Breast asymmetry is extremely common, but it can be more noticeable in some people more than others. While it occurs in both men and women, it tends to be more noticeable for women due to increased breast growth. If there is a significant difference in size or shape, it can lead to confidence issues.
What causes breast asymmetry?
There are a number of possible underlying causes of breast asymmetry, with Poland’s Syndrome being a potential contributor. This causes the size of one breast to be smaller than the other. It tends to be more common on the right breast and is thought to develop if there was insufficient blood circulation to the breasts throughout childhood. Whatever the cause, there are ways to rectify breast asymmetry via surgery.
What techniques are required to treat breast asymmetry?
A number of different techniques can be used to correct breast asymmetry. It will depend upon how significant the size or shape difference is. The smaller breast can be enhanced via expanders or implants, or the larger breast could be reduced. A mastopexy, or uplift, could also be used on the bigger breast. You will be told which treatment best fits you during your consultation.
