Most women don’t have perfectly symmetrical breasts. It’s normal for breasts to be slightly uneven or even a little misshaped. Still, while breasts can have differences in both size and shape, there are cases where unevenness is more noticeable and severe.
Severe breast asymmetry can lead to low self-confidence and even shame over how you look. Luckily, Aesthetic Surgical Images can help you with this cosmetic problem. Breast augmentation at our clinic is an effective way to correct breast asymmetry.
With this procedure, you can make your breasts look more natural, symmetrical, and full. This way you feel more comfortable in your body no matter where you are or what you are doing. Keep reading to find out more about breast augmentation and how it can correct asymmetrical breasts!
What Causes Breast Asymmetry?
Breast asymmetry can be caused by several different factors. For some women, it’s due to the natural aging process. As we age our breasts begin to lose their shape and firmness which can lead to an uneven look. This unevenness can also develop during adolescence, as breasts sometimes don’t grow perfectly symmetrical as we enter puberty.
In more extreme cases, women can experience a sudden growth of one of their breasts. Also known as virginal hypertrophy, this can appear in teenagers and adults and may lead to feelings of self-consciousness. Other medical conditions can cause the breast to swell or even shrink to abnormal sizes.
But typically, a lot of women lose the symmetry of their breasts during pregnancy or while they breastfeed. Breast infections during breastfeeding can also cause this cosmetic issue. And, any extreme weight loss or gain can lead to asymmetry, as well.
Finally, poorly done breast augmentations or breast surgery are pretty common causes of asymmetry. This is why it is so important to get a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon before you proceed with any major surgery.
How Exactly Can Breast Augmentation Correct Breast Asymmetry?
Breast asymmetry is fixable with the right surgical techniques and the expertise of a board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Edney and the team at Aesthetic Surgical Images have the training and the credentials to help reshape asymmetrical breasts. But, how exactly can this procedure correct your breasts and give you the results you want to see?
How your specific breast augmentation is done will depend on the severity of your asymmetry. In some situations, one breast might just need minor adjustment. In other cases, your surgeon might have to correct both breasts with implants or with a reduction.
At Aesthetic Surgical Images, Dr. Edney is dedicated to patient-centered care. He will discuss your beauty goals and develop a plan that will lead to the best surgical outcomes. With severe cases of asymmetry, breast augmentation is one of the best ways to deal with this issue. Some women might need an implant in one breast and a reduction in the other breast to re-create symmetry.
Other options include a breast lift coupled with breast augmentation. This might be necessary if you have breast shrinkage due to a medical condition. Dr. Edney might also suggest different size breast implants in each breast to correct the asymmetry. Again, though, each case is different so we suggest booking a consultation with us before you undergo any major procedures. Our contact information will be provided at the end of the post.
When Should You Get Breast Augmentation to Correct Breast Asymmetry?
We’ve talked about the ways breast augmentation can fix asymmetry, but how do you know if you need surgery to correct your breast shape and size. We’ll outline what you should do in this section of the blog. Over the years, many women find that their breasts naturally lose their evenness and perkiness. As a result, you might feel it is the right time to get a breast augmentation.
Uneven breasts are not dangerous and do not cause major medical issues. However, asymmetry in the chest can result in major discomfort in your day-to-day life. For instance, it can be harder to find clothes that look good on you. Some women even have a difficult time finding attire that fits them well. Purchasing quality bras, athletic wear, and other shapewear can also be made more difficult for women with this issue.
If your breast is noticeably uneven and causes embarrassment or self-esteem issues, you might want to consider getting a breast augmentation. Dr. Edney can help you with this decision during a consultation. With his expertise, he can analyze your breast symmetry and tell you whether surgery is the right option for you.
Not all breast asymmetry needs to be treated with breast augmentation, though, especially if your case is not as severe. For some women, a breast lift or breast reduction might be a better alternative treatment option. Dr. Edney will customize your cosmetic procedure to fit your situation.
