Breast Surgery Can Restore Breast Symmetry

It would be ideal if a woman’s breasts were completely symmetrical in size, shape, and overall appearance but in reality, most have varying degrees of breast asymmetry. Breast augmentation, breast reduction, and/or breast lift surgery can be designed to reduce some of the breast asymmetry and give one’s body a more desirable appearance.

Characteristics and Causes of Breast Asymmetry

Breast asymmetry is characterized by measurable and visual differences in breast shape, size, position, firmness, and appearance as well as of the positions of the nipples/areolas. Most of the time, in fact, there are differences between the two sides that can be clearly seen when looking for them. It is rare to have virtual symmetry of one’s breasts.

Women with severe breast asymmetry may avoid wearing many types of clothes including swimsuits and engaging in certain types of physical activities. Due to embarrassment, their sex life may also be severely impacted or non-existent.

In most cases, breast asymmetry has a biological or genetic cause that could be related to hormonal changes during puberty, differences in the rate of breast development, skeletal deformities, fibroadenomas, cysts, lumps, or other medical conditions. Increased asymmetries can also be caused by factors in breast surgery including surgical complications. Regardless of the cause, Dr. Turkeltaub is often asked to correct breast asymmetry by performing one or more of the following breast procedures.

Breast Surgeries Can Offer a Solution

Noticeable breast asymmetries can cause psychological and emotional discomfort. Restoration of breast symmetry through one or more of the above procedures can improve your self-image and self-confidence.
