Uneven Breasts Are Really Common–Here’s What You Can Do
Breast asymmetry is a condition that leaves many women feeling self-consciousness and embarrassed. In fact, uneven breasts are more common than perfectly symmetrical breasts (some estimates say the condition affects up to 88% of women), although the degree to which breasts are uneven can differ quite a bit between individuals.
The Symmetry Solution
If your own significant breast asymmetry is bothersome, there’s a relatively simple—and surprising—fix: breast augmentation. Breast augmentation here in The Woodlands, TX, is often a solution for my patients who desire symmetrical breasts. Today’s breast augmentation isn’t completely about creating significantly larger breasts. Instead, the surgery can be adjusted and adapted to each patient’s exact specifications and to even reduce the appearance of asymmetry.
About Breast Asymmetry
It’s worth it to note that breast asymmetry can appear at any point in a woman’s life. Although many women have had uneven breasts since puberty, others may gradually develop the condition as a result of hormonal changes or pregnancy. A good example of this is model Gisele Bundchen. Last year, she revealed in an interview that she dealt with asymmetry after breastfeeding and pursued augmentation to even things out again.
Asymmetry doesn’t just refer to size, either. Breasts can also be differently shaped. In any case, most types of breast asymmetry can be corrected—or at least reduced—with breast augmentation. In fact, breast asymmetry is so common that most breast augmentation procedures do correct a small amount of asymmetry, whether the patient realizes she has it or not.
How Implants Help
Treating breast asymmetry with implants takes a bit of finesse. In all but the most extreme of cases, I use 2 implants. The smaller breast gets the larger implant, and vice versa. The shape of the breast implants is also an important consideration, and the 2 implants used when asymmetry is a concern are seldom exactly alike.
There’s no specific implant that I prefer when treating asymmetry. Like any breast augmentation, the ideal option depends on the individual patient. It’s about more than evening out the size and shape of your breasts. It’s also about meeting your aesthetic goals and considering your long-term lifestyle. Your new breasts shouldn’t just work for you for a short time. Instead, they should enhance your figure and perhaps your life for years to come.
Make the Most of Your Consultation
During your consultation, we can discuss your concerns about breast asymmetry. We’ll discuss what you can expect from your breast augmentation results and whether the surgery is a viable option for correcting your specific asymmetry. We’ll also discuss the origins of your symptoms, whether your unevenness appeared when your breasts developed or came later in life.
