Patients who are concerned about breast asymmetry may consider breast surgery to create more symmetrical breasts. While slight asymmetry is extremely common, women who suffer from pronounced asymmetry of the breasts may be quite self conscious about their appearance. Fortunately, there are a number of breast surgery options available for women who want to create more symmetry in the breasts.
Breasts which are asymmetrical in terms of placement on the body can also be corrected through breast surgery. This may include breasts in which one sags significantly lower than the other. To correct this asymmetry, a lift of the lower breast may be required. Additionally, relocation of the nipple and areola may also be necessary to achieve symmetry.
