Breast Asymmetry Surgery

Breast Asymmetry Surgery

The aim of Breast Asymmetry Surgery is to improve the symmetry of uneven breasts, with regard to size shape and nipple position.

Whilst breast asymmetry is a common condition that is not often noticeable and has no significance, there are some cases where one breast is a significantly different size than the other. The affected person can be left feeling self-conscious and embarrassed by their appearance. Major differences often justify corrective surgery. Correcting breast asymmetry will not only help you improve your appearance, but can also provide a boost to your self-esteem and confidence.

Each case is different and Miss Breahna will discuss the surgical options that best suit you. The treatment options for asymmetric breasts could be:

  • A reduction to the larger breast
  • Inserting an implant into the smaller breast
  • A combination of an implant in one breast and a reduction / lift to the other breast
  • Both breasts receiving implants of different sizes when an increase in size of both breasts is desired.

Breast Asymmetry Recovery

Whichever option is chosen, a general anaesthetic will be used and you can expect to stay in hospital overnight. There will be a period of 1 – 2 weeks for gentle recovery which will require reduced activity levels. You may need to wear a supporting surgical bra for up to 6 weeks, with full results expected in around 6 months.

Follow-up appointments will be arranged at 1,2 and 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year post surgery to closely monitor your physical well-being.
