Breast Asymmetry Correction Surgery
Breast asymmetry is extremely common, and most women will naturally have some degree of mild asymmetry. However, some women may have asymmetry that is quite noticeable and causes self-consciousness or difficulty finding clothing that fits properly. This asymmetry may be in the shape, position, or volume of the breasts. Whatever the case, breast plastic surgery can restore a symmetrical and balanced appearance that boosts confidence.
In the case of women, their breasts might become asymmetric after breastfeeding. When breast asymmetry happens, one breast is a different size, shape, or position than the other breast. Alternatively, some women have Poland syndrome, pectus deformity, or asymmetry of the breast gland. Fortunately, Breast Asymmetry Correction Surgery is an effective solution that provides patients with aesthetic and symmetric breasts or chest. In women with a history of breast augmentation breast, asymmetry can sign a breast implant rupture. Dr. Azouz can use a combination of nipple repositioning, breast lift (mastopexy), breast augmentation, and breast augmentation with fat grafting to improve the breasts’ look and symmetry. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Azouz in Dallas to evaluate your case and design a tailored treatment to correct breast/chest asymmetry.
Different breast surgeries can address breast asymmetry, find out more about each alternative below:
Breast Augmentation for Asymmetry
A breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed breast surgery in general, so it makes sense that it is also a common choice to address asymmetry. In a breast augmentation, saline or silicone breast implants are placed to add volume and create a preferable shape in the breasts.
Patients who have asymmetrical breasts frequently choose to use two different-sized implants to create balanced sizes in their final results. Either round or teardrop-shaped breast implants can also be used to create a dramatic or natural look. During a consultation, Dr. Azouz can review all of your breast implant options and create a plan for a symmetrical and proportionate result that meets your aesthetic goals.
In addition to implants, a natural breast augmentation—also known as a fat transfer augmentation—may be a good option for many patients. This involves removing fat from another area of the body, such as the abdomen, flanks, back, or thighs, and injecting it into the smaller breast to create natural-looking fullness. This is beneficial both for restoring symmetry in the breasts and contouring the body for many patients.
Some patients may prefer the size of their smaller breasts, making breast reduction a preferable option to address their asymmetry. In a breast reduction surgery, Dr. Azouz will remove tissue from the larger breast and reshape the remaining tissue to match the smaller breast.
This can be achieved through liposuction for some patients, while more extensive excision may be required for others. Dr. Azouz can explain the best surgical plan to achieve your ideal results during your consultation.
While differences in size are often the first type of asymmetry many think of, patients may also find a significant difference in the position of the breasts. For a range of reasons, one breast may have significantly more sagging than the other, creating an asymmetrical look.
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is the best option to restore a balanced look. In breast lift surgery, Dr. Azouz will reshape the natural breast tissue to restore a youthful position and symmetrical appearance. For many patients, a combination of a breast lift with either a reduction or augmentation can be beneficial to change both the shape or size and position of the breast.
