No pair of breasts is perfectly identical, and it is not uncommon for women to notice a visual difference in the size of one or another, especially when without clothing, in front of a mirror.
When one of the two breasts look noticeably larger, even when under clothing, it can be hard to feel comfortable with your body, or confident in showing your figure. When summer arrives, asymmetrical breasts can make bikinis and swimsuits feel exposing rather than empowering, and finding a top that fits properly and doesn’t look lopsided is a challenge for many women.
Correcting breast asymmetry can bring a renewed sense of confidence and vitality in patients of any age, even after other breast surgeries, and Dr. Hoefflin is here to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
In some cases, the patients that come to our office have already undergone breast revision surgeries, and are unhappy with an uneven size and shape. In addition to addressing natural breast asymmetry, Dr. Hoefflin can also correct asymmetry that is caused by mismatched implants or the difference between a natural breast and an implant. This will usually take a few more steps and may involve double implants. In any case, you will be able to discuss your aesthetic goals, your current issues, and what you hope to achieve during your consultation with Dr. Hoefflin. Every patient is different, and it is Dr. Hoefflin’s goal to see every patient is satisfied and pleased with the outcome. The number of surgeries required can also vary, and Dr. Hoefflin will set up a personalized treatment plan with you to work towards a body shape that makes you feel confident and empowered.
There are various ways to approach breast asymmetry correction in natural breasts. If you prefer the look of the smaller breast, it is possible to undergo a reduction and lift in the larger one, for a natural, balanced result. If you prefer the larger one, Dr. Hoefflin can use implants to increase the size of the smaller breast. He may also use a second implant in the larger breast to give them equal lift and bounce, as implants do behave somewhat differently than natural breast tissue.
The size of the implants varies, depending on your preference. Some patients choose to match their larger breast as closely as possible, while others choose to enlarge both breasts with implants. All of your options will be discussed during your consultation, and Dr. Hoefflin will collaborate with you to develop a unique treatment plan designed to address your specific concerns and aesthetic goals. The degree of scarring and stretching from surgery will vary from patient to patient, and depends on the size of the change, whether you are going in for a reduction or enhancement, and your skin type and quality.
