Come closer and we’ll tell you a secret…no-one has perfectly symmetrical breasts! If you’re one of the many women who has uneven breasts, you’re not alone. Sometimes, though, that’s not enough, so let’s talk Breast Surgery.
Slightly Unbalanced? You’re Not Alone
Are you one of the many women who have one breast slightly (or not so slightly) larger than the other? We’re here to tell you that perfectly symmetrical breasts are actually pretty uncommon. Many women have uneven breasts, and it can range from one nipple that sits lower than the other, or boobs that project at different angles. While it’s all well and good for us to sit here and say, “don’t worry about it, it’s normal,” we understand that, sometimes, the difference can get quite uncomfortable.
Uneven breasts can impose self-confidence issues, limit your bra and swimwear options, and impact the type of clothing you wear. For some clients, the difference between their boobs can be as much as 2 cup sizes—a very difficult shopping assignment to say the least! Our expert Plastic Surgeons are highly skilled in offering breast surgery for uneven breasts. Before we go over the options, let’s look at what causes asymmetrical breasts in more detail.
What Causes Uneven Breasts?
Uneven breasts (asymmetrical breasts) can be caused by a range of factors. These include:
- Hormonal changes
- Weight fluctuations (loss or gain)
- Traumatic injuries
While completely normal and ok, we understand that significant cases of uneven breasts can be embarrassing and uncomfortable for some clients. If the difference in your breasts is extreme, and it’s affecting you both in and out of clothing, there are surgical options available to help restore your confidence. As with all forms of breast surgery, it’s important that you carefully consider your options in consultation with at least one trusted health professional (e.g. your General Practitioner and/or your Surgeon). Getting plastic surgery is a huge decision and not something that should be made lightly.
Breast Surgery to Correct Asymmetry
To determine if breast surgery is going to be an effective way of correcting your uneven breasts, and what kind of procedure to have, you first need to work with a Surgeon so that they can assess your specific case. The necessary procedure will be tailored to your individual needs and based on:
- The size of the uneven breasts
- Whether there’s a difference in nipple size or shape
- The position of the nipples
- Any other breast conditions present (sagginess, lumps etc)
Breast Surgery Options
There are numerous breast surgery options when it comes to uneven breasts. In cases of minor asymmetry, your Surgeon may just suggest a Breast Augmentation using a different sized implant for each breast. Alternatively, Breast Lift with or without Augmentation is a particularly effective option for clients looking to enhance the contour, firmness, and appearance of the breasts.
The full list of surgical options available through CosMediTour includes:
- Breast Augmentation (with different sized implants)
- Breast Augmentation + Lift
- Breast Lift (no implants)
- Breast Reduction
- Nipple Lift
- Breast Scoring
- Alternative Breast Lift Techniques
To find out more about any of these options, submit an enquiry to our friendly Client Support Team, or phone us on 1300 000 633.
Will Full Breast Symmetry Be Achieved?
While full symmetry can never be guaranteed, our Surgeons are experts when it comes to making breasts as even as possible (see some of their results here). It’s important to be realistic about your results. Everyone heals differently and, during the first 6 months after surgery, your breasts may settle at different rates.
Remember we’re here to help and, as a CosMediTour client, you have access to your own personal Client Manager who can contact your Surgeon on your behalf.
