Uneven Breast: Corrective surgery options

It’s very common for most women’s breasts to be a touch uneven, but for some women the difference can be quite noticeable and their breasts may even be two different cup sizes. Along with not being able to find bras that fit and clothes that don’t draw attention to the asymmetry, having uneven breasts can often cause a crisis of confidence among many women.

If the difference in breast size is significant there are several surgical options that exist to correct the problem, from lifts to breast reduction or implants.

Symptoms of Breast Asymmetry

While you might think that having uneven breasts simply means you’ve got a big one and a smaller one, there are often a lot of other factors at play. Having asymmetric breasts can be related the volume of the breasts or, in some cases, to the shape of the breasts.
In some cases, asymmetry may be related to the position of the nipple areola complexes, while, in other cases, it may be related to deformities of the underlying chest wall.
Regardless of the cause, a cup size difference isn’t an unusual finding.
When this problem is encountered, a variety of surgical options are available to treat the problem.

Corrective Surgery Options

Because there are many different permutations of what uneven breasts can consist of, there are also lots of different ways to correct them as well. It’s important to remember that every type of correction surgery for asymmetric breasts is tailored to your individual needs, so depending on the situation it might mean making the smaller one bigger, the bigger one smaller, and it might mean correcting or not correcting things like nipple position and size etc.

Corrective options may involve either one (or a combination of) the following:

  • Breast Augmentation with different sized implants
  • Breast Augmentation + Lift
  • Breast Lift (no implants)
  • Breast Reduction
  • Nipple Repositioning
  • Different Breast Lift Techniques
  • Different shaped implants, profiles and sizes
