Breast asymmetry is a common issue among women and for those who are really uncomfortable with the difference, breast asymmetry surgery may offer a satisfying solution.

Some women live in embarrassment about their breasts. While many are uncomfortable with the size of their breasts whether they are too big or small and many others worry about an uneven chest, or breast asymmetry. This is when one breast is larger than the other one or one is of a different shape than the other. The effect in either case is an unbalanced look, often resulting in embarrassment and lowered self-esteem for the individual.

If you have a size or shape difference between your breasts, we can improve it with breast asymmetry corrective surgery. Treatment may include a breast augmentation, breast lift or a breast reduction – whichever is the right approach for you.

Many women with more major degrees of breast asymmetry may have a condition called Poland’s Syndrome.

What is Breast Asymmetry?

Many women have noticed that they have a slight difference in the shape and size of their breasts. Other parts of our body are not symmetrical and this is also the case with breast tissue. In most cases this is mild and may not be severe enough to consider surgery. Breast asymmetry is not considered a dangerous disorder unless your breasts have recently developed asymmetry. If you have noticed any recent change in your breast shape or a discharge from your nipple we would advise you to schedule an appointment with your General Practitioner. Poland’s syndrome can cause breast asymmetry:

  • Poland’s syndrome is thought to be caused by insufficient blood supply to the breast area when you were a baby
  • It results in a reduction in size of the affected breast and sometimes the underlying chest muscle and rib cage
  • It is more common on the right side
  • It is more common in males but more noticeable in females due to their increased breast development
  • It can be associated with abnormalities in the arm and hand on that side
  • Most cases of differences between the sizes and shapes of the breasts are not due to Poland’s syndrome and the reason some people have this condition is unclear.

If you are concerned that your breasts are different it might be worth arranging a consultation with a Surgeon at Centre for Surgery to discuss what can be done to improve this.

What Does The Treatment Involve?

The best solution for you varies between each person as the appearance of breast asymmetry is variable. Questions you should ask yourself are:

  • Do you prefer the volume of the larger or smaller breast?
  • Do you think your nipples are in a low position?
  • Are your nipples and the brown area around them (the areola) normal?
  • Are your breast a normal shape?

Depending on the answers to these questions you may require surgery to one or both of your breasts. This can involve:

  • A breast reduction of your larger breast
  • A breast enlargement of your smaller breast
  • A breast uplift (mastopexy) on one or both of your breast if the nipple is in a low position
  • Surgery to reduce the size of one or both of your areolas (the brown area around your nipple)
  • Surgery to reduce the prominence of your areolas if they are domed and raised
  • In many cases a combination of the above procedures is needed to improve the symmetry of your bust.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate?

Breast asymmetry surgery is opted by those who wish to achieve a natural ’rounded’ appearance without implants.

Some women suffer from ‘tuberous’ breasts, where the breasts are shaped like tubes and have a narrow base and the base of the breast is tubular shaped rather than the normal ‘cone’ shape. Others suffer for a rare condition called ‘Polands Syndrome’, where one side of the breast fails to develop because the tissues responsible for its development are missing.

Benefits Of Breast Asymmetry Surgery

Both breasts will appear equally proportionate and alike and clothes will fit much better. Most women feel more confident and have a positive body image after their initial surgery.

The procedure can help you achieve a much rounder, toner and firmer appearance of the breasts overall.

Risks Of Breast Asymmetry Surgery

The complications associated with the procedure are minimal and can be avoided with maximum safety optimisation. Some of the risks are infection and bleeding, chest pain or shortness of breath, and temporary or permanent loss of sensation on the breasts.

The Breast Asymmetry Surgery Recovery Process

A one night stay at one of our local partner hotels is usually necessary. You can find out more about your likely recovery by looking at the following sections of our website:

  • Breast reduction
  • Breast enlargement
  • Breast uplift
  • Nipple surgery

Breast Asymmetry Surgery Results

Stable results are common in women over 18 as their breasts are no longer growing. Some breast reduction and breast uplift techniques can lower your chance of successfully breastfeeding future babies. The aim of breast asymmetry surgery is to make your breasts look more symmetrical. In many cases, it is not possible to achieve absolute symmetry between your breasts. The aim of surgery is improvement rather than perfection. However, breast asymmetry surgery should permanently improve the size and shape discrepancies between your breasts.

All I can say is absolutely brilliant! This is the first time I've ever had cosmetic surgery so you can imagine how nervous I was. Even though it was a small procedure (umbilicoplasty with scar removal) Mr Tillo and the team made me feel extremely relaxed and calm to the point where I actually enjoyed my procedure! The aftercare is also amazing. Any queries I may have I contact the team and I almost instantly get a reply. I highly recommend the surgery!

My first consultation was an excellent experience. My consultant Dr. Omar Tillo was extremely approachable and attentive to what I had to say and want. He knew exactly what I wanted and I immediately knew he was the man for the job. The day came for my procedure and 6 hours later, hey presto....the rest is history! Miraculous recovery, excellent before, during and aftercare service. Thank you Centre for Surgery for everything. Without a doubt I totally recommend choosing them for a better you.

I recently had a procedure performed by Mr Sinha. The consultation was very thorough and he took time to answer my questions, with really impressive knowledge and enthusiasm which is reassuring. The procedure went smoothly and he personally called me to check on my progress. Fantastic aftercare and a really lovely team, happy to recommend them to anyone.

Have thought about labiaplasty surgery since having the twins, I finally took the plunge and booked in to see a consultant plastic surgeon. I didn't realise that the surgery was performed as an outpatient, so meant I could go home the same day! I was surprised by how little pain there was afterwards. They gave me a 7 day course of antibiotics to take as a precaution, but I don't think I needed them. Very pleased with the result and glad that Mr Sinha was my surgeon.

The ongoing middle age spread battle meant I cheated, and had liposuction at CoS. The doctor (Perrone) was a great listener and understood my reservations. We figured out my actual needs, he listened to my preferences and the lipo was a real success. Big thumbs up to Dr P and especially Nikesh for his regular phonecalls to check how I was doing. Really appreciate the post op care, thanks.

I just wanted to describe my experience after seeing Mr Tsounis for rhinoplasty. I found it reassuring that he's a specialist (only performs nose reshaping). The swelling has taken a little while to settle, but results are really showing and the natural look is just what i wanted. Many thanks to you and your excellent team.

At first I was very worried about going ahead with my surgery as any surgery has its risks and I had never gone outside of the NHS. However, after receiving a phone call from them I was instantly at ease as Gregory; the gentleman I spoke with, had previously undergone the same surgery. At first I wasn’t very open to talking about it as I found it very embarrassing, so to hear that someone was once in my shoes gave me the confidence to talk about it. Prior to the operation the Surgeon and I went over all of the details of my operation several times and I was very happy that they knew exactly what they were doing. I am extremely happy with the result of my Gynaecomastia treatment and so far I have minimal scarring. I’d like to thank the team for their aftercare service as I have had communication from their team every other day to ensure that my recovery was as smooth as possible and that I had everything I needed. Overall, a very professional and supportive team with expert surgeons. Highly recommend.

From day one my experience with Centre for Surgery and all the staff has been fantastic, I literally could not fault them. On the day of surgery I was very nervous but there was a lovely lady their who was looking after me (Kat) anaesthetist was friendly and very quick, my partner was able to stay with me until I got taken in for surgery, although I don't remember him being their, was sedated but talking, no memory of this at all, felt as though I went to sleep and woke up after it was all over. Professor Alberto who done my surgery done an amazing job, so so happy. Michelle made all my appointments, was always available when I had questions to ask and overall a lovely lady. Everyone made me feel comfortable, would highly recommend.

Mr Ardeshir did my fat transfer procedure and I all i can say is what a fab result so far. 750cc were grafted to each buttock and the volume improvement is just what I was hoping for.

If you are looking for precision plastic surgery with a personalised service - look no further than centre for surgery. I had some skin tags removed around my eyes with radiosurgery by Mr Vakasin and I was just impressed by how they treat you before, during and after the procedure. After having read all the horror stories about some clinics I can say that centre for surgery is without the doubt the most competent of all the clinics i visited for consultation.

Just wanted to say thank you to all the staff at Centre for Surgery who looked after me during my facelift procedure. I did not feel or hear a thing during the surgery and woke up without any hangover or dizziness afterwards. Dr Alam and Dr Vakasin were amazing and the final result is simply superb. I can totally recommend this clinic to all those who are considering expertly performed facial cosmetic surgery!. A big thank you also to Michelle who was so warm and friendly and constantly checked up on me throughout the whole process.

I had a consultation with Dr Alam for hair transplant surgery and found him to be open and honest about all aspects of the procedure. I had FUE with 1500 grafts and although it is quite early, the results are just as I hoped for. The procedure was done under local anaesthetic and was virtually pain-free. I am surprised about the lack of swelling and I would highly recommend Dr Alam for hair restoration surgery.

I had an open rhinoplasty 2 weeks ago. I must say i was a little nervous but the surgeon Dr Vakasin really put me at ease and explained the whole process. The surgery went smoothly and i just had the splints removed last week. The result is exactly what i wanted and the swelling and bruising is actually much less than what I thought it would be. A big thumbs up to the team and Dr Vakasin in particular.

Liposuction is something I was thinking of for some time to get rid of excess fat around my tummy and hips. I am very impressed with the results - the doctors were extremely skilled especially Dr Alam. The before and after photos look great and I would highly recommend this place for liposuction. Also a big thank you to the whole team, their before and aftercare was exceptional. Thank You all very much.
