Most women who visit The Bougainvillea Clinique of Winter Park, Florida have routine requests when it comes to breast augmentation. Many want to change previous breast augmentation results or achieve an increase in overall size and volume. However, this isn’t always the case. Dr. Jeffrey Hartog also sees women who are interested in correcting breast asymmetry that can naturally occur, where one breast is larger than the other. This is often known as breast augmentation for the purpose of achieving symmetry for cosmetic purposes.
What causes breast asymmetry?
There are a few different situations in which a woman might experience asymmetry of her breasts. In some instances, it’s a developmental issue and women just naturally have one breast of a different size when compared to the other. This can make it difficult to find bras and other garments that fit properly. Asymmetry may also occur in situations where women have had previous breast augmentation procedures and are experiencing the results of an inexperienced plastic surgeon who was unable to achieve proper symmetry.
How is breast asymmetry fixed?
This reconstructive procedure is often performed to achieve proper symmetry between the two breasts, ensuring they are in the same position on the chest, the same size, and the same volume. Doing this may include the use of breast implants, or in some cases, fat transfers where fat cells are harvested from somewhere else on the body with liposuction and reinjected into the breasts to make subtle changes. The difference in asymmetry will usually dictate which procedure is best.
What size implants should I have?
In some instances, women just want to balance the size and shape of the breasts while maintaining their natural size. In other cases, women might also consider increasing the size of their breast while placing implants for a more dramatic improvement while balancing the breasts as desired. The size of the implants used in this procedure will be chosen by the patient with the assistance of Dr. Jeffrey Hartog.
