Correcting Asymmetry With A Breast Lift

Correcting Asymmetry With A Breast LiftIf your breasts differ in size or shape, you’re not alone: very few women have breasts that match exactly. But if your breast asymmetry is very serious or affects how you feel about yourself, you may want to consider corrective surgery. Scottsdale’s experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richard Brown offers a number of solutions that can improve your appearance and help you regain your self-confidence.

Although many causes can lead to breast asymmetry, it is often congenital in nature, meaning you’re simply predisposed to the condition at birth. Life events, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, and significant weight change, can also cause breasts to shrink or grow by different amounts.

Treatment of breast asymmetry will depend on your unique anatomy and aesthetic goals. During your consultation, Dr. Brown will offer a custom approach for your specific situation.

A common procedure to help correct asymmetry is breast lift, in which tissue is removed from the larger breast, raising it higher onto the chest. If the breasts differ greatly in size, the lift procedure may also be accompanied by either a reduction of the larger breast, or by augmentation of the smaller.
