Breast asymmetry is a common condition where the breasts are noticeably different in size, shape or position. While slight variations are common, significant asymmetry can cause emotional distress and affect a person’s confidence. Fortunately, advances in plastic surgery have made it possible to correct breast asymmetry and restore balance.
Understanding Breast Asymmetry
Breast asymmetry can be attributed to various factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations or developmental abnormalities. The condition can occur in one or both breasts and may involve differences in size, shape, nipple position or overall breast contour.
Ideal Candidates for Breast Asymmetry Correction
Breast asymmetry correction is a highly personalized procedure tailored to each individual’s needs. While the specific criteria for candidacy may vary, here are some general factors that make someone a good candidate for breast asymmetry correction:
- Significant Breast Asymmetry: Candidates for breast asymmetry correction typically have noticeable differences in breast size, shape or position that cause emotional distress and impact their quality of life. If your breast asymmetry affects your self-confidence and you desire more balanced breasts, you may be a good candidate.
- Stable Physical and Emotional Health: Candidates must be in good overall health, both physically and emotionally. Before surgery, a thorough medical evaluation will be conducted to ensure that there are no underlying health issues that could pose a risk during the procedure or recovery.
- Non-Smokers: Smoking can impair healing and increase the risk of complications. Candidates for breast asymmetry correction are generally advised to be non-smokers or commit to quitting smoking for a specified period before and after the surgery.
- Fully Developed Breasts: Candidates need to have fully developed breasts before considering breast asymmetry correction. Younger people who have not yet reached full breast development may be advised to wait until their breasts have matured.
