What is Breast Asymmetry?
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.
