Correcting Asymmetry With Breast Augmentation
A common concern of patients is breast asymmetry. One breast may be larger than the other, shaped differently, or sit higher and project further from the body. A difference in the appearance of one nipple/areola may exist as well.
It is important to understand that nobody has perfectly symmetrical breasts. It is extremely common for one breast to look different from the other, much like one side of your face. Asymmetry of the left and right side of your body is totally natural.
However, there are some cases where asymmetry is a cause of concern. If the concern is related to achieving a balance of size or projection, breast augmentation may help. Problems related to shape may also be addressed to a certain extent.
Breast Size Asymmetry
Breast size asymmetry is an issue that can be corrected fairly easily with breast augmentation, simply by choosing two implants of different sizes. The implant that is to be placed in your naturally smaller breast should be bigger than the one placed in your larger breast. You can also choose to get just one implant if the difference is a matter of a couple of cup sizes.
Implants come in a variety of "profiles". The profile of a breast implant refers to the amount of projection that is achieved when the implant is placed into the body. If one breast sits flatter against the body, then a higher profile may be selected to improve projection.
Breast augmentation does not usually correct asymmetry of breast shape, and may even make the problem more visible. Talk to Dr. Brown to find out whether your breast shape asymmetry may be corrected with breast augmentation.
