A Better Balance for Your Body & Reclaim Your Confidence
For many, the breasts are a primary source of their feeling of femininity. But when they aren't pleased with their bust, it can affect more than just their silhouette. Self-esteem, confidence, and sensuality are all tied to how one feels about their body, and when a part of you doesn’t feel right, your quality of life can be significantly diminished.
Dr. Steven Williams at Tri Valley Plastic Surgery has dedicated his career to helping people feel their best by looking their best. His decades of experience in plastic surgery have covered all forms of cosmetic procedures, including breast implants, breast augmentation, and breast asymmetry surgery, to help people feel better in their own bodies. Whether the asymmetry is the result of genetics, disease, or trauma, Dr. Williams and his team will provide you with the compassionate care and beautiful results you deserve.
Breasts are like fingerprints — no two are exactly alike. Think of breasts as sisters, not twins. Most people have slight differences in the shape, texture, or position between their breasts, but these dissimilarities are usually very minor and are easily overlooked. However, in some people, the differences are very noticeable and can impact their self-image and body esteem.
And for people who have been victims of accidents or undergone mastectomy or lumpectomy as part of their cancer treatments, the difference in their breasts can be a painful reminder of a traumatic time. For our patients in Oakland breast asymmetry may be noticed in differences between the breasts in size, shape, position, and texture. It may also present as a mismatch of the areolas or nipples. Fortunately, these issues can be corrected by using common breast augmentation techniques such as breast implants or fat transfer to the breasts.
Breast augmentation and implant procedures have proven to successfully correct almost any discrepancies in the breasts.
One breast is larger than the other. This can be present even when both breasts are small, and may be magnified by commonplace changes in the body, like weight gain, weight loss, or pregnancy.
Breast droop (ptosis) may be more pronounced in one breast than the other following a breakdown of the supportive tissue within the breast. This can be the result of nursing, aging, tuberous breast deformity, or other developmental changes. Shape asymmetry may also result from surgery.
The breasts may not sit in the same place on the chest relative to one another, i.e., one may be higher or lower than the other. This can occur due to genetics or body changes.
There may be significant differences in size, shape, position, or pigmentation of the areolae.
Nipples may vary in size, shape, and position.
Through breast asymmetry surgery Oakland patients may see improvements beyond simply improving their appearance. These can include:
There are both surgical and non-surgical options for breast asymmetry correction in Oakland. During your consultation, you and Dr. Williams will determine which approach is the best fit for you and your condition.
Fillers — These are ideal for more minor corrections. Dermal fillers can be used to gently adjust the shape and texture of the breasts to match.
Fat grafting — Fat is removed from one area of the body (usually the belly, hips, buttocks, or thighs) and injected into the breasts. This procedure is able to make more significant changes than with fillers, but results may not be long-lasting.
Breast implants — Implants provide the most substantial and lasting improvement in breast symmetry. Typically, both breasts are augmented simultaneously to provide the maximum positive effect.
Breast revision — This procedure typically combines a surgical reconstruction of the breasts with implantations. Here, the breast, areola, and nipple can be reshaped and repositioned as needed to create the ideal appearance and contours.
