Few women have perfect breast symmetry. It is entirely normal to have slight differences in the shape and size of your breasts. In most cases, these differences are so minor that they are not noticeable. Unfortunately, some women have pronounced asymmetry that is obvious even at a casual glance. If you are embarrassed or self-conscious because of asymmetrical breasts, Indianapolis breast surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata can help you correct this problem with breast augmentation.
Some of the most common causes of breast asymmetry are:
- Breastfeeding and pregnancy
- Uneven adolescent development
- Uneven shrinking as you age
- Mastitis (infection caused by breastfeeding)
Dr. Fata will customize your breast augmentation to meet your specific needs. In order to correct your asymmetry, he may recommend placing breast implants in only one of your breasts, or placing different sized breast implants in both of your breasts. Another approach for severe asymmetry is to perform a breast reduction on the larger breast and an augmentation on the smaller breast, not only bringing them into symmetry, but creating more ideal proportions for your figure.
