The vast majority of women have some degree of breast asymmetry and, in general, this situation often lived with complete naturalness. However, in some cases, this natural asymmetry occurs in an excessively strong and is felt by the patient as a real problem.

This situation is complex and important source of self-esteem issues, since the difference in shape and size between the two breasts may become very evident in swimwear and even in street clothes. It can also be a source of insecurity about personal and sexual relationships.


In this situation, many women live with their complex ignorance of the possible solutions to your breast asymmetry.


As you can treat breast asymmetry?


It is very important to know that each case of breast asymmetry is different; While some patients will benefit from breast implants of different sizes in one breast and the other, other patients will require deeper surgery your mammary gland and other get better results with a reduction or lift your chest. In general, in all cases a different each breast intervention will be required to achieve symmetry.


This is because the breast asymmetry may have different origins to be addressed as needed. That is why it is very important to consult with a plastic surgeon who can diagnose exactly what kind of problem we must treat each individual patient.


What results can I expect from surgery to correct breast asymmetry?


The key point to achieve a good result, in many cases, to reach that accurate diagnosis. To do this we now have tools-art imaging that allow us to calculate the differences in shape and volume between the two breasts. This analysis allows us to plan the surgery very precisely in order to get the most satisfactory result.


What is the ideal surgery for breast asymmetry moment?


Regarding ideal for surgery because of this moment, we must refer again to the diverse origins of this disease. Overall we expect the moment in the chest fully developed, about eighteen, to undertake the surgery.

However, there are some diseases such as Poland syndrome affecting the development of the female breast from the very beginning at puberty and, in our opinion, should be treated and then.


In short, breast asymmetry is complex and important source of insecurity for many women but in most cases it solution. In any case, the problem is crucial to consult with a specialist in plastic surgery as soon as it appears, jointly agree on a plan of action either immediately or delayed.
