It is normal to have slight asymmetries between your breasts. Often one breast will be more developed than the other, or will have a slightly different shape than the other breast. Nipple / areola size and shape differences can also be a source of asymmetry. While such asymmetries are often minimal, some women have more than just slight asymmetry and feel like their breasts are completely different. This can be a source of significant emotional, social, and functional distress for women.
As a board certified cosmetic plastic surgeon, Dr. Asif Pirani is experienced in addressing such breast asymmetry. There are many options to treat breast asymmetry regardless of the degree of asymmetry.
Dr. Pirani uses a number of surgical techniques to achieve breast symmetry, depending on the nature of one’s breast asymmetry. Often this involves using breast augmentation techniques with either fat grafting or breast implants. Breast mastopexy or lift / reduction techniques are also needed at times. Nipple areola complex reduction techniques can be used to address asymmetries of the nipple and areola. In most cases, a combination of the above techniques is needed.
Regardless of the nature of your breast asymmetry, Toronto plastic surgeon Dr. Asif Pirani will provide you with a detailed consultation and physical examination to formulate a custom surgical plan to help you achieve improved breast symmetry.
