Developmental breast asymmetry is a natural condition affecting many women whereby uneven breast development leads to breasts of different sizes or shapes. Many patients have confided that their concerns about breast asymmetry often lead to feelings of diminished self-esteem, intimacy issues, and practical problems associated with poorly fitting clothes.
Although developmental breast asymmetry is usually noted in late adolescence, many women wait unnecessarily until early adulthood to seek medical attention. Fortunately, the development of new techniques borrowing from the field of breast reconstruction, enlargement and lifting, have enabled our surgeons to “perform miracles” for many patients. Creating breast symmetry and balance can restore a woman’s quality of life in immeasurable ways. Each patient’s condition is unique and requires a highly individualized treatment plan, and at Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey, we would be pleased to show you how we can help.
Breast asymmetry correction may involve the use of implants to increase the size and volume of one breast, or a reduction to decrease the size of one breast to match the other. In some cases, a breast lift may be necessary to reposition one breast to match the other. Our plastic surgeons will work with you to determine the best approach to achieve your desired result.
There are various methods to correct breast asymmetry. During your consultation, one of our skilled plastic surgeons will examine your breasts and help you determine the best type of corrective surgery for your desired results. In some cases, breast implant surgery to increase the size of the smaller breast may be necessary. In other instances, breast reduction surgery on the larger breast may be a better option. The goal of the surgery is to create breasts that are symmetrical in size and shape. We may recommend a breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, or a combination of these procedures to achieve the desired result.
