Millions of women worldwide are uncomfortable with the size, shape, and appearance of their breasts. The most common issue is uneven breasts, and many see it as some rite of passage as breast shape changes for various reasons throughout life.

Breast asymmetry is a condition where breasts get lopsided for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Virginal hypertrophy following puberty
  • Pregnancy
  • Mastectomy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Failed breast augmentation

Can Uneven Breasts Be Fixed?           

Uneven breasts are fixed through a correcting breast augmentation procedure. According to the severity, augmentation procedure customization helps suit the needs of each patient.  

What Are Your Options?

Mild to very uneven breasts can be fixed by the procedural options below.

  1. Breast augmentation (Implants)

Differently sized implants are inserted surgically in front of the pectoral muscles. This strategic insertion is to give it a dramatic look while reducing recovery time and discomfort. 

For a subtler look with better support, you can opt for your implants behind the pectoral muscle. The implants are less visible, and the chances of sagging due to age are minimal.

  1. Breast Lift

Due to its ability to firm up the breast tissue, a breast lift is requested more frequently than breast augmentation. A breast lift fixes uneven breasts by;

  • Restoring and improving breast shape
  • Restoring firmness
  • Lifting sag
  • Reducing areola size

A breast lift often works for uneven breasts caused by pregnancy, breastfeeding, and illness.

  1. Breast Reduction

Living with a larger or heavier breast can cause lumbar issues. Breast reduction surgery fixes asymmetry to restore balance. In addition, it alleviates breathing problems, rashes and resolves unfitting clothes.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Breast Augmentation

Benefits of having asymmetry fixed are:

  • Alleviates back pain, skeletal deformity, and poor posture 
  • Restores confidence
  • Better fit into clothes

Drawbacks for breast augmentation are:

  • Long recovery time
  • Risk of complications
  • Complicated mammograms
