Breast Asymmetry

Breast Asymmetry Surgery in Atlanta, GA

Surprisingly, most women will experience breast asymmetry during their lifetime. When this occurs, one breast will appear uneven in size, volume, position, or form.

These breast fluctuations can result from puberty, breastfeeding, genetics, or hormonal changes due to pregnancy and menopause. The asymmetry may come and go and is usually not significant. For some women, the asymmetry is persistent and quite severe, possibly causing emotional distress and physical discomfort. Dr. Crispin offers surgical solutions to create a more balanced, natural contour.

What are my Surgical Options to Correct Breast Asymmetry?’

Taking into account your unique anatomy, Dr. Crispin may correct your asymmetric breasts with one of the following procedures:

 

1) Breast Augmentation

This procedure is best if you want to increase the overall size or fullness of your breasts or match the size and shape of your larger breast. Dr. Crispin will place implants that may vary in size in the breast or breasts being treated to achieve a natural, symmetrical look. Crispin Plastic Surgery offers all implants available, such as Gummy Bear, Silicone, Teardrop and Saline. Together, you and Dr. Crispin will decide on the best implant option during your initial consultation.

 

2) Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty)

Some patients prefer the size of smaller breasts. In a breast reduction, tissue is removed from the larger breast by excision.

 

3) Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Excess skin and may contribute to sagging, asymmetric breasts. A breast lift removes the extra skin and tightens the breast tissue. The result is a perkier, balanced contour. Many patients require a combination of a lift and reduction. These two procedures can be performed at the same time.

What are my Recovery Times for Breast Asymmetry Corrective Surgery?

Most patients may return to work or their regular routines within 5 to 7 days of surgery. Strenuous exercise may be resumed after 30 days. We ask that all patients refrain from vigorous physical activity for 2 months post-surgery.

FAQs: Breast Asymmetry

 
1) At what age can I have asymmetry corrective surgery? When do breasts stop growing?

Dr. Crispin recommends delaying this surgery until your breasts stop growing, typically when you are around 18 years old. However, weight changes, pregnancy and older age can alter the size of breasts.

 

2) I’ve gained a significant amount of weight, and one breast is now larger than the other. Will my breast go back to “normal” size if I lose the weight?

With weight loss, the substance or gland of the breast is decreased in size, but the skin will only shrink so much to accommodate the smaller gland. Along with this, you will develop some droop to the breast.

 

3) What are tubular breasts? How are tubular breasts fixed?

Tubular breasts are the result of a congenital abnormality. The breasts may be elongated, display droopy areola hypertrophy—the areola size is larger than normal— and/or with extremely large nipples. This condition may affect one or both breasts.
Corrective surgery entails broadening the constricted base of the breast with radial incisions internally and adding an implant. At times, it will be necessary to also decrease the width and the protrusion of the nipple areolar complex with an incision around the complex.

    I always wanted an hour-glass figure and now I have one thanks to Dr. Crispin. Dr. Crispin did my breasts and liposuction on my belly. He made me feel at ease to talk about all my concerns and he took the time to review all my options with me. The surgery and recovery were seamless thanks to him and his staff. I would, and have recommended him to many of my friends and have a growing list of the next things I would love him to work on ;).
    I love my new body. Thanks.
