You do not have to live with breasts that differ in size.

It could also signal something deeper happening within the body.

Breast Asymmetry Correction at the Clinic for Plastic Surgery

If these issues resonate with you, it may be time to consider our Houston breast asymmetry correction with premier breast surgeon, Dr. Sam Sukkar. The Clinic for Plastic Surgery offers a wide range of solutions for women dealing with asymmetrical breasts and other aesthetic breast issues such as ptosis.

What is Breast Asymmetry?

Breast asymmetry refers to breasts that are uneven in shape or size. While it is mainly an aesthetic concern, sudden asymmetry may be symptomatic of an underlying medical issue such as an injury, hormonal imbalance, cancer, benign growths, or even a recent pregnancy. If your breasts developed abnormally with one growing larger than the other, or have become unevenly shaped as you grew older, breast asymmetry correction may be appropriate. Those with health-related causes of breast asymmetry may need to treat the underlying cause first before looking into cosmetic or reconstructive surgical treatments.

Breast Asymmetry Correction Options

Here are a few options that Dr. Sukkar may discuss with you.

Breast Implants

Breast augmentation using saline or silicone breast implants can change the shape, size and projection of one or both breasts. Your surgeon may select two implants of differing sizes if you have notable asymmetry.

Fat Transfer

Transferring fat to the breasts is possible with fat injections. The fat comes from you, so it is a completely natural alternative to breast implants.

Breast Reduction

Women with one breast that is bigger than the other may opt for unilateral or bilateral reduction mammoplasty, which entails removing excess tissue of one or both breasts so they become smaller.

Breast Lift

If one breast sags while the other hasn’t, a breast lift can correct the issue and restore perkiness, especially after breastfeeding or weight loss.

Breast Asymmetry Correction Benefits

Correcting breast asymmetry can make fitting in blouses, brassieres, and swimwear easier. Many women also report feeling more confident during intimate relations and feeling more at ease knowing their appearance now closely resembles how they expected their breasts to develop after puberty.

Am I a good candidate for Breast Asymmetry Correction?

Anyone with variance in the size of their breasts may be eligible for corrective surgical procedures that address asymmetry. The ideal candidates have realistic expectations and understand that while surgery can make the breasts appear more balanced and uniform, the breasts may not look identical. You should have good mental and physical health and no contraindications to elective surgery. The minimum age in most cases is 18 years old.

Consultation and Preparation

The success of your surgical procedure depends on your consultation. Houston plastic surgeon, Dr. Sukkar, is a compassionate and knowledgeable surgeon that never rush the process. He offers a comfortable, professional environment where you can feel totally at ease discussing your aesthetic concerns. During your consultation for breast asymmetry correction Houston breast surgeon, Dr. Sam Sukkar, will examine you, discuss your medical history, and answer all your questions. After formulating your custom surgical plan, he may ask you to halt certain over-the-counter or prescribed medications leading up to your surgery. Lab work such as an MRI or ultrasound may be necessary to rule out an underlying health issue before proceeding with aesthetic surgical treatments.

Customizing Your Breast Surgery

Dr. Sukkar takes extra time planning each operation, ensuring your surgical plan reflects your unique needs. He bases his personalized recommendations on years of clinical research and knowledge of anatomy. Your CFPS surgeon will let you know how they plan to accomplish your goals surgically. For example, if you are considering breast implants, they will explain how implant sizes are measured and how different materials, such as silicone and saline, may impact your final results.

Combining Breast Surgeries

Your CFPS surgeon may suggest combined options if you have asymmetric breasts and issues such as sagging skin (ptosis). One possible combination is breast augmentation and breast lift surgery. Breast fat injections can also complement the results of other breast reshaping surgeries.

Your Breast Asymmetry Correction Surgery

Most patients undergo general anesthetic and stay in the operating room for approximately one to three hours. Your surgeon will make incisions following your surgical plan and reshape your breasts to improve symmetry and proportions. This may include adding volume, removing excess breast tissue, or tightening lax skin.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Following their uneven breast surgery, most patients take anywhere from a few days to up to two weeks off work and driving. Strenuous exercise and lifting heavy objects may be off-limits for four to six weeks. Soreness and bruising are usually at their worst in the first week or two. Any firmness should settle down over the first few weeks and continue to subside over the next six months to a year. Early on in recovery, one breast may appear more swollen than the other. Allow time for your breasts to settle before judging your final results. Your CFPS surgeon will follow up with you regularly to see how you are doing and provide necessary aftercare.
