Plastic Surgery for New York City (NYC), Manhattan and all of New York (NY)

New York breast augmentation surgeon Dr. George Lefkovits is often asked if breast asymmetry is common and if it can be corrected? Read on to learn the answers: Breast asymmetry is the disparity between the form, position, volume or size of the breasts. This condition can make it difficult for women to find clothes that fit correctly, bras that provide sufficient coverage and comfort, and feeling confident with their bodies. Many women have some degree of breast asymmetry, and this is very common. However, some women have more severe cases than others. In the end, the primary concern that women have is whether their breast asymmetry can be corrected. In most instances, asymmetry can be addressed through surgery. There are some options that can be used in combination to correct breast asymmetry:

  • Breast implants
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast lift

Breast asymmetry surgery in any form or combination can provide tremendous benefit to women. When meeting our surgeon for a consultation, we can help you determine the best procedure for your needs. Some women may prefer breast implants to even out their breast sizes, while some others would prefer to reduce the size of their breasts. In some cases, a breast lift is enough to correct the appearance of asymmetry. In several cases, a combination of breast implants and a breast lift can produce superior results. The procedure that you choose will depend on your cosmetic goals and recommendations we may make. While many considerations for the method that you select depend upon personal preference, there may be some surgical factors to take into consideration before making a decision. Sometimes the larger breast with breast asymmetry has a significantly larger areola, which means that there may be additional surgery required. Some other women may have rib abnormalities or other syndromes that produces asymmetry, which can be addressed with multiple procedures not only focusing on breast tissue. The most important thing to do is remember that your breast asymmetry can be corrected by our surgeon.
