Different Causes And Types Of Breast Asymmetry

Breast asymmetry is common, affecting more than half of all women, and occurs when one breast has a different size, volume, position, or form from the other. There are numerous reasons why breasts may change in size or volume, including:

  • Trauma
  • Puberty
  • Other hormonal changes

There are many types and combinations of breast asymmetry, some examples of which include:

  • Breast hypertrophy and breast hypoplasia, or one large breast and one small breast
  • Asymmetric breast hypoplasia is when both breasts are small, but one is smaller than the other
  • Unilateral or asymmetric breast ptosis which is when the breasts droop, or one breast hangs lower than the other
  • Breast positional asymmetry is when one breast sits higher or lower than the other
  • Areolar asymmetry refers to differences in nipple-areolar size, projection, or bulge
  • Tuberous breast condition, which is an unusual breast shape with varying degrees of breast constriction, areolar herniation, size discrepancy, and asymmetry

A patient may have one, several, or all of the above examples of asymmetry. Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Courtney will recommend a plastic surgery treatment plan that will correct breast asymmetry and is tailored to your unique anatomical requirements and personal aesthetic goals.

Approaches To Correcting Breast Asymmetry

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation can correct asymmetrical breasts so that the smaller one matches the larger one. For this kind of surgery, Dr. Courtney will use an implant to increase the cup size of the smaller breast. If you want both breasts to be larger, a second, smaller implant can be placed in the larger breast.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery may be more appropriate, such as when you want the larger breast to match the cup size of the smaller breast. Extra breast tissue is removed to reduce the larger breast until it matches the smaller one.

For some women, a combination of breast surgeries will be appropriate. Dr. Courtney can simultaneously use a lift, augmentation, or reduction to create breasts that look and feel natural while also being symmetrical.

Breast Revision

Breast revision surgeries can produce uneven breast size and shape. Dr. Courtney can surgically correct breast asymmetry caused by mismatched implants or the difference between a natural breast and an implant.
