Asymmetrical breasts are not uncommon and can be the source of embarrassment and low self-esteem. However, the problem can be corrected through surgical cosmetic procedures that include combinations of breast lift, reduction, and augmentation. The best long term results involve procedures that match breast volume, position, and contour, and implant size. Either silicone or saline implants can be used, both implants have their own benefits, and the choice between the two ultimately boils down to patient preference.
Recovery in East Lansing
Recovery following surgery to correct breast asymmetry varies depending on the type of procedure required. After a procedure in East Lansing, most women should expect to take a week off of work or other regular activity. Strenuous activity should be avoided the first two weeks and all post-operative directions should be followed carefully. Swelling and pain is not uncommon following surgery, and ice packs and the use of painkillers as directed will help to manage any discomfort.
