Creating symmetry in uneven breasts

Most women have breasts of slightly varying sizes. The differences are typically minor, unnoticeable, and rarely interfere with one’s quality of life, but some women have breasts that are significantly different in size and shape. This can sometimes have a negative impact on one’s confidence and self-esteem.

If you have breasts that differ in size, shape, or projection, the plastic surgeons at Precision Medical Arts can create a custom treatment plan based on your physique and your cosmetic goals.

Types of breast asymmetry

A woman may be living with breast asymmetry of various types, which include:

  • One breast that is significantly larger than the other
  • Breasts that are of different shapes
  • Breasts with different levels of projection
  • One breast that droops or hangs lower than the other
  • Breast positions on the chest wall that do not match
  • Dissimilar nipples or areolas
  • Tubular breasts (an oddly shaped tubular shape due to tissue constriction)

Each person is unique, and so is each treatment for breast asymmetry. Our plastic surgeon will discuss your aesthetic desires and surgical options with you in detail during your consultation.

The benefits of correcting breast asymmetry

Even with surgery, breasts will never be perfectly even, but breast asymmetry surgery offers a number of benefits. Bringing the breasts into proper proportion and alignment can improve your physical sense of balance. Symmetrical breasts help your bras and clothing fit better and leave you feeling more confident in intimate settings. Perhaps most importantly, breast asymmetry surgery can make you feel better about how you look to the person who matters the most: you.

Your Procedural Options

Some women seeking breast asymmetry correction face a relatively simple choice: Augmenting the smaller breast or reducing the size of the larger breast. Other women may require a customized blend of procedures to achieve the optimal surgical outcome. Breast asymmetry surgery may include one or more of the following:

Breast implants

Breast augmentation can be performed to place an implant in the smaller breast, or both breasts can be augmented with differently sized implants to create improved balance.

Breast reduction

The larger breast can be reduced in size to match the other and create a more balanced figure. 

Breast lift

If one breast is larger, heavier, and lower than the other, a custom breast lift can be performed to raise one or both breasts for an ideal profile.

Natural fat transfer

Liposuction may be used to remove excess fatty tissue from one breast, or fat transfer can be used to enhance the size and profile of a breast.

Revisions or reductions to the nipples and areolas

The nipple structure may need to be corrected as part of the procedure, whether to reduce the size of the areolas or alter the location of a nipple that is lower or higher on the breast mound.
