Breast asymmetry refers to when one breast is a different size, shape or position than the other. Majority of women have mild breast asymmetry. However, when the asymmetry is significant it may affect a person’s body image, self-esteem and confidence.
How Breast Asymmetry looks
What causes it
What causes Breast Asymmetry?
Many women have asymmetrical breasts during puberty, and about 25% of these women will have lasting breast asymmetry into adulthood.
Asymmetry is common during the development of breasts in adolescence. Commonly, breast asymmetry resolves by the time breasts are fully developed(typically by age 18). The final degree of breast asymmetry cannot be determined until this time.
Injury to breast tissue before or after it has fully developed can lead to breast asymmetry. Possible injuries are trauma, infection, or radiation to one side of the chest.
Depending on a patient’s needs, a combination of treatment procedures are needed to get the desired results.
Patients who have asymmetrical breast size may be happy with the volume of the smaller breast, and choose to undergo reduction of the larger breast instead. During the procedure, tissues are surgically removed and repositioned resulting in a smaller breast.
