At Geoplasty Plastic Surgery, we formulate a treatment plan and combine various techniques, so that we can offer the best solution with the best outcome for you.
What breast asymmetry is
Most women have some asymmetry between the two breasts: in size, shape, position and/or nipple placement. In most cases the difference is insignificant, while in others it may be less or more apparent.
Breast asymmetry may be attributed to:
- Congenital disorders, such as growth asymmetry of the breasts, which is the most common type, tuberous breast deformity or Poland syndrome.
- Acquired conditions, such as after simple or total mastectomy, injuries or burns to the breast.
- Botched breast surgery.
A breast size difference that is marked, and by extension unattractive, may evoke negative emotions in women, as well as difficulties in dressing. In this case, it may be corrected effectively with surgery.
Breast asymmetry correction is virtually indicated for breast difference equal to one or more cup size. If the difference is smaller, but the patient values detail and her issue is the absolute symmetry of her breasts, the correction is performed with simpler rehabilitation techniques.
How breast asymmetry correction is performed
Breast asymmetry correction procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia.
Before the procedure, a detailed medical history is obtained, and a preoperative check-up is performed.
There are many state-of-the-art techniques in plastic surgery which can be used for breast asymmetry correction. The most suitable ones are based on separate or combined use of the following techniques:
- Breast augmentation with silicone or fat
- Breast reduction
- Breast lift / Mastopexy
- Breast reconstruction
- Fat transfer, which is the most common technique that concludes the procedure.
Given that the breast asymmetry problem is complex, its treatment is not a simple procedure. To formulate a treatment plan and decide on which technique or combination of techniques to use, depending on the circumstances, Dr Georgopoulos assesses factors such as:
- Anatomy of the breasts (separately and comparatively) and the chest.
- Causes of breast asymmetry.
- Your age.
- Breast asymmetry classification.
- Correction in one or both of the breasts.
Due to his surgical perception and experience, Dr Georgopoulos identifies the problem he has to deal with and comes up with the best solution and outcome for you. Therefore, the breast asymmetry problem is guaranteed to be left behind.
What the possible complications of breast asymmetry correction are
Possible side effects or complications that may arise after breast asymmetry correction surgery depend on the technique or techniques which eventually will be selected and performed.
They are no different from breast augmentation, reduction, lift or reconstruction surgeries. So, for further information you may visit the corresponding sections of our website.
