Corrective breast surgery can address a variety of issues, including previously botched breast augmentation surgery. If your breasts appear asymmetrical, corrective breast surgery can also provide incredible benefits through the use of reshaping techniques that drastically improve symmetry and balance the upper body. While symmetrical breasts are not the norm, some women have substantially mismatched or uneven breasts, making them an ideal candidate for this surgical procedure.
Am I An Ideal Candidate for Corrective Breast Surgery?
Corrective breast surgery can be used to address several different issues, including:
- Uneven or lopsided breasts
- Deflated saline implants in one or both breasts, making them appear unnaturally flat or small
- One breast is visibly higher than the other
- The breasts have a noticeable difference in cup size
- The nipples are asymmetrical or uneven
- One breast is fuller at the top
- One breast is bottom-heavy or an old implant has bottomed out
Why Are My Breasts Asymmetrical?
How a person’s breasts look has a lot to do with genetics, though there are also several other factors that can partake in creating asymmetrical breasts. This includes:
- Poor posture and improper body alignment
- Hormonal imbalances caused by pregnancy or menopause
- Excessive weight loss or weight gain
- Previous breast augmentation surgeries
- Stronger muscles on one side of the chest
To correct discrepancies in the breasts, your plastic surgeon will discuss a number of strategies that are available to you. Depending on the issue you are trying to correct, you might need breast implants in different sizes to eliminate their asymmetrical appearance, a breast reduction, or a breast lift, to name a few. Ultimately, whichever approach your plastic surgeon uses, the goal is to improve the visual symmetry and evenness of your breasts.
If you are concerned about needing surgery on both breasts to achieve symmetry, it is possible to obtain the even results you desire without operating on both breasts, though it is often recommended to operate on both to ensure they both have the same amount of natural tissue or implanted volume on both sides. No two patients are exactly alike, so the only way to know for certain what you can expect from corrective breast surgery is by scheduling an appointment with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options and what you hope to achieve from this surgical procedure.
