What is breast asymmetry ?

Breast asymmetry refers to a noticeable difference in the appearance of breast size or shape when comparing one breast to the other. This can also include the position of the nipple. Asymmetry may occur due to underdevelopment or overdevelopment of one breast(s).

The great majority of women have mild breast asymmetry. However, when the asymmetry is significant, it may adversely affect the woman’s body image, her self-esteem and confidence.

Who is suitable for breast asymmetry surgery?

Patients come to have a consultation with Mr Shaaban because there are unhappy with significant differences between the size (and/or) shape of their breasts and would like to achieve greater breast symmetry. Given the natural asymmetry of most women, it is usually impossible to achieve perfectly symmetrical breasts. Despite this, Mr Shaaban can certainly work to make them more symmetrical, and often find that patients are extremely pleased with their results after surgery.

In order to be considered for breast reduction surgery, you must be at least 18 years old.

What happens during a breast asymmetry procedure?

The procedure depends on your chosen course of treatment, however, most breast asymmetry surgeries require a 2-night hospital stay.

The correction of breast asymmetry may combine a combination of a number of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic procedures Breast enlargement involves selecting implants to boost your cup size (information on breast enlargement in breast asymetry surgery) Breast Reduction involves the removal of tissue and breast uplift involves repositioning the nipples and moulding the breast into a new shape whilst removing excess skin.
