasts aren’t their desired volume then volume replacement may be required combined with breast asymmetry surgery. The options include breast implants and autologous fat transfer. Breast implants provide a more reliable means of volume replacement when one has uneven breasts.

Once one has determined the appropriate size, focus will be placed on the desired shape. The shape can be altered by lifting the nipple-areola complex and placing the nipples at a similar height.  Occasionally the skin of the breast may be tight or constricted and it may mean that there needs to be additional surgery to try and recruit additional skin. Many different options are available and often a combination of mastopexy/breast reduction or breast augmentation. Breast asymmetry surgery can happen either as a one-stage or a two-stage procedure depending on the needs of the patient. Again, a comprehensive treatment plan will be determined following your consultation.

Benefits of Breast Asymmetry Correction

Each patient will have their own reason for wanting this surgery. With this, there are a few benefits of having breast asymmetry surgery that apply to most cases and should be kept in mind:

Improved Self-Esteem – Often, patients report an improvement in self-esteem concerning their body image following breast asymmetry surgery. Uneven breasts can leave women avoiding scenarios in which their breasts’ disposition may be visible to others. With the symmetrical revision, women can go about their day freely without concern about their asymmetrical breasts.

Improved Quality of Life – Some women face challenges in their day-to-day lives as a result of having disproportionate breasts. For example, a patient who has been left with breast asymmetry due to a prior surgical treatment may suffer mental challenges due to the ‘botched’ appearance. It can impose challenges when simply dressing day to day. Breast asymmetry surgery can revitalise the breast appearance, and remove the constant worry from patients’ minds. 

Breast Asymmetry Consultations

For breast asymmetry consultations, patients should expect the possibility of multiple visits to solidify the treatment plan and come to an agreed understanding of your bespoke surgical pathway. There are many different pros and cons to this surgery which will also be covered in detail during a conversation with Gary Ross.

Recovery all depends on the type of surgery one is having. If you would like to learn more about the recovery of breast asymmetry surgery, then you can check out our relevant recovery pages. Contact us today to book your consultation.

Asymmetrical breasts are not as uncommon as you may think. There are many different causes of asymmetrical breasts such as botched surgery, hormonal effects or developmental deficiencies. 90% of asymmetrical breast cases are a result of natural development, although patients still seek surgery to align their appearance for improved self-confidence. Mr Ross will always be transparent with his recommendations. With over 20 years of surgical experience, he has seen some cases and will be able to offer his recommendations as to whether asymmetry surgery is the best course of action for you.

Most patients who have asymmetrical boobs will opt for breast asymmetry surgery that is combined with another procedure, meaning that no one operation fits all. Breast asymmetry surgery will not only improve uneven breasts but will also improve your shape and size if desired. The surgery can also repair the breasts from previous breast treatments such as uneven breasts after lift and augmentation. Breast asymmetry surgery before and after images will be provided on the surgery.

Breast asymmetry is proven to improve the shape and volume of the breasts, making them look more symmetrical. Breast asymmetry is also performed to reduce the size of breasts in some cases to create a more balanced harmony. In some cases, breast asymmetry alone can not achieve the desired effect. For example, if a reduction is required, breast liposuction may be used to reduce the breast tissue, and paired with a breast lift to reduce excess skin. The possible results for your breast asymmetry surgery are abundant, especially when combined with complimentary procedures.

As with all cosmetic surgeries, there are risks associated with breast asymmetry surgery to keep in mind. These will all be outlined in detail by your surgeon, but here are some of the more general risks to keep in mind :

Infection - Although optimal care and safety precautions will be in place, infection is still possible.

Negative Anaesthetic Reactions - Adverse reactions to anaesthesia are possible, but we will discuss your medical history and carry out health checks to determine the risk level of using anaesthesia.

Scarring - Despite the surgeon's best efforts and skillful incisioning, scarring is possible following breast asymmetry surgery. There are steps to take during recovery that can minimise the impact of scarring such as keeping the wounded area clean, applying scar creams and also avoiding sun exposure to the target area.

Asymmetry Persistence - Asymmetry can persist following surgery despite best efforts. You won’t be able to see the completely healed results of your surgery until at least 3 months later.

When one has uneven breasts, they will often look at breast asymmetry surgery to help resolve the issue. Due to breast asymmetry surgery being able to be combined with a range of different procedures, it is difficult to determine asymmetrical breast surgery costs. Once you have had your consultation, you will then know exactly how much it will cost, the time it will take and other relevant pieces of information.
