Can Breast Implants Correct Breast Asymmetry?

Posted on: February 21, 2022 In: Breast Asymmetry, Breast Augmentation

Whether it’s something you notice in private or something that others have pointed out to you, for some women, asymmetrical breasts can be an embarrassing thing that causes a lack of self-confidence. Fortunately, with the development of modern techniques and technology, board-certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Lee Colony have a variety of tools and procedures at their disposal to help people with various body contour concerns, including asymmetrical breasts.

What Causes Breast Asymmetry?

In most cases, breast asymmetries are due to simply the way your genes have constructed your body; for whatever reason, one side is shaped or sized differently than the other. However, other factors can cause formerly symmetrical breasts to now appear asymmetric due to causes like the following:

  • Aging and sagging
  • Surgery or breast trauma
  • Breastfeeding
  • Changes in weight

If any of these have affected your body contour in a way that makes you feel less like your ideal self, there is likely a breast enhancement option for you, including a modest breast implant surgery.

How to Make Breasts Symmetrical

The right procedure to make breasts more symmetrical depends on the type of asymmetry you experience. When it comes to sagging breast tissue, breast implants may not be the only solution. Dr. Colony commonly performs both breast augmentation and breast lift surgeries as part of a complete rejuvenation of the breasts to both reduce asymmetry and enhance overall volume. In some cases, the breasts may even need to be reduced to achieve a patient’s ideal figure.

Can Breast Augmentation Fix Uneven Breasts?

Sometimes, yes. By using two different sized breast implants, Dr. Colony can enhance the size of both breasts while bringing them into balance for a perfectly naturally proportioned look and feel. If you’re okay with having larger breasts (even only slightly larger), breast implants can be a long-lasting and effective way to fix uneven breasts.

Sometimes, implants aren’t the only way to address breast size differences. Another technique for breast augmentation uses fat transfer from other areas of the body that have excess fat. This fat grafting breast augmentation creates nearly permanent augmentation results with fully customizable enhancement to help increase breast size in the right places for each breast. Fat transfer does not create as dramatic results as breast implants but does have the two-in-one benefit of both reducing fat and enhancing breast volume.
