Differential Augmentation For Breast Asymmetry
August 26th, 2012
Mild breast asymmetry is not uncommon. Most women live with this all their life without even realising they have it. Unfortunately, sometimes asymmetry can be quite marked and noticeable. This can be source of distress for for some women, especially if one breast is very small and other has marked ptosis (breast droop).
Four types of asymmetry are noted. The first two, Type I and Type II, are not very difficult to correct as the asymmetry is not very striking. These are either corrected by augmenting one side (needed with type I) or by reducing one side (as in type II). Type III and IV are complicated and need careful assessment and correction. They may take more than one surgery. In cosmetic breast surgery, the correction of the later types III and IV is most challenging and the client needs an experienced and skillful surgeon. Although it is challenging and difficult surgery, it is very rewarding for the cosmetic breast surgeon when the desired results are achieved and the patient is happy.
