Breast asymmetry

This where the two breasts differ, both in shape and volume. This unsightly asymmetry, which may be either congenital or acquired, often imposes a psychological burden on women.

To correct this asymmetry of the breasts, your surgeon will sometimes resort to breast implants of different sizes in order to match the chest; and sometimes he will resort to breast reduction in order to equalize the curve and volume of your chest.

Often, your surgeon will employ different techniques in conjunction, in order to render your breasts symmetrical:

installation of breast implants, breast reduction and mastopexy, i.e. correction of ptosis (sagging, ageing) and the shape of the breast.



It goes without saying that this type of aesthetic procedure is extremely personalized and must be discussed with your surgeon. One thing is certain, though: your procedure will be carried out under general anaesthesia in outpatient hospital surgery. Everything else, including the duration of the procedure, the scars, the duration of the resulting temporary disability and the time required to obtain the final result, depends on both the result desired and the techniques suggested by your surfgeon.

Although every surgical procedure may involve some risks and complications that the patient has no option but to accept, your aesthetic surgeon will make a point of reducing their likelihood of appearing by choosing the technique best suited to your medical condition. Complications such as bleeding, wound or prosthetic infections and healing failure, although relatively rare, can occur with any type of surgery.
