Breast asymmetry is present in around 10% of women. In most cases, one breast is flatter and smaller than the other. As a woman ages, the difference between the two breasts can become even more pronounced, since the smaller breast tends to remain flat while the larger one grows bigger. Thankfully, this asymmetry can be corrected using one of two methods:
- A breast augmentation that increases the size of the smaller breast
- A breast reduction that reduces the size of the larger breast
These surgeries can also be combined to achieve the best symmetry. For example, a breast reduction may be performed on one breast, while a breast augmentation is performed on the other, providing you with a proportional look and volume that meets your cosmetic goals. During a breast surgery consultation, Dr. Desman will work with you to develop a personalized surgical approach.
