25 Feb How Breast Augmentation Corrects Asymmetry
Noticeably different sized breasts is one of the many cosmetic issues that Beverly Hills patients are concerned with. It is a known fact that not every woman’s breasts are perfectly symmetrical breasts. The goal of breast augmentation is to personally transform the patient’s size, shape and volume with breast implants, but many wish to address asymmetrical breasts by altering one or both breasts to be even in appearance.
What Causes Asymmetry?
The case of asymmetrical breasts has no clear reason why one breast is smaller than the other. In most cases, the condition is simply due to genetics and inherited body type. Other possible factors that can be correlated with genetics, include:
- Weight gain
- Hormonal changes at adolescence
- Weight loss
The end result of these factors leaves one breast slightly higher or lower, shaped differently, or larger than the other breast. In some instances the patient’s nipples may be noticeably different in size or position. With the right approach, Dr. Grigoryants can correct these types of asymmetry to ensure that a woman feels confident with her feminine physique.
Uneven breasts can make a woman feel very self-conscious about breast appearance, in some cases the breasts are noticeably different by a cup size or more. This also makes women feel discouraged when it comes to finding the right bra or bikini top that fit and supports breasts correctly.
Depending on the patient’s goals, making breasts symmetrical can be corrected by breast reduction or augmentation. Breast implants can resolve the unevenness for women who wish to add volume to the small breast to match the size and shape of the larger breast. Patients dealing with asymmetry may also enhance both breasts by adding volume for smaller-breasted women. For this procedure, a smaller implant will be placed in the larger breast to match the larger implant for symmetrical results.
According to a study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal researchers found a significant increase in patients’ quality of life after having treatment for breast asymmetry. Measuring eight dimensions of health status, research revealed significant improvement in physical, social and psychological well-being.
No surgeon will ever promise perfection, but in the hands of an experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Grigoryants, breast augmentation can help you achieve fuller and even breasts suitable to your goals.
