Who Needs Breast Asymmetry Correction Surgery

Breast asymmetry correction surgery is suitable for women experiencing significant differences in the size, shape, or position of their breasts, leading to physical discomfort or emotional distress. Candidates often include:

  • Physical Discomfort: Women who experience physical discomfort or limitations in physical activity due to the imbalance in their breast size.
  • Emotional Distress: Individuals who feel self-conscious or dissatisfied with their appearance because of breast asymmetry, affecting their self-esteem and quality of life.
  • Post-Pregnancy Changes: Mothers who notice significant changes in their breast symmetry following pregnancy and breastfeeding.
  • Congenital Asymmetry or Post-Traumatic Changes: Women born with noticeable breast asymmetry or those who have experienced changes due to injury or surgical procedures.
  • Desire for Aesthetic Improvement: Those seeking a balanced appearance in clothing and swimwear, aiming for a more proportionate silhouette.

Through a compassionate and detailed consultation process, Anca helps her patients understand their options and what to expect, ensuring they are fully informed and comfortable with their decision to proceed with breast asymmetry correction surgery.

Benefits of Breast Asymmetry Correction Surgery

  • Improved Symmetry and Balance: The primary benefit is achieving more symmetrical and proportionate breasts, enhancing the body’s overall balance and appearance.
  • Increased Comfort and Reduced Physical Discomfort: Correcting size discrepancies can alleviate physical discomfort, including neck, back, and shoulder pain associated with carrying uneven breast weight.
  • Enhanced Clothing Fit and Options: Many women find that clothes and bras fit better post-surgery, expanding their fashion choices and improving comfort with a wider range of clothing styles.
  • Boosted Self-Esteem and Body Image: Achieving breast symmetry often leads to increased confidence and a positive self-image, allowing women to feel more comfortable in their skin and with their appearance.

Types of Breast Asymmetry Surgery

Breast Augmentation

Ideal for correcting asymmetry when one breast is smaller than the other. Anca can insert an implant in one or both breasts to achieve balance in size and shape. The choice of implant type (saline or silicone) and size will be determined based on your anatomy and desired outcome.

Breast Reduction

When asymmetry is due to one breast being significantly larger, a reduction can be performed on the larger breast to match the smaller one. This involves the removal of excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to achieve a more symmetrical appearance.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

If the asymmetry is mainly due to differences in the position or sagging of the breasts, a lift can be performed to reposition the nipples and areolae and reshape the breast tissue. This procedure can be done on one or both breasts to improve symmetry.

Fat Transfer

For mild asymmetry or when a patient prefers a more natural approach, fat transfer can be used to even out differences in breast size. Fat is harvested from another part of the body, processed, and then injected into the breast to add volume where needed.

Combination Procedures

Often, the best results are achieved through a combination of techniques, such as augmentation with a lift or reduction with fat transfer. Anca assesses each case individually to decide on the most effective approach.

How Is the Procedure Performed

The surgical procedure for correcting breast asymmetry is highly personalised and can vary significantly from one patient to another. Here are the details of the process:

  • Initial Consultation: Anca conducts a thorough evaluation, including medical history, physical examination, and discussion of aesthetic goals. This step is essential for designing a surgical plan tailored to your specific needs.
  • Preparation and Anaesthesia: On the day of surgery, you are prepared for the procedure, and anaesthesia is administered. The type of anaesthesia used (general or local with sedation) will depend on the complexity of the surgery and your comfort.
  • Surgical Technique: Depending on the agreed-upon approach, Anca performs the surgery using the techniques best suited to achieve symmetry. This may involve precise incisions for implant placement, tissue removal, or lifting and reshaping the breast tissue.
  • Closing Incisions: Once the desired adjustments have been made, Anca carefully closes the incisions with sutures, striving to minimise scarring and preserve the natural contour of the breasts.
  • Recovery: Post-surgery, you are moved to a recovery area for monitoring before being allowed to go home, usually the same day.

Breast asymmetry correction can be achieved through various surgical techniques, depending on the nature and extent of the asymmetry. Anca customises each procedure to address the specific concerns of her patients, using one or a combination of the following approaches: Breast Augmentation, Breast Reduction, Breast Lift (Mastopexy), Fat Transfer, or Combination Procedures.

Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery from breast asymmetry correction surgery varies depending on the extent of the procedure but typically follows a structured timeline. Anca provides comprehensive aftercare instructions to support a smooth recovery:

  • Immediate Postoperative Care: You may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the initial days following surgery. Anca prescribes medication to manage pain and recommends cold compresses to reduce swelling.
  • Support Garments: Wearing a special surgical bra or compression garment is often advised to support the healing breasts and maintain their new shape.
  • Activity Restrictions: To ensure proper healing, you are advised to avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and vigorous exercise for several weeks. Anca offers guidance on gradually resuming daily activities.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Regular check-ups with Anca are essential to monitor healing, remove sutures if necessary, and address any concerns. These appointments also allow Anca to assess the success of the procedure and your satisfaction with the results.
  • Long-Term Care: Maintaining a stable weight and following a healthy lifestyle help preserve the results of the surgery. Anca also advises on scar care to minimise their appearance.


Patient satisfaction is the top priority for Anca. You can find how patients feel about her work below.
