Breast Asymmetry Correction
Asymmetrical breasts is a congenital or developmental disorder that can be corrected through breast augmentation or reduction surgery.may. This condition often causes low self-esteem, lack of confidence in sexual encounters and difficulty in acquiring flattering fitted clothing. This condition does not have to be permanent.
For small breasts, augmentation surgery is recommended by inserting silicone implants of different sizes into each of the breasts to match their size and volume to create symmetry.
For large breasts, reduction surgery is recommended to create symmetry and balance between the breasts.
In some cases, enlarging one breast and decreasing the other may be required. Each case is specific and personalized to the individual for the most optimal results.
About the Procedure
This surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia.
The duration of the surgery varies from person to person, depending on the type of asymmetry and the procedures performed during the operation.
One way to improve asymmetry is to implant two different size implants.
Implants will be placed either at the bottom of the breast or around the areola in a longitudinal line between the areola and the inframammary crease.
In most cases, the incision is under the breast (inframammary incision), as such an incision allows a wide field of view into the breast pocket making it extremely easy to insert the implants into their desired location.
The location of the implant (above or below the pectoralis muscle) will be decided according to your body structure and health condition, while always taking into consideration your desires and expectations.
Another option is to reduce the larger breast, resulting in a symmetrical appearance of both breasts. If the breasts are relatively close in size but different in shape, fat can be injected to achieve an aesthetic and symmetrical appearance, without significantly affecting the size of the breast.
