Breast Asymmetry

While it is normal to have different sized breasts, occasionally breast asymmetry can be quite significant. With breast asymmetry correction, you can address a range of concerns and improve the balanced appearance of your breasts.

At Gabbay Plastic Surgery, we focus on helping patients achieve their goals with optimized procedures. Every breast asymmetry correction procedure is fully tailored to match your unique situation and provide the best outcome.

What Is Breast Asymmetry Correction?

Breast asymmetry correction aims to address any concerns about differences between your breasts. It can help change the size, shape, and position of your breasts to ensure they have a balanced and symmetrical look. Not only can it improve the cosmetic features, but it can improve comfort as well. Breasts that differ in size and shape can make wearing bras entirely uncomfortable.

We can help you achieve breast symmetry through:

  • Breast lifts
  • Breast augmentation
  • Nipple/Areola reduction
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast revision

Your unique surgery will depend on your situation and goals. Below is a quick overview of the various procedures that can help you achieve breast symmetry.

Breast Lift

Breast lift repositions one or both of your breasts. While it does not change the size, it can move your breasts into a perkier, more youthful positioning. Patients often have this procedure at the same time as breast augmentation.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation can improve the size of one or both of your breasts. This option is best for patients who have one breast that is significantly smaller than the other. However, you can also have implants of different sizes in both breasts. Choosing this option allows you to both enhance the size of your breasts while maintaining balance.

Nipple/Areola Reduction

Another common complaint patients have is their nipples are significantly different sizes. With nipple reduction, you can make one or both nipples/areolas smaller so their sizes match and look natural.

Breast Reduction

For many patients, breast reduction might be the best solution. Having one breast significantly larger than the other can cause a range of complications, including rashes and spinal problems. In these cases, you may see the best results by reducing the size of one or both breasts.

Breast Revision

Many patients come to use displeased with a breast procedure they received from another surgeon. When not done correctly, breast augmentation or a breast lift can leave you with uneven breasts. In these cases, you can have a breast revision procedure. This aims to correct the imperfections of your previous procedure and help you finally achieve your goals.

What Will Your Procedure Look Like?

Breast asymmetry correction will look different for every patient. Your unique procedure will depend on what surgeries you have chosen and whether you are altering one or both breasts. However, these procedures generally take several hours and are performed under general anesthesia. This ensure that you will be comfortable for the entire experience.

In most cases, we perform asymmetry correction as an outpatient procedure. This means you will be able to return home the same day as your surgery. However, you will need someone to drive you home.

Since these are surgical procedures, we will make appropriate incisions. While some minor scarring will occur, we take great measures to ensure they are as invisible as possible. These measures include:

  • Making incisions that can be hidden
  • Providing complete information on caring for scars
  • Making incisions as small as possible
  • Recovery & Downtime

Every breast asymmetry correction will be different. So your time recovering will depend on your unique treatment plan. However, most correction surgeries will have a minimum of two weeks for the initial recovery period. During this time, it is important to rest and allow your body to heal. You can expect swelling and discomfort for the first week or two, but this can be managed with medication.

Dr. Gabbay will provide you with instructions for ensuring a quicker and full recovery. Key aspects of this include avoiding physical strain and caring for the surgical sites.

As the swelling goes down, you should begin to see your final results. Typically, most patients will see their final results after about two months. If you have any questions while recovering, we are always here to provide help and information.

Is Breast Asymmetry Correction Right for Me?

Choosing to have breast asymmetry correction can be a challenge for some patients. It can be hard to define how much asymmetry is “too much.” Our philosophy is that if the size or shape of your breasts affects your overall confidence, then you could benefit from this procedure.

An ideal candidate for this surgery will also:

  • Have realistic and healthy goals
  • Be in overall good health (good health promotes healing and better results)
  • Currently be at a stable weight (significant weight changes can affect results)
  • Be non-smoking (tobacco consumption can interfere with healing)

The first step to see if you are a candidate is to come in for a consultation. During your personal meeting with Dr. Gabbay, he will provide you with complete information on all your procedure options. After examining your situation and your medical history, he can determine if you are a good candidate. The next step is then working on your personalized treatment plan built around your unique goals.

Combining Procedures

Many patients might want to address more than one feature of their breasts. Or, you might want to enhance the natural beauty of your breasts while also correcting asymmetry. Because of this, combining multiple breast procedures is a popular choice for asymmetry correction. During your consultation, Dr. Gabbay will provide complete information on the procedures available to help you reach your goals entirely.
