Breast Asymmetry FAQs
Will my breasts be perfect after the surgery?
When correcting breast asymmetry, the goal is to achieve maximum improvement. The degree of asymmetry will determine the likelihood of achieving a perfect, a near perfect, or simply an improved breast symmetry and contour.
If my asymmetry is corrected by different sized implants, and then I become pregnant and breastfeed, will some form of asymmetry return?
Probably, yes. In order to correct any resulting asymmetry, we would have to adjust the implants to again balance the breasts. An alternative would be to have your gynecologist suppress milk production, although this is not something that we would recommend. It is possible that if you start with relatively small breasts, the size difference between the breasts may be minimal and not require any additional treatment.
What are other potential deformities of the breast?
- Tubular Breast (Long and tubular shaped breast with a narrow base)
- Scoliosis (a back deformity with breast consequences)
- Pectus Excavatum (depressed Breast Bone)
- Pectus Carnatum (prominent Breast Bone)
- Surgically Deformed Breasts
All of these conditions can be corrected or improved but are highly individualized to a patient’s specific needs.
