Can Uneven Breasts be Corrected During Breast Reduction Surgery?
September 26, 2014
It is quite common for women to have uneven breasts. They may be uneven in volume or different nipple shape or size, or uneven nipple position or the breasts may be different shapes. Some women choose to live with their asymmetry while others seek options to even them out. Especially if the woman has a hard time finding bras to fit without having to pad one side, and/or finding clothes to fit properly.
Today there are many ways to achieve symmetry and have the breasts nicely contoured. During a consultation with Dr. Delgado, he will explain all options and determine what the patient wants her breasts to ultimately look like.
There are several reasons that the breasts may be asymmetric, including; location of the nipples, location of the breast fold, amount of breast tissue, previous biopsies, congenital deformities such as Poland syndrome.
For the woman that has uneven breasts, it is common to reduce one or enlarge one to achieve symmetry. There can be quite a combination of procedures to achieve this such as; a breast lift, breast reduction, breast implants and fat transfers.
In a study done by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, women who have had surgery to correct breast asymmetry and/or breast reduction, have a significant increase in self-esteem. Dr. Delgado has found this to be true with his patients, over and over again.
If you have asymmetric breasts and/or are in need of a breast reduction, you are invited to call (415 898-4161) or email ([email protected]) for a consultation with Dr. Delgado, who is a breast surgery specialist.
