Breast Asymmetry

Asymmetrical breasts can come in all shapes and sizes, but they pose similar problems. Not only is it difficult to find bras that fit comfortably and clothes that don’t draw attention to your uneven cleavage, but having misshapen breasts can ruin your self-confidence.

Is this right for me?

If you have significant asymmetry then this surgery will be helpful for you. It is important that you take the time to think carefully about your reasons for wanting breast asymmetry surgery.

If you are planning on having a family/ have not completed your family, then your breasts are still going to go through shape and size changes. It might be better to wait until after this time before embarking on the surgery. Your surgeon will go through the surgery with you in detail, outlining all the risks and benefits, to make sure you get the result you desire.

If you are in good health but have deep concerns regarding the shape and feel of your breasts, and understand what the procedure involves then you are suitable for surgery.

What does this involve?

It is very rare to find a woman with perfectly symmetrical breasts. Breast Asymmetry Surgery makes it possible to create a more even bust. The larger breast is either reduced in size (surgical reduction of the larger breast/ Breast Reduction), or the smaller breast is enhanced (Breast augmentation). Breast enhancement can either be through a prosthesis (placing an implant into the smaller breast) or using your own tissue (fat transfer/ autologous tissue transfer). The asymmetry may only involve the nipple and or the areolas. You may therefore require a Nipple Correction and/or an Areola Correction

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recovery like?

Following your surgery, your breasts will be feeling sore, bruised and swollen for up to a week. We provide safe and effective painkillers to help ease any pain and discomfort. The dressings will stay in place for two weeks following surgery.

We recommend that you avoid returning to work for at least a week for optimal recovery and sufficient rest. It will be six weeks or more before you can resume playing sports or other strenuous activities.

You will be required to have follow up visits with your surgeon in order for surgical wounds to be checked and cleaned. Your surgeon will check on your progress and answer any questions you may have.
