Very few women have breasts that are exactly the same. The majority of women experience some degree of breast asymmetry, which can be improved with breast implants. You may see this asymmetry in:
- Breast size
- Breast shape
- Breast position
Breast augmentation is commonly used to improve the symmetry of breasts. One breast implant can be used to increase the size of the smaller breast, although many women prefer to have both breasts augmented with implants of different sizes.
Breast asymmetry can be devastating. You may feel self-conscious about the appearance of your breasts, even when covered by clothing. If your breasts have been asymmetrical since puberty, you may have lived with this dissatisfaction for years. Breast augmentation is an effective way to make your breasts symmetrical, with the added benefit of increasing volume and improving overall breast shape.
If you do not wish to augment your breasts, breast reduction may be suggested to make the larger breast smaller. A breast lift may also be suggested if you are dissatisfied with any sagginess of your breast skin.
