How to Deal With Breast Asymmetry

As humans, we find symmetry to be quite attractive. Symmetry and balance symbolize both beauty and equity that we find mesmerizing, satisfying, and calming. When things that are “supposed” to be symmetrical are not, it can make you feel uneasy, uncomfortable, dissatisfied, or otherwise at odds with the subject. Breast asymmetry is a classic example. If you have breast asymmetry and it has led to anxiety and/or poor self-image, the following breast surgeries can enhance your breast appearance, restore balance, and boost your self-confidence.

Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Before and After PhotosIf your breasts are different in size or volume, breast augmentation can enhance their appearance. A silicone or saline-filled implant can be inserted into your smaller breast to increase its size so that it matches the size of your other breast. Receiving breast implants in both breasts may be recommended to achieve even more balanced results in which the breasts are not only the same size but also the same shape and feel. You can get implants of different sizes so that the final result is an even bust line. Breast augmentation may be recommended for women whose breasts are naturally small or have lost volume due to pregnancy, weight loss, and/or aging.

Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction Before and After PhotosBreast reduction can also help you achieve breast symmetry. Excess breast tissue can be removed from the larger breast, or different proportions of tissue can be removed from both breasts to reduce their size. Breast reduction may be recommended for women with breast asymmetry if their breasts are overly large, cumbersome, and painful.

Breast Lift

If your breasts are different in form or position, a breast lift may be the recommended treatment. Women whose breasts are pendulous or saggy due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, and/or aging may discover asymmetries in how their breasts have responded to these life circumstances. A breast lift can reshape and reposition the breasts so that they are both firm, perky, youthful, and balanced.

Breast Reconstruction

Some women have breast asymmetry because they needed to have breast tissue removed for cancer treatment. Breast reconstruction can correct asymmetry after a unilateral mastectomy by recreating a smooth and natural-looking breast on the affected side. This surgery can improve quality of life and confidence for women who have had surgery for breast cancer treatment.
