How Can Augmentation Correct Breast Asymmetry?

So much of a woman’s confidence comes from the way she perceives her body, and a woman’s breasts are a major contributing factor to that perception. Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries for a reason: women gain self-esteem and confidence when they are pleased with the appearance of their breasts. Unfortunately, they can lose that same self-esteem when they are not satisfied with their breast aesthetics. Asymmetrical breasts can significantly damage a woman’s self-image and create unnecessary feelings of shame, which causes them to hide or pull away from social or intimate interactions. For these women, breast augmentation can help ease these emotions and allow women to love their breasts.

Some Asymmetry Is Normal

The vast majority of women experience some form of breast asymmetry, whether it be in size, shape, or position. Fortunately, many women’s asymmetry is not noticeable; some women may not even be aware that their breasts are asymmetrical. Breast asymmetry is defined as a difference in the form, position, or volume of the breasts, and while some degree of this is invisible to the naked eye, more significant degrees of asymmetry are noticeable. Between the negative emotional impact and the difficulty in finding clothing that fits properly, asymmetrical breasts provide many hardships. If your asymmetry is easily noticeable, then breast augmentation in one or both breasts can correct the issue by evening out your frame and enhancing your confidence.

Even Out With Augmentation

Breast augmentation with implants can aid breast asymmetry that is due to a difference in volume or form. A breast implant can be inserted into the smaller breast to match it to the larger breast (if you are pleased with the size and shape of that breast), or implants can be placed in both breasts to create additional balance. If an implant is used in both breasts, the size of the implants will ultimately differ, but you and your surgeon will work together to ensure a cohesive aesthetic is achieved. Even with augmentation, completely symmetrical breasts cannot be guaranteed; however, you will discover that any unevenness there is will only be noticeable to you and will be on par with the significant majority of women.

Alternatives to Breast Augmentation

Some women who experience breast asymmetry have no issues with volume or form but instead have a difference in breast position. For these women, a breast lift may be able to even out breast position with little-to-no change of breast volume. Alternatively, if a woman is more pleased with the size of her smaller breast, then breast reduction surgery will reduce the larger breast to match the smaller one. Whatever the cause of your breast asymmetry, there is a breast procedure that can work for you.

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.

If you have unwanted breast asymmetry, one of these procedures can help you achieve an even and balanced breast appearance. Call (703) 287-8277 or contact us online to request your consultation with Dr. Alex Mesbahi today.
