Breasts come in a wide variety of shapes, dimensions, and appearances, and a prevalent concern for women considering breast enhancement in the UK is a chest gap, which results in insufficient cleavage. This problem can be addressed with breast implants, but it is essential to select a highly proficient and seasoned plastic surgeon at Centre for Surgery, as improper implant selection and positioning may exacerbate the issue following the procedure.

Is normal to have a space between my breasts?
The shape, size, and natural spacing of breasts differ from person to person. This space is influenced by the attachment point of the pectoralis muscles to the sternum. A flat ribcage may lead to a more significant gap in some women, while others may experience this due to an indented breastbone.
A congenital breast condition known as tubular or tuberous breasts can also contribute to a wider-than-usual space between the breasts. This condition causes constriction at the base of the breasts, resulting in a tubular shape and, subsequently, an increased gap.
Breast spacing is an entirely normal variation in human anatomy, and it’s essential to appreciate and accept your body’s unique features. However, if you find that the gap between your breasts is causing discomfort or affecting your self-esteem, there are options available to address the issue. One such solution is breast augmentation.
Three primary factors contributing to wide-set breasts
Breast enhancement is a sought-after cosmetic surgery method to rectify wide-set breasts, but meticulous planning is crucial to avoid exacerbating the issue.
Our plastic surgeons will thoroughly evaluate your distinct anatomy and address any underlying conditions to guarantee the most satisfactory results. If tuberous breasts are the cause, they may need to alleviate the constriction at the breast base before implant placement.
Breast implant selection
Choosing the right implant is often crucial in addressing the problem of a prominent chest gap. The implant width should correspond to the breast base, as implants that are too narrow or highly projected can make a wider cleavage appear even more noticeable.
During the surgery at our Baker Street clinic, our plastic surgeons will create a pocket for the implant. The pocket’s lower portion is determined by the breast crease or inframammary fold or IMF for short, and the outer portion must be carefully outlined to avoid lateral displacement of the implant after the surgery.
Breast augmentation, when done correctly, can help reduce the gap between wide-set breasts and improve the overall appearance. However, it’s essential to consult with an experienced and qualified plastic surgeon to discuss your concerns and understand the available options. They will guide you in choosing the most appropriate course of action, considering factors like your body shape, natural breast size, and the extent of the gap between your breasts. This personalized approach will ensure the best possible results and help you achieve the desired outcome, boosting your confidence and comfort with your body.
Addressing the Gap Between Your Breasts: Effective Procedures
Closing the chest gap with breast augmentation
Breast augmentation surgery is a well-known procedure that can address a lack of cleavage or an excessively wide space between the breasts. To achieve the best results, it is crucial to work with a proficient surgeon. Our experienced plastic surgeons often combine breast augmentation with fat transfer to the breast, providing greater control in sculpting the final outcome, particularly in the upper portion of the breast.

Restoring cleavage through mastopexy
Over time, gravity can cause breasts to sag, leading to a more elongated and drooping appearance. This can result in a widening gap between the breasts. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a procedure that can counteract these effects. Our surgeons will expertly reposition and reshape the breast tissue, creating a more youthful, uplifted appearance and rejuvenated cleavage.
