breast asymmetry

Breast Asymmetry is very common. Very few women have perfectly symmetrical breasts or “twins”. More than likely, the breasts are “sisters”. It is quite normal to notice some slight differences in the size and shape of your breasts. But on some occasions, this asymmetry can be more severe. Dr. Brown can correct it if it makes you feel self-conscious or has become a source of embarrassment.

Breast asymmetry can be caused by a variety of factors including pregnancy, breastfeeding, uneven development during puberty, uneven shrinkage due to aging, mastitis (infection), weight gain, weight loss, prior breast augmentation resulting in asymmetry, breast reduction surgery, and mastectomy.  Dr. Brown can treat it with a more minor procedure and sometimes more complex operations. Recovery varies from procedure to procedure, but usually, patients are back to light duty work two to seven days after surgery.  At your consultation, Dr. Brown will perform a thorough physical exam and tailor a plan that will address the problems you may have.
