Most women have some differences between their breasts, referred to as breast asymmetry. While most differences are slight and unnoticeable, some types of breast asymmetry are more pronounced. To create more balance between the size and shape of the breasts, plastic surgery may be required. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills offers breast asymmetry correction to create beautiful, balanced breasts.

Breast asymmetry can refer to a lack of symmetric breast volume, breast shape, nipples, nipple-areolar complexes, and other details of the breasts. Breast asymmetry can be congenital, developmental, acquired, and post-partum (after childbirth).

  • Usually, congenital breast asymmetry involves other parts of the body’s anatomy, with one side of the body having incomplete development of the muscles behind the breast.
  • Developmental breast asymmetry refers to changes that occur in the breasts during development, especially puberty.
  • Acquired breast asymmetry refers to the fact that breasts can be uneven because of prior breast surgery. A breast lift, breast reduction or breast augmentation can leave the breasts uneven following surgery.
  • Post-partum breast asymmetry refers simply to the fact that during pregnancy and after childbirth, the breasts go through many changes, primarily due to the effect of estrogen.

Breast asymmetry can be corrected by a breast augmentation, breast lift, or mastopexy, which is a breast reduction and augmentation/mastopexy together. The right choice of the procedure varies from one patient to another. The incisions to correct breast asymmetry have to do with the choice of operation. Dr. Anastasatos prefers minimal incision procedures. The degree of breast asymmetry is important for the final result of the breast procedure. If there are severe degrees of breast asymmetry, then more than one operation may be needed to achieve ideal symmetry.

Areas of Breast Asymmetry

The main areas of breast asymmetry include the shape, volume, nipples, areolas, and inframammary folds. The main goals of breast asymmetry correction surgeries are to correct all the underlying reasons that create breast asymmetry. Some of the areas of breast asymmetry we correct include:

Breast Asymmetry Or Uneven Breasts

Asymmetry is a compound word. It comes from two Greek words “a” and “symmetry” and means lack of symmetry. Breast asymmetry means lack of breast symmetry.

Breast asymmetry can refer to lack of symmetric breast volume, breast shape, nipples, nipple-areolar complexes, and other details of the breasts. Breast asymmetry can be congenital, developmental, acquired, and post-partum (after childbirth).

Congenital breast asymmetry means that are congenital reasons affecting breast symmetry. Usually, congenital breast asymmetry involves other parts of the body’s anatomy. A common example I see in congenital breast asymmetry is Poland’s syndrome. Poland’s syndrome refers to the incomplete development of the muscles and breasts of one side of the body. The other side is unaffected. So on the affected side, the breast is underdeveloped, and also the associated breast muscles behind the breast are underdeveloped. In some cases, the upper arm muscles can be underdeveloped as well.

Developmental breast asymmetry refers to changes that occur in the breasts during development especially puberty. These are common and typically are isolated meaning they affect only the breasts and breast structures.

Acquired breast asymmetry refers to the fact that breasts can be uneven because of prior breast surgery. A breast lift, or breast reduction or breast augmentation can leave the breasts uneven following surgery. This is a common reason why patients consult me for breast revision.

Post-Partum breast asymmetry refers simply to the fact that during pregnancy and after childbirth the breasts go through many changes primarily due to the effect of the estrogens. The breast changes that occur as a result make patients want to have breast asymmetry correction in combination with a breast lift a breast augmentation.

By nature, most women have some degree of breast asymmetry. Very rarely do I see breasts that are perfectly symmetric. I always point out to them what exactly the differences are between their breasts especially when I do breast augmentation. When a woman has breast augmentation the differences of the breasts can appear magnified because simply the breasts are larger. Every time I perform a breast augmentation I get to improve on breast symmetry.

When I perform the breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast reduction procedures one of the main goals of the surgery is to create breast symmetry.

The main areas of Breast Asymmetry are:

  1. Asymmetry of the shape. Uneven breast shapes.
  2. Asymmetry of the breast volume. Uneven volumes
  3. Asymmetry of the nipples. Uneven nipples. Uneven nipple size.
  4. Asymmetry of the nipple-areolar complexes. Uneven areolas.
  5. Asymmetry of the inframammary folds.

The main goals of breast asymmetry are to correct all the underlying reasons that create breast asymmetry.

How do I correct Breast Asymmetry?

To properly correct breast asymmetry I properly identify the causes and then treat them.

Breast asymmetry can be corrected by breast augmentation, breast lift or mastopexy, breast reduction, and augmentation/mastopexy together. The right choice of the procedure varies from one patient to another. The incisions to correct breast asymmetry have to do with the choice of operation. I prefer minimal incision procedures.

The degree of breast asymmetry is important for the final result of the breast procedure. If there are severe degrees of breast asymmetry then more than one operation may be needed to achieve ideal symmetry.

A special kind of breast asymmetry is called “Tubular Breast Deformity” or “Tuberous Breast Deformity”. There are many different presentations to his condition. Therefore what I do for each patient is different. The principles of treatment of “Tuberous Breast Deformity” are:

  1. Make the Nipple-Areolar Complex smaller.
  2. Add breast volume with a breast implant.
  3. Make the breast round as opposed to a tube shape.
  4. Add volume to the lower part of the breast also called the Lower breast pole.
  5. Lower the infra-mammary breast fold.

Breast asymmetry correction requires a plastic surgeon with expertise in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. The plastic surgeon that understands the proper anatomy of the breasts is capable to offer the best treatment for breast asymmetry correction.
