Asymmetry Corrective Breast Surgery
Plastic Surgery for Breast Asymmetry involves reducing, augmenting, re-shaping or a combination of all three techniques to produce a bust line that is symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing.
Some women have slight differences in breast shape and nipple position while other women have significant differences.
Breast Asymmetry Corrective Surgery is performed for the following reasons:
Tuberous or constricted breast deformity is a severe form of breast asymmetry where the breast doesn’t form correctly from birth. This results in a constricted appearance of the breast, lack of breast volume and ‘pouty’ appearance of the nipple.
To correct this deformity a combination of breast shaping, nipple shaping, and implant techniques are required. Occasionally two procedures are necessary.
Poland Sequence is a congenital error in the development of the chest wall and upper limb that results in abnormally developed breasts and breast asymmetry. Poland sequence can be corrected with implants and/or the patient’s own tissue.
BREAST ASYMMETRY CORRECTIVE SURGERY TECHNIQUES
The approach depends on the underlying asymmetry and what the patient desires. Often both breasts need to be operated on with different objectives. For example, a Mastopexy on one breast and a breast reduction or augmentation on the other breast are required for symmetry.
