The first thing to point out is that some degree of asymmetry is common, for the more significant cases, there are a variety of techniques that we employ depending on what the problem is. For example, if you’re having a breast reduction and one side is bigger, we simply remove more tissue from the biggest side. Or if you want implants and one side is smaller, then I’ll use a bigger implant on the smaller side. Often an implant alone will mask a minor asymmetry. For women where one breast is just completely different to the other breast, then I’ll increase or decrease one breast to match the other side depending on which is the preferred size.

The important thing to remember is that no matter how accurately we perform the surgery, there will still be minor asymmetries after your operation. However, it should not be an obvious difference, and it will be much closer than it was before the surgery.
