Breast asymmetry is very common, and it becomes a problem when a woman faces difficulties fitting on clothes, and feels discomfort or fear to become intimate. Before the surgery, the ideal size of the breasts must be identified. Either the smaller breast has to be enhanced with an implant or the larger breast has to be reduced. In some cases, the best result is achieved when the same procedure (breast augmentation or breast reduction) is done to both breasts. The result of the surgery is reached then the nipple height or areola width is symmetrical. Even the slightest breast asymmetry correction can increase a woman’s self-confidence significantly.
Surgery. Breast asymmetry correction is done in general anesthesia or in intravenous sedation with local anesthesia. Breasts are bandaged or put into a special bra and patients are allowed to go home on the same day. Patients will usually be able to go back to work after one week if the job does not require a lot of movement.
