Breast Asymmetry Surgery

Most women have breasts which are minimally asymmetric or slightly different with respect to size, shape and/or position.  They may notice a slight difference in how they “fill out” their bra or may not even be aware of any difference.  However, for a small number of women, their breast asymmetry may be more pronounced and noticeable.  Such pronounced asymmetry may arise unexpectedly during pubertal breast development or may be attributable to specific congenital or birth defects.  Alternatively, chest wall trauma, surgery or burns in childhood can affect female breast development and create significant breast asymmetry.  For these women, surgical breast asymmetry correction may be appropriate.

Because of the number, variability and complexity of the issues that may contribute to create pronounced breast asymmetry, there is no one specific surgery that is invariably performed for each of these patients.  Instead, what is typically required in treating such patients is the selective use of multiple breast surgical techniques including, but not limited to, breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lifting and breast reconstruction.  Moreover, these techniques are applied differently with respect to each breast in order to reestablish breast symmetry with respect to size, shape and position.  These surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia lasting 2-4 hours.  Incisions are variable and drain use may be required.  Most women are able to return to work in 1-2 weeks.  Correction of breast asymmetry can be performed at any time after breast development is complete and may represent a “covered” procedure under certain health insurance policies, especially when performed on young women prior to child-bearing who may be experiencing self-consciousness and embarrassment due to uneven breast size.

When considering breast asymmetry correction surgery, it is particularly important that you select a qualified plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) who is experienced in the surgical correction of pronounced breast asymmetry and who operates in a State Licensed, Nationally Accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (see ‘about Keystone Surgery Center’).  As a board certified plastic surgeon with over 15 years of clinical practice experience and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (The Mark of Distinction in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery® ASAPS), Dr. Robert Kimmel welcomes the opportunity to help you achieve your goals and enjoy a happier, more confident lifestyle.

We are proud to serve patients from Scranton, Allentown, and Harrisburg.
