Breast asymmetry is a common issue for many women. Virtually no woman’s breasts are perfectly symmetrical, and it is completely normal to have one breast or areola that is larger or smaller than the other or to notice a difference in position or fullness between the two. In most instances, asymmetry is caused by genetics or may simply be the way the breast tissue forms. Other factors such as weight fluctuation, hormonal changes, accidents, surgeries, and cancer can also result in breast asymmetry.
While temporary solutions such as padded bras and inserts can get you by, you may prefer a more permanent way to feel comfortable and confident about your breasts in any situation. Fortunately, when breast asymmetry affects your confidence, our office provides multiple breast surgery options to address your concerns and provide a more balanced silhouette. Reach out to our trusted team to schedule a consultation to learn more about asymmetrical breast augmentation in Richmond.
Options for Correcting Breast Asymmetry
Most asymmetry or unevenness is not noticeable. However, having more significant differences in size or shape can cause insecurity or a lack of confidence in your appearance. This can be especially true when wearing bathing suits or lingerie or when you are intimate with your partner.
Asymmetrical breast augmentation in Richmond balances your breasts by addressing differences in size, shape, and nipple location. Breast reduction, breast lift, and breast augmentation surgery are your options for correcting breast asymmetry.
When you do not wish to enhance the size or volume of your breasts and instead want to match your size to the smaller breast or make both breasts smaller, breast reduction may be an excellent option for you. Breast reduction surgery removes fatty tissue from one or both breasts to achieve a more petite and symmetrical silhouette.
Breast Augmentation With Implants
Breast implants give your breasts a fuller, rounder shape. We usually insert an implant into both breasts to ensure consistent results. This approach is usually necessary to ensure the breasts’ size, shape, and texture match. When asymmetry is more pronounced, a smaller implant will be placed in the larger breast to accommodate the size difference.
Breast Augmentation With Fat Grafting
When the degree of asymmetry is more modest, fat grafting breast augmentation can provide evenness with the added benefit of a completely natural look and feel as well as a more toned physique. This is because liposuction of the mid-section, thighs, or buttocks is utilized to harvest the fat for transfer to the breasts.
If your breasts are in different positions on your chest or show signs of ptosis (sagging), we might recommend combining a breast lift with your augmentation surgery. This will elevate your breasts to a more youthful position and adjust the size and position of your areolas that may have become stretched or uneven over time.
Are You a Candidate for Asymmetrical Breast Augmentation?
When you are an adult who wishes to permanently correct breast asymmetry, you may be the ideal candidate for asymmetrical breast augmentation in Richmond. It is important to discuss any health conditions or medications that may put you at risk or impair the healing process. You should cease smoking for at least a few months before the procedure. The best candidates can keep a positive attitude from consultation to treatment and recovery. Having realistic expectations for restoring your breast and body image is essential.
The best solution for you depends on the amount of natural breast tissue you have, your desired breast size, and your preferences. We will help you select the best procedure or implant type for your goals and anatomy.
