Breast Asymmetry in New Jersey

Most women will notice changes in their breasts as they begin to age. Breast asymmetry can occur due to various life changes, and some women may feel embarrassed about the difference in size or shape. When minor differences occur, they are usually of no concern. However, when the difference is more noticeable, it can cause distress or anxiety for many women. Fortunately, several breast procedures can correct asymmetrical breasts to give them a more balanced and natural appearance.

What is Breast Asymmetry?

Board Certified Female Plastic Surgeon Dr. Beverly Friedlander

Breast asymmetry can occur in many forms. This condition can involve the size, shape, and position of a woman’s breasts as well as the position of the nipples and areolas. Asymmetry is usually not noticeable until after pregnancy and breastfeeding due to one breast having been favored by the baby or if one breast was more developed prior to pregnancy. Other types of asymmetry can occur from juvenile hypertrophy of the breast, which is a rare condition where one breast is significantly larger than the other. Traumatic injuries to the chest can also interfere with breast development and cause noticeable asymmetry.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Asymmetry Surgery?

Many women who struggle with asymmetry find themselves having trouble fitting into certain types of clothing. Others may feel self-conscious or anxious about becoming intimate with their partner. Patients interested in correcting breast asymmetry can undergo plastic surgery to correct the following issues:

  • Breasts that are different sizes
  • Uneven shape
  • Nipple-areolar complex asymmetry
  • Uneven position on the chest wall
  • Differing degrees of sagging

What Is the Treatment for Breast Asymmetry?

There are various breast surgeries that Dr. Friedlander can perform to help you feel more beautiful and confident. The following procedures can address breast asymmetry:

Breast Augmentation:

Asymmetry can be corrected using implants of different sizes and dimensions, such as saline, silicone, Natrelle INSPIRA™ “gummy bear” implants, or IDEAL IMPLANT®. However, implants may lead to additional asymmetry and should be used only for larger size discrepancies and after thorough discussion during your consultation.

Breast Lift:

Can improve the overall position of one or both breasts by lifting and bringing them into balance with each other.

Breast Reduction:

Will reduce the size of the larger breast to correct asymmetry. This procedure can also reposition and resize the nipples so that they appear more balanced and symmetrical.

Breast Enhancement With Fat Transfer:

Uses fat from areas of the body, like the abdomen, back, or thighs, that is injected into the breasts for a more balanced and natural appearance.

What Is Recovery Like From Breast Asymmetry Surgery?

Following your procedure, swelling and bruising will occur but should begin to resolve after a few days. You will notice that swelling may not be symmetrical if different procedures were performed on each breast. Make sure to avoid all strenuous activities for at least four weeks, as this can affect healing or lead to bleeding. You can typically return to work one week after your surgery. You will begin to notice improvement in the size and shape of your breasts as they continue to heal.

What Can I Expect After Breast Asymmetry Surgery?

You can expect long-lasting results that will produce a bustline that is balanced and aesthetically pleasing, as well as a boost in confidence. Final results will become apparent a few months after your procedure.
