When we envision a woman’s chest, we may realize that breast tissue may be large or small. What we don’t often consider is that most women have a size discrepancy between their breasts. In most cases, this size variance is so slight that it’s barely noticed. Sometimes, though, the imbalance is so significant that a woman finds it difficult to fit into clothing. Breast asymmetry can make the very idea of wearing a bathing suit unpleasant. Clothing and bras may only be adequately filled out with the help of a breast form.
Usually, breast asymmetry is a cosmetic problem; albeit a big one. A doctor should be consulted if breast asymmetry occurs suddenly due to the rapid and substantial growth of one breast. In this instance, a thorough examination with breast screening will be performed to rule out breast cancer or other abnormal tissue growth.
A woman who wants to gain symmetry in the size of her breasts can do so, and it may not be in the way that is assumed. It is not uncommon to presume that breast augmentation is the way to better breasts. In many cases it is, but not all. Some women prefer the size of the smaller breast. These women need a viable solution for their unique problem, and they can find it at Keystone Cosmetic Surgery Center.
Breast symmetry can be improved in a number of ways, including the enlargement of the smaller breast, the reduction of the larger breast, and the resizing of nipples and areolae as needed. Each procedure to correct breast asymmetry is carefully planned around the needs of the patient and her preferences. There is no “right” solution in every situation. In fact, most breast corrections involve a combination of techniques to achieve the most natural-looking results.
